Jo has been a Registered Nurse since 2003, in which time she has obtained an extensive background in acute medical and surgical nursing, specialising in plastics, orthopaedics and ear, nose and throat surgery. During this time Jo also travelled to West Timor as a part of a volunteer organisation to provide medical aid and assistance.
Jo joined the team at Adelaide Plastic Surgery in 2008, and is currently operating as the practice Clinical Nurse. She also works closely alongside our 8 surgeons, regularly assisting in the operating theatre and providing pre and post-operative patient care.
As well as her nursing responsibilities, Jo has developed a vast array of skills, ensuring that she is always up to date with the latest techniques in lasering, cosmetic injecting and MiraDry treatments.
Jo’s significant skill set is seen by her holistic approach to facial rejuvenation. By incorporating both laser and cosmetic injectables she can tailor a treatment plan unique to you, and help your skin reach its full potential. Jo has a special interest in creating natural results with cosmetic injectables, utilising injecting techniques that softly enhance and refresh facial features.

She is quick to ascertain her patients’ individual needs and, thanks to her personable approach, ensures patients feel comfortable and confident in their treatment.
Anthony graduated from Adelaide University in 1990 with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree with Honours. In 2002, he gained his Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in plastic and reconstructive surgery, before undertaking postgraduate training in hand and burns surgery as a fellow at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Previously, Anthony was a visiting medical specialist for the Department of Plastic Surgery at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, where he consulted in general plastic surgery, with a special interest in hand surgery and melanomas.
His focus today is his private practice, which is divided between Adelaide Plastic Surgery and Glenelg Community Hospital, where he provides a diverse range of plastic surgery procedures. He is especially drawn to patients with skin cancers, hand problems and burns, who can all benefit from his expertise.
Tim Edwards has been a specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeon since 1998, honing the craft he learned over ten years of postgraduate surgical training. Initially, this training started in South Australia’s major adult and paediatric hospitals, following on to the world-famous Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in the United Kingdom.
Tim credits his background in elite sport, where he competed in swimming, water polo, sailing and basketball at local, state and national representative level, for endowing him with a strong focus and belief in the importance of the team rather than the individual. This led him to become one of the founding surgeons of Adelaide Plastic Surgery, developing an experienced team of plastic surgeons, anaesthetists, medical and nursing professionals, and administrative staff, who all play their role in ensuring the highest level of patient care and safety.
Peter is a Specialist Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, who has trained in Australia, the United Kingdom and France to gain extensive qualifications.
He holds two general surgical fellowships (from the Royal College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland); two plastic surgery fellowships (from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons); and certification by the European Board of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. Peter also holds a postgraduate Diploma in Head and Neck Surgery from the University of South Paris and a Master of Surgery from the University of Adelaide.
At Adelaide Plastic Surgery, Peter provides all types of cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures. His sub-speciality interest lies in head and neck plastic surgery, and he established the first service in Adelaide dedicated to those with facial paralysis.
Jenny has a special interest in Melanoma, along with other cutaneous malignancies. Her clinical areas of interest also include head and neck reconstructive surgery, elective and emergency hand surgery, facial trauma, facial aesthetic, and body-contouring surgery.
She completed further postgraduate training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, concentrating on head and neck, trauma, sarcoma reconstruction and melanoma surgery.
In 2018 Jenny was awarded a prestigious Winston Churchill Trust Fellowship, and spent time at Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York and Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore observing lymphoedema, facial paralysis, trauma and head and neck cancer surgery.
Jia Miin is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon currently employed as a Staff Specialist at Flinders Medical Centre, along with her private practice at Adelaide Plastic Surgery. Her surgical work includes a wide range of procedures, from skin cancer surgery, trauma surgery, and hand surgery, to body contouring procedures, breast reconstruction, head and neck reconstruction, and other complex reconstructive procedures.
Jia Miin graduated from the University of Adelaide. Following her internship and resident years at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, she developed an interest in Breast Reconstructive surgery. After being awarded the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation Pink Ribbon Ball Scholarship, she went on to do a PhD in ‘Breast Reconstruction Outcomes’ with Associate Professor Nicola Dean at the Flinders Breast Reconstruction Unit back in 2009. During this time, she helped to establish the use of the Breast-Q for all patients being seen in that unit. The Breast-Q is a patient reported outcomes measure developed by the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Centre in New York and has become the gold standard in assessing patient outcomes following breast reconstruction surgery. Her thesis focused on what determines a good breast reconstruction outcome from a patient’s point of view (as opposed to a surgeon’s point of view). The findings from this work were very eye opening, and continue to form the basis of her practice today.
