Meet Dr. Evans
''South-African born, Canadian and American trained, I feel very fortunate to now live and practice in the best place in the world.
I chose plastic surgery as a career because it not only deals with the abolishment of disease, but also reconstruction, restoration, and aesthetic considerations.
I believe in the highest quality patient care. It is my goal for you to be well-informed ahead of your procedure and meticulously cared for throughout your surgical experience."

Lefort II distraction with zygomatic repositioning versus Lefort III distraction: A comparison of surgical outcomes and complications
Oct 2021 - Journal of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery
Our study suggests that Lefort II distraction with zygomatic repositioning has an equivalent complication rate to Lefort III distraction, while allowing greater differential sagittal and vertical distraction of the central midface and appears to have a lower complication rate than that reported for segmental monobloc procedures. The specific differences in the LF2ZR complication profile have prompted an evolution of the technique to avoid eyelid incisions and to initiate activation earlier and at an increased rate. LF2ZR remains an appropriate option to treat the unique dysmorphology of the Apert and Pfeiffer midface.
Plastic vs. Cosmetic Surgeon?
In Canada, physicians, dentists, and naturopaths can all use the phrase 'cosmetic surgeon'. Only a successful MD surgical graduate of an accredited plastic surgery training program can use the stand-alone designation 'plastic surgeon', without any additional words, phrases, or modifications.
