Creating the Youthful Eye - Is Less Really More?
Embargo for Release: Monday, October 26, 2009

Take a look at the latest issue of Marie Claire and you're sure to notice the fresh-faced beauty with youthful eyes on the cover. Many try to recapture this look through eyelid rejuvenation. However, when it comes to eyelid surgery, is it better to remove or reposition tissue in the upper eyelid? Plastic surgeons at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference, Oct. 23-27, in Seattle, will present differing perspectives on eyelid rejuvenation, comparing tradition, tried and true, versus novel approaches. The common use of fillers and muscle relaxants (botulinum toxins) around the eye has lead to a serious reconsideration on how to best enhance the appearance of the upper eyelid region.    

By the Numbers:

More than 220,000 eyelid surgeries were performed in 2008, making it the fourth most popular procedure, reports the ASPS.

In 2008, more eyelid surgeries were performed in the Mountain and Pacific regions of the U.S., than anywhere else in the country.

Panel: "Rejuvenation of the Upper Eyelid - Is Less Really More" is being held on Mon., Oct. 26, 9:45-10:15AM PDT, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.

But, the Butt Matters!
Embargo for Release: Monday, October 26, 2009

While most Americans consider the face the most important cosmetic asset they possess, a growing number of people are very concerned about the appearance of their backsides.    Buttock rejuvenation is an increasingly popular procedure ... particularly for people who have had massive weight loss. A panel of plastic surgeons will analyze aesthetic and surgical options to buttock rejuvenation ranging from fat grafting to autoaugmentation (using lower back tissue traditionally removed during a butt lift) with the goal of optimizing patient outcomes and preventing complications at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference, Oct. 23-27, in Seattle.

By the Numbers:

In 2008, more than 3,500 buttock lifts and 853 buttock implant procedures were performed, reports the ASPS.

Buttock lifts are up 162 percent since 2000.

Panel: "Achieving Predictable Outcomes in Buttock Rejuvenation - Autoaugmentation vs. Fat Injections" is being held Mon., Oct. 26, 8:00-9:00AM, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.
