A Letter from the President of ISAPS

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our website which addresses our three-fold mission of continually educating our members, accurately informing the public, and promoting patient safety.

We have greatly expanded the focus and content of our website to serve not only our members, but more importantly you as a patient interested in cosmetic surgery abroad. Here you will find explanations of most plastic surgery procedures and information to help you contact one or more of our members in 95 countries around the world.

Membership in ISAPS requires approval according to strict guidelines related to proper training and certification of the surgeon. You as a patient can be assured that a surgeon you choose who is a member of their own plastic surgery society and ISAPS has been properly trained to take care of your plastic surgery needs.

Whether you use our website to research your planned surgery, follow new developments in this growing field of medicine, or to find a surgeon, we applaud your desire for information.

Susumu Takayanagi, MD
ISAPS President
