Message from Course Director and ISAPS Education Council Chairman



It is my great honor and pleasure to chair once again one more ISAPS Postgraduate Course in India, this time to be held in Kolkata, in January 2019.

The great success of the previous ISAPS Courses held in Goa 2012, Jaipur 2014 and Agra 2016 make all of us in the Educational Council of ISAPS feel very responsible and keen to work hard for one more successful Course.

Moreover, my previous enrollment in several ISAPS events held in conjunction with the Indian local IAAPS meetings, as well as in numerous other scientific meetings in India for the last 10 years, have given me the opportunity to meet Indian colleagues plastic surgeons, to exchange knowledge and make great friendships, to get used in the way of living and customs of the country and hopefully to have fulfilled the expectations of the local plastic surgery community regarding transfer of education and knowledge in the field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

In my capacity as the Education Council Chairman and Course Director of the Kolkata event, together with Dr. Manoj Khanna the ISAPS National Secretary of India and Kolkata ISAPS Course co-Director, Dr. Ashish Davalbhakta…EC regional representative, Dr. Rakesh Kalra, ISAPS Asst. NS and the rest of the organizing committee, our target will be one and only. To set up and excellent faculty and scientific program, which will cover the majority of issues in Aesthetic Surgery and will offer a high standard of education to the attendees.

Looking forward to meeting you in Kolkata.

Warm regards
