Over 100 years ago, to become a master of cabinet making, in addition to your ­handicraft years, you had to enlist at the Academy of Fine Arts for half a year. Why is it not necessary for Esthetic Surgery?

Medicine and medical education used to be based on anatomy and morphology. Whereas dimensions have become smaller, biochemistry is dominating most areas of medicine now. While this was beneficial for patients and doctors alike, specialists in morphologic disciplines like general, traumatologic, reconstructive, maxillofacial and esthetic surgery feel a deficit. A deficit in morphology as well as haptic and artistic qualities.

This deficit is subtle. Some colleagues learn these qualities “on the job”. They may make a sketch to educate the patient, may become artists choosing the “right” implant for a given patient or giving good counsel when planning a rhytidectomy. But these qualities are rarely taught as subjects in their own right.

Gustav Sauser, Professor for Anatomy and Histology at Innsbruck and Vienna, propagated his Anatomic Modelling Course, stressing the importance of touch, feeling and observing anatomical forms.

An artist’s approach to life as well as to surgery will improve results considerably in morphologic surgical specialities.

Our course is to propagate these qualities and help colleagues.

In our sketch course you learn

– to better educate patients using a sketch
– to develop your perceptual skills
– to break down three dimensional proportions into two dimensions
– to better mark patients before surgery
– to use a sketch as a graphic operating report
– these drawing skills will enable you to better communicate with patients and are invaluable in patient education

In our modelling workshop

– you will understand the various principles of plastic shaping
– you will experience graphic, haptic and plastic exercises on the morphology of human body parts (e.g. the head)
– you will learn step-by-step the techniques and artistic design of a clay bust portrait
– you will comprehend holistically and selectively, tactically and visually, and you will discover new approaches, perspectives and experiences
