Prosthetic Breast
Reconstruction Masterclass

The masterclass

How to improve your results of prosthetic breast reconstruction?  

When to perform a prepectoral reconstruction?

What are the indications of biological ADMs or synthetic meshes?

How to use implants in case of adjuvant radiotherapy?

Don’t miss the 3rd edition of the Masterclass dedicated to implant-based breast reconstruction on February 7-8, 2019 in Paris!

The objective of this 2-days masterclass is to propose to surgeons to improve their skills in immediate and delayed breast reconstruction using implants or expanders. Our faculty will share with you all their tips and tricks to optimize the results in implant-based breast reconstruction.

The sessions will focus on techniques of nipple-sparing and skin-sparing mastectomies, direct-to-implant reconstruction, biological ADM and synthetic meshes, prepectoral reconstruction and how to achieve good results in delayed breast reconstruction.

The different topics of this course will be illustrated with many commented videos and practical clinical cases.

Day 1 – Indications and techniques of immediate and delayed prosthetic breast reconstruction
Day 2 – Refinements, management of the complications and clinical cases

Priority will be given to interactivity and sharing of experience, with a limited number of participants.

The masterclass will be filmed and the attendees will be able to watch the videos of the Masterclass on-demand.
