About AAPS

The American Association of Plastic Surgeons, founded in 1921, is the oldest organized Plastic Surgery organization in the world.
Its Annual Meeting is the academic highlight of our specialty.

The purpose of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons is to advance the science and art of plastic surgery through surgical education, research, scientific presentations, and professional interaction.

The Association conducts an annual scientific program concerning topics of interest to plastic surgeons.

The meeting is available to physicians who are either members or guests of the Association. The educational activities are limited to the annual scientific meeting which includes peer-review presentations and panel discussions. The goal of the program is to provide current information on new developments, as well as reviews of established plastic surgical practices.
