Welcome to the new BTS meeting

In 2002, more than 12 years ago, Akademikliniken arranged it´s first international meeting. Since then our meetings have gradually changed from being a pure breast implant meeting to more of a general aesthetic plastic surgery meeting covering varying topic such as facial rejuvenation surgery, rhinoplasties and body contouring surgery. In the last couple of years non-surgical procedures also became an integrated part of our initially pure surgical meeting. The goal of a constant development of an innovative program, covering the latest developments and evolutions in the field of aesthetic medicine has been reached. Each consecutive year the number of participants has increased. To be able to accommodate the growing number of participants we changed venue from the legendary Grand Hotel to the new Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre. We are proud that our meeting now frequently is refereed to as a top quality scientific meeting and that the response from previous years meeting participants has been overwhelmingly positive. We intend to pursue and intensify our efforts to develop the scientific quality of this meeting, inviting only the leading physicians in the area of aesthetic medicine.

Charles Darwin stated: It is not the strongest of species, nor the most intelligent that survives, it is the ones who change.

We also realize that changes are necessary for success. Even if our previous surgically orientated meetings have been extremely well received, with many remarks of the extraordinary high scientific level we are aware of the quickly changing environment in aesthetic medicine. Since the late 1990’s to today, the number of plastic surgical procedures have doubled and non-surgical procedures have seen a tenfold increase. Today many different aesthetic physicians practice non-surgical procedures but also plastic surgeons have to be involved in non-surgical procedures to be successful. Thus the ”new” expanded BTS meeting is launched for 2015.

The new BTS meeting includes parallel sessions during the first two days of the meeting that will be led by a well-respected international faculty – In one hall surgical, in the other non- surgical procedures. On the third day of the meeting the sessions will be united into a combined day with debates on controversies, pros and cons and indications for when and how to select between surgical and non surgical procedures. This third day will also include an interactive industry tribune and case debates on interaction and selection between surgery and non-surgical procedures. On each day of the meeting a number of intense and in depth workshops on various topics will be offered

Finally we hope to offer you Stockholm ́s beauty at its best season with many well-appreciated social activities.

Welcome
