FOC U029 - Building Beauty: Understanding Facial Proportions, Phi, & Use of Volumizing Soft Tissue Fillers

Open admission to eligible categories, no tuition or ticket


Date: Saturday, March 22

CME Credits: 1.50

Location: Mile High Ballroom 3A

Time: 7:15 AM - 8:45 AM

Director: Timothy C. Flynn, MD, FAAD

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Outline aspects of beauty with regard to the face
  • Design aesthetic improvements to bring a face more in line with beauty ideals
  • Measure phi ratios on the face and formulate proper size ratios

Every day in the practice of aesthetic dermatology, we are asked to improve our patient's beauty. By understanding certain irreducible beauty elements, we can properly design a treatment protocol. Facial elements exist in relationship and proportion to one another, and most can be related to the concept of "phi." Participants will be able to understand facial proportions, phi, and the use of soft tissue fillers to increase attractiveness. Direct patient care suggestions will be shared and the scientific rationale for these suggestions highlighted.
