Welcome to the website of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).
As the voice of plastic surgery in the UK, we aim to raise awareness of the breadth of plastic surgery, to promote innovation in teaching, learning and research and to increase overall understanding of the profession. This website is a resource for plastic surgeons and other medical professionals.
To counter serious concerns for patient safety BAPRAS is today launching a national education campaign – Think Over Before You Make Over – that aims to help anyone considering surgery to ensure the decision is the right one for them, and includes a range of free guides from some of the UK’s most experienced Plastic Surgeons.
