Toronto Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank Lista Featured in "Plastic Surgery Practice" Magazine

November 16, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Dr. Frank Lista, a well-known Toronto plastic surgeon, is the topic of the cover story of the November 2011 issue of "Plastic Surgery Practice" ("PSP"), a leading plastic surgery trade publication. With a readership of 12,000, "PSP" provides plastic surgeons with emerging information on new products and technologies, practice-management trends and clinical innovations. Dr. Lista is proud to featured in this highly respected publication.

The article, entitled "Northern Neighbor" and authored by freelance health writer Denise Mann, begins with a summary of Dr. Lista's medical mission to Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that struck that island nation in January 2010. Arriving less than one month after the disaster, Dr. Lista and his team performed more than 35 reconstructive procedures in less-than-ideal operating room conditions. He and his team returned home with inspiring stories of heroism among the locals and a feeling of gratitude for having been allows to serve them.

The article then goes on to offer a sampling of some of Dr. Lista's views on various plastic surgery topics. Breast augmentation is a major focus of Dr. Lista's practice, and he believes that the moratorium on silicone-gel implants that lasted from 1992 to 2000 in Canada and from 1992 to 2006 in the United States did a disservice to both patients and surgeons by creating the false impressions that the implants were unsafe. Dr. Lista also criticizes the tendency of some surgeons and patients to believe there is an "ideal" implant that is best for all patients. Rather, he prefers a more individualized approach in which the patient is matched with the type of implant that will create the best aesthetic results for her particular body type and appearance goals.
