The mission of our Society is the advancement of the science, art, and safe practice of aesthetic plastic surgery among qualified plastic surgeons.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is announcing Dr. James Matas as the President-Elect of the Aesthetic Society, which is the nation’s leading organization of board-certified plastic surgeons specializing in cosmetic surgery of the face and body. Dr. Matas has been an ASAPS member since 1997, and currently provides cosmetic enhancement at his private Orlando plastic surgery practice.
As Dr. Matas prepares for his new role as President of an organization of more than 2,600 board-certified plastic surgeons, he says he will rely on the experience he gained serving as President of the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons, and ASAPS Treasurer. He adds that while he has enjoyed his time serving the needs of his current position as the Chair of the Publications Committee, he is looking forward to following in the footsteps of those successful presidents before him and leading ASAPS into another successful year.
One goal Dr. Matas highlights is continuing the momentum the society has created through the promotion of education and safety to members and patients alike. “The mission of our Society is the advancement of the science, art and safe practice of aesthetic plastic surgery among qualified plastic surgeons as well as serving the public interest by providing accurate and timely information regarding aesthetic plastic surgery and promoting patient safety. As the future President of ASAPS, I will continue our efforts to accomplish these goals.”
