It is expected that Plastic Surgery 2006 would cover the topics varying from the latest data on the psychological and physical benefits, patient needs and presentations by eminent plastic surgeons sharing their vision of the future of plastic surgery, along with the most recent topics, technologies, and advances.

'As ASPS celebrates 75 years of history and advances in plastic surgery, this year's meeting will look ahead, focusing on the future needs and demands of patients,' said ASPS President Bruce Cunningham, MD.
