PIONEERING WOMEN IN

RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY

SkinCeuticals has partnered with ReSurge International to advance first-generation women reconstructive surgeons in underserved parts of the world. Together, we created the Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery (PWRS) program to support these women through surgical training, leadership development, and mentorship networking.

Through this initiative, we hope to change the landscape for women surgeons worldwide, enabling them to advance their careers and transform the lives of those in need of life-changing surgical care.

We support her power to become a surgeon, a leader, a mentor, a force…a change in the world.

SHE IS THE DIFFERENCE. #WomenSurgeOn


THE NEED FOR
SURGICAL CARE

For people in underserved countries who suffer from burn injuries or congenital conditions, a change in their appearance has the power to transform their lives – enabling them to fully participate in their communities, attend school, and provide for their families.

Today 5 billion people worldwide lack access to safe, timely surgical care. Today, there are only three female surgeons for every 1 million people in low-income countries, often due to lack of equal access to significant technical training or obstacles to gaining acceptance in their field.

SkinCeuticals believes women surgeons in underserved communities have the power to elevate the status quo and help those in need of life-changing surgical care. SkinCeuticals and ReSurge International aim to correct this imbalance by supporting women reconstructive surgeons in underserved parts of the world through leadership, technical training, and mentorship.
