The International Society of Cosmetogynecology is the world’s first and largest association of gynecologic specialists in female cosmetic medicine and surgery.
The mission of the International Society of Cosmetogynecology (ISCG) is to promote the advancement of knowledge, skill and excellence in female cosmetic medicine and surgery through education, training and fellowship.
The primary goal of the International Society of Cosmetogynecology is to promote and participate in the exchange of surgical knowledge and techniques amongst gynecologists worldwide. Fundamental to this goal, the Society seeks to cultivate and fortify relationships with surgeons around the globe from all specialties which participate in the cosmetic and aesthetic management of women.
We will increase our visibility in the fields of Medicine and Surgery by acquainting other organizations having regional, national and international significance with our activities. This visibility will be supported through an open technical milieu to encourage member participation.
The International Society of Cosmetogynecology is dedicated to serving the needs of the cosmetic gynecologic surgeon, to enrich the member’s life both personally and professionally. By delivering superior educational programs on a regular basis, the members of the ISCG have the opportunity to grow and evolve professionally with the sense of brotherhood the Society imparts.
The ISCG was founded in 2004 by Drs. Marco A. Pelosi II and Marco A. Pelosi III and has more than 700 members in over 30 countries dedicated to the worldwide advancement of surgical knowledge, skill and excellence. North America has the largest concentration of members followed by South & Central America.
The Society was founded to fill an academic void in the field of women’s healthcare in a milieu of changing societal opinions toward cosmetic surgery and medicine and a nontraditional shift in the practice patterns of many gynecologists. The founders experienced and observed that the traditional knowledge base and skill set of the practicing gynecologist formed an excellent foundation for the addition of new cosmetic surgical knowledge and skills. They also saw that the learning curve for most procedures was relatively short because of the broad transportability of pelvic surgical skills and experience to procedures outside this area. Furthermore, they understood that the gynecologist has a unique relationship with the female patient yielding the potential for more complete aesthetic management beyond the scalpel.
