We aim to promote evidence-based work in aesthetic surgery, non-surgical aesthetics and regenerative medicine. The Faculty is the first multidisciplinary team in the world to be devoted to education and training in aesthetics. We are proud to announce the development of two new master’s programmes for 2021 start:

  • Master of Surgery in Aesthetic Surgery
