3M + KCI Pledge Support as Platinum Sponsors of Plastic Surgery The Meeting

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) announces 3M + KCI is a Platinum sponsor of Plastic Surgery The Meeting, the world's largest scientific conference for plastic surgeons.

Hosted by the ASPS, the premier educational and networking event of the year for domestic and international plastic surgeons will be hosted live online Oct. 16-18 with original on-demand programming available over the course of 50 days, from Oct. 9-Nov. 30. The virtual meeting features nearly 100 live sessions, more than 50 on-demand sessions and over 1,300 abstract presentations.

3M, along with newly acquired KCI, focuses on providing better care through patient-centered science.

"With the PREVENA RESTOR BELLA•FORM™ System, we are advancing how surgeons can care for patients recovering from surgery, such as soft tissue reconstructive procedures. This first-to-market therapy was built specifically with the patient's recovery journey in mind," said Ronald Silverman, MD, FACS, Chief Medical Officer, KCI. "The PREVENA RESTOR BELLA•FORM™ System addresses a significant clinical need by reimagining the traditional applications of negative pressure and thinking beyond the incision to help support improved healing in aspirational ways – all backed by the undisputed outcomes of PREVENA™ Therapy."

Corporate partners at the Premier Support levels receive unprecedented opportunities to communicate with aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons from around the world. The Platinum level of support is intended for companies who want to stand apart from their competitors and truly value the audience of plastic surgeons.
