Dr. Michael J. Weinberg is a renowned Royal College-certified Plastic Surgeon serving Toronto area patients for 15 years. Since 2005 he's served as Division Head of Plastic Surgery at Trillium Health Centre, which is affiliated with the University of Toronto and is one of the largest teaching hospitals in the province. In that role he is actively involved teaching medical students and plastic surgery residents, and in research.
Dr. Weinberg is also the founder of the Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Clinic, a prestigious, CAAASF-accredited private surgical facility, performing all surgeries at the clinic without assistance from students or residents. One of his areas of greatest interest is breast augmentation. Toronto patients can also see Dr. Weinberg at his downtown location, Toronto Plastic Surgery Clinic, conveniently located steps from Yorkville.
For Dr. Weinberg, breast surgery is a collaborative process between patient and surgeon. Helping his patients achieve their personal cosmetic goals is his greatest satisfaction. He provides an in-depth preoperative consultation with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and express concerns. Dedicated and compassionate, he has hand-picked a warm and informative staff who will ensure you feel completely comfortable and at ease.
Dr. Weinberg has extensive expertise and experience in breast surgery, both reconstructive and cosmetic, and has performed more than a thousand breast surgeries in recent years. He uses both saline and the newer cohesive gel implants, and employs a variety of techniques. He uses transaxillary, inframammary, or periareolar incisions, customized to his patients’ individual needs to produce the most natural shape and aesthetic appearance. Breast Surgery, like most cosmetic procedures, requires a keen aesthetic sense and Dr. Weinberg is particularly adept at assessing not only the best surgical procedure, but also which implant shape and size will yield the best possible result for each of his patients. Dr. Weinberg was also one of the first pioneering breast surgeons in Ontario to introduce combination surgeries, or “Mommy Makeovers”, to Canadian patients.

Most of Dr. Weinberg’s patients – including those in Toronto -- have their breast augmentation procedure in his surgical clinic, enjoying the privacy, personal attention and charming atmosphere that only a private facility can provide. At the same time they know their surgery and post op care will be carried out in the safest of circumstances, with state of the art equipment and with the help of highly trained, Board Certified anesthetists and registered nurses who are also on staff at Trillium Health Centre. Because Dr. Weinberg is Division Head of Plastic Surgery at Trillium, patients have the flexibility of choosing to have their surgery in hospital if they prefer.
