Complications Teaching

'The Management of Non-Surgical Complications Through Anatomy'

Eligibility: Medical practitioners with active registration to the following professional bodies: GMC, NMC & GDC.

This is a highly specialised, multi-award winning cadaveric training course, led by Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Mr Dalvi Humzah. Consistent in all of our training courses, the sole emphasis within this training, is the strong emphasis on safety. This is facilitated, in part, through a critical analysis of the empirical literature concerning complication management, supported by a detailed practical component exploring the concepts surrounding the recognition, diagnosis and management of a variety of complications encountered through botulinum toxin & dermal filler treatments, including a hyalase workshop.

In addition, Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training provide our multi-award winning courses in Anatomy and Complications Management as a recognised postgraduate qualification. The Advanced Professional Award in APPLIED CLINICAL FACIAL ANATOMY FOR COSMETIC INTERVENTIONS is a Level 7 qualification, awarded by EduQual, and endorsed by TQUK, an Ofqual-recognised awarding organisation. The qualification is delivered via a ‘blended-learning’ and comprises two compulsory units:

  1. Anatomical Basis for Cosmetic Interventions
  2. Preventing and Treating Complications through Advanced Facial Anatomy

The qualification will be offered with the two qualification units above, using wet-tissue specimens for anatomical teaching, together with written assessments, OSCE stations and reflective portfolios in order to gain the Level 7 postgraduate qualification. This blended learning qualification combines on-line knowledge modules accessed via the Learning Community (virtual learning platform), with face-to-face teaching and assessments. To gain the qualification you will be required to complete pre-course reading and submit post course work via the learning platform. 

  • Access to clinical knowledge modules delivered via the learning community

  • Two days of face-to-face clinical teaching including hands-on sessions on mannequins and wet-tissue specimens

  • Assessment materials including written examination papers and OSCEs

  • Awarding Body examination registration fee

  • Certificate of attendance (CPD route) OR Qualification Certificate & Transcript (Subject to successful completion of the qualification

  • Post course work requires completion of two reflective portfolios. Structure and guidance will be provided.

“There are continual advances which are challenging many pre-conceived and long-standing concepts in anatomy that have implications for how we plan and deliver optimal aesthetic treatments. Evolving knowledge of the fat compartments, ageing of the facial skeleton and the dynamic changes of the tissues with ageing are all areas that are being published and currently researched. Mr Humzah is actively involved in the diagnosis, management and treatment of non-surgical complications with a particular interest in this specialist and advanced area of practice.

A current and in-depth anatomical awareness is imperative to those involved in providing cosmetic non-surgical rejuvenation treatments. In order to treat effectively and safely, it is key that practitioners have a robust and accurate understanding of the dynamic nature of anatomy, which underpins the ageing process and variations that may exist. This will enable appropriate planning of treatments and reduce potential complications."
