The Plastics Practice Managers (PPM) group exists to help our industry share, support and shine!

The PPM is designed to give Practice Managers from Australasian Plastic Surgeons a new level of support to provide 5 star patient experiences.

We are passionate about sharing our best ideas, supporting our members and helping our industry shine.

The PPM now has over 115 practice and business managers as members from more than 90 clinics across the country (and NZ!), representing 115-plus aesthetically focused Plastic Surgeons. We are an incorporated non-profit entity and have 5 member Council to guide our activities.

In the last 4 years the PPM has hosted 5 major workshop events in Sydney and Melbourne for over 200 delegates. They were a fantastic success with 99% of delegates stating in their feedback that they came away with a clear action plan to do at least 5 things differently!

In 2016 we commenced electronic delivery of education and discussions, including webinars on social media and HR – by people who actually manage them in clinics like yours!



Foundation Membership of the PPM is open to Practice Managers from ASPS (the main industry body for Plastic Surgeons) clinics and only with the approval of your Plastic Surgeon. Foundation Membership is free but as we grow our services, we may charge a modest fee to cover costs as we will continue to be a non-profit group.

Becoming a PPM Foundation Member gives you:

  • Access to our private online community on Facebook.  This group currently consists of over 95 PPM members who are there to share ideas and industry news.
  • Priority access to our events
  • A say in the future direction of the PPM


Founded in 1970, the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons Inc (ASPS) is the peak body for Specialist Plastic Surgeons (both reconstructive and cosmetic). Our main role is to protect the integrity of plastic surgery as a specialty. Our mission is to provide the highest quality plastic surgery care to all Australians.

ASPS is proud to support the PPM.
