Dear Friends and Colleagues


It is a great honour for me to personally invite you again to the 9th International Breast Symposium Düsseldorf (IBSD) at the InterContinental Hotel situated at the Königsallee. The meeting will be held as a hybrid meeting due to the ongoing situation. Again, we have been able to recruit national and international experts with a great experience in all areas of aesthetic as well as reconstructive breast surgery.


After last year‘s great response and success, we will enlarge the spectrum of the BREAST & BODY live surgery day. This year there will be 14 surgeries over two days. In our breast augmentation challenge, the surgeons will compete against each other in different rooms but with the same surgery. Same task - different possibilities! The surgeries will be performed with outstanding, well-known Surgeons.


Further, the aim of our 9th Symposium is to have lively scientific controversial discussions together with the participants and the faculty. Again, we will focus on pro- and contra sessions to take the great opportunity to strengthen the multidisciplinary approach between the colleagues to create a platform for an open discussion from different perspectives.


The program is focused to surgical indications and selection of appropriate techniques for breast surgery:

  • Reconstructive breast surgery
  • Aesthetic breast surgery
  • ALCL & the next round?
  • Breast Implant Illness - BII
  • Plastic surgery & social media
  • ADM & Meshes in IBR
  • Best case - best save session


Without the time and support from the outstanding faculty and the audience, we would not have been able to accomplish this fantastic program.


I am looking forward to welcome you in Düsseldorf.
