New You Mag Beats the Odds to Celebrate 1st Anniversary

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - December 8, 2010) - The combination of a punishing recession and the advancement of digital media has dealt a severe blow to print media, felling even venerated publications like Gourmet Magazine. Surprisingly, a new Miami-based magazine has not just survived its first year, but garnered a Folio nomination in the process.

According to New You publisher Peter Mansfield, "While other publications have gone under, we've proven there's still an audience for the right magazine. Business is, in fact, booming."

New You is the only U.S.-based magazine devoted exclusively to cosmetic surgery. Designed to educate consumers about the latest and safest transformative procedures, and written from the point of view of real patients, real doctors and real results, "our mission," says Editor-in-Chief J.P. Faber, "is to remove any remaining taboos about cosmetic surgery. In fact, advances in cosmetic procedures allow everyone to improve their appearance in a natural, safe way. They feel better about themselves, and that translates into self-confidence and greater self-fulfillment. Frankly, during hard times, people have an even greater desire to look and feel as good as they can."

A quarterly publication, New You was launched with a Spring edition in March 2010. Its Winter edition was released Dec. 1. With a circulation of over 250,000, New You is distributed nationwide via newsstands and in the waiting rooms of members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. 

New You is currently a finalist in the national Folio awards for Best Single Article in a Women's Fashion/Lifestyle Magazine, along with Marie Claire and Family Circle. "We are very pleased to have received such a prestigious nomination," says Mansfield. "It shows there is still room for a new publication that meets the demand of the public. In our case, it's about readers who want to know how to transform themselves."
