"Part of our mission is to educate the public about the importance of selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon, what their credentials mean and provide patient safety information on cosmetic and aesthetic procedures," said Jack Fisher, MD, president of ASAPS. "We would not be able to fulfill our public education mission without the dedication of responsible journalists who understand and appreciate that the best kind of reporting succeeds in being creative and original while simultaneously providing accurate information to the public. On behalf of The Aesthetic Society, I congratulate the 2014 winners," he added.

Each year, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery honors journalists for their reporting on cosmetic plastic surgery.  Entries are accepted in six categories: broadcast news, broadcast feature, newspaper, magazine, internet and patient safety.

Janet St. James from WFAA-TV is the winner in the broadcast feature category for her piece, "Wrinkle-filler treatment comes with risks, eye surgeon cautions." The segment highlights the importance of selecting a trained and experienced physician to administer injectables.

ASAPS' 2014 Journalistic Achievement Award in the newspaper category goes to Sally Wadyka for her piece "The Debate Over Stem-cell Face-lifts" in the New York Times. This article explores the use of stem cells in aesthetic procedures. It includes The Aesthetic Society's position on stem cells and an interview with ASAPS spokesperson, Peter Rubin, MD.

This year's winner in the magazine category is Joanne Chen for her article "Under Your Skin" in the W Magazine.  The article provides procedural information on fillers and injectables, their pros and cons as well as insights from plastic surgeons including ASAPS spokesperson, Sydney Coleman, MD.

The internet category winner is Rachel Hayes for the YouBeauty.com article, "Botox for Beginners". This article provides an overview of what to expect when getting Botox and tips on finding a board-certified doctor to perform the procedure.

It also includes an interview with Michael Edwards, MD, incoming president of ASAPS.

"Entries in the ASAPS Journalistic Achievement Awards were judged based on a number of criteria including originality, accuracy of information, balanced reporting, and contribution to the public's realistic understanding of the risks and benefits of cosmetic surgery. These journalists have demonstrated authentic journalism in the aesthetic field of medicine," noted Daniel C. Mills, II, MD, ASAPS Communications Commissioner.
