The Society of Cosmetic Surgeons

The Society of Cosmetic Surgeons (Previously The Society of Cosmetic Surgery - ISCS), a not for profit organization, has been formed with the aim of stimulating and guiding the growth of cosmetic surgery in India.

The society will strive to achieve this aim by fostering inter disciplinary approach and cooperation.

By definition, cosmetic surgery is a subspecialty of medicine and surgery that uniquely restricts itself to the enhancement of appearance through surgical and medical techniques. It is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal. Cosmetic surgery is practiced by surgeons from various disciplines such as dermatologic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, general surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons and ocular plastic surgeons, all of whom take a comprehensive approach directed to all areas of the head, neck and body.

The ISCS has adopted the byelaws of the American Society of Cosmetic Surgery adapting them to the Indian context.
