World Live Surgery Workshop Operating Faculty and Cases

As of February 11, 2022

Case 1: Long Hair Harvesting and Hairline Reconstruction

In case number one, the patient’s donor will be harvested without shaving. Our faculty surgeons will demonstrate two different techniques. Dr. Otavio Boaventura from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, will show us long hair, or unshaven, FUE using the Trivellini Mamba device, and then he will stick-and-place the grafts with Lion sharp implanters. Dr. Vincenzo Gambino from Milan, Italy, will oversee the case and demonstrate the classic Strip FUT technique with microscopic dissection, and then place the grafts with forceps.

Case 2: Shaven FUE and Crown Reconstruction

In case number two, Dr. Piero Tesauro from Milan, Italy, will oversee the case. Our patient’s donor area will be fully shaved and harvested using blunt punches. Dr. Mauro Speranzini from Sao Paulo, Brazil, will use the Brazilian Beltec device, and Dr. Nilofer Farjo from Manchester, United Kingdom, will demonstrate the latest version of Dr. Devroye’s WAW device with the trumpet punch. Grafts will be placed using Rainbow blunt implanters in pre-made recipient sites. As an added bonus, Dr. Moonkyu Kim from South Korea will demonstrate his INRUT multi-graft sharp implanter.

Case 3: Shaven FUE and Hairline Reconstruction

In case number three, overseen by Dr. Marco Toscani from Rome, Italy, we will show two different principles of FUE harvesting. Dr. Tayfun Oguzoglu from Istanbul, Turkey, will use Dr. Umar’s Zeus device using a blunt flared punch and classic forceps for placing the grafts. He will also demonstrate placing using customized self-loading blunt implanters. Dr. Georgios Zontos will use the classic inner bevel sharp punch using the Ertip device, followed by stick-and-place using Ertip sharp implanters.

Hear the surgeons discuss why they prefer certain tools, compare and contrast the multiple techniques and exchange opinions of how to perform each case.

Immediately following the World Live Surgery Workshop, the S.I.Tri. Congress on May 27-29,2022, will provide inspiring lectures and roundtables covering every aspect of the field, from medical trichology through surgery to research.

Afterward, an optional Chianti Cycling Tour on May 30 – June 3, 2022, will offer an exhilarating way to explore the country with colleagues and friends.

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to gather and learn with fellow surgeons and scientists.
