From the President

The American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM®) became in 2001, the 15th national member of the International Union of Aesthetic Medicine (UIME). As a founding member and its first president, I bring to the AAAM® more than 25 years of experience in the clinical practice of Aesthetic Medicine. My long association with organized aesthetic medical societies underscores my commitment and passion to the aesthetic medicine movement. A founding member and president of the Belgian Society of Aesthetic Medicine, I later became president of the UIME and currently serve on the Executive Board as an honorary president and CME Director. Attending the UIME International Congress brings a wide range of faculty and professionals together to exchange ideas and share expertise. Information shared represents the leading edge of aesthetic medicine around the world. Annual conferences and congresses are usually somewhat smaller and represent the national or regional highlights of aesthetic medicine. Both types of opportunities are important for the proficient aesthetic medical physician.

As president of the AAAM® I will always, to the best of my abilities, keep you informed about aesthetic medical advances and cutting edge conferences and trainings. If it's happening and important, you will be the first to know! You will also be kept aware of important trade shows and training venues, including conferences and workshops in specialty areas of aesthetic medicine. Visit the AAAM® web site often for training opportunities and breaking news.

The AAAM® is here to serve you. Keep in touch and let me hear from you about your interests and concerns.

Dr. Michel Delune
AAAM® President
