Plastic surgery industry leaders and analysts will offer the latest data regarding trends, innovations, and forecasts for the aesthetic plastic surgery market on Monday, October 9, in San Francisco at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Industry Forum.

“Our firm has closely tracked data on the aesthetic industry for the past 10 years, and we believe the global market now exceeds $30 billion, with a sustainable compound annual growth rate in the range of 25%,” says Michael Moretti, editor of the Aesthetic Buyer’s Guide, who will moderate the forum. “This business growth opportunity is attracting major pharmaceutical companies, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other investors to the aesthetic procedure space. We can expect to see significant technology innovation as well as increased merger and acquisition activity as new players develop the dynamic aesthetic market on a global basis.”

The business forum will feature CEO’s of leading companies in the industry, opinion leaders, market researchers, and financial analysts. Presenters will provide stock analysis, company visions, and procedural statistics on topics including breast implants, facial fillers, neurotoxins, tissue engineering, and body shaping.
