Event Details


One of the most exciting and growing trends in plastic surgery is fat grafting. 

Fat grafting has developed into more of a science with it’s versatile use as a filler, scar modulator and the discovery of stem cells and other factors in fat. 

There is ongoing research into fat grafting and it is now being used in multiple areas of the body. 

We have put together an array of new and exciting talent, new faces in plastic surgery , who will be talking about the history of fat grafting, the harvesting of fat, the physiology, as well as its use in the face breast and body. Breast Augmentation and reconstruction by fat grafting will be discussed and fat grafting instrumentation will be on display from the industry. 

Please join us at the Fat Grafting Symposium in Sydney and enjoy an exciting educational experience. 

The ISAPS Workshop precedes the ASAPS (Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) Annual Conference which will also be held at the Hilton Sydney. For more information about the ASAPS Annual Conference please go to

About Sydney

Sydney is Australia’s largest and most famous city.

It’s home to beautiful beaches, iconic buildings, historic landmarks, award-winning restaurants, and a vibrant culture.

From the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour to the serene tranquillity of Hyde Park, Sydney has something for everyone.


If it’s your first visit, head straight to Sydney Harbour. It’s one of the most photographed locations in the world, nothing compares with seeing the harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House with your own eyes. Take a stroll along Circular Quay and soak up the atmosphere, or catch a ferry to Cockatoo Island or Watsons Bay and enjoy the beauty of the harbour and its surroundings. As well as being a main transport hub, Circular Quay has some of Sydney’s best restaurants, including QuayAria Sydney and Cafe Sydney.

In the heart of Sydney’s CBD is the Queen Victoria Building,another must-see attraction. Dating back to the 1890s, this grand and beautiful building is one of the city’s premier shopping destinations. If a shopping mall is more your idea of shopping heaven then try Pitt Street Mall and Westfield, both in the city centre. Further South you’ll find Sydney’s Chinatown, with Paddys market and some great Chinese restaurants on offer.

Only a 10-minute stroll from the Sydney Town Hall, Darling Harbour is the perfect place to entertain the whole family, enjoy a delicious harbourside meal or experience Sydney’s energetic night-life. Darling Harbour is also where you’ll find the Chinese Garden of Friendship, the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

For a bird’s-eye view of Sydney, head to the summit of Sydney Tower Eye. From here, enjoy views stretching across the city to the Pacific Ocean and the Blue Mountains to the west. Thrillseekers should try the Sydney Skywalk experience, a moving, glass-floored viewing platform at the top of Sydney Tower Eye. Also at the top, the Sydney Tower Buffet offers banquet-style dining, with 360-degree views of the city as you enjoy a relaxing meal.
