Introduction of KCCS
The Misson 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 esthetic 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 esthetic demands of appearance but also restores and keeps physical 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 re-departmentalized in the overall area and the specialty has been deepened further by specializing 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 to 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 research.
To meet the demands of the times, cosmetic surgery and medicine should be developed into an independent 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 set up.
KCCS is an affiliated educational organization of KSKCS (Korean Society of Korean Cosmetic Surgery and medicine), which has been established for educating Korean cosmetic surgery and medicine systematically.
We have been organizing domestic and international conferences and workshops since our society's establishment in 2006. After 5 years of preparation, we are currently providing 3 kinds of educational programs such as Fellowship Course, Advance Course, and Special expert course. We have more than 450 fellows. Currently, KCCS has over 30 teaching fellows and over 400 life members.
KCCS is planning to realize the development of Asian cosmetic Surgery and build co-evolving and sustainable educational system through active and efficient communication with societies of cosmetic surgery from all over the world.
