As sophisticated as plastic surgery has become in the last 20 years, there is always room for innovation and improvement in this field. From gummy bear implants to non-invasive dermal fillers, women in Tennessee have benefited from the tireless research medical professionals devote to this field every day.

In fact, advancements in cosmetic surgery are poised to be the main event at the 82nd annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in San Diego next month. According to an ASPS press release, “this year’s meeting will have a reinvigorated focus on cosmetic surgery with a new two-day session devoted entirely to key aesthetic procedures such as breast augmentation, body contouring, surgical facial rejuvenation and non-invasive treatments.”

The source also states that South Korea has been named the 2013 Honored Guest Nation in attendance because of the incredible innovations plastic surgeons from this country have pioneered. As we discussed recently, cosmetic enhancements have become incredibly pervasive in the wake of Korea’s economic boom, with top pop stars openly advertising the work they’ve had done.

Breast reconstruction techniques are also on the docket for the upcoming meeting, as plastic surgeons join together to discuss how this transformative operation can be further perfected to ensure patient safety and satisfaction.
