Welcome To IAFCS – International Academy of Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Welcome to IAFCS, a unique training academy based in India, offering skills based training in all aspects of Cosmetic Surgery & Facial Aesthetics to professionals all across the globe.

Cosmetic Surgery & cosmetic procedures are elective procedures usually undertaken by normal people, to look better. Thus, cosmetic surgery is very different from any other surgical specialty, in that precision of the order of millimetres is required to make essentially normal people look better. Therefore, the skill sets required in cosmetic surgery need to be of the highest possible order.

At this moment, training in most countries is not geared towards this challenge. The mistaken belief is that merely completing a residency program in Plastic Surgery or Dermatology gives practitioners the license to practice Cosmetic Surgery & Facial Aesthetics. Nothing could be further from the truth, since proficiency in Cosmetic Surgery needs specialised consultation, evaluation & surgical skills. Read More

Beautify with Botox (1 Day)

Botulinum toxin is one of the oldest known non-surgical facial rejuvenation tools, used by medical practitioners worldwide. Botox is known to be very effective in treating various signs of aging such as crow’s feet, forehead lines and wrinkles. Botox is derived from a bacterium Clostridium Botulinum which is found in nature in soils, lakes, forests, intestinal tracts of mammals and fish and organs of crabs and shellfish.

Naturally occurring Clostridium Botulinum is harmless in nature however when the spores transform in vegetative cells the bacterial starts producing Botulinum toxin. The neurotoxin present in Botox targets the nerves system and disrupts the nerve to muscle signalling process resulting in paralyzing of muscles.

Beautify with Fillers (1 Day)

The use of dermal fillers has bought an huge revolution in how the both patients and doctors perceive facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers have become the most frequently performed and preferred aesthetic procedure, offering patients rejuvenated and an enhanced three dimensional look, tailored to their aesthetic requirements, with minimal downtime.

More and more patients today are aware and understand that the appearance of signs of aging is related to volume loss. Because of volume loss in the facial tissues, they droop and as a result lines & folds start to appear around the cheeks, nose and mouth. Dermal fillers replace the lost volume and the result is smoothened wrinkles, plumped lips, fuller cheeks, greater bony definition and an overall youthful, rejuvenated and rested appearance. More and more patients are opting for dermal fillers nowadays.

Advanced Masterclass in Facial Contouring (2 days)

Over the last decade, there has been an unprecedented growth in the demand of elective, not surgical, aesthetic procedures for the face. Less invasive and non-surgical aesthetic procedures for facial aesthetic beautification and enhancement have evolved greatly from simple Botox and filler injections to a form of art and they are improving every day.

In the last five years, the demand for the less invasive procedures such as dermal fillers, and Botox has increased multiple folds. Facial contouring or facial sculpting using facial injectable treatments, lasers, thread lifted & energy based devices are growing in their popularity every day and now include a broad client base, including a wide age demography and increasing number of male clients.
Our 2 day advanced master class in Facial contouring gives you a broad overview of all of these procedures.

Fellowship in Facial Aesthetics (14 Days)

Fellowship in Facial Aesthetics (14 Days)

To think that Facial Aesthetics is only shooting Botox & Filler injections into the face, is both simplistic & incorrect.

The fact is that Facial Aesthetics has rapidly expanded, with newer technologies coming into the market over the past few years.
Today, we have many modalities, which can transform the face. Botox, Fillers, Lasers, Ulthera, Facial threads, Kybella and Coolsculpting are only some of modalities available to people today.

While introduction to these modalities is important, a physician super specialising in Facial Aesthetics also needs to have greater & deeper understanding of the elements of Facial Cosmetic Surgery.

It is only when you know what can be achieved through surgeries like Blepharoplasty, Ptosis, Face Lifts, Hair Transplants, Chin & Cheek Implants, Neck Lifts & Facial Liposuction, that you can give a more comprehensive treatment plan to your patients.

Knowing what non surgical treatments can deliver is important, but only in the backdrop of knowing what surgery can achieve, so that you can give the best solution to your patients in terms of risks, benefits & advantages of each procedure, thus allowing you to individualize your treatment protocol to each patients’ individual issues.
