By Dennis Hurwitz on January 13, 2020

Pioneering, world renowned innovative Pittsburgh plastic surgeon and Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, Dennis J Hurwitz, MD is presenting his evolution of total body lift surgery, featuring the oblique flankplasty at the January 15, 2020 Department of plastic surgery grand rounds at 7:00 to 9 AM in the medical school 11 floor Scaife Hall on Terrace Street.  He will introduce visiting plastic surgeon scholar from Cairo Egypt, Dr. Ahmed Taha, who will then speak on the practice of plastic surgery in Egypt as well as research on improving safety in body contouring surgery.  Dr. Taha won a USAID competitive scholarship for four months observership with an American plastic surgeon of his choice from December 2019 to April 2020.  He came to see advanced surgery and postoperative results unfiltered in Pittsburgh and has not been disappointed.  He hopes to bring to the Middle East the technical advances pioneered by Dr. Hurwitz such as the oblique flankplasty, spiral flap reshaping of the breasts, Boomerang pattern correction of gynecomastia, and the L-Brachioplasty, as well as the skills of advancing new technology of fat suction and skin shrinkage with these procedures. Pitt senior resident Walter Joseph will kick off the morning with an assessment of minimally invasive, electromagnetic and bipolar radiofrequency body contouring procedures, including long term result in several patients of Dr. Hurwitz.

For the physicians and students who attend the January 15 grand rounds, Dr. Hurwitz will explain how total body lift surgery came to happen and what have been the scientific, social and patient highlights of cultivating body contouring specialty over the past 22 years. He anticipates that the brilliant but impressionable residents and medical students will be inspired to take a similar path towards developing and advancing their specialty interest in plastic surgery.  They need to understand long term goals, the search for excellence, unraveling deficiencies and realizing the length of time, it takes to make a difference and the considerable effort in preparation of lectures, traveling and manuscripts and book chapters.  The satisfactions and rewards will be self-evident to those who attend. Dr. Hurwitz is clear that this approach to the practice of plastic surgery has not only brought achievements in innovation, but the best possible care for his patients one of time, day in and day out.
