Surgeons from around the country gathered early this month in Dallas, Texas to discuss the latest and greatest in cosmetic surgery. The 2018 Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting was jam packed with forums spanning the cosmetic surgery realm to engage and inform.
The event’s agenda included panels like “A Permanent Cure for Cellulite?” and “Why Facelifts Are Better Than Fillers” to open dialogue between medical professionals. The goal of the two-day meeting was to teach physicians how to perform surgeries more safely and effectively, while learning about the newest innovation in the field. Among the topics on the table was Brazilian Butt Lift Safety, an effort spearheaded by Dallas based surgeon, Dr. Sameer Jejurikar.
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar
Dr. Jejurikar has become a household name in the cosmetic surgery world, especially around Dallas where he has his own practice at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. He is board certified and specializes in cosmetic surgery and a wide variety of operations, including body, breast, and butt lift procedures. Jejurikar was named one of the honored faculty of this year’s Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting along with other esteemed cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, urogynecologists, and medical aestheticians.
Jejurikar was able to share his own passion for safety during his presentation at the event on March 1. He is a vocal advocate for safety through his own practice and membership in the International Multisociety Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force. The task force is comprised of board certified plastic surgeons collaborating with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and the International Federation for Adipose Therapeutics and Science. The group aims to increase education about fat grafting procedures like the Brazilian Butt Lift through hands-on training and workshops.
Jejurikar has spoken at numerous national and international meetings with the group and independently about how to protect against dangerous complications during surgery. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a grafting procedure, which entails moving fat from one part of the body to another. In the process, patients can experience embolisms, which happens when fat tissue gets caught in a blood vessel. Embolisms can be fatal, making safety an essential part of Jejurikar’s work. His presentations aim at informing other medical professionals and patients about the risks and benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
Jejurikar consistently contributes his talents to educational forums, but this month’s meeting was especially significant since it was held in Dallas, where Jejurikar is based. He’s made a name for himself in the area for doggedness and commitment to safety in the cosmetic surgery industry.
This attention to care has been consistently recognized by Jejurikar’s patients throughout his career. He’s received the Patients’ Choice Compassionate Doctor Certificate. He has worked extensively in Texas as a surgeon at Baylor Medical Center, Dallas Day Surgery Center, Forrest Park Medical Center and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. In his private practice, he also performs non-invasive, pediatric plastic surgery, breast reconstruction and complex wound reconstruction. Through his efforts beyond his everyday work, Jejurkar pushes the industry to find the safest and most effective surgical methods.
The Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting included the latest innovations in cosmetic procedures for the face, breast and body taught by experts like Dr. Jejurikar and other honored guests. Presentations included a fresh cadaver lab that allowed attendees to not only learn about new techniques, but see how they’re implemented. Doctors were able to perform each step of a cosmetic practice guided by specialized faculty for that procedure.
A Productive Conference
The meeting focused on topics including laser innovations, IPL, vaginal rejuvenation, non invasive fat removal, skin tightening, dermal fillers, advances in skin care, ethical social marketing and patient safety.

The second part of the Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting included experts in rhinoplasty surgery to discuss issues, revisions, and innovations in surgery.

The program also addressed rhinoplasty deformities and how to remedy them.
