Summary: The International Society of Plastic Regenerative Surgeons (ISPRES) has evolved over the years since its rebirth as an affiliated organization of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Over the years, ISPRES has held 6 International Congresses throughout the world. Recently, the ISPRES again had a strong and positive impact at the American Society of Plastic Surgeon's Annual Meeting held on September 19-24, 2019, in San Diego, California. A series of educational programming dedicated to fat grafting and regenerative plastic surgery took place on September 22 known as the ISPRES Dedicated Track. Overall, there were >300 attendees throughout the day who attended our ISPRES scientific program. Many of them were international attendees from many countries. In addition, more than half of the invited speakers were also international. The interests of learning from attendees and of sharing from invited speakers on fat grafting and its new role of regenerative plastic surgery again demonstrate an important value of those scientific panels organized by ISPRES. We are all looking forward to our future world congresses with excitement. Under the capable administrative support from American Society of Plastic Surgeons, ISPRES, this new dynamic society with their primary focus on fat grafting and regenerative surgery will definitely look for more worldwide educational opportunities and will lead this subspecialty of plastic surgery to the next level of excellence.
