Dr. Prendiville was the only Southwest Florida physician to speak at the educational conference which brings together nationally recognized physicians and educators in the fields of facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery dermatology and oculoplastic surgery. Vegas Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Dermatology is the largest event of its kind in North America.
Dr. Prendiville spoke on the topic of goals in male eyelid surgery.
“Although men have distinctive concerns about rejuvenating their eyelid area, they generally wish to do so in a subtle way that does not appear surgical,” he said.
Dr. Prendiville also spoke about unintended tissue death and how physicians can manage this occurrence. “Fillers are the fastest growing area of plastic surgery. Fillers can result in severe complications when left in untrained hands,” he said.
He also shared some of his clinical, surgical and marketing experience in facial plastic surgery.
