Notes from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Meeting

I’ve just returned from the 2008 meeting of the ASPS- thousands of plastic surgeons converged in Chicago last weekend to discuss the latest trends in plastic surgery, as well as issues of patient safety and improving plastic surgery outcomes for patients around the country and the world. I had the pleasure of being involved with two of the most popular programs, one of which I’ve been asked to put together now for I think the 6th year running. We discussed issues ranging from wound care to breast augmentation, breast lifts, breast implants, body contouring, facelifts, and eyelid surgery. I had the opportunity to teach by sharing my thoughts, while hearing from some of the world’s experts about their recommendations and experiences. Having previously served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, I also had the great opportunity to see many of my friends from around the country, and help mentor some of the younger, up and coming plastic surgeons. On top of that, I got to do some shopping on Michigan Avenue, and have some fantastic Italian food. And then there was that amazing Chicago style hot dog at O’Hare airport….. ☺ I’ll try to include some of my thoughts about some of our discussions over the next few blog entries, and I’ll limit my thoughts to plastic surgery instead of pasta and hot dogs.
