Plastic surgery reflects on its past; Highlights innovations for the future of the specialty

WHO: More than 6,000 plastic surgeons and others involved in the specialty from around the world.

WHAT: Plastic Surgery 2006, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) annual scientific meeting, will include presentations by experts discussing cutting-edge techniques and developments and the latest issues affecting plastic surgery. Studies to be presented include lip augmentation/rejuvenation restoring loss of fat due to age, breast asymmetry surgery improving quality of life and self-esteem and unproven criteria for denial of medically necessary breast reduction surgery by insurance companies.
