In an unprecedented move of worldwide goodwill, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) had Tunisia host the society’s annual three-day congress on plastic surgery.
Aptly, the theme of this year’s convention was “Aesthetic surgery education worldwide”. This prestigious occasion is the very first of its kind in the Maghreb, with the ceremonies taking place in the Northern Suburbs of Tunis on October 11, 12 and 13 in cooperation with the generous sponsorship of the Ministry of Public Health. Various world-renowned expects and professionals came to participate in events over the course of the three days, including individuals from the United States, Tunsia, Morocco, France, Turkey, Italy, Japan, and Lebanon.
The first official day of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery conference began with a speech of welcome from Bouraoui Kotti from Tunisia, MD, course director and ISAPS National Secretary for Tunisia along with Nazem Cerks (Turkey) and Foad Nahai (USA). Their distinct introductions set the course for the varied conference to follow.
The conference managed to cover various topics from the Evolution of Aesthetic Surgery to more trendy topics including Periocular rejuvenation, Face and Neck rejuvenation. The theme for the second day was Aesthetic Breast Surgery where guests to the conference were able to share courses and predictions for the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery.
The Tunis Times, a local newspaper from Tunisia, was able to be on hand when selected guests were able to explain the diverse cultural aspects of the various procedures, such as Aesthetic Breast Surgery. According to the article, “Susumu Takayangi (Japan) explained that Asian women prefer medium size breast because they think it makes them look younger.”
Whereas “Bouraoui Kotti…confirmed the fact that Tunisian women prefer dressed results after the operation rather than Decollete.” Such dialogues allow the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to develop a dialogue on best practices to treat and assist the patient.
In gathering the medical professional together, new information can be shared that can benefit aesthetic surgery and contribute to better results and quicker healing time. According to the ISAPS congress objectives, there is a global appeal to achieve first-rate expectation despite limited materials.
In an effort to showcase stricter and more disciplined plastic and cosmetic surgery options, the three-day congress in Tunisia ended with two separate workshops. One workshop featured Galderma live injections by Dr. Samia Aoun Kanoun and the other Teoxane Live injections workshops by Dr. Fahd Benslimane. According to The Tunis Times, “these workshops reflect the high status of aesthetic surgery in Tunisia and highlighted the increasing interest of women in such surgical techniques.”
