ABOUT LF ACADEMY
When we initiated the Lohuis-Filipović Medical Group we also founded the Lohuis-Filipović Academy to share our knowledge and experience.
The Lohuis-Filipović Academy provides books, courses, a fellowship in facial plastic surgery, peer-reviewed publications, as well as observership in facial plastic surgery, hair restoration, headache and apnea treatment. These tools may help individual physicians to polish their talents by gaining knowledge and understanding by improving abilities and attitude.
“Every operation presents a surgeon with a diversity of anatomy, contours, proportions, requiring a series of organized and interrelated surgical maneuvers tailored to each patient’s anatomical and functional needs. Such skills require many years of study and experience as the surgeon observes, analyzes, and modifies surgical results. In particular rhinoplasty knows a long learning curve that lasts a life-time.”

Advanced Caucasian and Mediterranean Rhinoplasty
written by: Peter JFM Lohuis, MD PhD
The book Advanced Caucasean and Mediterranean Rhinoplasty follows the Chinese adage according to which ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. The last decennium the author developed the habit to take his camera consistently to the operating room, which formed the basis for the many intraoperative open structure rhinoplasty photographs in full color.
The text is divided in small chapters that were written in pearl form and joined up in a string-like manner. Numerous comprehensible schematic drawings help to elucidate the text. The vision displayed in this book will hopefully serve as a role model for the young surgeon to develop his/her own strategy for obtaining consistently good results in the treatment of Caucasian and Mediterranean rhinoplasty cases.
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
editors: Hade Vuyk and Peter JFM Lohuis, MD PhD
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a comprehensive and practical guide to performing facial surgical procedures, and contains a balance of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures that mirrors typical European practice. It has arisen as an initiative of the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (EAFPS), and in accordance with this status is a comprehensive book that gives a complete update on the speciality as it is practiced in Europe. The contributors have many years of
clinical practice as well as research experience in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
COURSES FOR COLLEAGUES
Highlights of functional and esthetic rhinoplastic surgery.
New concept rhinoplasty course in which cadaver dissection is replaced by lectures discussing treatment philosophies, technical pearls and difficult cases in our common journey to achieve consistently good and reliable results.
Skin Cancer of Head and Neck
This symposium deals with the process of diagnosis and treatment of primary skin cancer and its regional metastases.
Local and regional flap physiology and planning is discussed as well as proper reconstructive selection and techniques for more complex skin cancer defects.
The symposium concerns a one day intensive course with compact information on head and neck skin cancer and reconstruction for residents and specialists working in the field of dermatology, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, and general surgery.
Rejuvenation of Face and Neck
Along with an ever increase in elderly population the hunger for rejuvenation procedures has replaced the earlier taboo attached to them. This course intends to summarize the current state of the art in rejuvenation medicine through lectures providing pearls and the pitfalls and covers the most recent information on cosmeceuticals (prevention and treatment), office management, lasers, BTX, fillers, fat transplantation, minimal invasive procedures, hair transplantation and rejuvenation surgery
We offer the highest form of sub-specialized education in the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the European Union level.
Programs are recognized and sponsored by The European Academy for Facial Plastic Surgery (EAPFS).
