A Preview of Future Beauty: Canada's First Plastic Surgeon to Offer 3D Surgical Preview

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 30, 2010) -

Using cutting-edge technology exclusive to his practice to maximize patient-doctor communication, Toronto-based Dr. Cory S. Goldberg is revolutionizing how Canadians see plastic surgery. The Vectra 3D makes it possible for Dr. Goldberg to give patients a true-to-life preview to the potential outcome of desired surgeries.

"100 per cent of my patients ask, 'What will I look like?'" says Goldberg. "Now, I can eliminate the guesswork and offer peace of mind in a scenario that's often overcome with insecurity and fear of the unknown."

Thanks to the Vectra 3D Sculptor and camera — a revolutionary advance in three-dimensional photography that utilizes six 12 megapixel cameras, four simultaneous flashes on three camera towers to create a 36 megapixel image in only three milliseconds —Goldberg's patients can preview the expected results of a variety of prospective procedures.

"No other surgeon has access to this full body imaging technology in Canada," says Goldberg, "and until now Canadian patients undergoing a procedure like breast augmentation surgery could only guess at what their changed figure might look like by trying on weighted and sized bras under their clothing. Now I can give them a post-surgical preview to see what different sizes might look like in their own skin and from various life-inspired perspectives."

A PASSION FOR SCULPTING, AN OBLIGATION TO CHILDREN

For this Royal College certified Plastic Surgeon, improving a patient's self-image isn't just a livelihood. It's a way of life, the privilege that accompanies nearly two decades of education and the most modern medical training. "I realized early that I enjoy and have an aptitude for 3-dimensional problem solving and sculpting," recalls Dr. Goldberg who carves wood sculptures in his spare time, "a skill that I apply on a daily basis to help meet the emotional and physical needs of my patients."

A Medical Degree and Masters of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering are just the beginnings of an expansive resume that includes licensing in both Ontario and California, memberships with both the Canadian and American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and sub-specialty fellowship training in Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery. Believing that plastic surgery is not an indulgence of vanity but a solution to patient insecurities and physical abnormalities that can inhibit some of the most routine parts of life, Goldberg believes it is his duty to help improve the lives of his patients.

This belief extends beyond the cosmetic nature of plastic surgery and has drawn Goldberg to volunteering his time and expertise to benefit the global community. He is a committed volunteer surgeon of the global non-profit organization Operation Smile, a medical charity providing free surgery to children born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities—all of which can critically compromise basic functions like eating, communicating and smiling. His most recent mission landed him in Cambodia where he and a team of surgeons and other volunteers setup a medical facility to screen and operate on children who would otherwise suffer their afflictions for the rest of their lives.

"In eight days, I personally performed 30 procedures, contributing to a total mission of 140 surgeries. There were no breaks. No rescheduling. This was the only chance most of those kids would ever have at a normal life, so for me, volunteering isn't a choice. It's an obligation."

Goldberg's proficiency with craniofacial surgeries has attracted the attention of Toronto's SickKids Hospital, an internationally renowned hospital that has enlisted his services as a satellite referral doctor. And, while he awaits an upcoming Operation Smile mission to the city of Aswan in Egypt this spring, Goldberg applies his expertise to the areas of craniofacial surgeries, breast augmentation and rhinoplasty here in Canada. His proficiency in rhinoplasty, a surgery that demands precision and symmetry like no other, has earned him a trusted reputation and draws referrals from plastic surgeons in Western Ontario. The demand for his services has also earned him spots in ORs in Mississauga and Waterloo to service patients as far reaching as Sault Saint Marie and west to London.

About the practice

Dr. Goldberg and his team work out of his primary practice in Toronto's Trillium Health Center. There are more than 20 procedures offered at the CAAASF-approved facilities, which operates on a paperless mandate, saving about 265 lbs of paper annually. (That's the equivalent of an 8-foot high stack of paper.) He also operates out of McLean Clinic in Mississauga and The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Waterloo.
