The theme of this course will be “Asian Techniques in Aesthetic Surgery” that will feature presentations on the most current techniques in aesthetic surgery by a faculty of renowned international and local plastic surgeons. The ISAPS Course Philippines will be held in conjunction with the First National Meeting of the Philippine Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (PAPRAS).

With delegates coming from different parts of the world, we anticipate that the event will foster exchange of knowledge and stimulate discussions about current concerns and future directions in our field.

Aside from these intellectual exchanges, you will have the opportunity to discover the beauty of the Philippine islands, and experience the warmth and hospitality for which Filipinos are known for. Find out for yourself why the Philippine Tourism slogan is, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”
