As you all may know, I am about to take over the chairmanship of the SOFCEP and will be charged in 2017 to organize its annual conference, to be held in Marseille on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June, 2017.
My Lebanese descent, coupled with this wide opening the city of Marseille offers, moved me to make this conference a Mediterranean aesthetic event by placing it under the sign of diversity.
This conference will thus be entitled "Excellence in Diversity". It will be an opportunity to discuss the encompassing - within the exercise of our profession - of cultural, ethnic and social differences ... which make the richness of our society.
Since time immemorial, the Egyptian beauty does not have the same criteria as the Greek beauty, and the northern and southern coasts each display their own aesthetic characteristics and standards of beauty.
Do we today operate breasts or a give a shape to a silhouette differently in Spain or Italy? How to reach excellence and get the ideal result while integrating such a diversity, when we perform a rhinoplasty?
To answer the many questions we asked ourselves, I invite you in Marseille on June 1, 2 and 3, 2017 for three dense and promising days, both in terms of work* and of the friendly relations we will then have the opportunity to forge.
Come with your documents, communication materials, videos, questions and suggestions.
Looking forward to spending this exciting event with you all,
*The congress in itself is scheduled Friday 2 and Saturday 3 of June 2017. It will follow an ISAPS day, scheduled Thursday 1st of June, 2017
