A Letter from P'Fella

Meet your 4 new team members!

Hey Friends!

This month, thanks to your unwavering support, ThePlasticsFella is growing. I'm thrilled to introduce our expanded team, who are as passionate and dedicated as ever to uplift our mission together


Iโ€™m excited to share a heartwarming update that ushers in a new era for ThePlasticsFella. Your steadfast support has propelled us to a remarkable milestone. This month, I've welcomed three paid educational fellows and a paid Editor into our fold, each bringing their own passion and expertise.

So how is this possible? To have 4 paid employees.

Well, to put it simple. Thanks to you.

This expansion is a direct result of our community's support. Every subscription, every piece of feedback has been reinvested into our mission to provide a unique, independent educational experience. It's your trust that has allowed us to maintain our autonomy and focus solely on what matters mostโ€”enhancing your learning journey.

This past year alone, we've seen our user base grow by >60%, and our content library has nearly doubled in size. These milestones are a testament to the power of community support, and they motivate us to push the boundaries of what we can offer.

Over the next nine months, our new team aims to create over 200 pieces of new educational content, including:

  • Main Articles: Updated with the latest research and surgical advancements.
  • Clinical Cases: Expanded to cover a wider range of real-world scenarios.
  • Surgical Techniques: Enhanced with foundational & innovative procedures.
  • Student Version: tailored database to meet specific needs of students.
  • Flashcard Database: Updated for effective revision and memorization.

Behind the scenes access

If you want to follow this journey with the team, soon we'll be launching Behind the 'Fella - a new podcast offering a raw, behind-the-scenes look at our educational platform. Dive into how we shape our team, enhance clinical and non-clinical skills, and engage with top experts to deepen our understanding and spark creativity.




ยท Team Expansion: Welcomed three educational fellows and an Editor/Content Coordinator.
ยท Community Driven: Your support has directly fueled our growthโ€”40% increase in users, doubled content library.
ยท New Content: 200+ new articles, case studies, and more in the pipeline and a behind the scenes podcast.

Surgical Techniques will be coming soon!

Thanks to our new team, new educational tools are going to be added over the next few months! The goal is to curate a unique collection of surgical "recipes."

These step-by-step guides will simplify complex procedures into manageable, easy-to-follow instructions. I am also reaching out to you, our community, to hear what specific techniques you're eager to learn about. This collaborative approach ensures that our content is directly tailored to your needs and interests.

  2. Same day discharge post breast reconstruction (PRS, April 2024)
    Research on 14,387 patients shows that same-day discharge after breast reconstruction with tissue expanders is as safe as next-day discharge, reducing hospital costs and the risk of infection without increasing complications.
  3. DIEP vs PAP vs LAP (PRS, March 2024)
    The study compared DIEP, PAP, and LAP flaps and found no significant difference in patient satisfaction across the three methods, though LAP flaps were rated higher aesthetically in a direct comparison.
