The “Hot Topics” sessions at the Society’s Annual Meeting are a forum where the newest techniques and technologies are discussed and debated by board-certified plastic surgeons. As a driving force behind these presentations, Dr. Singer’s contributions are now recognized through The Robert Singer Award for Best Hot Topics Presentation. The first ”Singer Award” was presented to Steven Teitelbaum, MD, of Santa Monica, CA at The Aesthetic Meeting 2013 in New York City where it became a permanent part of the Society’s nomenclature and traditions.
“Dr. Singer has raised the bar for all of us in so many areas, including clinical excellence, patient safety and innovative procedures,” says Jack Fisher, MD, ASAPS President. “I can think of no more deserving individual to receive this kind of recognition.”
