Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

it is a privilege and an honor to invite you now to the 2nd International Video Symposium (IVS) on Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery to Berlin, which will again be hosted by the German-Turkish Plastic
Surgery Association (GTPSA).

As in 2014 the convention will be held in conjunction with the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) and under the patronage of the German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (DGPRÄC) and the Association of German Aesthetic-Plastic Surgeons (VDÄPC).

The concept of inviting leading experts as well as those on the way to excellence has proven to be successful. Especially as it was shown, that the didactic, scientific and stimulating values of video presentations and - discussions are yet to be surpassed. These videos will place the audience in the operating room. With this concept we will again focus on interactive interchange between faculty, hosts and audience. The programme will again be designed to stimulate debates on choices, explore controversies and challenge established and new techniques. Videos do not allow to conceal tricks and make every maneuver apparent. This year we will emphasize to also show late results of the procedures presented wherever possible. The video presentations deliver the education needed to ensure that we stay at the top of our craft, improve patient safety, and enhance our practices and yield reliable results. The scientific committee plans a comprehensive schedule to provide you with an overview of the latest advancements, breakthroughs and novelties in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery. During the course national and world renowned experts will share their experience with you and us.

We have assembled a superb faculty from all over the world. Our sponsors have come on board with a highly professional exhibition of valuable companies. The scientific programme will focus on breast, face, body and minimal and non-invasive treatments.

Apart from the scientific programme, you will have time and leisure to enjoy the vitality of Berlin and its cultural scenes, oblivious to winter chills . It offers arts and culture at its finest, excellent restaurants, superior and entertaining theatre, exquisite shopping facilities, exciting night life and landmarks of contemporary history.

We are looking forward to meet you in Berlin, and be part and take part in the most advanced techniques and presentations.

Welcome to Berlin in November 2015
