"It was nice to get the elite to share their experiences and listen to people who invented certain techniques and see it done first-hand."
Mr Erian explained that different techniques were discussed as a result of all the hype in the media.
He said: "Some people carry out plastic surgery just to make money. The purpose of the day was to see which techniques work and those which don't work so people get the right information. Unfortunately there are some people who aren't getting value for money."
Mr Erian said he hopes the event will become a regular occurrence.
"The day was nice scientifically," he said.
"It's nice to see in 2007 what's available and what's not available."
If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Mr Erian advices them to research surgeons thoroughly, but also to take time to think about whether it is right for them.
"Plastic surgery isn't for everyone," he said. "Some people may just need a holiday or change of partner.
