Dear Colleagues:

After the great success of last years‘ symposium, I would like to personally invite you again to join me and the faculty to the 4th International Breast Symposium Düsseldorf (IBSD) being held in April 22 - 23, 2016.


Again, we have been able to recruit renowned national and international plastic surgeons and senologists as faculty members, to initiate discussions of current developments in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. We would like to take the greast opportunity to strengthen the multidisciplinary approach between the colleagues to create a platform for an open discussion from different perspectives on various aspects regarding breast surgery from a clinical as well as a scientific point of view.


Our Symposium will include debates, lectures and round tables about the following Key Topics:

  • Pro and contra debates, round tables and hot seat sessions of key opinion leaders
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery – perspectives in the future
  • Different aspects in augmentation
  • Different countries – different practice in surgery?
  • Lipofilling - what is new?
  • Immediate or delayed reconstruction?
  • Reduction and mastopexy - different cases
  • Perforator flaps vs. implants, matrixes and lipofilling
  • Next generation screening!
  • Radiotherapy and reconstruction
  • Lymphedema treatment – from different points of view
  • Difficult refinements in augmentation
  • The vascular approach session – mastectomies from different perspectives
  • Complications in autologous reconstruction
  • Best case - best save session with live voting of the audience



Our Goal is to have a lively and informative symposium. The symposium venue, situated on the famous Königsallee, provides again a very special atmosphere. I would also like to express my gratitude to the members of the faculty. Without their time and support,


I look forward to welcoming you in Düsseldorf.


Kind Regards
