Philadelphia, PA, July 31, 2018 – Elsevier, the global information analytics business specializing in science and health, and part of RELX Group, today announced the launch of a new annual Continuity series, titled Advances in Cosmetic Surgery, which offers articles that bring the best current practice from the preeminent practitioners in plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, cosmetic dermatology, and oculoplastic surgery.
Advances in Cosmetic Surgery is the newest addition to the Elsevier Advances family. It continues the tradition of publishing original articles on current advances and breakthroughs within a select specialty.
“Advances in Cosmetic Surgery provides practicing cosmetic surgeons with an in-depth look at clinical advancements in the four core specialties—plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and cosmetic dermatology— and allows practitioners, educators, and researchers to continuously and comprehensively keep pace with this ever-evolving specialty,” said Jessica McCool, Senior Clinics Editor for Continuity, Elsevier.
Members of the distinguished editorial board – Gregory H. Branham, MD, Jeffrey S. Dover, MD, FRCPC, Heather J. Furnas, MD, Marissa M.J. Tenenbaum, MD, and Allan E. Wulc, MD, FACS – have brought together the leading experts to discuss trending cosmetic surgery topics, such as filler complications, non-surgical body contouring, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, radiofrequency with microneedling, platelet rich plasma, and much more. In addition to providing insightful overviews that bring concepts to a clinical level, many articles also include procedural videos that can be accessed through a subscription to the series.
In the latest survey results from the annual Global Aesthetic Survey, The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) stated that there was an overall increase of nine percent in surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures from 2016 to 2017. In 2017, there were over 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed, and that number is expected to increase in 2018. With the continued rise of the “selfie” and in turn, more self-awareness, patients are seeking ways to enhance their appearance now more than ever before.
“This specialty continues to flourish and trends continue to change,” McCool said. “Cosmetic surgeons need to stay abreast of the latest and most important advancements in this field, and Advances in Cosmetic Surgery can help them do that.”
