The Best Plastic Surgeons

A sampling of the worlds best Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons got together in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, this weekend to share and compare notes on the latest trends in our art. The 2012 Aesthetic Meeting focused on the changing landscape of aesthetic plastic surgery.

Plastic Surgery and Plastic Non-surgery

Everything cosmetic was discussed. Surgical topics included:

  • Facelifts (Rhytidectomy)
  • Eyelid Lifts (Blepharoplasty)
  • Nose Jobs (Rhinoplasty)
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty)
  • Body lifts

Non-surgical topics discussed were:

  • Botox
  • Fillers
  • Lasers
  • Peels
  • Ultrasound
  • Radio frequency

Complementary Plastic Surgery and Non-surgical Procedures

Many of the presentations focused on choosing the best methods to get the best and most predictable results, in the safest manner possible. The blending of surgical and non-surgical techniques was stressed. There are obvious advantages to non-surgical procedures, but they cannot do what surgery can do.

Vancouver – Great City, Great Food

The meeting is winding down today, but it will be hard to leave. Vancouver is a beautiful city, and the weather has been more than cooperative. Best meal of the trip was had at the Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Oru. The stunning view of Coal Harbour and the North Shore Mountain Range was dwarfed by Chef Darren Brown’s off-the-menu fresh seafood spectacular with local coho salmon and sablefish. Thank you Chef. And if you happen to visit during the short spot prawn season, be sure to try them fresh. They’re sweet.
