Help ASERF Receive a Generous Donation from SENTÉ® Print

The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) is happy to announce that for the second year in a row, SENTÉ® is aiming to make a donation to support aesthetic surgery research.

SENTÉ®, an aesthetic company that delivers unique, novel and science-based skincare products, wants to give back in a way which the entire specialty will reap benefits.

From Saturday, May 18 through Monday, May 20 at The Aesthetic Meeting 2019 in New Orleans, SENTÉ® will make a $100 donation to ASAERF for each Meeting attendee who stops by booth 320 in The Aesthetic Marketplace and has their badge scanned, with the goal of raising $5,000.

ASERF appreciates all of industry’s contributions to its programs and the reciprocal support between the Foundation and its corporate supporters is essential for long-term success.

To help ASERF receive the largest donation possible, please stop by SENTÉ® booth #320 and have your badge scanned. Your simple visit can make a major impact on aesthetic surgery research.

ASERF’s mission is to identify and pursue those issues relevant to advancing the safety and effectiveness of aesthetic medicine through independent, unbiased, directed research and groundbreaking education.

Renowned Plastic Surgery Icon Dr. Robert Singer to Receive the ASERF 2019 Career Achievement Award Print

The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) is proud to announce that Dr. Robert Singer will be awarded the 2019 ASERF Career Achievement Award on Sunday, May 19 in New Orleans during The Aesthetic Meeting 2019.

Dr. Singer was not just a founding member of ASERF, he and Dr. Simon Fredricks were single-handedly responsible for having the vision to establish the Foundation and mapped out its mission, philosophy and organizational structure. He served as President of ASERF from 2001 to 2004 and is member of the exclusive President’s Circle of donors. Dr. Singer also served as President of The Aesthetic Society (1995 -1996) and is a long-time contributor to the strategic and educational efforts of both organizations.

An internationally renowned, board-certified plastic surgeon who authored approximately 350 scientific articles over the last 40 years, Dr. Singer is a sought-after lecturer to surgical organizations both domestically and abroad. He has served as Chief of Plastic Surgery and Vice-Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla and has the position of Clinical Professor of Surgery (Plastic) at the University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Singer’s greatest impact to the specialty has been through his roles as educator, ambassador and mentor. Few surgeons are as respected and held in high esteem by their peers as this iconic surgeon.

To honor Dr. Singer and his distinguished legacy, please join us in making a tax-deductible contribution to ASERF which will be used to fund valuable aesthetic plastic surgery research. In the last two years alone, ASERF has given more than $700,000 in funds to back a multitude of studies that are aligned with its mission of “advancing the safety and effectiveness of aesthetic medicine.” This level of success that Dr. Singer envisioned over 25 years ago would not be possible without the generous support of our Members and donors. You too can make your gift at ASERF’s donation page and even add a personal message to Dr. Singer in the Comments field.

Donate today to support ASERF and show your gratitude for Dr. Singer’s invaluable contributions to aesthetic plastic surgery.

The Aesthetic Surgery & Research Foundation (ASERF) is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, Tax ID #33-0613185. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. No goods or services will be received in return for your donation.  Please note that the first $200 is considered dues and is deductible as a business expense while any additional amount is considered a donation.

ALCL and Breast Reconstruction Patient Assistance Grants Still Available Print

Every October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month educates the public about the second most common cancer among women. Within the aesthetic plastic surgery specialty, many doctors have patients who have fought and defeated this devastating disease and are looking to recapture their quality of life by way of an “aesthetic breast reconstruction.”

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation reminds you that two patient assistance funds that are available to ASERF and ASAPS members nationwide: The Mollenkopf Aesthetic Breast Reconstruction Fund, which provides financial assistance to patients looking to complete their aesthetic breast reconstruction following breast cancer; and the BIA-ALCL Patient Assistance Fund for diagnosed patients who are uninsured or underinsured.  [Note: The BIA-ALCL Fund is also available to members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF) while the Mollenkopf Fund recently expanded to include the California Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS) membership.]

More than 60 Mollenkopf Fund grants of up to $5,000 each are available thanks to the generosity of Susan and Steve Mollenkopf, with matching funds by the Qualcomm Foundation. The BIA-ALCL Fund can award grants of up to $6,500 to patients who are diagnosed with ALCL following National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) treatment guidelines. This Fund is made possible by breast implant manufacturers Allergan, Mentor and Sientra.

To find out if you have a patient who is eligible for support from either Fund, download the Mollenkopf Fund grant application here, and the BIA-ALCL Fund request form here. Each form has detailed guidelines and criteria to review prior to starting the application process.
