ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL--(Marketwired - October 03, 2013) - In one week, an estimated 4,500 attendees will descend upon San Diego for the industry's largest aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery educational and networking event: Plastic Surgery The Meeting.

Partnering with ASPS provides unprecedented opportunities to communicate and engage with aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons from around the world.

"MTF's support reinforces the impact that plastic surgery can have on people's lives.

We recognize the importance of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and the impact these procedures can have on a patient's quality of life. MTF has enjoyed a strong partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons over the past year and this sponsorship further solidifies our commitment to this specialty," said Bruce Stroever, CEO, MTF.
