Hot Topics in Plastic Surgery is a top panel at the ASPS annual meeting. The webinar will bring panelists right to the journalists who were unable to attend the annual meeting or unable to ask the panelists questions during the panel session scheduled on Fri., Oct. 23. As demand for more inventive, less invasive procedures for the face and body continues, are emerging treatments cutting edge or just “buyer beware” marketing hype? What promise do innovations being studied or awaiting FDA approval hold? This is your opportunity to get the answers!
