Only members of the ASPS have the privilege to exhibit this logo. It represents membership in a society whose goal is to organize, protect, promote and provide education in all aspects relating to the field of Plastic Surgery, involving both Reconstructive and Cosmetic surgery. It also provides the public with educational tools and up to date information about treatments and procedures. The annual meeting is usually held in the Fall and Plastic Surgeons from around the globe convene to learn the latest in technique and research and to serve as a platform to continually hone their surgical skills.
Again, only members of ASAPS can display this logo and its affiliate surgeons have demonstrated an affinity to the subspecialty of Plastic Surgery known as Aesthetic or more commonly, Cosmetic Surgery. Significant experience in this area is a requirement for membership, which is by invitation and requires sponsorship and this annual meeting is usually held in the Spring.
