Our Mission & How We Achieve It


‘Proudly serving patients who seek an exceptional Plastic Surgery experience from Forest Hill, Rosedale, Lawrence Park, North York, Richmond Hill, Vaughan and all other neighbourhoods of the GTA’

Welcome to Yorkville Institute of Plastic Surgery. We are a full service Toronto Plastic Surgery practice located in the upscale Yorkville district.

We focus exclusively on Cosmetic Surgery, and nothing else. This means that our practice is sub-specialized in the branch of Plastic Surgery that deals with improving appearance. We do not practise other types of plastic surgery such as hand surgery, burn surgery, congenital abnormalities, microsurgery, or other reconstructive procedures. We believe that in order to excel in Cosmetic Surgery, it must be the only pursuit.

Our surgeon is Dr. Lawrence Tong. He is an American trained, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with close to 10 years of practice experience in the United States. In returning to his hometown, he brings his unique skills and amassed knowledge in Cosmetic Surgery to Toronto.

If you are interested in learning more about what we have to offer, please delve into our site, and find out about our Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Clinic. No physician referral is required.

We look forward to serving you.

Our Purpose Is Simple, But Not Simple To Accomplish

Our mission is to provide our clients with an extraordinary cosmetic surgery experience, from beginning to end …and beyond. Lawrence Tong, MD, FACS, FRCSC

It Starts With The Right Surgeon

Dr. Lawrence Tong is a double board-certified Plastic Surgeon with comprehensive American Plastic Surgical training, and years of Cosmetic Surgery experience in the United States. Compassionate and professional, he expertly offers a wide range services such as Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Eyelid Surgery, Rhinoplasty, Facelift, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and JUVÉDERM® to patients seeking cosmetic surgery in Toronto.

We Want You To Feel Like Our Only Job Is To Cater To You

Our staff is courteous, professional, and passionately dedicated to serving your needs and attaining your goals. They understand that patients are often anxious, and may have a lot on their minds, before and after their surgery. It’s our job to make your life easier by helping and assisting any way that we can.

Our Facility is Designed Specifically For the Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Patient.

Everything is planned to maximize your Convenience and Safety.

Your consultation, surgery, overnight stay, and follow-up visits are all conducted at one site: our Yorkville plastic surgery complex at 199 Avenue Road.

The building was carefully designed to incorporate a discreet back entrance off Pears Avenue, facing the natural splendor of Rasmden Park. Walk into the lobby, and be transported to a place of beauty and luxury. Our office is sumptuously decorated and exceptionally comfortable.

The CAAASF accredited surgical facility is an example of world-class technology and efficiency. It is arguably the premiere Cosmetic Surgery Operating Facility in Toronto, if not all of Canada. In fact, the foremost national conference of Canadian Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons (The Canadian Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) conducts its live surgical symposium in our facility, every four years. This past October 2010, we welcomed hundreds of surgeons from North America and around the world to view and demonstrate their craft at 199 Avenue Road.

Our overnight stay centre is available for you to be pampered, as you recover during your first night following surgery. Staffed by our specialized nurses, the centre was established for the comfort and convenience of cosmetic surgery patients in mind.

Are You Considering Cosmetic Plastic Surgery But Haven’t Found The Right Practice?

Maybe it has only been a short while since you started contemplating having plastic surgery, or maybe this is something you have been planning for years.

You deserve a practice that fulfills all of your requirements: world class facilities, experienced surgeon, professional staff, a commitment to patient safety, ethical principles, and most of all, excellence in surgical results.

We are a practice that understands how important a decision it is for you, and we are a practice that undertakes that responsibility as seriously as you do. Whether the concern is about your face, breasts, or body: make the choice that will finally bring your dreams closer to fruition. Choose Dr. Lawrence Tong and Yorkville Institute of Plastic Surgery.
