The International Confederation of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (IPRAS) will hold its 18th World Congress in Vienna, Austria, at the Hofburg Palace from July 7th to July 11, 2016.

The IPRAS expects 3,000 plastic surgeons from 105 countries to participate in this scientific event, which will feature program topics including breast surgery, aesthetic surgery, facial rejuvenation, hand surgery, ear reconstruction, body contouring, experimental research, and much more.

The IPRAS was founded in 1955 by a group of globally conscious plastic surgeons who foresaw the need for an international body of plastic surgeons to conduct scientific exchanges and develop the specialty worldwide.
