Dr. Sliwin is a renowned plastic surgeon who has specialized in cosmetic surgery of the face and body for the last 22 years. Certified by The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada since 1986, Dr Sliwin is a member of the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Society of Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Plastic Surgery, the Ontario Medical Association and The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. He is the Medical Director of The Forest Hill Institute of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a fully accredited private surgical facility, and he is also on staff at The Scarborough General Hospital as an Attending Plastic Surgeon where he practices reconstructive plastic surgery. He graduated from University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine in 1980 and completed his specialty training in Plastic Surgery at the University of Toronto in 1985.
Dr. Sliwin offers both Saline and Cohesive Gel Breast Implants (also known as “gummy bear implants” because they contain a substance similar to that of a gummy bear when cut open). He advises Toronto patients on which implants will give them the desired appearance, and then it is up to the patient to decide which is best for them.
Dr. Sliwin performs all of the procedures personally, the Institute is not a training ground for students. Our medical team consists of a full roster of very skilled and caring nurses and 2 anesthetists, many who have worked along side of Dr. Sliwin for the last 15-22 years. At the private clinic, patients can comfortably recover in their own private room, on site, with nurses attending to their needs throughout their stay. While most of the surgeries are performed in his private clinic, they can also be scheduled at the Scarborough General Hospital.
The Forest Hill Institute of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is a successful referral-based clinic, which is the result of Dr. Sliwin’s efforts to ensure that each and every patient is 100% satisfied with their results. We look forward to meeting you. We can be reached at 416-785-7864 for more information and to schedule your private consultation.
