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 the ASAPS?

The ASAPS is an organization devoted exclusively to advancing the science 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.

About ASAPS members

The requirements for membership in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are designed to encourage application by trained and experienced plastic surgeons who concentrate their practices in performing cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and the entire body. ASAPS membership remains an exclusive privilege for those surgeons who possess the necessary qualifications. Only about one-quarter of all American Board of Plastic Surgery certified surgeons have been accepted into ASAPS membership. Physicians who have been trained in specialties other than plastic surgery are not eligible for membership in ASAPS.

Among the requirements for invitation and election to ASAPS membership, a plastic surgeon must:

  • Be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or, in plastic surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada*
  • Be in at least the third year of active practice following board certification
  • Participate in accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) to stay current with developments in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery
  • Document the performance of a significant number and variety of cosmetic
    surgical cases to demonstrate wide experience;
  • Be sponsored by two ASAPS-member plastic surgeons to help ensure that the applicant's professional reputation meets the high standards required by ASAPS
  • Adhere to current ethical standards for professional conduct as outlined in the Code of Ethics observed by all ASAPS-member surgeons.

* Plastic surgeons who are not citizens of the United States or Canada who meet the high professional and ethical standards required for ASAPS membership may become ASAPS international active members.

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.

Don't settle for less than a board-certified plastic surgeon who has earned membership in ASAPS, the Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery™.
