International aesthetic surgery meeting

I returned recently from Panama as an invited lecturer at their International aesthetic surgery meeting  I delivered eight lectures ranging from my surgical checklist to ensure the safe delivery of care, to advanced techniques in facial rejuvenation and body contouring.  Considering that the practicing plastic surgeons in Panama regard this meeting as their primary source for furthering their surgical education, I was truly touched by the kindness and gratitude they extended to me.

I look forward to returning to continue to advance the art and science of aesthetic surgery in this beautiful country.  


I have just been bestowed a great honour as a new member of the Board of the premier surgical journal in our field:  The Aesthetic Journal (ASJ).  This journal stands as the go-to resource worldwide for the publication of any and all new research and techniques in the field. In this position, I will be selecting, reviewing and commenting upon articles for publication.  You can read many of my already published ASJ articles by visiting the publications link on my website:   As well, earlier this year, I was also excited to become a Board member of the equally premiere surgical society in our field, The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). My charge on the Board is to ensure that the highest quality education is offered to my colleagues and the most useful aesthetic surgery information is delivered to our patients.


Next up for my lecture travels is the University of Minnesota as the guest speaker for the annual meeting of the Minnesota Plastic Surgical Society.  And then it’s off to New Orleans for our Annual ASAPS national meeting where I will be teaching my course on building a successful aesthetic practice as well as moderating a panel on a topic near and dear to my heart: strategies for the delivery of the safest care as possible to our patients. And finally, I will once again be “up for bid”:  that is, to help support the raising of funds for research within our national society (ASERF) I have offered up myself! That is, my colleagues will be bidding on me to both donate to our research foundation and “visit an expert for a day”, spending the day with me and observing one of my surgeries. I’ve also been an expert training site for several few years now for the International Society of Aesthetic Surgeons (ISAPS) hosting colleagues from literally around the world (Brazil, Columbia, India, Russia, Australia).
