Dr. Plant grew up in Toronto and went to the University of Waterloo for his undergraduate studies. After scoring in the 99th percentile on his MCATs, Dr. Plant was accepted early to the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario. During medical school, Dr. Plant wrote and published several journal articles, including a groundbreaking paper describing a one-stage technique for breast reconstruction after cancer, the first of its kind in Canada.
Dr. Plant then went on to complete his specialty training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Toronto. As a resident, Dr. Plant was widely known for having “great hands” and an obsessive attention to detail. He performed several research studies and won multiple recognition awards for excellence in resident research. His research has been presented at multiple local and national conferences and has been published (and continues to be published) in major plastic surgery and medical education journals.
Dr. Plant decided to become a plastic surgeon because it combined his interest and aptitude for science with his artistic abilities and obsession with fine details. In particular, Dr. Plant loves the creative flexibility and artistic approach that plastic surgery allows him to bring to the table. Rather than following a step-by-step surgical guide, plastic surgery allows him to develop a highly customized plan that will get the best individual outcome for the patient.
He believes developing a relationship with his patients is an important first step. “I enjoy talking with my patients and making them laugh to put them at ease during the consultation at my offices in Toronto. I like getting to know each person and why this procedure is so important to them,” Dr. Plant said.
He takes a custom, individualized approach to plastic surgery, and gives intense focus to every procedure. Dr. Plant looks at what will be the best fit for the patient and what will complement their current features to make them look and feel their best.
To bring the best results, he develops a custom tailored plan for each individual patient. “It’s your life and your experiences that make up who you are. I help improve what’s there – what’s already great. My goal is to help you achieve your best self and look amazing,” Dr. Plant said.
