Ness began searching out of province for a surgeon with qualifications and skills to correct her problem, after being told there was no doctor capable of helping her locally. This is when she found Dr. Kris Conrad, a Toronto rhinoplasty and facelift specialist surgeon. They had a consultation a year ago, and Dr. Conrad performed her reconstructive and cosmetic nasal surgery.
“What he’s done for me is incredible,” Ness says. “In so many ways he’s given me my life back”. Dr. Conrad performed a three-and-a-half hour rhinoplasty operation to restore Ness’s normal appearance. “It isn’t only about the work, but his concern for his patients. He is an incredible and caring person,” says Ness. “This experience has renewed my faith in the medical profession because I know now that there are doctors out there who actually care.”
With the skyrocketing popularity of facial cosmetic surgery in recent years, one has to emphasize the importance of carefully selecting a dedicated, well-trained and talented facial cosmetic surgeon, specialized and certified in the facial area.
Dr. Conrad is a well-recognized surgeon and teacher with a long list of accomplishments. His original training was in Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery. This was extended by additional studies in facial plastic surgery, and he was certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He does not perform plastic surgery in any other area than the head and neck.
He has been practicing for more than 25 years and established the Nasal and Facial Plastic Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Toronto’s Yorkville area and in Richmond Hill 22 years ago. Dr. Conrad is an Associate Professor in the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Toronto. With so many commitments on the go, he still manages to maintain the dedication to his patients as his highest priority. His surgical Institute is known internationally and many surgeons seek the opportunity to visit it and watch Dr. Conrad operate three to four days a week. He also treats patients from across the country and from abroad.
