The Coupure Seminars have organized the IVth edition of the CATFAS meeting, "Controversies, Art and Technology in Facial Aesthetic Surgery"  past June 7-9th. We could welcome nearly

250 participants this year, who traveled to Gent from 47 countries.



Several delegates participated to CATFAS for the 2nd or 3rd time, and we were proud to hear that according to many CATFAS IV was the best edition so far. The teaching provided by the international faculty was of exceptional quality and  the open spirit of the faculty has been appreciated by all.


Everyone has gone home with many ideas and new concepts, so our goal has been reached.

Everyone agrees that the Live Surgery Broadcasting in 3D delivers a tremendous amount of extra information when compared to traditional 2D imaging, and we intend to continue offering this technology to our guests in the future.



The Course Dinner was held in the spectacular Ballroom of the Gent Opera house, and the guests were marveled by the opera singers bringing popular arias in between the meals.

The three main reasons why people come to CATFAS are the leading faculty members teaching in a very sincere way with open discussions, the exceptional transmission of live surgery operations and the warm and convivial atmosphere in our venue in the Handelsbeurs, Gent and during the social events.
