"I first became interested in cosmetic surgery when I attended a rhinoplasty presentation by Dr. Richard Webster in New York City. I became an AACS Fellow after realizing that I wanted to learn about this new specialty. As cosmetic surgery has become more popular, it has also become more advanced in depth and scope. Thanks to the AACS, cosmetic surgery is recognized by the AMA as a self-designated specialty. AACS delegates contribute to major AMA policy forums – they drive decisions of national importance. AACS meetings and workshops an opportunity for fellowship with others of similar interests as well as continuing medical education (CME). There are also opportunities for publications, presentations and training. The AACS is the best partner in education and training a cosmetic surgeon can have. My membership has made a difference in my practice. The AACS will make a difference in yours, too."
