FACExpert is a pioneer event that brings together the expertise of facial surgeons and dermatologists to provide advanced non-surgical aesthetics education. It aims to bridge the gap between surgical and non-surgical approaches and promote the learning of advanced facial anatomy in the aesthetic mainstream.
The event is open to registered healthcare professionals, such as doctors, dentists, and nurses, who are already established in the non-surgical aesthetics market. The event is also designed for surgeons of all levels and specialties who are interested in how non-surgical aesthetics treatments may relate to, integrate with and complement surgical aesthetics practice.
The one-day meeting will take place on Saturday, November 4, 2023, at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. It will feature a lecture theatre-based educational programme led by expert injectors, surgeons, and global KOLs, with a post-event networking session with drinks and canopes.
The programme is designed for experienced injectors and surgeons who wish to deepen their understanding of facial anatomy and the key interface between surgical and non-surgical approaches.
FACExpert builds on the success of the FACExpo event, which was held for the first time last year, and was targeted at entry-level healthcare professionals interested in aesthetics. This year’s inaugural FACExpert meeting is a continuation of the educational journey in innovation and will provide even more comprehensive education to established practitioners.

Building on the success of FACExpo, which was a pioneer one-day educational programme aimed at entry-level healthcare professionals interested in aesthetics, FACExpert represents a new level of educational content and delivery, with a strong focus on anatomy, complications & collaborative working between surgeons and injectors.
Following on from FACExpo, the demand for high-quality, expert-led, evidence-based education for experienced and established practitioners has been overwhelming, and FACExpert is a novel approach to help meet this demand and need.
The programme represents a commitment to educational innovation and a dedication to providing comprehensive education to practitioners at all levels of experience.

Mr James Olding
My name is Mr James Olding, and I am a Specialist Registrar in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in the NHS. I am dual-qualified in medicine and dentistry and an international Key Opinion Leader in aesthetics, teaching and presenting globally.
In my day-to-day work in facial trauma and reconstructive surgery in the NHS, I am inspired by the immense complexity of facial anatomy, and I am lucky enough to have careers in both the surgical and non-surgical spheres to enable me to truly explore this fascinating and fundamental interface.
Quite simply, surgeons and non-surgeons have a huge amount to learn from each other. Facilitating this transfer of knowledge and expertise underpins much of the work I undertake, and it is the essence of FACExpert.
