Miss Mary O'Brien, President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), has launched a podcast called Knife to Life.

Miss O’Brien explains that the podcast is targeted at practitioners and will feature talks with key figures in plastic surgery and will talk about their life, career and the future of plastic surgery.

Guests on the podcast include Miss Ruth Waters, President Elect of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons and Mr Ash Mosahebi, Professor of Plastic Surgery.

On her decision to start the podcast, Miss O’Brien commented, “My initial intention is to use the podcast as a tool to communicate, collaborate and keep up morale amongst the plastic surgery community during this difficult period. I have found it inspirational listening to colleagues that I respect and wanted to share those conversations with a wider audience. It's an authentic account of what life as a plastic surgeon is really like and the different paths that can be pursued within this amazing career."
