The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the world’s largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons, has named Monmouth Medical Center (MMC) plastic surgeon Gregory Greco, D.O., FACS, as its new president.

Dr. Greco, a resident of Sea Bright, served as the Board Vice President for Health Policy and Advocacy for ASPS for three years prior to his election last year as president-elect. Dr. Greco took office on Oct. 30 in Boston during Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2022, the society’s annual scientific meeting. He will serve as president of the society for one year.

“It is an honor to lead ASPS during this era of technology and innovation,” says Dr. Greco. “Looking ahead to the next chapter for both plastic surgery and ASPS, our foundational commitment to improving patient outcomes by member surgeons around the globe remains as vital as ever before.”

Representing more than 7,000 physician members, the ASPS comprises more than 94 percent of all boardcertified plastic surgeons in the U.S. Founded in 1931, the society represents physicians certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Dr. Greco has served as chief of the Monmouth Medical Center Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for nearly 12 years, and is the MMC general surgery program director as well as the assistant program director for the General Surgery Program at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Monmouth Medical Center’s teaching affiliate.

A dual board-certified plastic surgeon, he is a diplomate of both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He specializes in full body cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction.

Dr. Greco is a graduate of Adelphi University, and received his medical degree from The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. After completing his fiveyear general surgery training at Monmouth Medical Center, he went on to complete a three-year plastic surgery residency at The University of Illinois at Chicago.
