IMCAS Mission Statement
IMCAS is dedicated to achieving the highest quality of teaching through the interface of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology. Achieving this vision requires a dynamic organization whose mission embodies the following standards:
- Unification and fair representation of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology
- Excellence in teaching all leading subjects on Aging Skin Treatments
- Constant adherence to ethical conduct
Unequalled Tradition of Professional Support
IMCAS started in 1994, in Paris, France, as a congress dedicated to plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Since its conception, IMCAS has sought to bridge the knowledge vacuum between Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Dermatology, thereby generating a synergetic and mutually reinforcing interface among these two fields.
What began more than a decade ago has now grown in terms of participation and renown. As such, IMCAS has become one of the most important international courses dedicated to Aging Skin Treatments. IMCAS Annual Congress is held in Paris during the month of January and welcomes more than 4 000 participants from 85 countries.
