    Chairman of the General Assembly

    Hello! Dear members!


    I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for granting me an opportunity to serve as the 29th chairman of the Korean Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
    Then again, I am also worried about whether I can accomplish my mission as a chairman successfully.

    As a result of the devoted dedication of the excellent chairmen, presidents, executive directors and members, the Korean Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has achieved both qualitative and quantitative growth for 30 years, in a relatively short period of time and now it has become a center of cosmetic surgery in the world. Such conspicuous development is a proud of Korean medical field and we are deserved to proud of what we have done.

    Contrary to such a remarkable development of cosmetic plastic surgery, the business environment of our members has become difficult for many years. And recently it has become more difficult due to external and internal incidents happened around us.
    We must take this difficulty as a new leap and challengeable opportunity, not as an obstacle but as a platform for development.

    I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Han Seung-gyu, the executive directors of the executive department, and former chairman Kim Eung-chun who have worked hard for the development of the Korean Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for the past year.
    I would like to ask for your loving attention and cooperation so that I can fulfill my duty in this difficult times. I will do my best to become a chairman who will always listen to our member's voice and be trying to be better.

    I wish you and your family health, happiness, good luck and prosperity.
    Thank you very much!

    Hello, all the honorable members of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
    The Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery was established in 1985. For the last 32 years, all the members including senior members have devoted their excellent capabilities and affections to the society. Now, thanks to their love and efforts, the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has become one of the leading societies in the world, not to mention in Asia.
    In particular, the annual Conference on Aesthetic Plastic Surgery held jointly with the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons has already become a brand, and settled as an internationally renowned conference on plastic surgery, where more than 100 plastic surgeons from more than 10 countries participate in every year.
    Together with it, the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has signed MOUs, or in the process of making them with the societies of aesthetic surgery in America, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, China, Japan, and Taiwan and so on.
    I would like to express my deep gratitude to all the members of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and all the staff members of the previous executives of the society who have devoted their energies to the development of the society. Thus, as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors, I feel deeply responsible for the society.

    Recently, the domestic and foreign medical environment where we are placed has become increasingly tough. Indiscreet treatment of non-surgeons who have not been professionally trained threatens the professional sphere of plastic surgeons. As a result, the social perception on aesthetic surgery has become distorted. In addition, different views and positions among plastic surgeons have increased conflicts among them.
    To overcome such a difficulty, and to maintain and boost the status of the society where previous staff members have devoted their energies to develop, the staff members of the 15th Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will try our best. Aware of the identity of the society, we will inherit the 32 year history and tradition, and succeed the projects our previous executive members have started. In addition, responding to the new demand of the age, we will focus on the following three things.

    First, though The Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Korean Society of Plastic Surgery, and the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons have some differences in their goals and projects they pursue, the three societies are composed mostly of same members. Consequently, I think that the policies those societies pursue and are helpful to the members should be the same. But, differences in positions among staff members of the three societies have caused conflicts among members. The situation is so tough that it is difficult to deal with it even if we are united. So, we should not be in conflict. Thus, the new staff members of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will make the interests of its members the top priority in making decisions on policies. And, we will closely cooperate with the Korean Society of Plastic Surgery, and the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to try to make the same policies among the three societies.

    Second, we will expand the international base of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to boost it to lead the global aesthetic plastic surgery. We will make efforts to further internationalize the Conference on Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and be more active to communicate with societies of aesthetic plastic surgery in various countries as well as in Asia. In addition, we will promote the International Fellowship system to educate foreign surgeons and to publicize excellent capabilities of Korean plastic surgeons.

    Third, to make the public understand correctly the role of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and activities of its members, we will make efforts to publicize the society. Besides, by further activating the home page of the society and newsletter, we will try to give good information more to the members of the society.
    For the coming two years, I will make efforts to develop the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. I hope all of the members of the society will provide continuous attention and active participation in it.

    Dear all members of the Korean Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, I wish that all of you will develop further, and you are always be fortunate. Thank you.
