Facial deformity, whether occurring as a result of trauma, oncological resection or congenital anomalies, presents unique challenges in reconstruction. Surgeons who encounter these clinical scenarios may come from a spectrum of different surgical specialties and are fully aware of the complexities faced in attempting to achieve aesthetic restoration of this region.

This one and a half day forum aims to provide brief reviews of fundamentals required in the understanding of the subject, as well as address current issues and controversies. It will be a meeting suitable for experienced surgeons as well as trainees of all levels, providing a truly unprecedented platform for sharing of clinical strategies and vibrant discussion of future directions. It promises to be a totally worthwhile educational experience.
