On July 1, the third Academic Aesthetics Mastermind Group (AAMG) meeting was hosted by co-owners of Trikwan Aesthetics clinic Dr Zoya Diwan and Dr Sanjay Trikha in London.
The session was introduced by AAMG vice chair, Dr Trikha who outlined the schedule for the evening and welcomed new members to the group. The first lecture, presented by Dr Diwan, was focused on anatomy and more specifically the jawline. She then presented a case study for discussion before moving onto a jawline filler paper review presented by one of the AAMG members, aesthetic practitioner Dr Chris Rennie.
Following two successful events, Dr Diwan was also able to share data gathered from the two previous proposed studies (on chin augmentation and tear trough fillers), with the aim to publish this in a peer-reviewed journal later this year.
Dentist and aesthetic practitioner Dr Sepideh Etemad-Shahidi commented, “I have attended all three events so far and they have been excellent! It’s amazing having doctors, dentists, GPs, plastic surgeons and other disciplines all coming together to discuss particular cases. I have personally presented the critical appraisal on tear troughs and chin filler articles and found it a great experience."
Dr Trikha added, “Two of our members have recently been featured in the Aesthetics journal, discussing periocular anatomy and vascular occlusions. This is certainly a platform for growth and allows practitioners to share experience and help expand and improve the entire industry, through evidence-based research. I am sure this will continue to grow and help shape future best practice.”
