Dr Alain Fogli is a member of the ISAPS Specialty PromotionCommittee and ISAPS National Secretary for France. Dr Foglihas been Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Syndicateof Plastic Surgery in France for over five years. The NationalSyndicate is a National Union whose purpose is to protect thespecialty and the Syndicate has an official spokesperson forthe Government. Members of the Board of Directors are electedby French plastic surgeons. The changes initiated in Francewere in response to extensive publicity about cosmetic surgerythat drew attention to the lack of traditional safeguards forpatients. It became necessary for the Government to learn moreabout the field of cosmetic surgery, including its financialand safety aspects. The Government initiated an inquiry andthe Syndicate was subsequently invited to participate in thewriting new regulations. Dr Fogli and Dr Hepner met with theHealth Minister to assist in formulating the regulations andthe final proposition was put to Parliament and passed intoLaw.

The regulations are also designed to monitor the practice ofcosmetic surgery and to avoid possible abuse.
