About the
Rhinoplasty Society of Europe

A few years ago the idea was born to found a European Society for surgeons who specialize in rhinoplasty analog to the 1996 founded U.S. Rhinoplasty Society.

Therefore a group of nine surgeons (plastic surgeons and otorhinolaryngologists) from Europe founded in May 2011 the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe, is intended as a scientifical and educational platform for plastic surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and maxillofacial surgeons who are deeply committed to plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic nasal surgery.

The first formal congress was after the 20th Anniversary Advanced Course for Functional and Aesthetic Rhinoplasty in Stuttgart, Germany in April of 2012, at which the first President, Prof. Dr. med. Dr. med. habil Wolfgang Gubisch, presided.

Our Mission

The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the open exchange of innovative ideas and techniques concerning plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty.

The Society consists of Surgeons throughout Europe and abroad who specialise in rhinoplasty.

The goal of the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe 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 Europe 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.

The Annual Meeting provides a forum for invited and submitted papers in a peer-reviewed format. The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe seeks to provide educational material in a program open to surgical specialists with interest in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty.
