The Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery (JPRAS) is BAPRAS' journal, dedicated to publishing original research, educational material and information on all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including the surgery of appearance, and to promoting good practice in these disciplines.
The journal presents the latest surgical procedures with audit and outcome studies of new and established techniques in plastic surgery including: cleft lip and palate and other head and neck surgery, hand surgery, lower limb trauma, burns, skin cancer, breast surgery and aesthetic surgery.

The journal has up-to-date papers, comprehensive review articles, letters to the editor and book reviews on all aspects of plastic surgery and related basic sciences.

JPRAS was formerly known as the British Journal of Plastic Surgery. The title change in 2006 was necessary to reflect its international audience and content.
