Dear colleagues and friends!
2 years have passed since the creation of the Ukrainian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons USAPS. Thanks to all members of the society who supported me for the USAPS presidential election. During these 2 years the Society was formed and actively developed. It is necessary to note a significant role in this Professor Khrapach Vasily, whose activity contributed to our consolidation.
We have achieved significant success during this period: USAPS has over 150 members! We are a force that can both protect itself and show its capabilities. We have achieved real success in legitimizing the job of plastic surgery. You have witnessed a large number of congresses, conferences, workshops and other training events under the rule of USAPS, during which experts from all over the world have visited our country and shared their experience. I am sure that thanks to such measures the professionalism of our specialists has significantly increased.
USAPS development plans for the next 2 years are tramendous!
There is confidence that this year efforts in our job will be realized. We plan to carry out training activities with the involvement of the best world specialists, to cooperate actively with world organizations and leading clinics in Europe and the USA, to improve the methods of legal assistance to surgeons. The first in Ukraine Chamber of Experts-Advocates for pre-trial decisions of conflict situations in plastic surgery and thematic expert groups of surgeons will be created to resolve ethical and legal conflicts.
Active promotion of the capabilities of plastic surgeons in Ukraine, USAPS members, both in Ukraine and abroad is planned. The company plans to be actively involved in all international medical tourism projects. And at the same time – to protect Ukraine from the dominance of low-quality surgery by foreigners, by initiating and adopting relevant laws.
The charity direction will not be left aside either. We planned assistance projects for victims of ATO events, low-income sections of the population requiring plastic surgery.
I believe that by common efforts we will achieve the best results and will bring plastic surgery of Ukraine to the international level. Because only together we are power! Join USAPS.
President of USAPS
