Welcome to the Rhinoplasty Society of South Africa

Society of Rhinoplasty Surgeons of South Africa

The goal of the Society is education and exchange of experience. Therefore the bylaws are structured that plastic surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and maxillofacial surgeons will be represented on the Board of Directors. The intention of the Founding Members was that the Rhinoplasty Society of South Africa acts as an educational platform for its members, to allow specialized members who have a strong clinical, teaching, and research interest in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty to exchange and develop their ideas and to work out problems in a common forum of mutual respect and collegiality.

Message from the president

We are a brand new multi-disciplinary surgical specialist society with a single goal of encouraging excellence in Rhinoplasty.

As a society we aim to:

  • Provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas relating to the art and science of rhinoplasty.
  • To promote and update education and research pertaining to rhinoplasty in order to inform the membership, the medical profession, and the general public.
  • To promote the highest standards of professional skill and competence among rhinoplasty surgeons.
  • To promote the highest ethical standards of professional conduct among rhinoplasty surgeons.
  • To cooperate with other organizations for the advancement of knowledge in the field of rhinoplasty.
  • To produce an annual Scientific Meeting comprised of peer-reviewed presentations by nasal surgeons in South Africa and other countries. The meetings will be open to members of the Society and their plastic surgical, facial plastic surgical or otolaryngologist guests and to trainees in one of these specialties.
  • To serve as a non-political organization dedicated to the study of nasal surgery, specifically designed and organized to minimize any inter-specialty differences. Actions that indicate or imply artificial standards or hierarchies among members and/or other surgeons are contrary to the philosophical intent of the organization.
