Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in Athens, Greece for the 2nd Mediterranean Conference of Plastic Surgery Innovations, organized by the Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery of the University of Colorado in collaboration with various societies, which will take place from August 31st to September 2nd 2024 at the Grand Resort Lagonissi Hotel in Athens Riviera.

Our first meeting was held in May 2023 in Limassol, Cyprus with great success and delegates from over 15 countries, not only from the Mediterranean but also from all over the world. It was certainly a highly educational experience with regional and international speakers that are renowned experts in the field. This was complemented by ample networking and social activities that offered the participants a taste of the culture and history of the island.

This year’s conference will cover a wide range of reconstructive and aesthetic aspects of the entire body, and will concentrate on hot innovative topics and controversial issues. A rigorous scientific program has been developed focusing on head and neck reconstruction, upper and lower extremity reconstruction, peripheral nerve reconstruction, breast reconstruction, trunk reconstruction, lymphatic reconstruction, and gender affirming surgery. In addition, this year`s program will expand on the latest techniques in aesthetic surgery of the face / nose, breast, body, and genitalia.

We are honored to have world renowned speakers joining us from all over the world to share their expertise. It is our hope that the meeting will once again bring delegates from the Mediterranean as well as the rest of the world to learn, network and enjoy the warm Athens weather and the Greek hospitality!

With warm regards,
