The Miami ISAPS Conference has just finished. There was something for everyone and for those that couldn’t attend there were webinar opportunities. Patient Safety is always uppermost in the ISAPS philosophy. The structure of sessions was exceptional describing responsible marketing, legal protection, insurance, patient selection and a host of masterclass sessions from some of the World’s finest Plastic Surgeons. Paramount in the thought process of the Global Alliance is the potential to seek advice from partners from 63 nations with a total membership of over 3,000 members. It has taken many years of hard work from ISAPS Committee members but finally we are down to discussing the possibility of ISAPS Board Certification in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery after a period of training at Regional Internationally recognised Centres and the recognition of Aesthetic Surgery as a Superspecialty.
The next ISAPS Conference in Cologne 2019 is a must for all Plastic Surgeons seriously interested in expanding their horizons in the Aesthetics Field.
