Is there a list of cosmetic surgery societies?

Q:

Hi. I am looking for some well known and verified societies in aesthetic plastic surgery around the world. The problem is I have no idea how I can be sure that the society is authenticated or not. Could you help me solve this problem, by whether linking me to website or showing me the way to checking the credibility of the society?

A:

Of course there are, for example, the one that you are writing us is the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, for the United States of America, with some members worldwide like me, and for the world we have the International Society, ISAPS.

A:

For aesthetic (cosmetic) plastic surgery internationally I would start with ISAPS (ISAPS.org) which ensures high standards for both the surgeon and the facility.
