The recognised voice of plastic surgery in Belgium

RBSPS is the official organisation representing plastic surgery to the public, the industry and the government. It aims to raise awareness about the extensiveness and the possibilities of the different aspects of our speciality. It also stimulates innovation, training and scientific research.


The RBSPS unites officially recognised plastic surgeons with a diploma in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery as well as candidates in training in this speciality.

Since its foundation in 1955, the RBSPS ensures the quality and the safety of the care for the patients who undergo medical or surgical interventions in Belgium, whether they are of reconstructive or aesthetic nature. To this end, it encourages and supports high standards of training, ethics and good practice.

The RBSPS is committed to keeping its members regularly informed of scientific and technological updates on new developments (e.g. PIP, ALCL, COVID-19, VAT, etc.). The society is also responsible for the organisation of national congresses, thus ensuring continuous training.

The society actively participates in defending the interests of its members. It defends, among other things, the accreditation of surgical infrastructures that are subject to rigorous external control of equipment and personnel in order to guarantee patient safety. It is involved in the difficult task of revising and updating the nomenclature.

It also carries out awareness-raising actions with government agencies, public relations, etc.
