- On this page you will find all information about the Royal Belgian Society for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (abbreviated RBSPS) and of the Professional Association of Belgian Plastic Surgeons (VBS).

- The RBSPS is a scientific society, under the form of a non-profit organisation. The Board of Directors that manages this society, and is therefore responsible for it, is elected biennially. The general assembly of members meets during the spring meeting.

- The professional association is formed from a professional union and depends on the Confederation of Belgian Professional Associations of Medical Specialists (VBS-GBS). Its general assembly takes place at the same time as that of the scientific society. It elects its general board at the same time as that of the latter.

- In 2007, at the request of the two general assemblies, it was decided to unite the two boards in one entity for practical efficiency.

The current Board of Directors consists of:
  • President RBSPS en VBS: Dr. Pascal Castus (Bruxelles)
