Dr. Franklyn Elliott has returned to Georgia after attending a short, but eventful, Breast Surgery Symposium in Rome, Italy last week. During this three day conference, Dr. Elliott and plastic surgeons from around the world met and discussed plastic and reconstructive breast surgery. Dr. Elliott enjoys these symposiums because they give him the chance to teach fellow colleagues new techniques while hearing ideas from other experts in the field as well.
He had the opportunity participate in a roundtable discussion about complications in mammary reconstructive surgery, lead a session for experts in the field on the many different approaches for breast reconstruction surgery, and present a short video explaining nipple areola complex reconstruction.
Dr. Elliott’s “Masterclass” discussed breast reconstruction after minimal incision mastectomy, the oncoplastic approach to Breast Conserving Therapy, subcutaneous mastectomy, and symmetrization mammoplasties.
Dr. Elliott was able to meet many new people and enjoyed teaching and learning new things with other surgeons. Although his week was action packed he was able to take some time to sightsee with his daughter.
