Dr. Ali Esmail is Winnipeg’s first and only fellowship trained Facial Plastic Surgeon. Unlike a ‘general plastic surgeon’, Dr Esmail has 6 years of specialization training that focused only on the neck, up. Facial plastic surgery requires extreme attention to detail, an eye for symmetry and a drive for perfection. When it comes to someone’s face there is no room for error, you want someone whose sole focus is achieving those results. It is those attributes that originally attracted Dr. Esmail to the field of facial plastic surgery. His obsessive attention to detail and keen eye for aesthetic symmetry is what makes him one of the most exciting and top young surgeons in the field.
Dr. Esmail loves his patients and his patients love him back, as he explains: “One of my favorite parts of the job is meeting and helping wonderful people achieve their cosmetic goals each day. My staff is often on me about spending too much time with each patient!”
