Assistant Professor, Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Dr. Philip Brazio specializes in microsurgical breast, extremity, and lymphatic reconstruction at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He completed his General Surgery residency at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma Center, followed by Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Southern California and LA County Medical Center. He completed his training with a fellowship in microvascular and supermicrosurgical lymphatic reconstruction with a fellowship at Stanford University.
Dr. Brazio is a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and American Board of Plastic Surgery, and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. His research focuses on optimizing extremity and lymphatic reconstruction outcomes. He is active through the ASPS Billing and Payment Coding Committee in advocating for patient access to lymphatic surgery.
Professor, International Center for Lymphedema, Hiroshima University Hospital, Hiroshima, Japan.
Prof. Koshima is the past president of World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery, executive director of the Japanese Society of Lymphology, and honorary president of International Society of Lymphology. He is a world authority in many areas of plastic surgery including supermicrosurgery (flap transfer with vascular anastomosis around 0.5mm), perforator flaps, head and neck reconstruction (muscle transfer and vascular nerve flaps for facial palsy, vascularized fat flap for lipodystrophy and sclerodermia, irradiated severe facial deformity, mandibular loss etc.) and lymphedema (surgical treatments LVA, node transfer and liposuction).

Yukio Seki specializes in Reconstructive Microsurgery, especially in Lymphedema, Breast, Head and Neck, and Trauma. He developed the Superior-Edge-of-the-Knee Incision (SEKI) method in 2013 for lower extremity lymphedema, and the dynamic-LVA method for upper extremity lymphedema in 2016. He leant fantasy and all possibility in Reconstructive Microsurgery from prof. Isao Koshima. He likes to pursue one thing/one treatment thoroughly. However, at the same time, he always wants to renew his strategies and techniques in Plastic Surgery. Now he believes that Nanomicrosurgery with Robotic Microsurgery will develop into new frontiers in Reconstructive Surgery.

Prof. Yujin Myung is a plastic surgeon and doctor of medicine working as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Seoul National University's Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Seoul National University Bundang Hospital (SNUBH). Among many treatment areas of plastic surgery, he has been carrying out medical treatment and research activities, especially in breast cancer reconstruction, aesthetic breast surgery including augmentation and reduction, lymphedema supermicrosurgery, and body contouring surgery. He is performing supermicrosurgery of cancer-related lymphedema, which requires the most cutting edge microsurgical technique among breast cancer reconstruction surgery and state of the art operation, which are rapidly increasing in recent years.
