The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) is the world’s leading professional body for board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeons. Founded in 1970, ISAPS membership includes the world’s best known and respected reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgeons in over 100 countries on every continent reflecting the true international mission of the organization. The Society was founded to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and knowledge for the advancement of aesthetic plastic surgery. In addition, ISAPS has become the gold standard for providing continuing education to its members in new procedures, techniques and options in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. ISAPS surgeons are members of their national societies of plastic surgery and, in this regard, ISAPS serves as an important bridge among many different professional societies and organizations.
