3rd Stuttgart Symposium on Nasal Reconstruction with Live Surgery

Our first and second symposium on nasal reconstruction in March 2015 and April 2017 had been very successful, instructive, and encouraging events and we were often asked for a continuation. We decided to combine a third symposium on nasal reconstruction in 2020 with our 28th Stuttgart Advanced Course for Rhinoplasty. For the first time we offer 2 days of nasal reconstruction beginning with one day live surgery reconstruction procedures Friday, April 24th, transmitted also from 2 theaters, immediately after the 2 Rhinoplasty live surgery days.

Nose reconstruction is our most challenging field of Facial Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. The development of techniques is permanently going on. Thus updating on proofed procedures is one of our objectives for a new symposium.

The main topics will be the concepts concerning partial and total three layer defects of the nose, which means reconstruction of lining, framework and cover. Again we also want to give the participants the chance to present cases and discuss solutions altogether. The way for submission you will soon find on the website. For the preliminary program we are happy to announce Frederick Menick from Tucson, Arizona and his outstanding teaching in our faculty again. His major contributions always inspired us to solve difficult surgical problems and pass current limitations. He will present his experience of 50 consecutive cases of radial forearm flaps for lining. His outstanding two volume book on „Aesthetic Nasal Reconstruction“ will be available at the symposium again.

Joachim Quetz from Kiel, Germany, is also highly specialised in complex nose reconstruction and will present his preferred techniques – also available in his many publications. Jong-Woo Choi from Korea again will contribute Asian aspects of nasal reconstruction.

Welcome again to Stuttgart, no matter if you just want to take part in the symposium on nasal reconstruction or also take the chance to learn more about rhinoplasty in the preceding live surgery course. One field inspires the other and we look forward to share that with you.

Book your seat for the 3rd Stuttgart Symposium on Nasal Reconstruction.
