ISAPSmentoring Programs

We are happy to present our new program in Aesthetic Education Worldwide® - ISAPSmentoring.

All of us admire our idols who revealed the secrets of aesthetic plastic surgery and helped us to survive during training the following years in practice. ISAPS now helps Resident/Fellow and Associate members to find support from experienced colleagues and invites all members who have more than five years in practice to support highly motivated young talents as an ISAPS Mentor.  

There are many situations during one's career where we can benefit from a mentor's wisdom. Many residents are looking for possible rotations during their trianing to improve their skills in different fields of plastic and aesthetic surgery that might not be offered in only one single clinic. The Mentor helps connect already established colleagues with young and highly motivated trainees. Another task is to give advice in choosing suitable meetings and courses for each level of training. Today a huge variety of aesthetic courses is offered and most young colleagues don't know what they can expect from them. In additional to the ISAPS endorsements, a personal mentor can help the mentee select the right meetings to get the most out of them step by step. 

After finishing training, new challenges are waiting for young surgeons. Whether as a board certified plastic surgeon working in a clinic or in a private office, new responsibilities deman one's skills and strength. Especially in this period, ISAPSmentoring bolsters our young members with help in difficult plastic surgical cases regarding indications, best techniques and, if necessary, salvage procedures. 

Mentor and mentee can connect via email or WhatsApp and have quick exchanges. ISAPSmentoring encourages our seasoned members to become an official ISAPS Mentor and our young members to take advantage of this treasure of experience. 

If you are interested in becoming an ISAPS Mentor, or if you have questions about participating, please don't hesitate to contact our team. You are welcome to send an email to to request an application.
