Plastic Surgery always is evolving. The principles of plastic surgery know no anatomic boundaries. Subspecialization should not inhibit thorough knowledge that is essential for every plastic surgeon.

INTERNATIONAL PLASTIC SURGERY evolved from "Specializzandi e Specialisti in Chirurgia Plastica" that was created by Italian residents who were keen to share their knowledge in Plastic Surgery. The membership has since blossomed with internationally known plastic surgeons joining the group.
