What’s in Store at the 2019 Annual Breast Surgery Symposium

Last year, Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C., had the honor of celebrating our 50th year as the premier cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery center in the southeastern United States. Since our founding in 1968, we’ve strived to provide the absolute best in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, establishing strong, lasting relationships with our patients and setting the highest standards for patient care. Our ongoing goal is not only to consistently achieve seamless, natural-looking results for our patients, but also to continue to make substantial contributions to the ever-evolving field of plastic surgery. The world-renowned plastic surgeons with whom we partner go above and beyond in performing clinical work and fostering innovation. In a continuation of our surgeons’ professional efforts, we’re pleased to announce our participation in this year’s 35th Annual Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium.

Atlanta Night Traffic Blur (smaller)The Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium was originally established by Dr. Carl Hartrampf, a co-founder of Atlanta Plastic Surgery and breast reconstruction pioneer. The event has become internationally known in the plastic surgery community, hosting some of the most innovative and renowned plastic surgeons in the world. Members of our team will be among the hundreds of breast surgery experts in attendance, and playing important roles in the three-day event will be Atlanta Plastic Surgery’s own Dr. James Namnoum (symposium co-chair) and Dr. L. Franklyn Elliott (symposium emeritus chair), both of whom will be moderating panel discussions and presenting on important topics.

The title and central topic of this year’s program will be “How to Achieve Good Results After Common Complications.” The plastic surgery professionals in attendance will have the opportunity to learn from panel discussions on a wide range of topics, including breast enhancement and reconstruction procedures, transgender breast surgery, fat transfer, types of breast implants & other technologies, doctor-patient communication, surgical safety, and more. This year, the program promises to address current perspectives on emerging issues in the plastic surgery community, as well as strategies for enhancing and expanding surgical techniques.

Every year, some of plastic surgery’s leading experts perform live surgical demonstrations at the Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium. Like last year, these demonstrations will be performed at Northside Hospital and streamed live to the attendees at The Intercontinental Hotel and viewers around the world. As part of this year’s live telecasts, surgeons will perform transgender breast augmentation, “double bubble” correction after prior breast augmentation, and breast reconstruction with autologous mastectomy flaps & contralateral breast reduction. During these procedures, physicians observing remotely will be able to submit questions directly to the attending faculty to be answered in real time.
