As in the previous editions, this biennial intensive symposium will be highly practical, focusing in detail on state-of-the-art primary and secondary open rhinoplasty techniques, with due emphasis on aesthetics and function, in a personal and approachable format.
The course is aimed to all physicians performing nasal surgery, mainly plastic, ENT and maxillo-facial. It will cover in depth both the basics of the open approach for the beginner, as well as address in full detail a wide array of refinements and tricks for the proficient rhinoplasty surgeon. Lectures and videos will systematically and logically analyze specific and sequential topics, with adequate time allotted for case analysis panels and interactive discussion. Rhinoplasty truly being one of the most complex procedures, with often confusing and conflicting options, the Faculty will share with you “what really works and what doesn’t”, without hype nor spin, but just facts, which will thus produce the maximal educational benefit. Live surgery will once again be a highlight of the course due to its stimulating educational benefit and direct interaction with the surgeon, allowing a view of technical pearls and fine details of real life surgery which cannot be equally expressed by viewing custom-built videos alone.

The First and Second Bergamo Courses, held in 2008 and 2010, counted a large international participation from 27 different countries, with an overwhelmingly positive response. In line with attendee requests and feedback from the evaluation forms, the Third Course will be even more comprehensive, being lengthened to three full days in duration, and will include:
• an expanded International Faculty
• a Refresher course covering the basics of open rhinoplasty
• free optional advanced Minicourses for proficient rhinoplasty surgeons
• more topics, including the most recent finesse points of primary and secondary
   tip and dorsum management, as well as the full spectrum of septoplasty
• more videos, including 3-D videos and interactive videos commented by
   the author
• multiple panels to explore controversial issues and case analyses
• 4 live surgeries
• emphasis on personal pearls, tricks and tips
• new breakthrough procedures and emerging trends
• highlight on what really works in everyday practice
• free DVDs of live surgery and Minicourses recordings

A specific panel and video session will address the true facts of “medical rhinoplasty”, including the use of botulinum toxin to the tip and the correction of contour deformities by fillers. Finally, a “Selected Abstracts Corner” will offer participants the opportunity to present chosen communications of merit, with a prize awarded to the best presentation.

The modern Congress Center is located at walking distance from the railway station, and can be reached in a few minutes from Bergamo/Milan Orio Al Serio International airport which serves many international destinations, as well as directly from the motorway. The historical city and its equally interesting surroundings should also allow some sightseeing or leisure before or after the course. For further information about Bergamo and its scheduled events, please consult the “Key to Bergamo Tourist Magazine”, on the web site

We look forward to your participation to help us make this meeting once again a truly international event. The information that will be provided will be cutting edge. All surgeons who have a true interest in gaining excellence in open rhinoplasty, whether they have previously attended the Course or not, will draw significant tangible benefit. We have put a great effort in preparing the best possible program of the highest educational value. The intensive pace may at times test your stamina, but no shortcuts to the best quality of information!
