Expanding the scope of the Journal of Aesthetic Nursing in 2023

02 May 2023
Volume 12 · Issue 4

The field of aesthetic nursing is vast. A common first impression is that aesthetic nurses primarily work with lots of Botulinum toxin, rhinoplasties, and facelifts. While it is true that certain surgeries or treatments are more common than others, the field in itself is incredibly diverse and there are always new areas of aesthetic medicine to explore.

Therefore, as editor, I am excited at the thought of expanding the scope of our journal and covering some areas of aesthetic practice that are less discussed in popular media or scholarship.

In this issue, healthcare writer Francesca Ramadan provides clinical perspectives on mastopexy (more commonly known as breast lift surgery), and integrative psychologist Kimberley Cairns delves deeply into stressors among aesthetic patients. You will read about an inspiring case study of Nurse Chelsea Sharp, where she talks about her successful case of using Botulinum toxin with a patient who had complicated pre-existing medical conditions. This is followed by an overview and critique of transgender surgeries, and a thought-provoking interview with Ange La Furcia, Miss International Queen Colombia 2023 and doctoral trans scholar at the University of Cambridge.
