Dr. Michael Will, AACS President

Entering a Season of Thanksgiving -
And less than eight weeks from our Annual Scientific Meeting

Thanksgiving seems to have approached rather quickly again this year, but true to form, it comes at a time when we could all use a reminder to step back from the worries and stress, and simply be thankful. I will always be thankful for the support and love I receive from my friends and family, the fulfillment I find in my career, and the joy I have found during my time with the Academy, especially during this past year of such positive change. With a new strategic plan and mission, the Academy now has a clear direction and path forward. I’m thankful to have had a front-row seat and active role in steering the Academy in the right direction.


In an effort to continue moving the Academy forward, many of you have registered and started making your travel plans for our Annual Scientific Meeting, coming up in just two months, January 14-16, in Hollywood, Florida. If you have not already registered, I strongly encourage you to do so before time gets away from you during this holiday season. I was pleased to see such a large turnout at last year’s conference in New Orleans and cannot wait for what this next conference holds. In response to the comments and suggestions made after last year’s conference, the Academy has made tweaks and adjustments to make this next meeting experience even better, including:



Keep in mind that this conference is not just for the cosmetic surgeon. The program was shaped with the entire cosmetic surgery team in mind, including office personnel. Invite your team members along for the opportunity to improve your practice as a whole. Aside from the top-notch education, the meeting will be set on the beautiful beaches of South Florida, providing a pleasant winter escape for those of us who will be craving a warm breeze and a little sunshine. Be sure to complete registration by December 15 to save $100 on each registration fee.

I implore you to take time this week to truly reflect on the things you are thankful for and enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday with those you love. I look forward to bringing you more Academy updates throughout the next couple months.
