The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) announced that it has acquired JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery and has selected Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. as the new publisher of the Journal, which will be published under the new title of Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine starting in January 2020. The collaboration between the AAFPRS and JAMA Network will enable the AAFPRS to further advance its cultivation and presentation of on-target content to better reflect and improve all aspects, both surgical and non-surgical facial plastic surgery.
Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine (formerly JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery) is the official publication for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, with a mission to provide facial plastic surgeons the most accurate and innovative information available to enhance their patients’ quality of life. The Journal works to promote the art and science of facial plastic surgery by publishing significant peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the head and neck, promote the education and contributions of physicians worldwide, and provide a forum to present important and relevant issues in ethics and public policy. “By moving our official peer-reviewed journal publication within the formal structure and oversight of the AAFPRS, we are now better positioned to be even more nimble, engaging, and responsive to the needs of the field, while further advancing the diffusion of surgical and non-surgical innovations within our specialty,” says Steve Jurich, executive vice president and CEO of the AAFPRS.
