Dr. Berkowitz Joins Faculty of Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium

Aesthetx is incredibly proud to be led by two thought leaders who continue to inspire new generations of plastic surgery masters. In fact, our very own Dr. Berkowitz was recently invited to teach a new generation of rhinoplasty experts at the 34th annual Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium. Though he’s traveled the world as an educator for the latest plastic surgery techniques and devices, Dr. Berkowitz was honored to join the renowned rhinoplasty symposium for the very first time as a faculty member.

About the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium

Even in its 34th year, the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium still attracts hundreds of participants from all over the globe. With a focus on only the most advanced, proven techniques, the symposium aims to teach participants everything about rhinoplasty, from basic techniques to the most state-of-the-art improvements and refinements of traditional techniques. Many participants are post-graduate residents and practicing plastic surgeons who hope to improve their technique with the help of primary and secondary rhinoplasty masters like Dr. Berkowitz.

A Lifelong Educator

As a faculty member, Dr. Berkowitz used his years of expertise and status as an innovator to educate participants on one of the newest devices that’s changing the field of rhinoplasty: Piezo electric tools. Dr. Berkowitz was the very first faculty member to introduce the use of power tools as a superior tool for nose reshaping into the teaching course. Dr. Berkowitz showed the many benefits of using Piezo electric tools: power tools are precise enough to allow for more refined and predictable results, result in less trauma to the tissue, and cause less bruising and swelling than traditional techniques. The Aesthetx private surgery center is currently equipped with the latest Piezo electric tools.

A Master of Rhinoplasty

He’s been a huge figure in the world of rhinoplasty for some time, so it’s not surprising to see why Dr. Berkowitz was chosen to present at the Dallas Rhinoplasty symposium. Dr. Berkowitz currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Rhinoplasty Society. A consummate educator, he’s toured the world to speak about his state-of-the-art techniques and most recently taught a six-part course on the complete guide to rhinoplasty for the Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN.) He’s also authored book chapters on rhinoplasty and has had his work featured in the media and renowned publications all over the world.

In addition to his renowned work and illustrious career, Dr. Berkowitz is also a compassionate and caring doctor. For a chance to work with him and the esteemed Dr. Zeidler, contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

Dr. Zeidler Heads to Spain for Barcelona Breast Meeting 2017

As a thought-leader in the world of breast surgery, Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler has traveled the world to spread her expertise in new techniques for cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures. Just recently, Dr. Zeidler delivered a series of lectures for the most renowned physicians in her field at the 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting, a symposium on state-of-the-art revision surgery techniques, complex cases, and breast cancer treatment and reconstruction. Dr. Jaume Masia, one of the Chairmen of the symposium and colleague of Dr. Zeidler, personally tapped Dr. Zeidler to be a part of the faculty.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting

The 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting was a three-day conference for some of the most renowned minds in the field of breast surgery. This year, the event had over 400 attendees from more than 26 countries. The conference featured lectures, live surgeries, and workshops. The lectures were delivered by the conference’s distinguished faculty, which was made up of a handful elite surgeons like Dr. Zeidler. The symposium was held at the world-famous and historic Hospital de Sant Pau, which happens to be the oldest hospital in Spain.

A Master of Breast Surgery

Dr. Zeidler was able to draw upon her innovative career for her lectures; she was honored to help educate attendees on the devices and techniques that she and Dr. Berkowitz had a hand in helping develop. Hot off her appearance on The Doctors, Dr. Zeidler once again lended her expertise on one of the most advanced devices for breast reconstruction: Aeroform. In a lecture titled “My Experience in Breast Reconstruction with AirXpander,” Dr. Zeidler described the incredible benefits of the Aeroform device, which allows women to control the degree and timing of their breast expansion to prepare for breast reconstruction. Dr. Zeidler also performed a lecture about her unique techniques for fat grafting for the breast, and how advanced devices like HydraSolve and PureGraft allow for smooth, predictable, and long-lasting results.

An Experienced Lecturer

Like many of the faculty members, Dr. Zeidler discussed the innovative techniques she’s pioneered, such as her and Dr. Berkowitz’s autoimplant breast lift technique and the use of acellular dermal matrixes. Dr. Zeidler discussed the long-lasting lift capabilities of the autoimplant breast lift and how acellular dermal matrixes provide crucial support for delicate reconstruction and revision procedures. Having seen so much during her illustrious career, she also drew on her unique experiences to moderate an international panel of surgeons who discussed their most difficult cases and how they solved them.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting was truly a meeting of the masters. If you’d like to see more pictures from Dr. Zeidler’s visit to Spain, visit our Instagram page below.

Dr. Zeidler’s Guest Appearance on The Doctors National TV Show

Aesthetx is proud to announce that one of our esteemed surgeons, Dr. Zeidler, was featured in an exciting new episode of The Doctors!  You might already be a fan of the show, but for those of you who’ve only caught a promo here and there, The Doctors is an Emmy-nominated talk show hosted by four renowned physicians that explores the world of health and medicine. With help from Dr. Zeidler, the show’s latest episode featured one of Dr. Zeidler’s breast reconstruction patients’ use of AeroForm, an innovative tissue expander system. As the first surgeon to conduct the AirXpander Aeroform procedure following FDA clearance, Dr. Zeidler is able to provide some valuable insight regarding this new technique.

What Is AeroForm?

Dr. Zeidler is known for her work in breast reconstruction, but many people don’t know that Dr. Zeidler’s family is affected by the BRCA gene mutation, so she understands how difficult this experience can be. Part of the first step in breast reconstruction is tissue expansion, where women insert a placeholder implant into their breasts to create space for the impending new implant. These placeholders are called tissue expanders and have to be gradually expanded, and that requires multiple visits to the doctor’s offices where the implants are injected with saline a little at a time. A second operation is done a few months later to exchange the tissue expanders for permanent implants. With AeroForm, the unique, needle-free device created by AirXpanders, the entire expanding mechanism can be done wirelessly in the comfort of the patient’s home. With a simple push of a button, women can control how much and when the expander grows larger. By enabling women to control their expansion, AeroForm allows women to avoid inconvenient trips to the doctor’s office and needles altogether.

Dr. Zeidler, Our Resident Reconstruction Expert

As a thought leader in the world of breast surgery, Dr. Zeidler has influenced some of the most innovative devices in the industry. Dr. Zeidler herself was the very first surgeon to perform surgery with AeroForm after it was FDA-cleared; she is the surgeon that’s performed the most surgeries with this device; and was a clinical investigator for AirXpander’s trials in the U.S. She’s also known for her breakthrough techniques in the field of breast reconstruction surgery and her ability to masterfully combine cosmetic enhancement techniques with sophisticated breast reconstruction procedures.

How AeroForm Changes Lives

The Doctors is committed to educating viewers on the latest news and events in health and medicine, and Dr. Zeidler is proud that they’re spreading the word on a device that could very well change a woman’s life. In this episode, The Doctors follow the story of Adrienne, one of Dr. Zeidler’s patients and one of the very first people to use AeroForm. As someone who’s worked closely with AeroForm, Dr. Zeidler has seen stories like Adrienne’s many times. Dr. Zeidler is proud to have contributed to a device that gives the power of choice and comfort to women. A survivor’s journey is never easy, but with AeroForm, women are that much closer to restoring their femininity and sense of identity.
