  • – Announcement

    Dear Colleagues and Friends,

    After the success of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Norwegian American Aesthetic Surgery Meetings in Oslo, 2015, 2017, and 2019, the Norwegian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (NSAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are pleased to invite you to the 4th Norwegian American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting, Friday, October 29, 2021. This time, NAAM4 will be combined with the first Norway ISAPS Symposium (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, or ISAPS). Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this joint meeting will be held in hybrid format.

    We are proud to announce that we have gathered 13 distinguished colleagues for the faculty:

    William Adams, USA; Timothy Marten, USA; Nazim Cerkes, Turkey; Elisabeth Hall-Findlay, Canada; Francisco Gomez Bravo, Spain; Mark Jewell, USA; Ruth Graf, Brazil; Kent K. Higdon, USA; Amin Kalaaji, Norway; Kjersti Ausen, Norway; Gudjon Gunnarsson, Norway; Mary Jewell, USA; and Bjørn Tvedt, Norway

    Many lectures and courses will be presented at this educational meeting, starting Friday at 08:30 CEST, finishing later that day in the late afternoon.

    As tradition obliges, the program will be divided into 7 sessions:

    • Rhinoplasty
    • Breast (1), including the latest on ALCL and updates on recent innovations
    • Patient Safety and Practice Management
    • Breast (2)
    • Body Contouring and Regenerative Surgery With Fat Grafting
    • Face
    • Intimate Surgery

    The preliminary program is already published online at www.naam.no, where you can scroll down to program.

    Rather than simply presenting a limited number of topics, we will cover as many aspects of aesthetic surgery as possible within these 7 sessions. This time, we will have many topics and, from some faculty members, numerous lectures on their related topics in a compact continuous format. We believe, as does our faculty, this will enhance critical thought and stimulate discussion, allowing our colleagues to reflect on the discussions and come up with new ways of thinking.

    For special inquiries, please email oslomeeting@naam.no or go to our meeting website at www.naam.no, where information about the meeting can be found.

    Registration is open. To register online, please go to www.naam.no and scroll down to Registration.

    Congress fees: The in-person fees are low, and the virtual fees have been reduced further for all members of the IASPS, the NSAPS, And the ASAPS, as well as selected other societies. Kindly see information under “Congress fee” at the same meeting website.

    The congress will be held in hybrid format, with a virtual option. For those who prefer to travel to Oslo, the beautiful capital of Norway, with its fjords and natural surroundings, can be sunny and chilly in late October, about 16º C (60º F).

    We look forward to this exciting meeting and to seeing you in person or virtually in Oslo, Friday, October 29, 2021.

    Welcome to NAAM4 and the ISAPS Symposium.
