The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) has acquired JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery and has selected Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. as the new publisher of the journal. The journal will now be published under the new title of Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine, starting in January 2020. Bringing the journal under the formal oversight of the AAFPRS will allow the Academy to strategically build off of 21 years of quality collaboration between the AAFPRS and the JAMA Network, and enable the AAFPRS to further advance its cultivation and presentation of on-target content to better reflect and improve all aspects, both surgical and nonsurgical, of the specialty of facial plastic surgery.
The journal also adds a dynamic component to Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.’s renowned portfolio of peer-reviewed journals in clinical medicine and biomedical research, including the Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques, Photobiomodulation, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, and Thyroid. Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine will continue to be published bimonthly in print and online formats, with open access options.
Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine (formerly JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery) is a multispecialty peer-reviewed journal with a key mission to provide facial plastic surgeons the most accurate and innovative information available to enhance their patients’ quality of life.

The journal is the official publication for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and the International Federation of Facial Plastic Surgery Societies are both formal affiliated organisations, as well. The journal has an Impact Factor of 3.056, one of the highest in the disciplines of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and the highest among facial plastic surgery journals.
