Video reviews from the Course lecturers:
More than 1,400 people, including 550 top plastic surgeons, were offered a uniquely rich 41-hour programme covering state-of-the-art surgical and cosmetological techniques and insights. Nine surgeries performed over a total of 19 hours 30 minutes were broadcast live, along with six hours of injections.
The Course occupied all the conference spaces available at the hotel. Five conference rooms hosted live broadcasts from the operating rooms, lectures, video sessions, satellite events, and master classes built around proprietary content. The audience stayed till the end of the programme every day. Corinthia and other nearby hotels offered hospitality to plastic surgeons and contouring experts from all over Russia and from various corners of the world. The number of countries represented at the Course has increased from 25 last year to 35.
The annual Course organised by Atribeaute, now in its fourth year, has always been a three-day event for surgeons. This year, for the first time experts in medical cosmetology were offered a three-day programme as well. The Scientific Board featured Natalya Manturova, Olga Zabnenkova, Alena Saromytskaya, Ekaterina Gutop, and Denis Gruzdev. The extent of the work is impressive: six hours of injections broadcast live, 12 hours of thread implants, seven hours of Expert Club discussions, six hours of laser treatments, another six of aesthetic intimate area procedures, and two hours of botulinum toxin injections.
We have once again partnered with Skin Technology to organise a dissection course much appreciated by our audience. This time we invited two anatomists, Yves Saban and Peter Palhazi. In addition, the attendees were offered an opportunity to practice their skills in small groups on biomaterial.
Another novelty introduced in 2016 was the role of discussants. They helped the moderators keep the conversation interesting for the audience, and occasionally expressed fundamentally different opinions. A special online platform enabled the attendees to ask questions and let the moderators choose the most popular topics for discussion. Each section provided an opportunity to discuss the content. The audience was particularly interested in The Present and Future of Breast Augmentation. Optimisation of the Outcome; Aesthetic Intimate Area Procedures; Breast Surgery Complications. Revision Breast Surgery; a round table on complications in cosmetology; Lipomodelling of the Buttocks; laser treatments, and the Expert Club (periorbital area, lips, bottom third of the face, etc.).
Due to the advanced level of the Course, beginners were able to get a glimpse of the profession's potential over the three days, while their more experienced colleagues discovered new insights, compared them with conventional techniques, and studied the differences in satisfying detail. Each attendee had an opportunity to talk with the faculty, ask questions they personally found challenging, and learn tips and tricks that will certainly improve the quality of their work.
This year, more than 150 experts spoke at the conference. We invited excellent professionals who have a lot of interesting information to share and are happy to participate in an open and honest dialogue.
More than 39 companies presented the industry's latest innovations at the exhibition.
Our partners organized a total of 17 hours of satellite events that proved extremely popular among the audience. Representatives of Galderma, Ipsen, Martinex, Nike-Med, Premium Aesthetics, Allergan, Doctor Trend, Zeltiq, and Meso-Expert presented the latest trends in their work.
All of this made our high-profile conference particularly interesting and significant for beauty experts. This course, AESTHETIC SURGERY AND MEDICAL COSMETOLOGY OF THE FACE, BREAST, AND BODY 2016, has exceeded expectations and established a new standard for such events. The yearly meeting in October in St. Petersburg is transforming from a good tradition to a professional necessity.

What I have to say is that comparing the different places where I have performed such live surgeries, hospitality was second to none. World class! I have even done the same surgery at another congress, but I feel that your level of organization was even better! Thank you so much, it was a great experience.
