I just got back from the 2019 American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) meeting at the New Orleans Convention Center, and I’m excited to share my experience as a first-time attendee. It was a very special opportunity to attend ASAPS this year because facial plastic surgeons are normally not invited.

An exception was made because I was the faculty for a new training in the educational component of the meeting. We shared my experience of going from near bankruptcy to over $4.5 million in cosmetic revenue with one provider and no insurance.
