Dr. Williams is the first African-American plastic surgeon to be appointed as a member of the board. The appointment was announced at the society's recent meeting in Chicago, IL. He will serve for at least one year and has hopes to continue on the board in an even greater capacity thereafter.

Dr. Williams is a graduate of Yale School of Medicine and Dartmouth College. After graduating with his medical doctorate, Williams was selected for the Yale University six-year internship and residency-training program in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Williams co-founded Kaiser Permanente's Central Valley plastic surgery department in California and pioneered a series of advanced reconstructive procedures.
He is an Expert Reviewer for the State of California. In addition to his leadership roles at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Williams is a member of The California Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Association of Academic Chairpersons of Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
