The Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery


Our members are experienced—they must provide a portfolio of over 100 aesthetic cases before they are even considered for membership.


They’re vetted—our membership is by invite only, and even then, each applicant is carefully assessed by the entire membership prior to admission to the society.


Our members practices are cutting-edge. CSAPS was formed to lead knowledge and research in the field. At CSAPS we bring together the experts in aesthetic surgery who share their expertise to the best possible outcomes for our patients.
