We’re so pleased to welcome back Dr. Stephanie Ma. 

Dr. Stephanie Ma is a central part of our collaborative team of RCPSC-certified plastic surgeons.

Our practice has always been collaborative, with every team member bringing something unique and important to the table.


Let’s learn more about Dr. Ma.

A wealth of experience and credentials

Advanced surgical training, an exemplary education, and proven experience are all important factors when you’re choosing a surgeon. Dr. Ma first received a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy at McGill University before earning her medical degree at the same prestigious university in her hometown of Montreal. She then completed a comprehensive and rigorous 5-year plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at McMaster University in Hamilton.

Following her residency, Dr. Ma further honed her surgical expertise with international fellowships in both Brazil and Spain. Her additional training at the internationally-renowned Ivo Pitanguy Institute in Rio de Janeiro encompassed the breadth of cosmetic surgery as well as complex reconstructive procedures, while the latter fellowship at Hospital de la Santa Creu I Sant Pau in Barcelona focused on advanced breast reconstruction and microsurgery techniques.

This experience all preceded her legacy of exceptional surgical work here at The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Waterloo, where she has skillfully performed procedures including cosmetic or reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring and facial rejuvenation, and more.

Compassionate, personalized care

The best surgeons offer more than great results and expertise; they invest in each patient to create an experience that allows you to feel supported, heard, and led through the best surgical experience possible. Dr. Ma offers compassionate, engaged care that allows each patient to be a central part of their surgical plan from start to finish. You’re not a number here, you’re an honoured guest and a patient who deserves the best communication and care from the moment you first connect with our clinic.

Perspective and empathy

Selecting a surgeon for your procedure is a personal, intentional choice that is based on your own goals and comfort level. Many women appreciate the unique perspective a female surgeon can offer; especially for cosmetic or surgical breast procedures. Dr. Ma can offer insight into your goals and help you set a realistic surgical plan that lets you feel like your best self with results you can enjoy for years to come.

A brilliant track record

A picture is worth a thousand words, and the Before + After images from our surgeons speak just as clearly as our rave reviews. She has performed hundreds of successful surgeries with natural, beautiful outcomes and offers her services to a community of happy patients enjoying their post-surgical results.
