Date:9/24/2008

American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Meeting, Chicago, Oct. 31 - Nov. 5

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- From innovative facial reanimation procedures that restore patients' ability to smile to new data suggesting it may be safe and effective to use fat injections to enhance breast reconstruction results, the latest research, procedures, and technologies will be presented at Plastic Surgery 2008, the annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The meeting, held Oct. 31 - Nov. 5, in Chicago at the McCormick Place West Convention Center, will be attended by more than 6,000 doctors, medical personnel and exhibitors in the field of plastic surgery.

"Plastic Surgery 2008 will offer new research on a variety of topics including patient satisfaction and outcomes in breast surgery and facial rejuvenation, body contouring after massive weight loss, a review of stem cell data and its potential to improve fat transfer and survival, and more," said ASPS President Richard D'Amico, MD. "We will also explore emerging, sometimes controversial, areas where further scientific evidence is needed such as fat injections for breast augmentation. The amazing advances we've made in repairing devastating facial injuries in soldiers injured in Iraq and how these advances are bridged to help civilians who are victims of inner-city violence will be a highlight. The innovations to be presented are poised to transform the specialty and advance medicine as a whole."
