"The artistic result, the result most pleasing both immediately and over time, is the result that most closely follows naturally occurring beauty, rather than a trend or an ideal in the patient’s vision."

Special Focus - Facial Cosmetic Surgery

While Dr. Bell performs a wide variety of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures, he is well-known for specializing in facial plastic surgery including brow lift, rhinoplasty, and facelift at which he is considered to be one of Canada's most highly regarded specialists. This area of cosmetic surgery demands both a highly personal and highly public level of skill, nuance, artistic observation -- and most importantly, insightful dialog with the patient, from whom Dr. Bell receives the goals of the procedure.

His patients have a deep regard for his wise perspective, and appreciate his measured and thoughtful manner.
