The over 2,600 member American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), founded in 1967, is the leading organization of ABMS-certified plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery.
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.
The mission of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Inc., is to advance the science, art, and safe practice of aesthetic plastic surgery among qualified plastic surgeons through support and direction of medical education and research, sponsorship of scientific meetings and dissemination of information on current aesthetic surgical techniques; to promote and encourage the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care among aesthetic plastic surgeons; to serve the public interest by providing accurate and timely information regarding aesthetic plastic surgery and promoting patient safety; and to advance the medical profession and assure that aesthetic surgery maintains its proper place within the specialty of plastic surgery.
