Purposes of ASCBS


The purpose of this society is to help all professionals provide the highest possible quality of care to women who wish to have cosmetic breast surgery. This is done through training, education, research and the interchange of ideas.

Breast size and shape has assumed a great social significance in our society.  Gender feelings of adequacy and self-esteem are related to breast appearance.  Inadequate breast volume and contour can be caused by 1) Developmental micromastia, 2) Postpartum involution, 3) Post-surgical deformities, 4) Breast asymmetry.  The American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery is dedicated to the highest standards of excellence in the evaluation and care of our patients, knowledge of avoidance of risk, and the paramount importance of maintaining the safety and health of our patients.

The purpose of our society is to provide the breast surgeon who treats breast cancer a means to gain knowledge about breast implants and how to use them, so that the cosmetic needs of the uninsured women the surgeon encounters can be routinely met at very little cost. This purpose will be fulfilled by the training and education offered by the meetings, workshops, handbooks, and the individual sharing by the faculty members of their knowledge and experience. 

In addition, we hope to help those women who need cosmetic help with deformities of the chest left by treatment of breast cancer, especially if they do not have insurance and cannot otherwise afford cosmetic surgical care.
