Drumroll, please….

It’s with great pride and pleasure that I officially introduce Plastic Surgery Practice’s new editorial advisory board. Each doctor was handpicked (by me) based on their experience, reputation, contributions to the field of plastic surgery and PSP, as well as their willingness to collaborate with their multispecialty colleagues for the good of patients.

I made a wish list, and I am thrilled to say that my wishes have come true.

Without further adieu, meet our new editorial advisory board members:

Angelo Cuzalina, MD, DDS, is the 2011 president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). His practice, Tulsa Surgical Arts, is based in Oklahoma.

I’m also pleased to welcome Julius Few, MD, FACS, founder of The Few Institute for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Chicago and an American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) board member.

Robert Kotler, MD, FACS, is a facial plastic surgery specialist in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. He is a blogger and author, and his recently retired cosmetic surgery blog on WebMD was a must-read for anyone interested in this dynamic field. Same is true for his book, Secrets of a Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgeon: The Expert’s Guide to Safe, Successful Surgery.

Readers will be very familiar with Joseph Niamtu III, DMD, who specializes in facial aesthetics in Midlothian, Virginia. He has done so much for the PSP brand that it would be hard to list it all in this short blurb. Simply put, he is one of the greats, and we are lucky to have him.

Steven Pearlman, MD, FACS, is one of the top facial plastic surgeons in New York City. He is a past president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

PSP readers will also recognize Michael J. Sacopulos, JD, the CEO of Medical Risk Institute (MRI), a firm formed exclusively to provide proactive counsel to the health care community. His practice is based in Terre Haute, Indiana, and he is the only nonphysician on our board. As our resident legal eagle, he routinely covers such topics as malpractice, the pitfalls of leasing, and online reputation management for the PSP brand.

Neil Sadick, MD, FAAD, FAACS, is a leading New York-based dermatologist, with offices in Manhattan and Great Neck. He is also a clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, president of the Cosmetic Surgery Foundation, member of the Board of Examiners for the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, and global medical advisor for Christian Dior Beauty, to name just a few of his professional achievements

One new board member who needs no introduction is W. Grant Stevens, MD, a plastic surgeon in Marina del Rey, California. Everyone knows him! He is such a presence at major meetings and media events that it often seems that there is more than one W. Grant Stevens.

Jennifer Walden, MD, is a plastic surgeon in Austin, Texas. In the industry she was known as one to watch when she first started out, and she has proven everyone right. But she is more than just a prominent plastic surgeon. Walden is also a single mom. She brings a lot to the table, including the female perspective.

I am thrilled that S. Randolph Waldman, MD, a facial plastic surgeon in Lexington, Kentucky, will continue to serve on the editorial advisory board. Each summer, his multispecialty Vegas Cosmetic Surgery meeting brings together thought leaders from the various disciplines and allows them to learn from one another.

Julie Ann Woodward, MD, is an oculoplastic surgeon at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Her practice is an academic one, and she prefers it that way. She has left her mark as a teacher, and her protocols are widely quoted. Check out this month’s “10 Things” on page 38 to learn more about her!

Last, but not least, Anthony S. Youn, MD, FACS, is a plastic surgeon in
Troy, Michigan. He is a media darling and appears regularly on a host of
TV shows that feature the latest plastic surgery trends.

The new board’s energy and insights will help take the Plastic Surgery Practice brand to the next level. I couldn’t be happier! Looking forward to a great 2013.
