After two extremely successful events on the Gold Coast, the Plastic Surgery Congress (PSC) 2013 moves to cosmopolitan Melbourne. The Congress returns with high quality content and presentations of world’s best practice in Plastic Surgery. It is designed to facilitate extensive networking with its comprehensive program consisting of pre-Congress symposia, exclusive cadaver workshops, four days of Congress and a spectacular Gala Dinner.
Day 1 - Congress Opens (24 April 2013)
Day 1 of the PSC 2013 presents a confluence of distinguished international and domestic speakers. The day has a distinct cranio maxillo and facial focus and will cover a range of aesthetic and reconstructive topics. Concurrent sessions on breast reconstruction and augmentation will run alongside the CMF program, focusing on current practices, new knowledge and achieving excellence. The day will conclude with the spectacular Gala Dinner.
Day 2 of Congress (25 April 2013)
Day 2 of the PSC begins with the Global Leadership Forum. Attendees are by invitation only. At 9:00am, an inter-denominational ANZAC Day Ceremony will take place to commemorate our fallen soldiers. The Ceremony will be facilitated by Hugh Bartholomeusz, RFD, MBBS, FRACS
The academic program opens with the distinguished Foundation BK Rank Lecture by Julian Pribaz on Experiences with Face Transplantation. Sessions will continue to have a strong facial focus and include a range of topics on state of the art CMF surgery and reconstruction.

Day 4 of Congress (half day, 27 April 2013)
The half-day program on day 4 of the PSC has an intensive focus on the future of CMF trauma reconstruction. A concurrent session on the future of breast augmentation, will also be offered.
ANZAC Day Commemoration
ASPS and NZAPS have come together, in the spirit of ANZAC, to commemorate and honour those who served our countries in times of war. ANZAC Day is a time for national reflection, and as a Specialty, we not only remember those who have fallen, but also those who contributed to the medical and scientific advancement of Plastic Surgery during and after the two World Wars. The reconstructive surgery required to treat serious head and facial injuries of ex-servicemen during the First World War propelled Plastic Surgery as a Specialty, including its aesthetic approach to treatment. Shortly after the Second World War, several societies and sections of Plastic Surgery were formed, and in Australia and New Zealand, surgeons began working full time in the Specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The PSC Organising Committee is pleased to have Air Vice-Marshall Hugh Bartholomeusz OAM, Surgeon General of the Australian Defence Force Reserves, coordinate a special commemorative event for ANZAC Day.
