About Optional Courses

The purpose of Optional Courses and Special Seminars is to provide the opportunity for in-depth exposure to specific techniques and topics, as well as more personalized contact with recognized leaders in aesthetic surgery.  The educational objectives are stated from the perspective of what the attendee can expect to implement into their practice or what they can expect to attain from participating in the course.  Special Seminars and Optional Courses will be held on Thursday, April 11 through Monday, April 15.
