The Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center recently held a symposium “Cosmetic Breast Surgery—Improving Patient Outcomes” sponsored in conjunction with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. This two day workshop featured lectures and physician attendees could observe Dr Mark Mandell-Brown perform surgery through live video displayed in his seminar room.
Cosmetic surgeons throughout the United States and Australia attended the cosmetic breast seminar. According to 3 physicians who travelled from Australia just for the workshop, Dr Mandell-Brown and his faculty gave great tips for improving patient results. Dr Michael Szalay, from Queensland, Australia commented, “Dr Mandell-Brown takes the time to explain how to improve breast augmentation and breast lifting procedures. Traveling this distance was definitely worth while.”
About 20 physicians attended the conference held at the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center including: Texas, Michigan, California, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, and Washington. The doctors experienced Cincinnati by attending a Reds baseball game as well as dining at the Celestial. Lunches were provided by Hungary Brothers Food Truck and Skyline Chili.
Dr Mark Mandell-Brown stated, “ It is a lot of work hosting and teaching a world class seminar like this. My staff really worked hard as we wanted to put Cincinnati on the map for these doctors. Teaching breast augmentation procedures as well as showing off our great city is a great opportunity.”
Procedures performed included: transaxillary breast augmentation, infra-mammary breast augmentation, breast reduction surgery, breast lift surgery, and gynecomastia (male breasts) liposuction.
The Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center is committed to providing the highest quality of care in cosmetic surgery. Didactic programs are directed to qualified physicians who desire to expand their knowledge and skill. Through a combination of lectures, live surgery observation, and fresh cadaver surgery, a physician can develop appropriate skills to incorporate procedures into their practice.
The Education Foundation has been created to foster cosmetic seminars in facial and body cosmetic surgery. Working in conjunction with local medical colleges, the participant has a unique opportunity to perform cosmetic procedures on fresh cadavers. This allows the cosmetic surgeon the ability to develop hands on experience with the latest surgical techniques.
Dr. Mandell-Brown serves as the course director. He gathers expert faculty to assist in teaching and they come from throughout the United States. Faculty include board certified plastic surgeons, board certified facial plastic surgeons, and board certified cosmetic surgeon.
Physicians have uniformly given the educational courses the highest ratings. Doctors have traveled from Singapore, Taiwan, Canada, England, as well as all parts of the United States to participate in the workshops.
