The PSF Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Research Grant is intended to support plastic surgeons in pursuing research in aesthetic/cosmetic plastic surgery. Eligible applicants include surgeons at all stages of their careers including residents, fellows, junior faculty and advanced academicians, as well as early career to advanced practitioners in a variety of settings including private, employed, group and academic practice physicians.

Proposals should address aesthetic/cosmetic research topics and include focused research questions. The goals of the research may range from pilot projects to collect preliminary data to support larger future grant proposals, up to more advanced research questions that may lead to findings and results to have a more immediate impact on patient care.
