The 10th Anniversary ESLAS meeting was held in Athens, Greece, only fitting as the first meeting was held there under the Presidency of Dr Paraskevas "Vakis" Kontoes, who was also the very able president of the 10th anniversary meeting. The official opening was addressed by the Greek Minister of Health, and the offical handing over of the WAMA Presidency from Dr Junichiro Kubota to Dr Kontoes was performed, followed by a concert of Ancient Greek music and song, performed on original instruments. This first-class meeting was attended by over 350 attendees, and was held in conjunction with the International Academy of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (IAAPS) and the World Anti-ageing Medical Association (WAMA). Attendees heard 4 special guest lectures, 50 session presentations and 15 free communications. There were concurrent morning and afternoon workshops, and then the congress concluded with televised live demonstrations on the main auditorium stage. The first class scientific programme was complemented by a superb social programme, as was befitting the cradle of civilization.
