On September 4, the fourth Academic Aesthetics Mastermind Group was hosted by co-owners of Trikwan Aesthetics clinic Dr Zoya Diwan and Dr Sanjay Trikha in Mayfair.
The meeting had a primary focus on rare complications and practitioners presented and discussed case studies they had managed. Dr Diwan shared a case on abscesses, aesthetic practitioner Dr Zunaid Ali discussed vascular occlusion and dentist and aesthetic practitioner Dr Sepideh Etemad-Shahidi shared her case on granulomas.
Following this, aesthetic practitioner Dr Chris Rennie critically reviewed an existing paper, titled Effectiveness of Retrobulbar Hyaluronidase Injection in an Iatrogenic Blindness Rabbit Model Using Hyaluronic Acid Filler Injection. Attendees were then asked to share their thoughts on the study, which they had been sent prior to the event.
The co-founders then proposed a series of case studies to be collated with the aim to be published on the treatment of abscesses, due to the lack of literature currently available.
Dr Diwan said, “We’ve had a really engaged group this evening and it’s fantastic to see returning and new members every month. It’s clear that there are flaws in the many current studies in this field and even the one we critically appraised today, and that is why I believe it is important for us to come together and create papers that will hopefully assist the future of aesthetic practitioners.”
Dr Diwan has also confirmed that as of the next session, held in October, the Academic Aesthetics Mastermind Group meetings will be CPD accredited.
