Attendee were treated to a wide range of high value topics in facial plastic surgery including ‘Nasal reconstruction techniques’ by Mr. Baskaran Ranganathan to ‘Cutaneous Malignancies’ by Miss Sadie Khwaja. The sessions were expertly moderated by Mr. Raj Bhalla and Prof. Anshul Sama who were able to draw out pertinent insights and stimulate active discussions with trainees. Trainees also had the opportunity to present and share their work on facial plastics projects during the free paper presentations segment. The day concluded with a mock viva session for candidates of the FRCS(ORL-HNS) exit examination. Overall, the BSFPS annual meeting continues to deliver as the pre-eminent meeting in facial plastics surgery in the UK and we look forward to seeing you in the BSFPS Annual Meeting 2023 in Manchester!
