The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), represents the global cosmetic surgery community. It has launched a Global Alliance forum as a clear voice for the industry and to address the important issue of patient safety. The Global Alliance will have a physical and virtual presence to advise and consult on all concerns relating to cosmetic surgery on a global scale.

The target for the next two years is to narrow the international gap on standards of accreditation among different countries, cultures and surgeons.  The alliance is of 40 national cosmetic surgery societies.
