Dr. Chris Thomson, BSP, MD, FRCSC

Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Thomson established his private cosmetic surgery practice in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 2008. In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Thomson is also known for his skill in major reconstructive surgery and complex hand surgery. His background includes involvement with the popularization of the wide awake hand surgery.

Educated in Canada and the United States, Dr. Thomson received his medical degree and pharmacy degree with Great Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan.

After completing a five-year residency in plastic surgery at Dalhousie University in Halifax, he pursued advanced subspecialty fellowship training in hand and micro vascular surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. UAB is considered one of the leading schools in academic medicine in the United States. Dr. Thomson has written for a number of peer-reviewed publications and presented at national and international plastic surgery conferences.

Dr. Thomson is fully Certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada as a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.

Dr. Thomson was pleased to return home to his alma mater, the University of Saskatchewan, where he is a teacher, mentor and faculty member in the College of Medicine, Division of Plastic Surgery. Please note that Dr. Thomson does all his own cosmetic surgery and his cosmetic surgery practice is completely separate from his affiliation with the University where he holds an appointment as Clinical Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Thomson knows that the decision to have surgery is a difficult one, and wishes to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident throughout the process and after. With meticulous attention to detail, he will develop an individualized plan to meet your needs. His care and attention extends well beyond the operating room.

Process

Pre and Post Cosmetic Surgery

The first step is to contact Dr. Thomson's office to book a free consultation with a plastic surgery nurse. You do not need a referral from a doctor to make this appointment. After this consultation, if you wish to move forward, an appointment can be arranged for a consultation with Dr. Thomson.

Please bring your provincial health card and a list of any medications you are taking to this meeting.

Your surgery will be performed, usually within two months, in a private, state-of-the art surgical centre. The centre’s friendly, professional staff have created an environment that is both highly efficient and caring.

Dr. Thomson will meet with you on the day of your surgery before you go to the operating room. After the surgery, you will wake up in the recovery area and be discharged once you are stable and able to follow instructions.

Dr. Thomson will usually see you again in the morning, so if you are from out of town you will need to spend the night in a hotel. Follow up appointments will be arranged for you through his office in the weeks to come. After that, you are welcome to return at any time.

Throughout the process, your comfort, safety and well-being are our highest priorities. If, at any time, there’s something we can do to make you more comfortable, please do not hesitate to let us know. Our staff take a personal interest in our patients and will be very happy to help you.

Fees

The initial consultation fee of $150.00 is due two weeks before the consultation appointment. This fee will be applied as a credit to your cosmetic surgery fee.

After this first meeting, once Dr. Thomson has developed your individualized surgery plan, we will provide a surgery quote. The quote, valid for one year, includes all surgery, operating room and anaesthesia fees. Along with the quote, you will receive consent documents for your signature. When you return the consent documents we will schedule a second meeting, at no charge, with Dr. Thomson and he will review the surgical plan with you.

In order to reserve a surgical date, we require a deposit. The balance of the surgery fees are due two weeks before the surgery appointment.

We accept payment by cash, cheque, debit, visa, mastercard, and discovery card.
