OSAPS - 12th Conference of the Oriental Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

"Toward the Safe and Reliable Surgery"

12th Congress of the ORIENTAL SOCIETY OF AESTHETIC PLASTIC SURGERYThe 12th International Congress of the Oriental Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (OSAPS) was successfully held last November 1-3, 2010 in Shinagawa Prince Hotel, Tokyo, Japan. With much gratitude to the efforts of Professor Yoshiaki Hosaka and the rest of the Japan Plastic Surgery Society, the 12th Congress brought together around 300 delegates from its 10 member countries. OSAPS is an international Plastic Surgery society composed of 10-member countries (Japan, Singapore, Thailand, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Indonesia, and the Philippines).

The Congress’ Course Director, Dr. Susumu Takayanagi, created a very diverse and comprehensive scientific program which included the premiere offering of the ISAPS Symposium. Dr. Takayanagi also brought together more than 60 international faculty for the Congress from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the United States. This day-long symposium held last November 1 included various topics such as “Fillers, Laser & Plasma,” “Breast and Body,” “Breast,” “Eyelid,” and “Facial Rejuvenation & Fat.” The addition of the ISAPS symposium in the scientific program of the Congress was a welcome addition to the Congress. It is currently being recommended to be offered in all succeeding OSAPS conferences.

In the following days in the Congress, various panel discussions were held on Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Face Lift, Liposuction & Lipoinjection, Facial Contouring, Wound Healing, and Facial Rejuvenation. Indeed, the Congress was a very intellectually stimulating event to share much insight, wisdom and various techniques with fellow plastic surgeons.

The Oriental Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons was born in 1988 under the helm of Dr. Seiichi Ohmori. The leadership of the society was turned over to his son Dr. Kitaro Ohmori in 1990. Dr. Ohmori has carried the society for the last twenty-two years, cultivating and enriching the vision of his father. The society has played a formidable role in the formation of oriental plastic surgeons and has provided a platform for its members to be recognized internationally.

Another first for the Congress, is the appointment of the new Secretary-General, Dr. Florencio Lucero from the Philippines. Dr. Lucero humbly accepted the responsibility from Dr. Ohmori to bring the society to new grounds focusing on better integration with international societies such as the ISAPS and the IPRAS. Dr. Lucero, a founding member of the OSAPS, and a senior plastic surgeon in the Philippines for the last 30 years, was also part of the international faculty for the ISAPS symposium in the 12th OSAPS Congress.

Apart from the exchange of medical ideas and innovations, the OSAPS Congresses have always been warm, hospitable, gracious and undeniably, gastronomical. Experiencing the best of Japan’s culinary wonders, cultural traditions, and sincere camaraderie was a welcome delight! From the bento boxes to the sumptuous buffets and the lovely entertainment, our Japanese hosts truly organized an impressive experience for all its delegates.

We all look forward to meeting again, sharing stories and techniques, come October 2012 in Seoul, Korea.
