A few years ago the idea was born to found a European Society for surgeons who specialize in rhinoplasty analog to the 1996 founded U.S. Rhinoplasty Society.
Therefore a group of nine surgeons (plastic surgeons and otorhinolaryngologists) from Europe founded in May 2011 the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe, is intended as a scientifical and educational platform for plastic surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and maxillofacial surgeons who are deeply committed to plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic nasal surgery.
The first formal congress was after the 20th Anniversary Advanced Course for Functional and Aesthetic Rhinoplasty in Stuttgart, Germany in April of 2012, at which the first President, Prof. Dr. med. Dr. med. habil Wolfgang Gubisch, presided.

1st Congress of the „Rhinoplasty Society of Europe“ in Stuttgart. Because the name „European Rhinoplasty Society“ had been patented by others in August 2011 we decided not to fight in front of the court, but changed the name into „Rhinoplasty Society of Europe“.

The constitution of the board demonstrates this society as an open one for all who are interested, independent of their speciality.
