Area Plastic Surgeon To Host Networking Forum

August 31, 2010

Denville, New Jersey, August 26, 2010 – Saint Clare’s Hospital Plastic Surgeon, Lorelle N. Michelson, M. D., F.A.C.S., LLC, is hosting a buffet networking seminar for people interested in learning about topics of current interest in medicine and Plastic Surgery.

This complimentary forum is designed to facilitate collaboration among participants. It has been conducted several times yearly in divers venues during the past three decades. The next Image Forum is scheduled for Sunday, September 26, 2010 at 11 AM in the Urban Auditorium of Saint Clare’s Hospital Denville Campus.

The Center for Food Action, honored at previous events, will also be a focal point of the meeting. This non-profit Bergen County-based group provides tireless support to New Jersey residents in need. Their efforts have redoubled during these particularly trying times. A special dedication to this outstanding organization is planned.

Dr. Michelson will be joined by Patricia Dreyfuss, M. D. Dr. Dreyfuss is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as a prominent New Jersey physician. Dr. Dreyfuss’ talk, “When Is It Time To Have A Baby?” will provide guidance about pressing concerns.

Dermatechnician, MaryAnn Velardi, will speak about the application of permanent cosmetics in the medical setting. Ms. Velardi often enlists the assistance of a model to facilitate her demonstrations. Ms. Velardi, an experienced practitioner, is also an instructor in this field.

Ms. Barbara Grohs, long-time supporter and member of the Board of Directors of the Center for Food Action, as well as other devoted CFA volunteers, will likewise be present.

Dr. Michelson will discuss Cosmetic Nose Surgery and she will also talk about a typical “Day in the Life of a Plastic Ssurgeon.” Dr. Michelson encourages energetic audience interaction.

“Plastic surgery has become noticeably mainstream. More people are at ease discussing cosmetic surgery they have had,” Dr. Michelson said. “There are, however, individuals who might be contemplating a procedure and are unaware of newer techniques, those that might be less invasive, or adjunctive technology.”

Michelson, a Bergen County resident, periodically facilitates these workshops and she has hosted similar educational gatherings for well over 25 years. “The symposia are designed to be fun and, above all, educational,” Michelson said. “There is, in addition, great networking potential, especially for business owners and entrepreneurs catering to a savvy, image-oriented clientele.”

Michelson, a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/New Jersey Medical School, maintains her private practice in Denville as well as in Englewood, New Jersey.

Exhibitors of trendy, boutique items, including a distributor of handmade jewelry, a purveyor of unique scented candles, a soap distributor and a creator of fine art cards will, among others, be on site.

The West Essex Chamber Players will provide classical and contemporary musical selections. Unique samples, door prizes and a complimentary light luncheon are offered.

The Image Forum convenes at 11 AM on Sunday, September 26, 2010. Saint Clare’s Hospital is located at 25 Pocono Road, Denville, New Jersey 07834. The Urban Auditorium is on the Ground Floor. Registration is limited.
