ATLANTA, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Amy Alderman will soon have her work placed in the spotlight—literally. The board certified plastic surgeon, who specializes in breast augmentation as part of her private practice at the Swan Center for Plastic Surgery in Alpharetta, will perform a live surgery demonstration at the 33rd Annual Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium, taking place January 20-22, 2017. The breast augmentation procedure will be telecast live to doctors around the world.
Dr. Alderman comments on being one of only four surgeons selected to perform a live surgery demonstration at the symposium: "It's a tremendous honor to be able to demonstrate my surgical approach to my peers, who represent some of the greatest minds in plastic surgery. The Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium is considered the premier conference on aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery in the United States, and I am excited to receive this unique opportunity."
Specifically, Dr. Alderman will perform a primary breast augmentation, placing breast implants for a patient who is receiving the surgery for the first time. As she performs surgery, Dr. Alderman will explain her technique and field questions from audience members in real time. The procedure will take place at Northside Hospital, from which it will be broadcast via closed circuit television to the Intercontinental Hotel, the conference site, as well as streamed online internationally.
About Dr. Amy Alderman, Distinguished Atlanta Breast Augmentation Surgeon & Leader in Research
Educating other plastic surgeons is familiar ground for Dr. Alderman, who served as Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery at the prestigious University of Michigan Health Systems residency training program for several years prior to joining the Swan Center in 2010.
Nationally recognized as an expert in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, Dr. Alderman is frequently invited to instruct at medical conferences and regularly serves as an examiner for the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She has published more than 70 articles, contributed to multiple medical textbooks, and received the Outstanding Achievement in Plastic Surgery Research award from the Plastic Surgery Foundation in 2014 for her research into improving surgical outcomes and women's access to reconstructive breast surgery.
She relates her passion for research and plastic surgery teaching experience to the upcoming symposium: "A robust framework of research and education is vital to sustain the highest standard of patient care in plastic surgery. Meetings like the Atlanta Breast Surgery Symposium—which allow us to collaborate and share our unique approaches to surgery, discuss each other's research, and learn from one another—help us grow as individual surgeons and advance the field as a whole, ultimately benefitting patients in terms of superior safety, enhanced recoveries, and beautiful aesthetic outcomes."
