As the EASAPS President, I couldn’t be happier than welcoming everyone to my city – Lisbon. The EASAPS biennial meeting has become a special event, where all the National Societies can meet to learn something new and discuss problems and victories in our speciality.  EASAPS will continue to serve the European Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons for years to come, and the path has been set.  Lisbon will offer joy and fun as well as an opportunity for you all to follow a very exciting scientific programme , where top quality presentations will be given, and an exhibition area for industry where new technology can be showcased.This meeting will be held in presence and of course we will be following all the Covid regulations that will be in place next year.

The purpose of EASAPS is to serve our member societies and European  aesthetic plastic surgeons and promote the European spirit.

We hope to see in marvelous Lisbon next year

We are delighted to invite you all again to EASAPS biennial meeting that will be held in Lisbon 2022. This important event will promote the EASAPS vision that is to focus on European education and training within our plastic surgical specialty. We would especially like to invite our younger colleagues to take part.  In times of unclear regulation concerning aesthetic plastic surgery, we strongly believe that a European network strengthens our specialty.

Please inform all your colleagues about the opportunity to share the latest knowledge on breast surgery, BIA-ALCL and body contouring during this important event which is targeted to all you with special interest in the field of aesthetic surgery. In addition, non-invasive technologies will be presented.  The meeting offers interesting lectures for young plastic surgeons and residents with a full day of masterclasses and lectures. Experienced plastic surgeons will enjoy two and a half day sessions of advanced masterclasses, keynotes, interactive discussions and lectures.

All lectures will be covered by the expert faculty members and will focus on long-term results, patient safety, refinements of techniques as well as management of complications and adverse events.

According to EASAPS by-laws, we will also invite all member societies to submit the best presentation held at their National annual meeting 2021 to be part of the “Voice of Europe” session. Young specialists in plastic surgery or those in the last year of residency are welcomed to submit an abstract with focus on breast or body contouring aspects. The best presentation of them will be awarded with a fellowship in a center of aesthetic plastic surgery.  Deadline for submission of abstracts will be the 31th of December 2021.

We hope to see you in March 2022.
