Thank you everyone who attended our 2023 symposium.

Why go to Hawaii?

…is a question that you probably already have the answer to. Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Enriched with its unique blend of cultures and history, it is a place open for adventure from its beautiful and majestic mountains, golden-sand beaches, waterfalls, and lush forests. It is one of the most unique places in the world embracing both the spiritual beauty of the hula and the visceral power of an active volcano.

This is your opportunity to experience all that is Hawaii. Join us to celebrate the 35th anniversary of our biennial Hawaii Plastic Surgery Symposium from Saturday, January 21, through Monday, January 23, 2023, at the Waikiki Prince Hotel. Make your reservations now and imagine yourself wearing a fragrant flower lei, sipping a Mai Tai and enjoying a beautiful Hawaiian sunset.

Prepare for another great program with world-renowned speakers. We are honored to have among the guest faculty, the current president of the Aesthetic Society, Jennifer Walden and two past presidents Clyde Ishii and Malcolm Paul. Ernie Manders will present “The Glorious Past and the Bright Future of Plastic Surgery” on Saturday morning. Kiya Movassaghi, will be our ASAPS Visiting Professor and will present several innovative aesthetic surgery topics. There will also be presentations by well-known experts in the fields of rhinoplasty including ethnic rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and Asian blepharoplasty. Other highlighted lectures will cover breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, female genital rejuvenation, gluteal contouring, cleft lip, and palate repair.

Registration fees also include a very special Polynesian dinner event on Saturday evening at our conference hotel.

Warmest regards, 

Board of Directors



On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Officers of the Pan-Pacific Surgical Association, we welcome you to our 35th Biennial Pan-Pacific Congress and its 35th Hawaii Plastic Surgery Symposium! We have gathered here in a setting that is the best that nature offers only a few steps from the warm and clear waters of the Pacific Ocean and under the shades of the swaying palm trees.

As importantly we are fortunate to enjoy the knowledge and experience of a most prominent volunteer faculty from around the world and the Pacific Basin. Last and certainly not least, we are here to renew friendships and make new friends with colleagues while we exchange our thoughts and get new ideas in how to improve our clinical practices.

We are also fortunate to have several high ranking leaders speakers from S. Korea share their unique and innovative experiences in facial, eyelids, nose, and breast procedures with us.

Of course, we must not forget that Hawaii and in particular Waikiki Beach are the most precious and inviting playgrounds in the world and we wish you and your family and children a lot of fun during your stay in the isles.

Mahalo nui loa!
