Plastic surgery is undeniably transformative. In recent years, the landscape of plastic surgery has evolved, both in techniques and perception. Today, there's a more transparent dialogue around cosmetic procedures, emphasizing their core values: healing, self-actualization and elevating quality of life through an emphasis on patient safety, evidence-based practice and efficacy.

These years have further shown how adaptive and innovative ASPS Member Surgeons can be, navigating challenges and constantly evolving to meet the diverse needs of their patients. This report sheds light on these efforts, highlighting real patient choices made under the guidance of board-certified plastic surgeons and offering a glimpse to future trends.

Now, let's explore these insights and discuss this exciting chapter in the storied history of plastic surgery.
