Top Story

More Research Needed on Antiaging Products
A recent study underscores the need for much greater study of—and public education on—the effectiveness of over-the-counter (OTC) antiaging products. The study was led by Timothy A. Miller, MD, chief of plastic surgery at UCLA and published in the July/August 2007 issue of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). It confirms that consumer expectations of OTC antiaging creams must be managed.

Research

AMA Finds Charity Care Not Tied to Faith Beliefs
Although religious doctors are more likely to view their medical careers as a calling compared to their nonreligious peers, a new study by the American Medical Association (AMA) found that physicians who consider themselves religious are no more likely to care for the poor than those who have no religious affiliation. The findings are among a growing body of research exploring physicians' link between medicine and religion.


Company News

Artes Medical Reports Second-Quarter Financials
On August 13, Artes Medical announced financial results for the second quarter, ending June 30, 2007. Total revenues for the company were $4.2 million for the first 6 months of the year. Much of the success is attributed to ArteFill, which had sales of $3.5 million and technology license revenues of $732,000.


Associations

Winter in London
The 2007 Winter Scientific Meeting for the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons in London from December 5–7. In October, the association will host two separate meetings, both of which are noteworthy for plastic surgeons.


Trends

Plastic Surgery as Status Symbol
Branding seems to have reached into the realm of plastic surgery. It wasn't long ago that plastic surgery patients did their best to hide the fact that they had elective aesthetic surgery. In England, however, there seems to have been a dramatic change in attitudes where aesthetic surgery has become something many women are happy to flaunt. The key is their plastic surgeon's name recognition.

Many Aussies Consider Aesthetic Surgery
According to a new independent survey, more than half of Australians are thinking about going under the knife or having their face injected with dermal fillers in order to look better. The survey by News.com.au and research company CoreData found 60.8% of 2,211 respondents have thought about having plastic surgery, while 58.5% have considered nonsurgical procedures such as wrinkle treatments and laser hair removal.


Media

Beverly Hills Education
For years, Lloyd Krieger, MD, medical director of Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, has enjoyed a second career as a freelance writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Barron's. The surgeon has always had the goal of educating prospective plastic surgery patients, but now hes spearheading a project to get his articles in front of as many physician and patient eyes as possible.

iPhone Thumb Surgery Hoax
Recently, several Web sites ran a story about a man who surgically altered his thumbs to improve his use of Apple's new iPhone. Now, it has been confirmed that the unbelievable story was unbelievable for a reason—it was a hoax. Still, when it first came to light, even the venerable MacDailyNews failed to recognize it as nonsense.


Products

Circadia's Vitamin C Reversal Serum A
Can a simple, clear gel tighten skin and turn back the hands of time? According to manufacturer Circadia, the company's Vitamin C Reversal Serum A is a gentle gel that may be used after microdermabrasion and should be easily tolerated around the eye area.

Illuminize Peel
When patients are considering a chemical peel but are wary of the treatment's intensity, one alternative is the new Illuminize Peel, indicated for photodamaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and pigmentary irregularities.
