Tweets from the Aesthetic Meeting 2018

Op-Med is a collection of original articles contributed by Doximity members.

Thousands of plastic surgeons recently flocked to the Big Apple to attend the largest professional meeting for aesthetic medicine—The Aesthetic Meeting, hosted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

There was a new emphasis on lifelong learning for the profession…

…and ASAPS honored plastic surgeons who are influential on social media.

As for trending clinical topics, there was a strong emphasis on less surgery…

….as well as patient satisfaction.

Notably, social media (specifically Snapchat) was a clinical topic, too…

That’s a wrap for The Aesthetic Meeting 2018!
