Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons elects Dr David Morgan as new President

Sydney.  May 13, 2024:  The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) announces the election of Dr David Morgan as its new President.  Dr Morgan, an eminent plastic surgeon with a surgical career spanning more than two decades, brings a wealth of experience, expertise and vision to his new role.

With a strong commitment to excellence in patient care, education and advocacy, Dr Morgan has consistently demonstrated his dedication to advancing the field of plastic surgery in Australia and beyond.  As incoming President, he will lead The Society in its mission to maintain and provide the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity, professional surgical competence and skill, and innovation in plastic surgery.

On his election, Dr Morgan said: “I am honoured to be elected as President of ASPS.  Having being a member of ASPS’ Council in various roles for eight years I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with my colleagues to further improve the standards of our profession, while ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients.”

Based in Melbourne, Dr Morgan’s medical and surgical background encompasses a wide range of plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures. His particular interests are in cosmetic and functional breast surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, minor hand surgery, and the management of skin cancer and melanoma.

Throughout his career, he has taken an active interest and involvement in research, education and training contributing significantly to the advancement of plastic surgery both nationally and internationally.

He also maintains a keen interest in managing acute facial trauma and is currently the Head of the Faciomaxillary Surgery Unit at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne.

Dr Morgan continued: “My main goals as elected President of ASPS will be to continue the excellent work of my predecessor Dr Nicola Dean, in advocating for our specialty as a reasoned voice and subject matter expert in the area of cosmetic surgery; to overcome access issues for our members and their patients in the private hospital sector; and to highlight the incredible work that our members do across the breadth of plastic surgery, from post-cancer reconstruction, to delicate hand surgery, and major burns care.

“I also plan to focus on initiatives that promote education and professional development among ASPS members, foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the medical and surgical communities and advocate for government policies that prioritise patient safety and access to quality care.

Outgoing President Dr Nicola Dean said: “I have every confidence that David will do a great job as ASPS’ next President and will continue to strengthen our position as a leading authority in plastic surgery advocating for the highest standards of patient care and professional practice.”

Dr David Morgan’s appointment is effective immediately.
