INTERNATIONAL MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT & ACTIVITIES

Representatives from over 40 national plastic surgery societies signed a Founders Agreement establishing the new International Confederation of Plastic Surgery Societies (ICOPLAST). ASPS is proud to be a founding member, and played a key role in establishing the new organization. The mission of ICOPLAST is to improve patient outcomes worldwide; to educate, communicate, advocate and advance the specialty of Plastic Surgery globally; to ensure that quality and safety are the essential components of reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery training and patient care, and to encourage the collaboration of national Plastic Surgery societies worldwide.

Thanks to a significant reorganization, which includes an affiliation agreement with the ASPS, the International Society of Plastic and Regenerative Surgeons (ISPRES) was reborn in 2015. ISPRES fulfills the need for a forum where plastic surgeons from around the world exchange ideas and advance the exciting new frontier of Regenerative Plastic Surgery.
