It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS). As the President of CSAPS, I invite you to learn more about our organization and its members. It is my honour and privilege to serve as the President of this amazing group of over 160 skilled Cosmetic Surgeons, all of whom are Board certified in Plastic Surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Our Society’s mandate is to educate our members and the public about cosmetic surgery in Canada. We strive to provide evidence-based research and safe outcomes to patients seeking our care, which we accept as a great privilege.

The Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery was founded in 1972. Its members provide professional care to Canadians in search of safe and exemplary outcomes.
