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

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.
