IMCAS Mission Statement
IMCAS is dedicated to providing the highest quality of teaching through the interface of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology.
Achieving this vision requires a dynamic organization which mission embodies the following standards:
- Unification and fair representation of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology
- Excellence in teaching all leading subjects on Aging Skin Treatments

Unequalled Tradition of Professional Support
IMCAS started in 1995, 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. Our Annual Congress is annually held in Paris during the month of January and welcomes more than 4 000 delegates from 85 different countries and more than 145 exhibitors.
