periorbital filler
& oculoplastic

We are proud to announce our very first UMA Academy Symposium. We've set–up a program packed with periorbital and oculoplastic demonstrations performed by a multidisciplinary team of experts.
This is your chance to gain the latest clinical and academic insights into periorbital anatomy, filler injection techniques and oculoplastic surgery. Knowledge and deep understanding of the 3-dimensional anatomy is key in preventing complications. Understanding the correct safest treatment techniques will result in lower risk of complications. The symposium is a full day event and it will take place on 22 March 2024 in the beautiful Anatomiegebouw in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

about this symposium

An international multidisciplinary team of expert faculty will present the latest academic and practical insights concerning filler injection techniques, surgical oculoplastic techniques and periorbital anatomy during live patient treatments and live demonstrations on cadaver specimens.
Real cadaver dissections and treatments can give the clinician the anatomical insights that cannot be attained by reading books or studying images or videos. Actually seeing and knowing the anatomy not only serves as the most valuable element of prevention of complications, but will be of the highest value in treatment of complications, should they occur.

  • a uniquely condensed program set–up by the best in the field
  • live patient treatments and cadaver dissections
  • the latest academic insights and new clinical techniques
  • meet your peers and share knowledge

course level: advanced

This course is intended for physicians with significant experience in aesthetic procedures, either surgical or non-surgical. If licensed in your country to independently perform these procedures, in some cases (prescribing) nurses or dentists could also apply.

Please note: in The Netherlands, nurses and dentists are not allowed to perform these procedures and will not be permitted to enter the course.

symposium program

The important anatomical structures for surgical as well as nonsurgical periorbital rejuvenation are demonstrated during cadaver dissections by our academic anatomist.. Special attention is given to peri- and intraorbital arterial anatomy, nervous anatomy as well as muscular and ligamentous anatomy.

Our expert injectors Jani van Loghem and Julieta Spada will share their latest publications and insights on periorbital filler techniques and prevention and management of complications. The latest protocols for prevention and management of filler induced blindness are presented. Special attention is given to sunken upper eyelids, tear troughs, palpebromalar grooves and other periorbital indications.
Our professor in oculoplastic and orbit surgery Peerooz Saeed will present the various details of upper and lower lid blepharoplasty and brow lifting techniques on cadaver specimens.
