CAPSCO labiaplasty webinar

UK, 24th May 2020. Today, CAPSCO held its inaugural webinar on clinical matters. Although CAPSCO, as an organisation, is committed to developing plastic surgeons’ businesses and clinics, we also realise that our members are international experts in clinical aspects of plastic surgery. Our first clinical webinar was on all aspects of labiaplasty and there were over 30 participants at this event. The event went on for around two hours with active participation from several of the attendees. We were honoured to have three experts, Mr Paul Banwell, Ms Nora Nugent and Mr Shailesh Vadodaria, present and speak at the event which was moderated and chaired by Mr Taimur Shoaib. We look forward to more webinars on both clinical and business aspects of plastic surgery.
