Dr. Karl Schwarz

Founder and Medical Director of the plastic surgery clinic at Clinique K

Distinct vision

Dr. Schwarz’s surgical philosophy goes far beyond aesthetics. Restoring and enhancing the body is an important step in strengthening self-image, which is essential to psychological wellbeing. Dr. Schwarz is motivated by the desire to create the kind of beauty on the outside that serves as a pillar for developing inner beauty.

Unique expertise

A deep sense of compassion, along with a desire to offer the best care possible, led Dr. Schwarz to focus his practice on the face and body surgeries, with a particular specialty of breast reconstruction for cancer patients. Dr. Schwarz is the only private post-cancer breast reconstruction surgeon in Canada. He understands that once the disease has been treated, restoring the patient’s appearance can go a long way in keeping spirits up throughout the healing process.

Personalized care

Dr. Karl Schwarz is aware that not all patients require a major surgical intervention. That is why his clinic offers complementary treatments, such as facial injections of wrinkle relaxers. The goal is to ensure that each patient receives personalized care that precisely meets their needs and expectations.

Stellar reputation

Throughout the years, Dr. Karl Schwarz not only founded and developed a state-of-the-art practice in cosmetic surgery, he also built a reputation for technical excellence and kindness towards his patients. It is therefore not surprising that he has been mentioned in more than 25 publications and that he is the recipient of numerous awards from the medical community. A respected expert in his field, he continues to train future plastic surgeons in advanced techniques. He is a certified member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
