The 1st international autologous rhinoplasty workshop PINOKIO 2018 held by Dr. Kim, EFIL plastic center, for itself, made doctors not only from Korea but also from 10 countries such as the us, Taiwan, Bulgaria, etc, visit EFIL plastic center to watch and learn Dr. Peter’s live-surgery and cases for ultra fine cartilage rhinoplasty, sharing medical technology with visitors.
From recommendation of the participant for this PINOKIO workshop, his acquaintance, a dermatologist, which is skin doctor, came over to EFIL plastic center to have rhinoplasty and perinasal augmentation, which was very supportive for Medicity Daegu reputation.
Besides, so far, the opportunity for foreign doctors to see Dr. Peter’s surgery and training has been given.

This has been very helpful for spreading medical techniques.
