It was a fulfilling 3 days for me as although there were not many new things, it was nice revision and recapping time. The best part of all of course was being able to personally meet Dr Pierre Fournier - the "inventor" of liposuciton under tumescent anesthesia. If not for him, liposucton would n't be what it is today. At 84years old, his mind was still sharp and his sense of humor remarkable! He made his wife take all the pictures with us and informed her that he was going to take home 2 "young" Malaysian women with back to France with him....in the form of photos.

|With world renowned Dr Pierre Fournierre - what an honour.|
Also met Dr Ridaelli, another old timer in the Aesthetic Medicine fraternity. Of course, bought his book "Facial Aging" , a comprehensive account on the changes that occur with aging. He gladly signed it and after we a wonderful chat over tea. He invited me to visit his clinic in Milan, Italy which I am going to make a point to do next time I am there. Wonderful 'gurus' and wonderful people who teach and disseminate their knowledge freely and generously.
