In Memoriam:

It is with profound sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Dr. Wilson Ho, Plastic Surgeon and a cherished member of our esteemed Innovation Forum expert panel. Dr. Ho's visionary contributions to the field of aesthetic medicine have left an indelible mark on our community. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. 


In honoring Dr. Ho's memory, we reflect on his favorite quote by Steve Jobs: "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." Dr. Ho embodied this spirit, consistently inspiring us with his pioneering ideas and unwavering dedication to progress in the field.

We invite you to join us in commemorating Dr. Ho's life and work, celebrating the impact he has made on our community and the world of aesthetic medicine. 


May his innovative spirit continue to guide and inspire us all.
