Tampa, FL (PressExposure) August 04, 2011 -- In between consulting with new patients, performing surgery, and following up with post-operative patients, Dr. Mack finds time to educate the community. Whether it is potential new patients or other physicians, he presents at conferences every month which focus on his specialty of oculoplastic and facial cosmetic surgery. In addition to professional events, Dr. Mack also hosts his own monthly Facial Rejuvenation Seminar either in his office or at The Grape at International Plaza.
During the week of May 12th, 2011 Dr. William Mack attended the 2011 ASOPRS Spring Symposium in Amelia Island, Florida. The Symposium was sponsored by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS.) "Founded in 1969 to establish a qualified body of surgeons who have training and experience in this highly specialized field. The purpose of ASOPRS is to advance education, research and the quality of clinical practice in the fields of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery specializing in the face, orbits, eyelids, and lacrimal system. Dr. Mack is honored to be a fellow of ASOPRS, as there are only 550 national and international members. To help train well qualified physicians, ASOPRS sponsors several scientific meetings each year and also sponsors specialized fellowship training for postgraduate physicians who have completed an accredited ophthalmology residency."

Dr. Mack and his staff will be in the Hyde Park Village on Thursday presenting "Everything You Need to Know About Eyelid Surgery." The following is a quote from the program promoting this great community event: "Changes to the eye, eyelid or area around the eye can occur as a result of a number of different diseases or conditions as well as from aging. The eyelids protect the eye, distribute tears and limit the amount of light entering the eye. A breakdown with any of those functions can cause swelling, drooping, sensitivity and/or many other changes to this area. Those affected by any of these conditions can benefit both functionally and cosmetically following eyelid surgery. Join us at this educational session for all the up-to-date- advances in eyelid surgery." Furthermore, Dr. Mack and his staff will finish off the week with their appearance at the "Speaking for Women's Health" event hosted by Tampa General Hospital at the Tampa Convention Center.
