Welcome to ASAPS
The Medical Professionals section of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) website is designed to provide physicians with essential information about ASAPS continuing medical education, products and services, and participation as an Active Member, International Active Member, Candidate/International Candidate, or plastic surgery resident/fellow.
ASAPS Active Membership is restricted to physicians certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, or certified in plastic surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, who also meet other specific qualifications for continuing medical education and experience in aesthetic surgery. International Active Members must meet high standards applicable within their respective countries.
ASAPS is committed to patient safety, advancing the quality of care, and practicing medicine based upon the best available scientific evidence on breast implants. We have issued a joint statement with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) regarding Breast Implant-Associated ALCL (BI-ALCL).
