Medical Turf Wars: Plastic Surgeons Clash With Other Doctors About Who Can Perform Liposuction And Tummy Tucks
By Amy Nordrum @amynordrum email@example.com
A state-by-state battle is underway within the medical profession over who has the right to perform breast implants and facelifts. Plastic surgeons shudder when they see other surgeons offer cosmetic procedures to patients -- services that plastic surgeons say only they are qualified to perform.
More women are expressing interest in plastic surgery to restore a more youthful figure after having children. An update on combined procedures for postpartum body contouring -- addressing the abdomen, breasts, and other problem areas -- is presented in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
I joined the CACS for education and camaraderie. I have met wonderful colleagues and appreciate learning from my mentors. I now belong because we are at a crossroads. Avaricious third parties are trying to limit our ability to practice our specialty of Cosmetic Surgery through legislation. The CACS is our only political advocate to protect our rights as Cosmetic Surgeons. Thank you CACS!
I am very pleased to be a member of the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. I thank the Academy for inviting me to speak at the 18th annual Meeting in Newport Beach on October 30, 2016. It was truly a fantastic opportunity to learn from the very best most experienced surgeons. For me it is also a good way to stay at the cutting edge of the latest advances in our field. I enjoy meeting new members just starting a cosmetic surgery practice as much as I enjoy reconnecting with old friends. I admire and have the highest respect for those surgeons who have dedicated themselves to lead this organization, especially, Dr. Haiavy, Dr. Shumway and Dr. Walter Tom. This organization has aggressively promoted and defended the field of cosmetic surgery in California. I believe that all cosmetic surgeons should be members and participate in order to strengthen our field and be able to practice cosmetic surgery with safety and equality.
The CACS provides for me a uniquely good forum to improve cosmetic outcomes and remain at the forefront of cosmetic medicine. At the same time, through the CACS, I have formed enjoyable and beneficial professional relationships with physicians who share my interests in cosmetic medicine. I now communicate regularly with physicians who are very like-minded, comparing notes, discussing procedures, etc. The CACS is the one professional organization focused on cosmetic medicine in the state that leads the world in consumer interest in cosmetic procedures. It is uniquely positioned to not only advocate for cosmetic medicine, but to be the focal point for the accumulation of new information on cosmetic procedures. The California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery works for me as a primary source of information, collegiality, and professional support for my cosmetic medicine practice. Not only for my benefit, but for yours too, I would love to see even more like-minded professionals become integral elements of our organization.
I neither live in California, nor have initial boarding in a surgical specialty, yet I’ve found a “home” with the CACS. It is an honor to belong to an organization that is all about educating members of all backgrounds in true Webster fashion, peer-to-peer and friend-to-friend.
The CACS is the Premier California Organization representing & educating Cosmetic Surgeons from many specialties! CACS membership is important to both Cosmetic Physicians & patients who benefit from a doctor who emphasizes cosmetic procedures in their practice. The CACS is a powerful force for teaching and has many American and International experts eager to instruct our members on the best cosmetic techniques available today. Join the CACS now because we are your political & instructional society representing Cosmetic Surgery worldwide!
I have found no better place to belong than the CACS. The mentors and experienced surgeons I have encountered and trained with, have gone over and above to make sure I got it. I was met with great hospitality, a desire to teach and advance my practice. The mentorship, training, friendship and sense of belonging to a reputable organization are tremendous.
As a Diplomate of ABCS and as the current president of the Texas Cosmetic Surgery Society, I know how important it is to belong and participate in an organization that truly represents the unique needs and values of cosmetic surgeons at the State level. I have always benefitted from the tremendous learning opportunities and friendships that I have developed through the CACS.
