2022 44th ASAPS Annual Conference

14-16 October 2022 | Hotel Chadstone

ASAPS has been one of the peak bodies for cosmetic surgery in Australia and New Zealand for over 40 years.  ASAPS’ inception came from the need to offer continuing education to specialist plastic surgeons with an aesthetic surgery interest. Our Society has grown from strength to strength because of our continued commitment to excellence in education and bringing the ASAPS family together.

The benefits of learning and supporting each other were most evident in the past year. This year’s conference will cater broadly offering lectures in facial, body and breast surgery.

Business Management Stream
Whilst a confident, experienced surgeon is the key to happy patients, working together with a slick, well educated team guarantees success.
Our practice management sessions will allow your team to gain efficiency insights and will run in parallel with the conference.
This session is aimed at equipping Practice Managers with the tools and information to grow and sustain their practices.

Who can attend?
The ASAPS Annual Conference is held exclusively for Specialist Plastic Surgeons and their practice staff.

We hope you can take up this wonderful opportunity to join us in Melbourne. We hope to see you and your staff at ASAPS 2022.

Scientific Program




January 31 – Abstracts open
June 9 – Abstract submissions deadline
June 16 – Successful authors will be notified of outcome

Abstract Submissions

Abstracts from Consultants, Surgical Trainees and Aspirants are invited. There is a vast amount of untapped experience and knowledge within our membership base and we encourage you to share your wisdom, research and findings by submitting abstracts which will potentially enhance the topics our guests are presenting. These sessions have become both entertaining and informative, and we look forward to your contribution. Please note, that in previous meetings we have been able to include most of the submitted presentations, however, the number of papers submitted has increased each year and we are unable to accept all of the free papers offered.

Submissions must conform to the Abstract Preparation Guidelines as outlined below. Abstracts which do not comply with the rules of submission or layout guidelines, will be declined and returned to the author. Abstracts without results (or with “results pending”, “results to be discussed” or similar) will not be considered for presentation.

Presentations will be selected based on scientific merit, clinical merit and topicality. There may be only one presenting author, but multiple authors may be listed on the submission. Authors must disclose if their abstract has been previously submitted, published or presented. You will be required to indicate your disclosures and whether the presentation is industry supported or initiated. Where applicable, all studies must have been approved by institutional committees on ethics of experimental and human/animal investigations.

Submission of an abstract acknowledges your acceptance for the abstract to be published in all printed material of the 2022 ASAPS Annual meeting. Only abstracts from authors who have paid their registration fees will be scheduled for presentation and included in the conference handbook.

Submission Guidelines

Oral Presentations

ASAPS and NZAPS Full Members / FRACS equivalent: Oral presentations are usually 15 minutes or as appropriate for the program


Unfortunately, there is no availability for research posters this year.

Audiovisual Equipment

Each lecture room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a data projector, laptop, lectern and microphone. Multimedia clips should be embedded in your slides. Other audiovisual aids, such as overhead projectors, are not available.

All presentations must be digital in either PowerPoint or Keynote. Speakers will be required to bring their presentations on a USB stick with them to the conference. Your presentation must be given to the audio-visual team at least four (4) hours prior to the start of the session in which you are presenting. It is disruptive to be changing computer connections at the lectern so presenting on your own laptop is not permitted.


All abstracts are to be submitted via the on-line submission process on the conference website. Submission by email, fax or post will not be accepted.Do NOT include symbols, tables, pictures or diagrams within the ‘content’ of your abstract.

Selection and Notification

All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Joint Scientific Meeting Committee. Presenting authors will be notified after the closing date regarding the status of their abstract. All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fees should they be selected. All presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

* Please note that all successful delegates presenting abstracts are required to register under the relevant delegate category for the event. A discounted early bird code will be provided to you upon approval of your abstract which will allow you to register at the discounted rate regardless of your registration date. 

Abstract Preparation

In previous meetings, we have been able to include most submitted presentations however the number of papers submitted has increased and we are reducing the number of free papers accepted. This year we will be much stricter on the acceptance of papers.

You will be required to indicate your disclosures and whether the presentation is industry supported or initiated. Submitted abstracts will be scrutinised.

Papers not complying with this requirement will not be accepted or removed from the program if not complying.
