The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

When you entrust your face or body to a plastic surgeon, you want to be sure that you are selecting the very best. That’s why you should choose a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

What is ASAPS?

ASAPS is an organization devoted exclusively to advancing the sciences and art of cosmetic plastic surgery. Its members are a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons who have earned the right to display the distinctive ASAPS logo, depicting the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti and symbolizing ageless beauty. Today, this logo represents the highest achievement in cosmetic plastic surgery.

What sets ASAPS surgeons apart?

During their residency training, plastic surgeons learn to perform both reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery. Those who are members of ASAPS have chosen cosmetic surgery as their primary interest. That’s important to you for several reasons:

Specialization in cosmetic surgery. Only board-certified plastic surgeons who devote a significant portion of their practice to cosmetic plastic surgery are invited into ASAPS membership.

Ongoing education in the latest techniques. To maintain membership in ASAPS, a plastic surgeon must regularly participate in accredited continuing education in cosmetic surgery. This ensures that ASAPS surgeons are up-to-date with the latest advances in the field - advances that can directly benefit you.

Highest standards of patient care and ethical practice. Applicants for membership must be recommended by an ASAPS surgeon in their region who knows their professional reputation. ASAPS members adhere to the highest ethical standards for patient care and professional conduct.

Don’t settle for less.

When choosing your plastic surgeon, first check for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the board-certification that indicates complete training in plastic surgery. Then ask if your surgeon is a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
