Consultant ophthalmic plastic reconstructive surgeon Mrs Sabrina Shah-Desai will hold a training course on managing dermal filler complications on March 4 in London.
The new course, Anatomical Basis of Prevention and Management of Dermal Filler Complications, will be a hands-on fresh cadaver wet-lab with the aim of promoting safe aesthetic practice amongst medical professionals.
The wet-lab will cover basic, intermediate and advanced safe reproducible filler injection techniques for the most clinically relevant facial areas, using different types of fillers. It will also include a practical session on injecting hyaluronidase, and delegates will be provided with an information handout detailing recommended doses/dilutions and how to perform retrobulbar hyaluronidase injection for blindness.
The course will also update delegates on current expert protocols for the management of vascular complications. Led by Mrs Shah-Desai, the course faculty will also include plastic reconstructive surgeon Dr Benoit Hendrickx and aesthetic nurse prescriber Jackie Partridge.
The full-day course will take place at King's College London and the fee will include lunch, all refreshments, teaching materials that include hyaluronidase and fillers and a certificate of attendance.
