Dear colleague,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is our great pleasure to invite you to register at Barcelona Breast Meeting – BBM 2019 to be held on March 13th-15th 2019 at Hospital de Sant Pau – Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain).

This will be a truly special event, bringing together world leaders in aesthetic, oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery. This meeting will provide a unique opportunity to update and share experiences in this field that we are all so passionate about.

This year we are going to focus in learning the small details of the diverse techniques from the experts that make the difference between good results and the best results.

Every topic will be approached with lectures, practical video surgeries tricks and tips and how to avoid the potential complications.

Barcelona is a dynamic and vital Mediterranean city and we are sure that you will enjoy your stay with us. There will be an interesting cultural and social programme as well as the scientific events. We hope you will be able to join us next March in Barcelona.

Sincerely yours,

Professor Jaume Masià & Professor Jian Farhadi
