MCSC May 2024 Newsletter

Happy Spring! Check out our spring special at the end of this newsletter.

Just as the Spring flowers are benefitting from all this rain, so too will your skin benefit from an added dose of moisture to help recover from the drying effects of winter. SkinMedica HA5 and Obagi Hydro-Drops are two great examples of ways to give your skin that extra moisture boost this spring. Book a consultation with Susane, our medical aesthetician, to discuss the best ways to hydrate your skin.

May is also Sun Awareness Month. The Canadian Dermatology Society encourages everyone to use sunscreen regularly and check their skin for new or changing moles.

In Clinic News

Did you know Dr. Weinberg was voted one of Toronto’s top doctors on the prestigious list published by the Bayview Post?  Not only is Dr. Weinberg renowned as a cosmetic surgeon, but he is also a skin cancer expert. If you have new or changing moles or other skin lesions, make sure you bring them to the attention of your doctor and get referred to Dr. Weinberg. A plastic surgeon is the best person to remove suspicious skin abnormalities with minimal scarring.

Both Dr. Weinberg and Dr. Schiffer also belong to AMNI, an exclusive organization that takes only the top aesthetic doctors in Canada as its members, so you can feel confident you’re getting expert care at MCSC.

Dr. Schiffer participated in a panel of leaders in headache medicine recently, put on by the makers of Nurtec, the latest addition to the headache medicine landscape in Canada. It’s only the most recent addition to the growing list of helpful options available for migraine treatment. If you have migraines, don’t suffer in silence. See your GP for help, and if needed, get a referral to see our headache neurologist.

Breast Reduction with Liposuction – Four Common Questions Answered


1. What Is Traditional Breast Reduction?

Traditional breast reduction is a surgical procedure in which large breasts are made smaller by the removal of fat, breast glandular tissue, and skin. This involves a horizontal incision underneath the breast, and a vertical incision from the bottom of the breast up to and around the nipple, a so called “anchor” incision. The nipple is repositioned (lifted), thus the breast is not only reduced, but patients effectively also have a breast lift.

2. Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?

The best candidates for breast reduction are those with large breasts who find them uncomfortable, particularly during activities like exercise. They also often have cosmetic concerns, as large breasts tend to become pendulous, and patients feel self-conscious about drooping, also called breast ptosis. For those patients who have back, neck and bra strap pain, the basic surgery is almost always covered under the Ontario Health Plan for Ontario residents. Conventional breast reduction surgeries with Dr. Weinberg are scheduled at Trillium Health Centre.

3. Why Combine Liposuction with Conventional Breast Reduction?

Liposuction is often recommended along with surgery primarily to remove what is referred to as the “tail” of the breast- the fatty part that extends into the axillae (arm pits). This will almost always give a superior cosmetic result. Unfortunately, liposuction is not covered under the Ontario Health Plan, and therefore must be paid out of pocket by the patient. Dr. Weinberg always encourages his patients to consider this decision carefully as their long-term satisfaction with the surgical result may be better if liposuction is carried out.

At MCSC we understand the extra cost can be a burden. We have deliberately kept costs for liposuction of the breast down in an effort to make it as affordable as possible for patients. We can also assist patients in applying for financing options such as Medicard. Breast reductions, together with liposuction, are scheduled at Dr. Weinberg’s private clinic and wait times can therefore be considerably shorter.

4. Can Breast Reduction Be Done with Liposuction Alone? 

For younger patients, especially those that have not yet breast fed, who do not have breast drooping or ptosis, and whose breasts are not extreme in size, it is now sometimes possible to achieve breast reduction with liposuction alone! In these patients the only incisions required are small openings to allow the liposuction cannula to be inserted such that breast fat can be removed.

Unlike conventional breast reduction in which patients are left with an anchor-shaped scar, there is minimal scarring, and much shorter recovery times. However, only very specific patients will be candidates for this form of breast reduction.

There must be sufficient fat to be removed. No glandular breast tissue or skin is removed in this type of procedure. Thus, if the excess breast size is due largely to glandular breast, liposuction is not an option. Also, in this procedure there is no “lifting” and repositioning of the nipple, thus people with peulous or drooping breasts would not be good candidates for liposuction-only breast reduction. The cost of this procedure is not covered under the provincial health plan and therefore must be paid by the patient.

      Hi Elaine Just checking in to make sure you obtained an appointment regarding IPL? Just wanted to let you known we don’t usually look after appointment scheduling through the newsletter, so that’s why things might have slipped through the cracks- We will honour the Dec deal for you if you are still interested!

    • Sandy says:

      Hello Carsta Thanks so much for your interest in Chin Liposuction at our clinic. The cost is typically $2250, though it can vary somewhat if someone has either a very small or very large amount of fat. Belkyra is also an option for treatment of fat under the chin.

      Hello G Thanks for your interest in injections at our clinic.
      Unfortunately we will not be able to contact you to update you about specials based on a reply to the newsletter alone. We do not have a mechanism to store your information via this field. If you sign up to receive our newsletters, you will receive them monthly, along with our specials! Hope that helps!

  • Nellie says:

    About your promotion above….how can the three IPL treatments be used by Feb 28 if they must be spaced apart at least 2 weeks to a month? Do you mean the first of 3 must be used by Feb 28?

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello Nellie Thanks for your question regarding IPL. Treatments every two weeks would allow 3 treatments over this time period. Having said that, we are usually somewhat flexible about scheduling for our specials, so if there was a good reason to stretch out the treatment dates, we try to accommodate. Due to Holiday closures, and a lot of belated interest in the IPL special, we are extending this promotion throughout January. If you are interested in IPL, by all means book a consultation appointment by calling us at 905-273-3045, or you can contact me at Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
