ASAPS hits the “Big Apple”: 2013 Annual MeetingPosted on March 22, 2013
Yes, it’s that time of year: time for the biggest gathering of aesthetic plastic surgeons from around the world, the annual American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery meeting. This time, it’s back in New York City, at the Convention Center, starting in about 3 weeks.
I’ll be there, listening to the latest on technical improvements and new equipment, participating in several committees and a couple of panels. This year, for the first time, I am heavily involved in a teaching course which I’m pretty excited about. It’s called “What Patients Really Want”, and it is all about how to improve the overall patient experience as they go from consult to surgery to post-operative care. I’ll be joined by ASAPS past-president Dr. Monte Eaves, Realself.com CEO Tom Seery, and Marie Olesen, plastic surgery consultant par excellence and founder of Real Patient Ratings. It has the potential to be really good!
As usual, I’ll be reporting from the meeting, and will blog about what works, what new & cool developments I see, as well as the flops, failures, the hype and the spin. Stay tuned…
