Live-Surgery & Scientific Program

Dear Colleagues,

I want to thank you all for beeing our guest in Bremen during the 1. SOAP-Meeting.

It was fantastic to welcome over 100 surgeries out of thirteen different countries from all over the world.

Especially I want to thank all my colleagues for sharing their experience and dominant advanced techniques for Body Sculpting. We learned from fascinating operations and interesting presentations about the latest trends and developements and I thank all attendees for the vivid and controversial discussions.

I hope you have used the SOAP-Meeting as an efficient platform to expand your network, exchanged experiences and took new impulses in personal discussions and meetings with plastic surgeons.

We are looking forward meeting you again at the 2. SOAP Meeting from 21-23. February, 2019.

Enjoy here some impressions from our Congress.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Dr. C. Can Cedidi
Congress President

The “German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons” (DGPRÄC) is officially representing more than 1700 German Plastic surgeons both nationally and internationally. Founded in 1968 the society is officially representing German Plastic Surgery in politics and science. Only surgeons holding the German title “Specialist for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery” or “Specialist for Plastic Surgery” are qualified for membership. Doctors in training may apply for “associate membership”. The DGPRÄC organises an annual congress and offers more than 80 hands-on workshops free of charge to their associate members. More information about DGPRÄC can be found here: www.dgpraec.de


„Together Everybody Achieves More“. This is the concept of about 4,000 higly selected plastic surgeons all over the world that gathered around an idea that began  more than 4 years back: The Interactive Plastic Surgery Network „IPSN“. IPSN is the first interactive & international plastic surgery online community. It‘s not only concerned for memberships,  meetings, medical papers and workshops, but has the unique edge of being an around the clock, 24 hrs ready to help the plastic surgeons chose the best solution for their patients in all kinds of problematic cases with the maximum benefit of consultation and gaining different experiences from all over the world. Sharing the SENIORS experiences plus giving the opportunity for the JUNIORS innovations is the real equation of developing the Art of Plastic Surgery. Find more about us under www.ipsnetwork.net
