Big week ahead. Two year project finally coming out publicly.
At this year's 40th annual @asapsau meeting we're launching a new funding model to not only help educate the public on the incredible work of @interplastanz but also on what makes plastic surgery such a vital speciality to communities all over the world. Believe it or not, there's alot more to it than breast augmentation... The funds raised will go directly to programmes covering the 17 countries they service.
Some scenes from a longer video showcasing a recent surgical and training program to Mongolia in August.

#repost from @interplastanz
Last week our surgical team visiting Vanimo in PNG operated on Lemek, who was severely burned in a childhood accident. He had to travel from a remote community with the help of our partner, PanAust, to reach our team.
These photos show Lemek in recovery, the first one after his initial round of surgery on his neck scars. The second photo is after the next round of surgery on his right hand, with Professor Mark Ashton who operated on him, along with PNG’s only plastics trainee Dr Akule Danlop, and general surgeon Dr Stanley Bita.
As you can see from the photo of Lemek snapping our volunteer photographer, Woodrow Wilson, he already had significant movement in his neck and arm immediately following the first surgery.
Look through our recent photos to find out more about Lemek's story.
What a wonderful outcome for this young man. Together we’re #changingfutures for people like Lemek.

In rural Papua New Guinea this week filming the incredible work of @interplastanz with @ashtonplasticsurgery. Beautiful people presenting cases we don't see in Australia, and further illustrates the tyranny of distance to medical care that they face.
Stay tuned the next week for highlights.

I believe history will judge this government poorly on a range of issues, inequality being one.

Mined 24 hours a day
After many years of thinking, I finally went full retard.
Patient in Mongolia, Murun hospital.
So much strength in her posture.
Parents patiently waiting for their children to be discharged from surgery.
Hospital seperated wards from waiting area by a door with a small window for parents to communicate who they were waiting for.
It's where I many hear the good news, but also the bad.

Emotional and beautiful presentation by Woodrow Wilson on the value of @interplastanz and how Plastic Surgeons can make a difference.
