Celebrating 40 Years

In 2024, the AACS will be marking the occasion of its 40th Annual Scientific Meeting, the 40 year anniversary of the formation of the Academy and the Journal. This provides us the opportunity to reflect on the long and unparalleled history of the AACS, and a celebration of the principles with which it was founded.

Core to our values is the delivery of quality education and training, and 2024 will be no different!

As an attendee, you will have three days to network, learn and share ideas with industry leaders from across the country. Join us, and you will:

  • Gather essential pearls in surgical techniques and patient care.
  • Discover new trends and innovations in the field of cosmetic surgery.
  • Learn new ways of approaching challenges in various surgical procedures.
  • Gain new insights into improving your skills and improve your practice.
  • Interact and engage in dialogue with experts with diverse background specialties such as dermatology, otolaryngology, general surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
  • Network and deepen relationships with new friends and colleagues.

We hope you will make plans to join us, where cosmetic surgery practitioners worldwide share new findings, new research, new techniques, new pearls, and new ideas. We have an exciting and packed event, and we look forward to welcoming you.
