I can't tell how much I enjoyed participating in this wonderful conference.
I have not stopped telling people about how nice St Petersburg was and how incredible we were treated.
I know that I may have been the one voice speaking about different techniques but I think that is important that participants see different options. I think that the long term results are evidence that there are various options to achieve aesthetic and natural long lasting outcomes.
Thank you for inviting me. I had a great time!

This meeting was one of a greatest meeting ever I attended.
I also have annual blepharoplasty meeting in Korea, but meeting in Saint-Petersburg had more live surgery more faculty and presentation.
The attendee got more deep and precise knowledge about eyelid and face.
It look like world total blepharoplasty and facelift meeting.
Combination between surgery and noninvasive cosmetic rejuvenation is also very good.
I would like to give my thanks with all my mind.
I really would like to attend and visit again if you will organize the Course with the same topic in 2020.

I will make every effort to spend more time to see your wonderful city.

Such an impressive meeting last week in St. Petersburg! I have been to many meetings in the US and Europe, and even organized several myself with live surgery, and I can assure that none have been so comprehensive, intense and worthwhile as the one you have put together. You have made St. Petersburg the Capital of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery education worldwide, and that is very impressive.
