DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2013) - Dr. Jack P. Gunter, a Dallas plastic surgeon, is most well-known for his contributions to rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. At the Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery, his private practice, he has been performing rhinoplasty procedures for 35 years. Recently, he was invited to speak at "The Cutting Edge Aesthetic Surgery Symposium 2012," an international interdisciplinary rhinoplasty symposium on the advanced sculpting of the nose.

The event, which took place the last weekend of November in New York City, marked the 32nd annual symposium chaired by Dr. Sherrel Aston and Dr. Dan Baker. The symposium featured a world-renowned faculty of plastic surgeons speaking on rhinoplasty topics including:

  • The influence of stem cell biology
  • The use of fillers and neurotoxins
  • Open vs. closed surgical techniques
  • Nasal aesthetic balance
  • Secondary rhinoplasty
  • Patient safety

Dr. Gunter delivered a keynote lecture titled "Who Says Rhinoplasty is a Difficult Operation?" During his address, Dr. Gunter highlighted various aspects of rhinoplasty methodology including:

  • The most difficult operation in aesthetic plastic surgery to get consistently good results is rhinoplasty
  • Secondary rhinoplasty (operation on previously operated nose) is much more difficult than first-time rhinoplasty
  • Learning this operation is a lifetime process and very few surgeons will ever be able to say they have done a "perfect" nose
  • To be good at this operation, the surgeon must be dedicated, critical of his/her own results and rhinoplasty must be one of his/her most frequently performed operations

Utilizing his 35 years of experience, Dr. Gunter acts as a source of knowledge and a mentor for the conference attendees. "The Cutting Edge" symposium is accredited by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and offers attending physicians continuing education credit for their participation. Dr. Gunter looks forward to opportunities such as this symposium as a chance to share information and engage in debate with his fellow faculty members on controversial areas of the field.

Whether undergoing primary rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty, Dr. Gunter hopes the patients of his Dallas plastic surgery practice feel confident they are receiving the best possible care. As one of the leading educators in the field of rhinoplasty, Dr. Gunter always operates with the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technology the field has to offer.
