Great New Consumer Resource on Plastic Surgery!

“Knowledge is a beautiful thing.”

That’s the tagline on the new consumer website from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Smart Beauty Guide. Designed to provide the most complete information available on cosmetic procedures, the new guide takes patients from the very first thought of a cosmetic intervention through the array of options available, and on to the anticipated recovery time for each procedure. As a board member of ASAPS, I’m proud to be able to share this resource with you.

The website has a clean design that’s easy to navigate and explore. Here’s what you’ll find in the Smart Beauty Guide:

  • General procedure information
  • Pros and cons of each procedure
  • Tips on selecting a surgeon
  • Aftercare and recovery
  • Average costs
  • Risks
  • Patient stories
  • Before-and-after photographs

The site isn’t just for women. Here, men will find a comprehensive guide to procedures that specifically addresses the unique aspects of cosmetic surgery for men.

Studies show that patients are more satisfied with the results of their procedures if they know what to expect. A one-stop source for cosmetic surgery research, Smart Beauty Guide brings together the best information available so that patients can make well- informed decisions. The information provided is trustworthy, as ASAPS is the world’s leading professional organization of board-certified plastic surgeons who focus on cosmetic procedures.

Part of the ASAPS’s mission is to promote public education, and our Smart Beauty Guide helps achieve that goal. Knowledge truly is beautiful!
