Foundation for Multispecialty Aesthetic Meetings

The original multi specialty aesthetic scientific meeting was held in the summer of 1985 in beautiful Newport Beach, CA.

The philosophy has always been “Leave your political hat at the door, come in with an open mind, and share ideas with colleagues from different disciplines. You will leave enriched personally and especially for your patients!”

This tradition continues in July 2022. All aspects in Aesthetic Medicine will be discussed including surgical and non surgical modalities from head to toe, as well as all aspects of practice management.

The meeting will feature TOP PRODUCERS in every field from this and other countries. All practitioners, staff, practice managers are welcome and encouraged to share the science and camaraderie in a great venue.

Founders

MD, COURSE DIRECTOR

Lane F. Smith, M.D.

F.A.A.C.S., F.A.O.H.N.S., F.A.B.F.P.R.S.

Dr. Lane Smith completed a fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery at Stanford University and his Plastic Surgery Training at the Mayo Clinic. Over the past 20 years he has built one of the largest and most successful plastic surgery practices in North America and performs over 1350 cosmetic cases a year. Because of his prolific surgical experience, Dr. Brennan asked Dr. Smith to assist with his multispecialty meeting. Dr. Smith felt that most of the current meetings featured the same topics by the same set of speakers that show up in multiple meetings, multiple times a year. Sometimes there was the impression that these speakers spent more time on the lecture circuit than in the operating room. Dr. Smith felt it was important to get some very experienced speakers, but also seek to include new speakers who are among the truly busy and successful surgeon who could also bring new ideas to the meetings.
