At The VEI Aesthetics Center, we believe it is our responsibility to stay up to date on the latest developments in cutting edge oculoplastic technology. Recently, Drs. Bearden and Langelier made their way out to San Francisco to participate in the annual American Society Of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) symposium. This year was the 50th anniversary of ASOPRS being founded.
The ASOPRS conference allows surgeons around the world to share their knowledge and techniques. Dr. Langelier and Dr. Bearden actively participated by learning about Teprotumumab for Graves’ disease, using fibrin glue to reduce bruising after blepharoplasty, using transexamic acid to reduce surgical bleeding complications, and heard about a study showing no increased risk of bleeding with the use of Toradol for pain control during lacrimal and orbital surgery.
Our doctors also wished a warm send off for the retiring Dr. Richard Anderson. Dr. Richard Anderson is a leading member of ASOPRS and a dear mentor to our doctors.
