The 3rd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Meeting (NAAM3)

Friday and Saturday, October 25-26, 2019
Oslo, Norway

Regular registration extended to October 14th.

– Final Announcement

After the success of the 1st and 2nd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Surgery Meetings in Oslo, 2015 and 2017, the Norwegian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (NSAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Norwegian- American Aesthetic Surgery Meeting, October 25-26, 2019.

We are proud to announce that we have gathered superb faculty: more than 32 colleagues from 13 countries will be contributing—Professor Foad Nahai, Mark Jewell, Kye Higdon, Lee L. Q. Pu, Ruth Graf, Giovanni Botti, Marwan Abboud, Luiz Toledo, Norbert Pallua, Guy Magalon, Luis Macias, Nora Nugent, Birgit Stark, and Angelo Trivisonno, just to name a few—together with other Norwegian, American, Nordic, European, and international faculty. Many lectures and courses will be presented at this educational 1.5-day meeting, starting Friday at 07:40 am and finishing with lunch at 2 pm Saturday, October 26.

As tradition obliges, the program will be divided into 9 specific sessions: face; rhinoplasty, stem cells, fat grafting, and regenerative surgery; breast (2 sessions, including the latest on ALCL and updates on recent innovations/long-term results from the leading breast implant brands); quality of life and patient complaints; and patient safety, including morbidity and mortality in combined/high-risk procedures in aesthetic surgery; postbariatric (MWL patients) and body contouring surgery; practice management; and aesthetic medicine. New for this year, we have also planned “mini panels,” where speakers on a topic will have their own panel discussions, allowing more time for dialog and debate.

We will have many variated topics and many lectures per faculty member rather than 1 lengthy lecture. We believe, as do many of our faculty, that this method will enhance critical thought processes and stimulate discussion for the majority of our colleagues, allowing them to reflect and come up with new ways of thinking. Hence, we decided to cover as many aspects of aesthetic surgery as we could with the 9 sessions, rather than simply presenting a limited number of topics.

For special inquiries, please email oslomeeting@naam.no or go to our meeting website at www.naam.no. Information about the meeting hotel and other alternatives can be found on the meeting website.

Registration is now open and limited to the final stage and on-site registration. To register online, please go to www.naam.no and scroll down to Registration. Payment can be made through PayPal.

There will be a faculty/congress dinner Friday, October 25. Please consider registering for this as well. You will be among new and old friends, colleagues, and faculty members, as well as exhibitors who show great support of the plastic surgery community by attending this event and enjoying dinner with you all.

The congress will be held in Oslo, the beautiful capital of Norway, at the beautiful and classic Oslo Military Society. Oslo, with its fjords and natural surroundings, can be sunny and chilly in late October, about 16ºC (60ºF), with clear skies and a chance of rain. For hotel suggestions, starting with the faculty hotel with a reduced price for delegates. To book, please see the website and scroll down to Hotel.

With several weeks still to go until the meeting, we already have more than 120 participants from 24 countries. We look forward to this exciting meeting and to seeing you in Oslo, October 25-26, 2019.

Welcome to NAAM3.

    About Oslo Military Society

    This year the 3rd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Meeting will be arranged at Oslo Military Society. Christiania Military Society was founded March 1, 1825. The venues of Oslo Military Society are most often regarded as neo-romantic in style, but also Neo-Roman, German late-history or circular style are the terms of which it is mentioned. The most important thing is that the building is built in a unique style that differs from neighboring building and the dominant 1600s wall of Akershus Fortress, which runs alongside the buildings.

    This is a historical building which has both hosted several respectable people and provided a society with a lot of important people. The Norwegian and Swedish princes, from Crown Prince Gustaf, and the Norwegian kings from Haakon VII of, have been members of the Society. King of Norway Haakon VII became one of the most faithful members of society. His son, Crown Prince Olav was taken in as a member in 1924, and he was also among the most eager members. The following year, the 100th anniversary was celebrated with, among other things, the speech of Fridtjof Nansen, and with Haakon VII and Olav present. Shortly after the anniversary, the Society changed its name to Oslo Military Society a few months after the rest of the city had completed the change of the capitol name.

    With a short break during the war, where values were either hidden or realized, the Oslo Military Society has kept on going. Harald V became a member of the Society in 1959, and Crown Prince Haakon was taken up in 1997.

    The venues of Oslo Military Society are informal enough and yet elegant enough to fit perfectly as banqueting rooms for all occasions. Since we are centrally located in Oslo, it is easy to invite everyone to join.

    In our neo-romantic venues with plenty of space and great furniture we can arrange celebration of round numbers, confirmations, memorials, anniversaries or other gatherings as desired. We have banquet facilities in different sizes, and you can choose a venue according to your wishes and needs.

    Our menu is seasonal so we always cook with fresh produce, but we can also cook after request. The most important thing for us is that we together manage to create the kind of gathering you are looking for.

    As Oslo Military Society is centrally located in Oslo, it is easy to move the party to other premises after you have finished, and those who want to retreat will soon get home with the many public transport services nearby.

    Oslo Military Society is located in Myntgata 3, 0151 Oslo, just beside Akershus Festning.
