Faculty

2019 Invited Speakers

Cosmetic Surgery Forum attendees are active participants in the symposium and we see everyone as an informal teacher. CSF is also very pleased to have the support and contributions of an outstanding, international, designated faculty.

Our sessions are presented as panels and CSF experts share their experience, recommendations and very practical advice in an honest and open discussion format. They will lay the groundwork for rigorous discussion by bringing insights into cutting-edge research and the latest innovations in patient care. At CSF you are encouraged to be an active participant and our Faculty expects, rather than tolerates, engaging discussion!
