  • Neck Rejuvenation

    Did you know that the neck is one of the first places to show signs of aging? This occurs because the skin on our neck is delicate and tends to develop wrinkles faster than they would on the face. Many patients today are combating signs of aging with a neck lift. A neck lift (also known as platysmaplasty) enhances the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles, improving the overall contour of the jawline. 

  • Can Liposuction Give You the Ultimate Silhouette?

    Liposuction (also known as lipoplasty and body contouring surgery) sculpts your body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures. While it doesn't remove cellulite or loose skin, it can change your shape dramatically. 

  • Nonsurgical Options

    While most plastic surgery procedures require some downtime, there are now nonsurgical treatment options that have opened the door to less downtime, recovery, and pain! According to the latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nonsurgical procedures saw a massive increase of 40.6% over the past five years and continue to gain popularity among both patients and surgeons. The top 5 most requested nonsurgical procedures in 2017 were Botox, hyaluronic acid, nonsurgical fat reduction, hair removal, and chemical peels. 

  • Breast Augmentation

    Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular surgical procedures today and with a variety of options available, plastic surgeons can customize the procedure to meet individual patient needs selecting from implant size, shape, and type that meets their aesthetic goals.  

    In this video, ASAPS members and board-certified plastic surgeons, Drs. Steven Camp and Mahlon Kerr discuss patients’ options when it comes to breast implants and what they should know before surgery. 

  • Brazilian Butt Augmentation

    A Brazilian Butt Lift is a term used to describe fat grafting to enlarge the buttocks and hips giving patients an hourglass silhouette. This surgical procedure is a form of buttock augmentation that not only reshapes but enhances the size of a patient’s buttocks. This is done by using fat from the patient’s body and redistributing to these areas. Your surgeon will take fat from where you don’t want it and add it to areas in need of extra fat to give your body natural looking curves.  

  • Modern Day Facelift

    The stigma around facelifts has changed drastically over the past decades. A facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in a range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation. 

  • What is ASERF?

Its mission is to identify and pursue those issues relevant to the advancement, effectiveness and safety of aesthetic surgery through directed research and education for the purpose of benefiting patients, physicians and the entire field of medicine. 

  • Non Invasive Procedures

    Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Isaac Starker shares how plastic surgery has changed from being almost exclusively surgically based to now having an array of treatments options that don’t require surgery and that can be started earlier in life. From treating skin to helping delay signs of aging – with skin care products, energy or light-based treatments, with injectables and fillers. These advancements allow surgeons to continue along the spectrum of care to include some minimally invasive surgical procedures and the moving to more traditional surgical options.
