The Technology Innovation in Plastic Surgery (TIPS) conference was held last month and hosted by the Plastic Surgery Foundation, which is a research arm of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Each year cutting edge ideas for plastic surgery are presented at the conference – some of the procedures and technology are currently available, while others are in the research and development phase. Some of the topics discussed were: (1) Whether breast implants will become obsolete in the wake of stem cells and fat grafting; (2) Whether stem cells will play a role in breast reconstruction after cancer; (3) If there will be new techniques for treating wounds; (4) How stem cells can be used to erase wrinkles and restore volume to the aging face; (5) New Generation dermal fillers; and (6) non-invasive body contouring.
