The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons will return to sunny Honolulu at the Hawaiian Convention Center this Sept. 8-13.

In conjunction with the Japanese Society and Korean Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the AAOMS 96th Annual Meeting will feature a variety of educational and corporate offerings sure to meet every clinician’s needs. Among the events planned for the annual meeting are:

  • Two full-day clinical module programs
  • Symposia
  • Keynote lecture
  • Oral abstract and poster sessions
  • Open forums
  • CIG programs
  • Exhibition

One highlight this year will be a featured session focusing on “Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Facial Surgery.”

Brought to you by the CIG on Cosmetics, this course will focus on popular, minimally invasive, office-based facial rejuvenation procedures that can be incorporated into OMS practice. Each treatment addressed will include discussion of clinical indicators, procedural techniques, postoperative considerations, and adverse outcomes and sequelae. Experts in facial and dermatologic cosmetic surgery will present a variety of options for addressing problems with aging skin, facial volume and contour abnormalities. The session will also address the clinical debate on controversial treatment options.

Additionally, this year’s keynote address will feature Beck Weathers, MD, a survivor of the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy. The incredible story of Beck Weathers' survival has all the elements of a great adventure: heroism; bravery; a successful human struggle against the forces of nature; the surmounting of great physical and psychological challenges; and a triumph of the human spirit. He has come back from his ordeal to speak about his experience and to enlighten us with the invaluable lessons he learned, according to AAOMS.
