South Beach Symposium Wrap-up

This past weekend Dr. Pozner and I both lectured at the 8th annual South Beach Symposium. This Miami Beach meeting, run by Dr. Mark Nestor, is always a very practical symposium with a large variety of lectures focusing on both medical and cosmetic dermatology.

Dr. Pozner ‘s lectures focused on fractional devices such as Sciton (we use Sciton Erbium lasers) and I discussed the science of mesotherapy. I talked about our research with Kythera’s deoxycholate and on newer attempts at mesotherapy for cellulite that do not require the currently used, and highly controversial, Lipostabil approach. Mesotherapy has yet to be embraced by mainstream dermatology and plastic surgery. This may change as a more serious scientific approach is given to the techniques of mesotherapy.

One of the more interesting discussions at the meeting was a look at newer approaches to using one’s own fat for filling wrinkles (and perhaps even enlarging breasts). Although this technique has been around for well over a decade, newer approaches may be simpler, less traumatic and lead to even better results. Stay tuned!

  1. When considering cosmetic surgery in miami, it is best to make ure the physician is board certified by The American Board of plastic surgery. It would also be better if the doctor was also cerified by the American board of surgery.
