MIPSS 2019. Marbella International Plastic Surgery Summer School in Málaga Spain

We are pleased to announce the 4th International Plastic Surgery Summer School in Marbella!

After now already 3 successful editions, we are again looking forward to sharing knowledge with our colleagues from all over the world again. MIPSS has developed into an renown international event where Plastic Surgeons from all over the world share their honest experiences, discuss pearls and pitfalls of new techniques and contribute selected presentations within their field of expertise.

The 2018 edition was our biggest meeting so far and more than 145 attendees from all over the world coming to Marbella ensured us that our concept is very well received.

The meeting consists of two and a half-days of live-surgeries and in depth presentations in 7 scientific panels, allowing and specifically aiming for a direct and on-going exchange between faculty and attendees. To ensure the workshop character of the meeting allowing for exchange and discussion, places are limited to 150 participants. This year’s scientific program will again boast an impressive array of internationally recognized speakers covering a wide range of Plastic, Aesthetic and Transgender Surgery procedures as well as a non-surgical treatments, practice management, optimization and marketing.

2 mornings of Live Surgery performed by recognized experts and ISAPS Faculty members will show you new approaches and individual tricks for better surgical outcomes. For the second time there will be a panel on advanced injectable / non-surgical treatments and for the first time we will have an hands-on workshop on Saturday for advanced injectable training. Places for this workshop are limited to 12 participants and need to be registered separately.

The scientific sessions will take place at the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel. Situated conveniently in the pulsating lifestyle heart of the sun soaked “Costa del Sol”, and in walking distance to the famous yacht harbor Puerto Banús, the congress venue sets a great background to explore the surroundings and for our social program. Take a stroll through the picturesque old town of Marbella, try some tipical “tapas” with Spanish wine, visit a Flamenco session, spend some time in the famous beach clubs of Puerto Bánus and open all your senses to the feel of Mediterranean summer in Andalucia…. The pristine Mediterranean Sea, the excellent weather at that time of the year and the vibrant nightlife that characterize Marbella allow us to create a fantastic social program where all participants can network and enjoy together with their international peers.

My team and I are welcoming you in June for MIPSS 2019!


We are looking forward to seeing you all back for the 4th edition of MIPSS in 2019, June 20th - 22nd

Please register early as places are limited to 150!

21:00 Faculty Dinner


8:00 – 11:00 = GROUP

We believe that to master a procedure we not only have to practice but also to really understand the tools we use in great detail. From patient preparation, analysis of the anatomy to the final touch for your injection technique every detail will make a difference!
Our goal is not only to give you an algorithm of how to assess a patient’s face according to anatomical structure and proportions, but also to show how to use the fillers and toxins available in the market in a more effective way.
We will introduce you into the different types of fillers available taking into account their rheology and show you how to use toxins better by modulating dose, dilution and diffusion.
You will be able to explore different injection techniques using your preferred technique (cannula / needle) in actual patients and in face dummies to help you in making your procedures safer.
Experience the power of really understanding facial structure & contour and learn how to smoothen the transitions of the face to achieve the best version of your patients.

Andalusia Màlaga MIPSS 2018
The region of Andalusia MIPSS 2019

Axis between Europe and Africa and meeting point of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, this region has been coveted by many different cultures throughout history and prehistory.

The region of Andalusia has a surface area of 87,268 km² and represents 17.3% of Spain. It is, on its own, larger than countries like Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Austria or Switzerland.

The diversity of landscapes and geographical terrain gives rise to an array of environments that go from the heat of the Guadalquivir River valley through to luxuriant midmountain areas, volcanic landscapes such as the Tabernas desert, and the snow-capped peaks of Sierra Nevada.

The Guadalquivir is Andalusia’s most important river and brings life to many areas in its journey across the region. In barely forty kilometres you can go from Alpine mountain landscapes to tropical areas on the shores of the Mediterranean. The coast of Andalusia stretches for almost 900 kilometres and is home to a large number of cities, towns and beaches that are a delight to visit.

Andalusia Màlaga MIPSS 2019
Historic Andalusia MIPSS 2019

Historic cities like Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada can take you back in time and show you the impact of more than 700 years of moorish influence in Andalusia, resulting in a cultural heritage very different from the rest of Spain.

Malaga underwent a positive transformation as a city over the last 10 years, offering a vibrant night life in the heart of the old town, various internationally recognised museums and collections like the Picasso Museum, The Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection or the Centre Pompidou and a lively port home to many cultural events in the summer.

Only within 1 hour of drive from the buzzing atmosphere of the world famous beach resort Puerto Banús, our congress venue, you can wander miles of empty beaches on the Atlantic coast near the laid back Surfer´s town Tarifa or visit Ronda and the world famous white villages of Andalusia tucked away in the breathtaking beauty of the Sierra de Ronda mountain range.

The whole ensemble represents a range of attractions for tourists that goes from impressive monuments in large towns to typical small villages, which have provided a constant source of inspiration for all kinds of artists.

Don’t miss it. Andalusia loves you…
