PROVIDENCE, RI, Apr 24, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — In preparation for the upcoming annual conference of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Dr. Patrick Sullivan, a plastic surgeon in Rhode Island, has announced he will be lecturing on several topics including facial rejuvenation and eyelid surgery. Looking forward to the 45th annual installment of The Aesthetic Meeting, Dr. Sullivan says he is excited and honored to participate in the events and hopes to inspire the future of cosmetic surgery towards the safest and most effective techniques and technology for the betterment of patient care and patient results. He says through speaking presentations on eyelid and forehead rejuvenation as well as volumizing lower lid eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), he aims to educate and inform attendees about his experience in enhancing facial aesthetics and how to create a very natural appearing result. This especially helps people who say they are being told they “look tired” when they are not.
At his Providence, RI plastic surgery practice, Dr. Sullivan performs a number of cosmetic treatments ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction to facelifts and non-surgical facial enhancements. As an ASAPS member, he also serves on faculty at Brown University’s School of Medicine, teaching students advanced techniques in plastic surgery. Dr. Sullivan says the ASAPS aesthetic meeting provides him the opportunity to share his experience and expertise in facial rejuvenation with some of the world’s most skilled and reputable surgeons. He says his objective is to share his experience and techniques on how to take away bags and circles from under the eyes and give a beautiful natural enhancement, adding that the course he teaches on face and neck lifts is to show how jowls and turkey necks can be taken away and leave the person with an enhanced appearance that does not look surgical or operated.
The ASAPS Aesthetic Meeting 2012 will be held at the Vancouver Convention Center May 3 through May 8 and will feature over 200 technical and scientific exhibits, including hands-on cadaver workshops and live demonstrations. Dr. Sullivan says his lectures on eyelid surgery and facial rejuvenation should provide attendees with a detailed and unique perspective on surgical techniques and how to take away that tired look to produce a very refreshed natural appearance. He says his objective is to help promote the safe practice of cosmetic enhancements and improve the quality of results by furthering the field of aesthetic surgery.
Dr. Sullivan adds that participation in events like the ASAPS annual meeting are an important part of a doctor’s commitment to continued education and the satisfaction of their patients. Whether they are performing a breast augmentation or a facelift, he says surgeons can benefit immensely from keeping up-to-date with the latest in plastic surgery techniques and technology. Dr. Sullivan says he is proud to be a part of the upcoming ASAPS meeting and hopes every person in attendance can come away with a renewed vigor for pursuing the highest quality patient care and results.
