In 2002 Akademikliniken had its first international symposium, this was a relatively small meeting focusing on breast implant surgery. Thanks to very good response and demand for more meetings we have been stimulated to continue with these symposiums, which now have grown to become the largest aesthetic medicine meeting in Scandinavia.
Even if aesthetic breast surgery still is a central part of the meeting we now also focus on many other parts of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. In a 14-year period the number of participants have increased from 150 to 986 from more than 50 countries. This in combination with excellent support from the industry makes it possible to invite and host a well-known and large faculty of experts, obviously a prerequisite for a high scientific standard and success of the meeting.
