The Mission Statement of the KCCS
Nowadays cosmetic surgery and medicine doesn't confine itself to a partial field of specific specialty. It has
pulled together all kinds of medical fields related to consequential aesthetic pursuit and has built its own area.
It's high time to develop cosmetic surgery and medicine into an independent specialty with its own rights.
Recent cosmetic surgery not only fulfills aesthetic demands of appearance but also restores and keeps phy-
sical and mental functions. Furthermore, it has been developed into the study for anti-aging.
Accordingly, this reality suggests that cosmetic surgery and medicine has been redepartmentalized
in the overall area and the specialty has been deepened further by specilizing each field.
Cosmetic surgery has been forming an independent area as a special field of medicine. Many cosmetic
surgeons are putting in a great deal of effort ot secure the specialty of the departmentalized fields.
Besides, a variety of procedures and surgical approaches based on scientific grounds have been developed
by them and the validity verification is ongoing to seek better perfection and satisfaction. And they
are undergoing clinical trials and reserarch.
To meet the demands of the times, cosmetic surgery and medicine should be developed into and independ-
ent field with expertise. First of all, we need well-organized educational system to establish the its foundation.
The fields and pastures for systematic training and various educational opportunities are essential conditions
for acquiring new knowledge and skills.
An institute performing these objects is needed until cosmetic surgery and medicine is recognized as an
independent specialty accordingly. Therefore, we declare the establishment of the KCCS with a sense of historic
duty as a medium of professional and systematic education until cosmetic surgery and medicine is clearly

The mission of the KCCS is to foster, promote, support, augment, develop and encourage the science, art and practice of cosmetic surgery.
In order to achieve this goal, the doctors trying to practice cosmetic surgery should be trained with proper learning programs based on systematic knowledge and accumulated experience. It will raise the cosmetic surgical standards and protect patients. As a result, they will be able to get happiness and satisfaction from the surgery.
|Starting a career in Korean cosmetic Surgery and medicine|
Whether you are a medical student, a specialist or a general practitioner, if you are to practice cosmetic surgery, first of all, you have to decide if you have an eye for beauty for yourself, and then try your best to acquire surgical procedure for attaining ideal beauty patients want.
Particularly cosmetic surgical procedure is closely connected with a variety of fields of specialization such as ophthalmology, otolaryngology, dermatology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic reconstructive surgery, ob/gyn and general surgery. That is the reason you should acquire knowledge and skills through a special training course. The reality is ,however, significant numbers of cosmetic surgeons are performing surgical procedures based on the skills picked up from experienced friends and acquaintances on an apprenticeship basis.
No one can deny the fact that well-organized training program based on the most up-to-date information and vast experience is far superior to this type of personal learning not merely in the efficiency of the education itself, the reliability of surgical procedure and improvement of skills but also in the securement of evidential matters for proper training. To carry out the mission, it is the formal residency program that is absolutely needed. The same is true of cosmetic medicine.
Though they have the residency programs that teach this field in US and Australia now, thoses course are based on Caucasian cosmetic surgery. We all know that Such approach is very different from Asian's. Thus the existence of specialized training institute is essential. So far, however, there has been no this kind of formal residency program in almost all asian countries including Korea.
Fortunately, the regular residency program for Asian cosmetic surgery conducted by the KCCS will offer great opportunities to many doctors who are trying to learn Asian cosmetic surgery
