ASPS Plastic Surgery Vlog
Watch Drs. Karen Horton and Jamie Moenster debunk the myths. Plastic surgery isn't always scarless (but we know where to hide and treat them). It isn't vain (taking care of yourself never is). It isn't fake (you'll look like yourself, just refreshed).
When should you start fillers and neurotoxins to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin? Drs. Smita Ramanadham and Ashley Amalfi talk prejuvenation, and the BIGGEST thing is to start before lines become permanent. If you're not moving those muscles, you're not making wrinkles.

A successful recovery is an essential part of a successful procedure. ASPS members' innovations in long-lasting anesthetics will help relieve symptoms of nausea and stomach pain (and potentially reduce opioid dependence) while helping patients return to normal activities sooner and more safely.
