Breast Masters Symposium 2017 2018-02-21T10:24:02+00:00


It is with great excitement that I wish to invite you to register for the inaugural Breast Masters Symposium, 18-20 October 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

Aesthetic surgery of the breast is the single most commonly practiced area of surgery by plastic surgeons worldwide. In Australia alone, the number of women receiving breast implants has skyrocketed in the last decade from 5,000 per year in 2005, to 45,000 per year in 2015.

In an area where education and training has often been industry lead, our aim is to start an independent, advanced aesthetic symposium that is run by Specialist Plastic Surgeons who specialise in breast surgery, with free exchange of information and research in order to maintain the very best standards in the world.

Symposium highlights include:

  • The first Australasian plastic surgery Symposium that is focussed specifically on aesthetic surgery of the breast
  • Workshop format outlining the fine technical aspects of the field as well as the latest product research
  • Scientific Partner – Australasian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS)
  • Endorsed by the Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR), the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), & the New Zealand Association of Plastic Surgeons (NZAPS)
  • Workshops for the beginner as well as the very advanced practitioner
  • Essential for all plastic surgeons with any interest in breast aesthetics
  • Operative videos and multiple techniques presented by a very experienced local and international faculty
  • Inaugural event guest Professor, Per Hedén
  • Social functions highlighting the spectacular beauty of Sydney Harbour

On behalf of the local faculty and myself we look forward to welcoming you to the inaugural Breast Masters Symposium in Sydney.
