HistoryEdit

Aesthetic Surgery Journal evolved from an earlier publication that focused primarily on association news for the plastic surgeon membership of ASAPS and gradually grew to incorporate articles of clinical interest in aesthetic surgery. From 1988 through 1994, this newsletter was published three times per year and called Aesthetic Surgery. Beginning in 1995, with an additional issue per year, the name was changed to Aesthetic Surgery Quarterly. It was not until 1996, when ASAPS entered into a publishing agreement with Mosby, that a significant portion of this periodical was designated as the "Clinical Journal" devoted to peer-reviewed original articles. Beginning in January 1997, publication was increased to six issues per year, and the name was changed to Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

The following persons have been editors-in-chief (since 1997, when the publication became Aesthetic Surgery Journal):

  • Robert W. Bernard (founding editor, 1997)
  • Stanley A. Klatsky (1998-2008)
  • Foad Nahai (2009–present)
