25th Stuttgart Advanced Course for Functional & Aesthetic Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Cadaver Course & 2nd Stuttgart Symposium on Nose Reconstruction









25th Stuttgart Advanced Course for Functional & Aesthetic Rhinoplasty

It is quite rare that a rhinoplasty course is guided by one single surgeon for a period of 25 years – but exactly this happened here in Stuttgart at the Marienhospital.


In the beginning, the course language was German, and the difficulties of seeing intraoperative details using a closed approach technique were overcome by endonasal video transmission. This was a new teaching tool and made the course well-known internationally. Later I changed the format, the course language became English and I modified the technique from closed to open approach – not for better demonstration but because I got convinced by Gilbert Aiach that the open approach is much better in different aspects. Continuously we changed and improved our techniques and proved that by our regular demonstration of last year’s cases.

In contrast to other courses we do not invite a large guest faculty, because different approaches may confuse the participants.

We believe that our own surgical philosophy shown by two different surgeons will provide the most benefit for all attendants.

Therefore we prefer to discuss our concept with selected surgeons of international reputation. Our main focus has always been the surgical demonstration and usually we perform about 10 live surgeries.


In addition, we emphasize the importance of a detailed preoperative analysis as a prerequisite for selecting an adequate technique and achieving a good result. 50% of our patients come for revision surgery after failed previous procedures and also these challenging cases are demonstrated during each course. Therefore, this anniversary course will be interesting for all colleagues who perform rhinoplasties and want to update their knowledge in this challenging field.


25 years is a long time and I will hand over the course after this anniversary event to my successor as head of the clinic, Dr. Sebastian Haack, who has been working with me for more than 10 years. I invite you to come to Stuttgart from 26th to 28th of April 2017. Immediately after on 29th of April my partner for many years, Dr. Helmut Fischer and Dr. Sebastian Haack my successor will organize an outstanding course on nasal reconstruction with our special guest Fred Menick.


I am looking forward to welcoming you and I am convinced you will not regret participating in the 25th Stuttgart Advanced Rhinoplasty Course.


Best regards

Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. W. Gubisch

2nd Stuttgart Symposium on Nose Reconstruction

Dear Collegues,


Our first symposium on nose reconstruction in March 2015 was a very successful, instructive, and encouraging event and we were immediately asked for a continuation. We decided to combine a second symposium with the 25th Stuttgart Advanced Course for Functional & Aesthetic Rhinoplasty in 2017, definitely the last one under the direction of  Prof. Wolfgang Gubisch, the senior director of our department of Facial Plastic Surgery at Marienhospital Stuttgart.


Nose reconstruction is our most challenging field of Facial Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. The development of techniques is permanently going on. Thus updating on proofed procedures is one of our objectives for a new symposium.

The main topics will be the concepts concerning partial and total three layer defects of the nose, which means reconstruction of lining, framework and cover. Again we also want to give the participants the chance to present cases and discuss solutions altogether. The way for submission you will soon find on the website.


We are happy to announce Frederick Menick from Tucson, Arizona and his outstanding teaching in our faculty again. His major contributions always inspired us to solve difficult surgical problems and pass current limitations. His new book on nasal reconstruction will be available at the symposium.

Joachim Quetz from Kiel, Germany, is also highly specialised in complex nose reconstruction and will present his preferred techniques – also available in his many publications.

This time we also are proud to announce Jong-Woo Choi from Korea, otherwise very busy in East Asian meetings. He last but not least presented great results of reconstruction in vascular malformations of the nose and beyond.

Enrico Robotti from Bergamo, Italy, faculty member of the rhinoplasty anniversary course and the nose reconstruction symposium will present his most interesting concept of downgrading a nasal defect by reduction rhinoplasty to facilitate nasal reconstruction in a one-stage procedure.


Welcome again to Stuttgart, no matter if you just want to take part in the symposium on nose reconstruction or also take the chance to learn more about rhinoplasty in the preceding live surgery course. One field inspires the other and we look forward to share that with you.
