Event Details

Anatomy For Injectors 2024

Date: Thursday 13 June 2024

Location: Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Medical Engineering Research Facility (MERF)

The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) invites you to the 2024 Anatomy For Injectors (AFI) Workshop, at Queensland University of Technology, Thursday 13 June 2024.

AFI’s experienced Faculty will cover both basic and advanced techniques through a combination of fresh cadaver dissections as well as live, hands-on demonstrations. This allows for in-depth, three-dimensional visualization and learning of facial anatomy, fascial relationships and its applications. Our goal is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve individual patient results with the understanding of the facial layers when using fillers and toxins.

The 2024 AFI will also incorporate the use of ultrasound to allow for correlation between live anatomy and the dissection lab, offering an even more immersive, multi-dimensional learning experience.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to the 2024 AFI.

With our warmest regards,

Dr Tim Papadopoulos
