Doreen Wu (00:00):
Welcome to another episode of Park Avenue Plastic Surgery Class, the podcast where we explore controversies and breaking issues in plastic surgery. I’m your co-host, Doreen Wu. I’m excited to be here with Dr. Lawrence Bass, Park Avenue plastic surgeon, educator, and technology innovator. The title of today’s episode is “Podcast Forecast: Overview of Upcoming Plastic Surgery Classes.” We are a few weeks into a new year. I, for one, am looking forward to great new things. And nowhere is that more true than at this podcast Park Avenue Plastic Surgery Class. Dr. Bass, can you give us an idea of what our listeners can expect in 2023?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (00:38):
We’re going to have a lot of interesting content. I’ll continue to discuss topics in all areas of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. We will have series of episodes on how devices integrate into aesthetic care and what the hot new devices are.
Doreen Wu (00:58):
We’ve had some really fascinating guest experts come on to the podcast and share their insights and expertise. Is that still part of the plan?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (01:05):
Yes. I’ll continue to look for people who are expert and authoritative to discuss specific aspects of clinical plastic surgery and particular areas where change is taking place or where new advancements are on the horizon.
Doreen Wu (01:22):
That all sounds great. What about hearing from the corporate world, perhaps industry experts, entrepreneurs, and inventors who are shaping the future of aesthetics?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (01:31):
Yes. We haven’t had many corporate guests, but that is where a lot of technology innovation is taking place. So the podcast will try to tap into that where we can find good opportunities to present non-commercial content and perspective.
Doreen Wu (01:50):
And at the very start of the episode, you mentioned that we will be introducing a new series. What other new series can we expect?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (01:58):
My practice is centered around facial rejuvenation, incorporating all of the key surgical and nonsurgical options available. So one of the series we’re going to run is called Decades of Face, where we look at the different aging changes in treatment approaches broken down roughly by your current decade of age.
Doreen Wu (02:24):
Why is it so important to split this out by age?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (02:27):
Well, you know, a given decade of life, there’s individual variation, but it likely tells you about things that are very close to where you are in terms of aging changes. And even if you are aging a little slower or a little faster, it shows you the expected progression on this one way track from younger to older. A lot of what happens in marketing and message about aesthetic services is sort of one size fits all marketing. It’s focused on the industry centered demographic, which is someone maybe their mid thirties to mid forties or maybe even a little younger than that. The problem is you might be 45 or 55 or 75 and you’re hearing that message and it sounds a lot like it’s for you when in fact it may not really be central to how you should look at your aesthetic services. So for this reason, we’re breaking out the specific focus and specific orientation for each decade, and everyone’s going to want to hear what’s going on in their decade of life. But it’s probably best to listen to all of these episodes because that will give you a better understanding of the progression as we age and the options at each stage. You can see what you might have missed out on earlier in the aging process and what’s coming in the future.
Doreen Wu (04:16):
And that’s a really great point that you brought up there. Listening to all of these episodes really gives you the full picture of the different decades and allows you to understand that progression, as you said, of what happens as we age. And it could probably set us up for success and may even save us some headaches down the road. So Dr. Bass, any other series in the works?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (04:37):
We’re looking at the podcast at having multiple guest experts give their individual approach or individual perspective, for example, on which device works best in their hands. And we might also have a series looking at different parts of the country and the world and what is trending in plastic surgery in those locations.
Doreen Wu (05:03):
Like the Park Avenue versus Rodeo Drive episode.
Dr. Lawrence Bass (05:06):
Doreen Wu (05:08):
And for those who tune into our podcast to stay up to date on the very latest in plastic surgery, fear not, we will likely continue to include content on new product introductions, news items, and regulatory changes that might be important to our listeners. Right?
Dr. Lawrence Bass (05:22):
Absolutely. If something happens in the plastic surgery world, we want you to know about it soonest.
Doreen Wu (05:29):
