The Aesthetic Society has released four new episodes of their original docuseries ‘Beyond the Before & After.’ This original docuseries by The Aesthetic Society continues to provide a platform for real patients to tell their individual journeys of how aesthetic plastic surgery helped transform their lives, not just physically, but emotionally.

“At The Aesthetic Society we believe every patient has a unique story that deserves to be told and ‘Beyond the Before & After’ gives patients a platform to share how aesthetic surgery impacts their lives,” says Jennifer Walden, MD, president of The Aesthetic Society. “Often, patients seek aesthetic surgery because they want their external appearance to match how they feel inside, and these stories illuminate each personal journey. These patient stories are both powerful and inspiring.”

“Aesthetic surgery can be life-changing for how people feel about themselves,” adds Kent K. Higdon, MD, communications commissioner of The Aesthetic Society. “Our film series shines a light on the aesthetic goals patients seek—sometimes subtle goals that often have a significant emotional impact on their lives.”

The goal of The Aesthetic Society is to continue to reveal the true stories behind aesthetic plastic surgery and the positive influence it can have on people’s lives, beyond the superficial, officials say.

“The decision to undergo an aesthetic procedure is a highly personal one and having a trusted relationship between patient and plastic surgeon can make the surgical experience incredibly empowering,” says Carrie Strom, president of Global Allergan Aesthetics and senior vice president of AbbVie. “We are proud to continue to sponsor The Aesthetic Society with their effort to portray these real-life stories of patients pursuing positive changes in their lives.”
