Dr. Waqqas Jalil is a highly trained plastic surgeon with education, expertise, and experience in reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery. He had the great privilege of being trained in both Canada and the United States; an opportunity that allowed him access to world class education, techniques, and innovations.
Dr. Jalil began his medical education at the University of Saskatchewan, where he spent four years and graduated with honours. Shortly thereafter, he completed an intensive plastic surgery residency training program through the University of Manitoba. It was during this residency training that Dr. Jalil developed his passion for breast reconstruction and aesthetic surgery.
This passion took him to New York City where he was accepted into the prestigious Lenox Hill Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Fellowship Program for Breast Reconstruction and Aesthetics. This further sub-specialization provided Dr. Jalil with the opportunity to work and train with some of the most skilled aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons in the world. While there, he was able to refine his techniques and skills while also expanding upon the latest, most advanced plastic surgery procedures. Upon completion of his fellowship, Dr. Jalil was recruited back to Toronto where he was brought on at North York General Hospital, specializing in the reconstruction of oncological defects with an expertise in breast reconstruction and skin cancer treatments.
In addition to his surgical practice at La Fontaine Cosmetic Surgery Centre, Dr. Jalil stays active academically in both research and teaching at the University of Toronto. Outside of work, Dr. Jalil enjoys staying active with running and biking, attending sporting events (Go Raptors!) and pretty much anything related to food – make sure to give him any recommendations for new eateries in the area when you come in for a consultation!
