Thank you for visiting TOC’s website. As you know plastic and cosmetic surgery is a very popular enterprise, and many individuals will try to take advantage of this. Plastic surgeons are the only surgeons who are trained to perform cosmetic surgery on the entire body including the face, breast and body. To be certified as a plastic surgeon, a doctor has to complete five additional years of surgical training after medical school. The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada has been overseeing postgraduate medical education since 1929 and will only designate a “fellow” (FRCSC) if the plastic surgeon has reached the pinnacle of education, research and training. When considering cosmetic surgery, you should ensure that the doctor you are considering to perform your procedure is a plastic surgeon and is a FRCSC specifically in plastic surgery.
I believe that your outward appearance should be a reflection of how you feel on the inside. Cosmetic surgery affords you the option of making the two coincide.
Originally from the East Coast, Dr. Gallant completed his undergraduate training at l’Université de Moncton in New Brunswick, where he received his Diploma in Health Sciences (DSS). He went on to study medicine at l’Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec, where he completed his Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) graduating in 2005.
The ability to directly, and somewhat instantly, improve a patient’s quality of life was what brought Dr. Gallant to the world-renowned McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, where he underwent a five-year training program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. McGill has a rich Canadian history, being the first Faculty of Medicine in Canada and one of the first in North America. It has also been ranked first in Canada among medical-doctoral universities for the last 10 years by Maclean’s University Rankings. Dr. Gallant studied under Dr. H. Bruce Williams, C.M. who just recently received the Order of Canada for his contributions to the practice of plastic surgery, particularly for helping burn victims as well as young people with congenital abnormalities.
In addition to this, Dr. Gallant’s interest in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery brought him to continue his studies. He spent the following year working with some of the McGill experts in the field of breast surgery.
Dr. Gallant became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC) in plastic surgery after his training.
After briefly returning to his alma mater during his first year of practice, Dr. Gallant relocated with his family and established his practice in our nation’s capital, Ottawa, Ontario. Currently, Dr. Gallant is an associate at the Montfort Hospital, and he also lectures at the University of Ottawa where he mentors and teaches medical students, residents and future plastic surgeons.
Dr. Gallant is an active member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgery, the National Capital Society of Plastic Surgery, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and the Ontario Medical Association.
Dr. Gallant is involved in providing humanitarian aid. He works with the Canadian organization Team Broken Earth, which is committed to bringing aid to Haiti since the devastating earthquake in 2010. He travels with a team of medical specialists providing surgery to underprivileged adults and infants.
