Three live surgeries were carried out in front of more than 110 doctors at the second edition of the Marbella International Plastic Surgery Summer School (MIPSS) in June.
The medical meeting, organised by Ocean Clinic Marbella, aims to share learnings among peers from around the globe. Live demonstrations given this year included a midface lift with blepharoplasty (eye bag surgery), transaxillary breast augmentation (implants inserted via armpit incision) and liposculpture with intraoperative dermal tightening.
The surgeries took place in Ocean Clinic’s state-of-the-art operating theatre in Marbella and were broadcasted live into the auditorium at H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel.
Ocean Clinic’s Dr Sonja Kästner worked with Dr Christian Grüber of Germany on the liposculpture procedure, which utilised the BodyTite system. BodyTite is powered by RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis).
The idea behind RFAL is that it is superior at reaching deep fat while remaining minimally invasive. At the same time, it provides contraction of the dermis and tissue, ensuring patients aren’t left with loose skin.
