Lecture: PSEF Maliniac Lecture - Rediscovering the Wheel: Utilizing the Past to Innovate the Future
To outline how many current plastic surgery procedures were originally described in some form by our forefathers. Most new techniques are derivatives of published ideas but forgotten. The perception that, “There is nothing new under the sun” comes from the unique opportunity to access a comprehensive plastic surgery library. Originally assembled by Dr. Mazzola’s uncle and mentor, Sanvenero Rosselli, the library has been expanded by Dr. Mazzola over the last 30 years. This lecture will relay to listeners that the principle value of a great library is in researching the past to facilitate innovation in the future. Examples will include the canons of beauty, leitmotiv of the Renaissance and codified by Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer. All are models for improving facial balance after rhinoplasty and orthognathic surgery. Dr. Mazzola’s education and experience is vast. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctor Degree, and continued his post-graduate training with residencies in otolaryngology and plastic surgery. Dr. Mazzola completed multiple fellowships in locations across Europe and Great Britain and served as Visiting Professor throughout the United States. He maintains board certifications in otolaryngology, plastic surgery and maxillofacial surgery. His organizational memberships range from the Italian Society of Plastic Surgery (SICPRE) to London’s Royal Society of Medicine and he has served as invited lecturer for programs spanning the globe. Dr. Mazzola’s current academic appointment is as Assistant Professor at the University of Milan.
