Welcome to all members!

The catastrophe of humankind, which seemed to be over soon, is still on the rise.

I don't know what kind of wrong we have done so that we have to suffer in such a vast whirlwind and suffer so much that even pure academic efforts are considered a luxury.

I hope that someday the cause will be revealed, and we will overcome it wisely.

Still, KSAPS tries to roll the academic wheel again.

This APS 2021 is a hybrid of online and offline, but most contents can be viewed freely on the web. Instead, it may be more beneficial to study quietly in front of the desk in the room.

The first is health and safety. The second is academic will.

We hope you will be safe and healthy, and enjoy the unprecedented APS 2021 held in July this time and provide comfort. In 2022, the conference will be held again in April.

I hope you quench your academic thirst and have fun.

Thank you.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great honor and privilege to welcome all of you to the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (APS) 2021,
the international meeting on aesthetic plastic surgery held July 10th-11th.

Due to an unexpected worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, we had to cancel last year’s meeting. I would like to apologize to all the distinguished speakers and friends from all over the world who have prepared for last year’s events. We missed an extraordinary chance to enrich our academic passion and build a meaningful friendship. Nobody could have imagined a world we live today, a world of isolation with limited casual social meetings and international gatherings. It seems as if we are living the world of the past and are forced to drastically modify the way of living. Fortunately, vaccination procedures against the virus have begun in many countries and this may be the start of a big step in finishing this chaotic health crisis.

Although there has been progress in humanity’s fight against this virus, it is still difficult to travel and meet one another in person. Therefore the meeting this year will be held via online throughout the world. This new style of meeting is very untraditional and may be inconvenient for some speakers and participants. The method is unfamiliar, and different time zones may also be an obstacle. However, thanks to all the effort invested by many colleagues, new trials and productive results are very promising.

The meeting will provide every participant with technology and practice in field associated with aesthetic plastic surgery. Topics such as Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Aging Face Surgery, Breast Surgery, Facial Bone Contouring Surgery, Toxins and Fillers, Fat grafting and many other interesting issues will be covered by outstanding speakers and active discussions will follow. I believe that this program will be truly beneficial to everyone.

It is very disappointing that we cannot have a delightful gathering in the fantastic spring season of Seoul. I truly hope we could return back to the lifestyle we cherished before this pandemic and meet you all in person as soon as possible.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I invite you to join this enriching event.

With best regards,

Byeong min Lee

Dear Members and Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of the participants to the 2021 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Congress.

We are excited that the congress is taking place on a virtual platform in line with the social distancing norms, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program committee and leadership are working hard to make our first virtual meeting exciting, impactful, and reflective of the issues confronting our societies.
We are confident it will again be an excellent meeting bringing together members and colleagues within the KAPS community.

I sincerely thank you all for your big support for the congress. Especially, I would like to express my deep appreciation to our speakers.

I hope you will enjoy todays’ debates and networking with an open mind.

Thank you for your participation.
