Intended Audience:
This course is appropriate for all practicing maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and other physicians interested in a greater understanding of advanced maxillofacial principles and techniques.

Overview:
This course is a two-day program consisting of lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions.

The purpose of this course is to offer a unique opportunity for Surgeons to learn from various masters, with the emphases on lectures that emphasize the salient points of various surgical procedures, and then allowing a ‘hands on’ experience to perform these procedures using fresh cadaver heads. This course is a natural progression for those physicians who have attended the Basic Maxillofacial Course and will enhance the participants experience with these fundamental techniques.

The course will be held at Louisiana State University, New Orleans Louisiana. Lectures and Labs will take place at the Center for Advanced Practice, 2020 Gravier Street, New Orleans, LA 70112.

Please dress casually and comfortably as your clothing will be exposed to powders and chemicals used during the laboratory sessions each day. We strongly recommend you wear scrubs throughout the program.

  • Perform an advancement genioplasty.
  • Understand the indications of correcting facial deformities with orthogathic procedures.
  • Identify the indications for performing a safe malar augmentation.
