Mission Statement

The EAFPS mission and purpose are to facilitate and contribute to the creation of a body of duly qualified surgeons in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck.

Its objectives are to stimulate study, research and scientific advancement in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery between all the specialties that have common interests. These specialties typically being oto-rhino-laryngology, maxillo-facial surgery, ophthalmology and general plastic surgery.

The Academy is mainly for surgeons in Europe although it does have some interested members from outside Europe. The official language of the Academy is English. The Academy has been involved in the European Community in identifying facial plastic surgery as an entity.

The Academy is active in promoting appropriate training schemes for trainees in the subspecialty of facial plastic surgery to fulfil the EAFPS mission. There is a Postgraduate Fellowship Programme and opportunity to become  members of the International Federation of Facial Plastic Surgery Societies (IFFPSS). We have a common certification process. This process is based on and equal to the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) examination and rules for certification.


These include access to fellowships and certification (EBCFPRS and Board Exam), annual EAFPS meeting (at reduced registration rates), the official journals of the EAFPS: “Facial Plastic Surgery” and “Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine (FPSAM)” (“Formerly Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery”), a number of excellent surgical courses held under the auspices of the EAFPS, and an interspecialty network of experts that allows for quick and easy communication. The reduced rate of the journals alone pays for the membership and members find the professional development opportunities throughout the year to be invaluable. More information follows below about each membership benefit.

Journal Subscriptions

Subscriptions to Facial Plastic Surgery and/or Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine (FPSAM) are offered at special rates for all members of the EAFPS. (These reductions have already a higher value than the whole membership fee!)


EAFPS Newsletter with information about our European Academy, with exchange of ideas and opinions and continuing education are distributed to all EAFPS members
