ASPS Meeting

Next week is the national meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which is in Chicago this year.  This is the largest national forum for plastic surgery, and a great educational opportunity for everyone who comes.  I haven’t missed one of these meetings in nearly 10 years, and every time I learn something new.  As I’ve matured in my practice, I’ve had the opportunity to go from student to teacher in various forums, and I’m very much looking forward to this year’s programs.  I’ve been asked to once again present a panel that I’ve been doing now for 6 years, called “Fresh Faces, Real Cases”- this is one of the most popular events of the meeting, and as director and moderator for this panel, I’ve put together a great program that should produce some very good discussion on breast augmentation, breast lift, body contouring, lower extremity reconstruction, breast reconstruction, and neck lifting.  The breadth of the subject matter makes this one of the most enjoyable parts of the week for me, and the opportunity to interact with hundreds of plastic surgeons at one setting is a real highlight.  Additionally I will be involved with another aesthetic panel, as well as several of the events involving the YPS (Young Plastic Surgeons) Forum- a subdivision of the ASPS which I used to head up when I was younger….  oh well.  As the grey creeps into my head of hair, I’m less eligible to be seen as one of the young crowd.
