ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The medical landscape of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery is evolving. The demand for more inventive, less invasive procedures for the face and all areas of the body continues to increase. To keep up with the evolution, the hottest topics, technologies, and advances will be presented at Plastic Surgery 2007. The meeting, held Oct. 26-31 at the Baltimore Convention Center, will be attended by more than 6,000 doctors, medical personnel and exhibitors in the field of plastic surgery.

"This year's meeting will offer new topics and sessions unlike any presented before and will address innovations in plastic surgery," said ASPS President Roxanne Guy, MD. "There is increasing consumer demand for non- and minimally-invasive procedures not only for the face, but for all areas of the body. The world's top plastic surgeons will assemble to discuss the safety and effectiveness of emerging treatments such as non-invasive fat-melting procedures and quality-of-life-enhancing peripheral nerve surgeries that will allow amputees to better move prosthetics."
