About ASPS

Founded in 1970, the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons Inc (ASPS) is the oldest and largest peak body for Specialist Plastic Surgeons (both reconstructive and cosmetic). We represent 93% of Specialist Plastic Surgeons in Australia. Our main role is to protect the integrity of plastic surgery as a specialty. Our mission is to provide the highest quality plastic surgery care to all Australians by:

  • Administering the AMC accredited Surgical Education and Training (SET) Program for all Specialist Plastic Surgeons
  • Producing scientific conferences and courses
  • Upholding ethical and professional standards
  • Promoting public education about reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery procedures

Membership criteria are stringent. All ASPS members hold a specialist qualification from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) which is the only College for specialist surgical training accredited by both Australian and New Zealand Governments through the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and New Zealand Medical Council (NZMC), respectively. Members of ASPS have undertaken a minimum of 12 years medical and surgical education, including at least 5 years of specialist postgraduate training, and are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
