ASPS Welcomes Galderma, Heron, First Republic Bank and Evolus as Silver Sponsors of Plastic Surgery The Meeting

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is pleased to announce Silver Level support from Galderma, Heron, First Republic Bank and Evolus for Plastic Surgery The Meeting, taking place Sept. 20-23 in San Diego.

"We are excited to have support from Galderma, Heron Therapeutics, First Republic Bank and Evolus for our premier educational event," said ASPS President Alan Matarasso, MD. "The plastic surgery specialty benefits from the great collaboration with these industry leaders. We truly appreciate their support, and we look forward to welcoming them at Plastic Surgery The Meeting."

Galderma is a global dermatology company that partners with health care professionals to provide innovative medical solutions to patients with skin health needs, and Heron Therapeutics, Inc., is a commercial-stage biotechnology company focused on improving the lives of patients by developing best-in-class treatments to address some of the most important unmet patient needs. Heron is developing novel, patient-focused solutions that apply its innovative science and technologies to already-approved pharmacological agents for patients suffering from pain or cancer.

"Galderma is proud to partner with ASPS on this important event that gathers healthcare professionals from all around the world," said from Alisa Lask, Vice President & General Manager, US Aesthetic Business. "We are committed to changing the way the world thinks about skin health and recognize the valuable partnerships with organizations like ASPS that help us achieve that vision."

"Heron is pleased to support ASPS at their annual education event for plastic surgeons, Plastic Surgery The Meeting," said Heron Therapeutics President and Chief Executive Officer Barry Quart, Pharm.D. "Both of our organizations share a common goal of improving postsurgical pain management through the use of innovative non-opioids, keeping more patients opioid-free after surgery."

Plastic Surgery The Meeting is geared toward plastic surgeons, residents and other allied health professionals interested in translating their expanding knowledge into practice, improving patient care and outcomes. The Meeting has provided generations of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons the education they need to grow all aspects of their surgical career and practice.

Corporate partners of the ASPS Premier Support program receive increased visibility, additional benefits and greater recognition for their support at Plastic Surgery The Meeting. Partnering with ASPS provides unprecedented opportunities to communicate and engage with aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons from around the world.

Evolus is a medical aesthetics company that provides physicians and their patients with innovative treatment and procedure options, and First Republic Bank is dedicated to delivering exceptional, relationship-based service to clients, with a solid commitment to responsiveness and actions.

"We are pleased to be a corporate sponsor of the ASPS during our pivotal launch year. In May, we launched Jeuveau® and we've received strong support from the plastic surgery community. We look forward to continuing to support the educational mission of the ASPS," said David Moatazedi, President and CEO, Evolus.

"First Republic Bank is proud to support ASPS and Plastic Surgery The Meeting. We realize that a successful medical practice depends as much on effective financial management as it does on quality care," said David Bloom, Senior Managing Director, First Republic Bank. "Our business bankers understand the unique needs of the healthcare industry and partner with medical professionals to provide creative financing solutions to help them spend less time banking – and more time with their patients."
