How to Solve Facial Ageing Problems
As the President of the Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, I have the pleasure of interfacing with some of my profession’s most experienced and innovative facial plastic surgeons. Our collective goal as AAFPS members is to focus on surgery of the face, head, and neck, setting high professional and ethical standards for our peers and ourselves.
In addition to our work supporting our members’ professional goals, the AAFPRS (American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons) also looks after the interest of consumers. They provide free information and a list of qualified facial plastic surgeons in the USAon the AAFPRS website.
In this post, I’d like to invite you to explore the intricacies of the ageing face with the help of our sister organisation in the U.S.
