Ten years ago, he and his colleague, Renato Saltz, M.D. organized an international aesthetic plastic surgery meeting that alternates between the US and Brazil. This successful meeting is very well attended by plastic surgeons from the US, Europe, and Brazil. There is an emphasis on state of the art aesthetic plastic surgery, non-invasive treatments, and practice management. Dr. Jewell presented a scientific paper on strategies to prevent biofilm contamination around breast implants.
The vision to organize an international meeting has been very successful, according to Dr. Jewell. It brings people together in a collegial learning environment and promotes advances in the art and science of aesthetic plastic surgery. The meeting’s proceeds benefit breast cancer survivors through Dr. Saltz’s Image Reborn Foundation.
