DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/16/13 -- An internationally recognized expert and leader in the field of rhinoplasty, Dr. Jack P. Gunter has been invited to the 36th Annual Meeting of the Japan Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (JSAPS), which will be held in Tokyo on Oct 17th and 18. During the two-day conference, Dr. Gunter will serve as a special lecturer and make a presentation on the subject of revision rhinoplasty.
Revision rhinoplasty, also referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, is a procedure performed to correct problems that have developed or persisted following a patient's first nose surgery -- such as cosmetic irregularities, functional/breathing difficulties, or simple dissatisfaction with results. Dr. Gunter's presentation, titled, "Evolution of a Personal Secondary Rhinoplasty Practice" will feature a discussion of revision rhinoplasty and the improvements he's made in the results of the initial rhinoplasty, as well as newer techniques in secondary rhinoplasty procedures.
In a recent blog post on Dr. Gunter's website entitled "Dr. Gunter to Present Latest Revision Rhinoplasty Techniques in Japan," he mentions a report from the International Society of Plastic Surgeons which cites data from recent years listing Japan as the fourth highest-ranking country in the number of cosmetic surgery procedures performed annually. Ranked first was the United States, followed by Brazil and China. Japan also ranked within the top-five countries for the number of rhinoplasty procedures performed. Praising Dr. Gunter as a leading authority of rhinoplasty in the U.S., JSAPS Chairman Otake Naoyuki has stated that Dr. Gunter's work had a major impact on the concept of rhinoplasty in Japan.
For over 27 years, Dr. Gunter has lectured for both the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). He has presented on an extensive variety of rhinoplasty topics, such as challenging noses and noses with thick skin. Dr. Gunter says that sharing his expertise and experience through continuing education conferences (both nationally and internationally) is something he enjoys in order to further the advancement of nose surgery techniques and to promote the safest, most precise methods. As one of the most complex and artistically intricate plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Gunter also says that it is critical for surgeons to remain well-versed with the most recent developments in rhinoplasty.
