Consultant ophthalmic plastic reconstructive surgeon Mrs Sabrina Shah-Desai has launched the Oculo-Facial Aesthetic Academy (OFAA), which is offering three new courses aimed at enhancing anatomical knowledge and promoting safe and evidence-based aesthetic practice amongst medical professionals.
The new courses cover dermal filler complications management and prevention, facial profile restoration and rejuvenation of the periorbital and perioral using non-surgical injectable treatments.
Mrs Shah-Desai said, “Delegates will gain clarity of the complex facial anatomy, how to optimise their outcomes based on current evidence and will learn aesthetic concepts from a national and international faculty of educators.” Joining Mrs Shah-Desai in teaching the courses will be dermatologist Dr Gabriela Casbona, oculoplastic and orbital surgeon Dr Francesco Bernadini, facial plastic ENT, head and neck surgeon Mr Frank Rosengaus, aesthetic practitioner Dr Ravi Jain, and independent nurse prescribers Jackie Partridge and Sharon Bennett.
The courses are CPD accredited and include hands on, fresh cadaver wet-lab training in a small group sizes. They will take place in different locations in the UK, including Coventry and London in October and November.
