Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Discussed During the Emirates Plastic Surgery Congress 25 May 2021
Under the Patronage of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Medical Sciences, the 6th edition of the Emirates Plastic Surgery Congress (EPSC), the leading specialized event in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery is set to take place from the 27th-29th of May 2021, at the Intercontinental Festival City Dubai, UAE.
The 3-day premier specialized hybrid event, running under the theme ‘Science and Art in the field of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery’, aims to shed new light on the latest advances, trends, and key breakthroughs in this fast-evolving field, in the presence of the field’s most distinguished names. 
This year, the Emirates Plastic Surgery Congress presents a rich comprehensive agenda featuring more than 80 scientific lectures on key trending topics such as face and neck, body contouring, breast surgery, general reconstructive, reconstructive & hand surgery, head and neck reconstructive surgery, live surgery, medicolegal and practice management, and much more, presented by over 75 of the most prominent names in the field of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery from 23 countries. The rich lectures will be attended by 400 live attendees and 125 virtual attendees, who will get a chance to earn 23.25 Continuing Professional Development points and endorsements accredited by Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), while also gaining knowledge, upgrading their skills, and enhancing their clinical expertise in the various fields of plastic surgery. 
Running parallel to the conference, the EPSC exhibition will witness the participation of more than 25 top brands and companies representing the plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery departments, where they will showcase their latest products, services and medical technologies that are revolutionizing the industry. In addition, the exhibitors from various countries will also get an opportunity to understand the local market, in order to expand their presence in the regional market, and connect with like-minded professionals.
Commenting on the Hybrid format of EPSC 2021, Dr. Sanjay Parashar, Scientific Chairman of EPSS said: “The industry is evolving every day as surgeons and practitioners around the world go about their jobs. Surgeons around the world are identifying new methods and techniques to perform surgeries and procedures. This is the key reason for us to hold EPSC, for an Intellectual exchange.”
He added: “I love meeting people in person, and the energy we exchange in person is unique, but I think Hybrid events are the way forward, whether with during the pandemic or after it, as it has opened up the scope and reach of the conference. We are now able to drive participation from doctors who were unable to travel and have made it economical and accessible for many doctors, through saving the cost of travel and lodging. Our job is to share ideas and expertise and educate, and we want to do it for every single doctor who is interested, and adding a digital element to EPSC is helping us with that.”
From his side, Dr. Vakis Kontoes, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeon, Chairman of ISAPS Educational Council, said: “Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is a continuously developing specialty with a main mission to maintain the high standards results and the safety of our patients. In my opinion, despite the new technological developments in our field, the most important breakthrough is the tireless efforts to ensure the safety of our procedures and maintaining very high standards, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected all sectors of our practice.”
He added: “Hybrid meetings give the opportunity to colleagues around the world, who cannot travel due to the existing restrictions of the pandemic, to maintain and enrich their knowledge by attending scientific meetings virtually. There is no doubt that physical presence is a more direct method of sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas and opinions, but given the current situation, hybrid meetings minimize the possibility of losing contact with the progress in our specialty which could easily happen if virtual attendance was not be available.”
The 6th edition of EPSC has received the generous support of a few of the most prominent societies and associations in the field, such as the Arab Association of Surgical and Medical Aesthetics, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Bahrain Association of Plastic Surgery, Emirates Medical Association, Iranian Society of Plastic Surgeons, Iraqi Society of Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Omani Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeons, Plastic Surgery Care Society, Rhinoplasty Society of Asia, and Israeli Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery.
