The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Appoints Albany Facial Plastic Surgeon Edwin Williams, MD as 2015-2016 President
Date:9/29/2015

The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) is pleased to announce that Edwin Williams, III, MD, FACS, has been elected President of the organization and will serve the 2015-2016 year term, taking office in October 2015. He is the founder of Williams Center Plastic Surgery Specialists located in Latham,New York where he’s dedicated to his patients, emphasizing safety, treatment outcomes and improving lives.

The AAFPRS is the world’s largest specialty association for facial plastic surgery. The organization seeks to educate medial professionals, government and the general public about facial plastic surgery as a specialty that requires intensive training and competence, embodies high ethical standards, artistic ideals, commitment to humanitarian service and a desire to enhance the quality of human life.

“I am honored to follow my esteemed colleague, outgoing president Dr. Stephen S. Park, and hope to make as big of a difference to the AAFPRS as he did during his tenure,” says Dr. Williams. “My primary goal as President is to help our members differentiate themselves from less qualified providers of aesthetic services. With the implementation of the affordable care act, the healthcare landscape is rapidly changing and we can expect an increasing number of providers entering what they consider a more profitable area of medicine.”

Dr. Williams is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology and he is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is also a Diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners. Dr. Williams is actively involved in Continuing Medical Education and has qualified for the American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award.

Dr. Williams is dedicated to assisting other facial plastic surgeons during their education. He has participated as a fellowship director of the AAFPRS fellowship program since 1999. During his tenure, he has fostered the surgical expertise of nine facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

As AAFPRS President, Dr. Williams will also closely collaborate with other "core specialties" in the cosmetic surgery field, and include the continued development of AAFPRS’ outstanding educational programs including the online version, partnering with industry on research efforts, and continual efforts to explore and add value to existing and loyal members of the AAFPRS.
