Dear Colleagues:

We look forward to welcoming you to Miami and the 93rd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons. We are very pleased to be at the historic Eden Roc Hotel on Miami Beach for what we anticipate being an exceptionally good educational program and social event.

We had a record number of abstract submissions for presentations at this meeting, 494, representing approximately a 20% increase over the previous high. This affords us a selection among the very best papers available in Plastic Surgery today for your review and discussion.

The Eighth Annual Aesthetic Surgery Symposium will be held on the Saturday preceding Sunday’s Reconstructive Symposium and Opening Ceremonies. This outstanding full day educational event will feature nine in-depth technical presentations of 45 to 60 minutes duration by recognized experts. The curriculum will cover five facial topics (face, orbit, and nose) and four on the remaining body (breasts, torso, and limbs). Three of the faculty will present at the Symposium for the first time, while four return after a respite. Beyond the standard panel discussions with questions and answers, there will be two arenas this year for point-counterpoint debate, addressing three areas of current clinical controversy. The session on the orbit (featuring two plastic surgeons and one oculo-plastic surgeon) will contrast philosophies and technical approaches for volumization of the orbit, as well as support for the lower eyelid. The breast session will debate round versus shaped implants. This popular event will be of interest to surgeons-in-training, those recently out-of-training, and seasoned clinicians alike.
