The demand for cosmetic surgery has never been greater. However for patients seeking a competent well-trained professional to provide that surgery, the search can seem confusing. This website is intended to help prospective patients identify a well-qualified and recognized Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon in your geographic area. The triangular logo at the top of this page is your confirmation that the surgeon is a Plastic Surgeon with a special focus on Aesthetic surgery.
More than ever before, our members are focusing their educational and research activities on patient safety and risk reduction; both are paramount to good surgical outcomes. These will remain major themes at our upcoming Annual Conference in Toronto on September 19th and 20th 2014. The quest to merge the latest in techniques and technology with the highest possible level of patient safety is the fine balance championed by the members of this Society, the CSAPS, since our founding in 1972.
