Dr. Cuzalina Attends the Vietnam World Congress 2012
The August 25-26 conference was titled "8th annual scientific congress ‘Ho Chi Minh Society of Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery: The Orient Meets the West in Modern Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery."
Dr. Cuzalina gave talks on "Breast Augmentation, Lift and Reductions: Managing the Challenging Cases" and "Analyzing Abdominoplasty Techniques: Risk and Treatment of DVT or Pulmonary Emboli."
We're happy to present some photos from the event as well as Dr. Cuzalina's travels through Vietnam. Captions are by Dr. C.
This was at the gala dinner following the lectures, Dr Cuong presented me with a ‘Lifetime Achievement award in the field of cosmetic surgery’ He is the Congress ‘surgical societies’ President who organized the meeting and asked me to be their featured speaker. A few years ago, Dr. Cuong came to Tulsa to visit and watch surgery at one of our courses.
This photo, taken after I received an award for speaking, is of me and Dr. Tuan A. Nguyen MD, PhD from the Department of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery at Ho Chi Minh City Medicine University. They were all very gracious hosts. Their tradition is to give the large flower arrangement and a certificate of appreciation.
Just an extra photo of me with one of the certificates and flowers given by the very hospitable surgeons there.
This is my wife, Paige, sharing a Vietnamese beer with our bicycle drivers who showed us the city of Saigon on the front of their bikes (known as a ‘Rickshaw’).
