The 1989 Southern Region Meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery took place at the Registry Resort in Naples, Fla, on January 12, 1989. In addition to the beautiful weather and luxurious accommodations, participants and attendees enjoyed an enlightening scientific program that featured a blend of cosmetic and reconstructive topics. Program speakers ranged from otolaryngology–head and neck surgery residents to highly experienced practicing surgeons. The morning presentations dealt with reconstructive topics, and the afternoon session covered mostly cosmetic topics. After every two or three presentations, there was a discussion that allowed comments and questions from the audience.
One of the many good presentations was by Ira Papel of The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md. He presented an innovative method for treating massive keloids of the earlobe. Dr Papel stated that, in spite of various types of treatments used in the past, these lesions tend to recur.
