An innovative, annual international conference of the top aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons from around the globe, The Virgin Islands Workshop in Plastic Surgery is chaired and organized by Dr. Steven Ringler of the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery.
The Virgin Islands Workshop was originally founded by premier plastic surgeon and humanitarian, Dr. Ralph Blocksma in 1986 and is considered by many leading plastic surgeons to be one of the best annual plastic surgery conferences. Dr. Ringler was been responsible for the continuation of this outstanding workshop since 1993.
The long-term success of this conference is due to an open format that allowed Dr. Ringler to share innovative ideas, techniques and information with some of the best plastic surgeons from around the world in a relaxing, informal setting. Many of our current procedures, from the first MACS facelift to Ultherapy, CoolSculpting, and the IDEAL structured breast implant were first presented at the workshop.
“After a great run of 25 years, the Virgin Islands Workshop in Plastic Surgery was discontinued in 2012. Thank you for all of the support and friendship over the years; it’s been an honor. We will miss you.”
