EUGENE, Ore., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Kiya Movassaghi, Eugene, Oregon board certified plastic surgeon and director of Movassaghi Plastic Surgery & Ziba Medical Spa, was recently re-elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
"I am pleased and honored to be selected once again to serve with my colleagues on the ASAPS Board of Directors, who I can firmly say represent some of the finest professionals in the plastic surgery field today," states Dr. Movassaghi, who begins his second consecutive 3-year term as Member at Large in 2016.
One of the most prestigious organizations in aesthetic medicine, ASAPS includes 2,600 member surgeons who have met rigorous ASAPS requirements: certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or international equivalent, demonstrated excellence in surgical skill, safety, and ethical practice, and extensive training in cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures. Historically, only 25% of board certified plastic surgeons in North America have qualified for ASAPS membership.
As Member at Large, Dr. Movassaghi plays a prominent part in steering ASAPS goals and actions for advocating patient education, professional development, and surgical research and innovation. He comments:
"I am in a unique place to reach out to fellow surgeons throughout the nation, serving as a liaison between ASAPS members and the Board of Directors and ensuring that our organization is effectively supporting both advancement in patient care and professional development."
His re-election to the ASAPS board adds to a long list of awards and leadership roles Dr. Movassaghi has held throughout his 14 years in private practice, some of which include:
- President of the Northwest Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2015-2016
- Board of Directors, Member at Large, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 2013-2016
- 5-time winner of the Register-Guard Reader's Choice Award for "Best Cosmetic Surgeon" in Eugene
- Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Northwest Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Oregon Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Assistant clinical professor of plastic surgery at Oregon Health and Science University
While he admits that maintaining a high level of involvement outside his practice requires extra time and energy on his part, Dr. Movassaghi stresses that staying active in the community at the local, regional, and national level is an effective way for him to affect positive changes for aesthetic medical community and ultimately for the public at large.
