Education & Training

Dr. Power completed her undergraduate degree with honors at Princeton University (Princeton, NJ, USA). She completed premedical courses while concentrating in Music and also achieved a Certificate in Musical Performance. Her fine technical skills as an Ivy League trained flutist and artistic background have translated into her plastic surgery practice. She then completed her MD and plastic surgery residency at the University of Western Ontario (London, ON). She was the first plastic surgery resident to enroll in the UWO Clinician Investigator Program and completed an MSc in Medical Biophysics during her surgical training. Having achieved board certification in Plastic Surgery (FRCSC, 2013), she moved to Toronto and completedtwo fellowships in Aesthetic Surgery and Trauma & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Toronto. She subsequently opened her private practice at the prestigious 199 Avenue Road in Yorkville and maintains a busy reconstructive practice with a focus on skin cancer.

"The biggest hurdle for a lot of women is coming in for the consultation. Many do not want to appear vain or they feel guilty about finally spending money on themselves."

– DR. STEPHANIE POWER
