Members of Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons

Who can become a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons?

Membership criteria are stringent and by invitation only. Members of ASPS are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).

FRACS means Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. The distinction is only awarded to specialist surgeons who have completed a minimum of 12 years medical and surgical education, including at least 5 years of specialist postgraduate training. A Specialist Plastic Surgeon with the letters “FRACS” appearing after his or her name is accredited to perform invasive reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.

Specialist Plastic Surgeons are accredited by the Commonwealth Government of Australia, through the Australian Medical Council, to perform all reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.
