/PRNewswire/ -- Four surgeons on the medical staff of
Texas Institute for Surgery
will share their expertise with plastic surgeons at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's (ASAPS) 46
Annual Meeting this month.
Surgical leaders Drs.
C. Spencer Cochran
will present to the world's foremost aesthetic surgeons across
in New York City. The meeting highlights the latest news, technologies, and trends in cosmetic surgery of the face and the entire body.
Nearly 2,000 U.S. and international surgeons will gather for the four-day symposium at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, according to meeting organizers. The forum allows surgeons the chance to connect, improve patient safety, and discuss the practices that define their specialties.
-based Texas Institute for Surgery (TIS) is home to a number of surgeons with distinguished reputations, according to president
, FACHE. "The fact that both patients and peers recognize the expertise of our surgeons keeps us mindful of exceeding expectations in surgery, and via contributions to a complex field."
Dr. Cochran will present a two-hour course, "Improving Results in Rhinoplasty." The course is designed to assess how to decrease revisionary rhinoplasty rates, and to develop a comprehensive plan to address aesthetic and functional nasal deformities.
"Rhinoplasty intrigues me because of its inherent degree of difficulty," Dr. Cochran said. "To be extraordinary, you must develop a keen aesthetic eye, a deep understanding of anatomy, and incredible technical proficiency. You must also commit to it as a specialty because rhinoplasty is a procedure that is challenging to do well if you are not doing it all the time."
