Rejuvenation Clinic

You eat well, exercise regularly and take care of yourself, inside and out. Good health is a gift worth protecting, but we can all use a little help to show our best face to the world. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the new False Creek Rejuvenation Clinic. The clinic offers a wide variety of medical-grade beauty treatments using only the highest quality brands and products.

You already know that we provide world-class care from highly qualified physicians, surgeons and medical professionals. Why would you trust your beauty and cosmetic treatments to anyone else?

Experience BeautiPHIcation

Our medical team applies a philosophy of beauty based on PHI – the golden ratio of harmonious proportion that occurs in nature, as well as great art, design and architecture. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, we use feature measurements and proportion analysis to create an individualized beauty plan designed specifically for you. After all, beauty is in the details.

Our wide range of non-surgical cosmetic options includes:

Skin care

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer variety of skin creams, injectable fillers, chemical peels and procedures now available, not to mention the number of people performing these treatments with questionable qualifications. Our medical team helps people of every age and skin type to navigate the world of skin care – with beautiful results.


Why is Botox® so revolutionary? It eliminates deep grooves, furrows and wrinkles to restore your natural, youthful appearance. Botox® treatment also reduces excessive sweating and muscle spasms, and can help to control migraine and tension headaches. There’s no downtime, and nothing to lose but those frustrating fine lines.

Lip Enhancement

Improve the fullness and definition of your lips with subtle, yet gratifying results. Our board certified plastic surgeons use semi-permanent dermal fillers including Restylane® to help you achieve a soft and natural fullness.

Eyelash Growth

Imagine life without mascara! Safe and simple Latisse® topical treatment grows your lashes longer, fuller and darker to put the spotlight on your gorgeous eyes. Even better? You can expect to see results after just a few weeks of regular application.

Chemical Peels

Non-surgical chemical peels can diminish blemishes and revitalize your skin – helping you to feel more vibrant, youthful and confident. Our skincare professionals will determine the right treatment for your skin type, including safe and effective Vitalize and TCA peels.

Non-surgical fat loss (CoolSculpting)

Even the most diligent gym-goers often have areas where stubborn fat just won’t go away. That’s why we’re happy to offer an innovative, non-surgical solution, called CoolSculpting. Developed by Harvard scientists and approved by Health Canada, CoolSculpting is a safe and proven way to reduce fat in specific areas – without needles, scars, diets, supplements or downtime. You’ll see results as early as three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic changes becoming noticeable after one to three months.

It’s time to LOVE the skin you’re in.

Our experienced, medical team is here to help you look and feel amazing.

Book your face-to-face consultation at our new rejuvenation clinic today.

The Advantages of a More Youthful Vagina

The main advantage of vaginal tightening and toning is to restore the body’s sex organ to the youthful and healthy state of earlier years. Unfortunately, many women tend to neglect or fail to realize there are procedures designed to help tone and maintain health of the vagina, including exercises and surgical procedures.

Certainly, a woman’s sexual health is affected by many variables including emotion, psychological, past relationships, life experiences, overall health, and most importantly, the vigor of the relationship with her partner. However, if a woman feels her vagina is loose or relaxed her sexual health may be significantly affected. A well-toned vagina may contribute to a greater sense of sexual sensation and satisfaction and this can affect a woman’s overall quality of life in many ways.

Excerpt from Vaginal Rejuvenation by Dr. Roy Jackson MD

Designer VaginaDr. Jackson is Canada’s leading vaginal rejuvenation specialist, and a member of False Creek Healthcare Centre’s Surgical Centre. Vaginal Rejuvenation explores the topic of women’s sexuality, and women’s right to sexual emancipation. If a man’s need for sexual rehabilitation was never placed under social scrutiny, why should a woman’s?

Included in this book are straightforward descriptions of what cosmetic vaginal surgeries are available, how to speak to your doctor about sexual rehabilitation, and information on what to expect before, during and after surgery.

Vancouver cosmetic procedures to get your face and body ready for Summer

Summer BodyIt may be cloudy and a little chilly still in Vancouver, B.C, but at False Creek Healthcare Centre, men and women are already preparing for the summer. Liposuction, breast augmentation, and tummy tucks are the most popular plastic surgery procedures at this time of the year.

“All our treatments and procedures are appropriate for any season,” says Dr. Erin Brown, board certified plastic surgeon.

However as the warmer months of the year approaches, thoughts of bikinis, shorts, and tank tops are the motivating factors fueling this new summer trend. Botox, collagen, resytlane injections and other medical spa procedures are also on the rise, as people get ready for weddings, class reunions, and summer parties. Spring is a perfect time for cosmetic surgery, the holidays are over and the rain clouds make it easier to stay indoors and rest up for a full recovery.

Getting Ready for the summer with Breast Augmentation

Breast implant surgery not only helps you achieve fuller and larger breasts, but it can also help you feel great about yourself. After breast augmentation, many of our patients are excited to wear the summer fashion they never felt comfortable in – bikinis, halter-tops, and summer dresses.

Recovery Time:
Time Off Work: 1 to 2 weeks
Back to Light Activities: 2 weeks
Back to Rigorous Activities: 3 to 4 weeks

Getting Ready for the summer with Liposuction

With the help of liposuction, women can regain the curves that they can be proud to show off at the beach. Liposuction is also gaining popularity for men, both genders are opting for contouring in their bellies, hips, thighs, chin and neck area.

Recovery Time:
Time Off Work: 3 to 5 days
Back to Light Activities: Next day
Back to Rigorous Activities: 2 weeks

Getting Ready for the summer with Botox, Restylane and Collagen Injections

Wishing to look younger is normal, however not everyone is ready for a surgical procedure like a face-lift. Botox, restylane and collagen injections provide quick treatments to smooth deep furrows and wrinkles. Restylane and collagen injections can also be used to improve the fullness and definition of your lips.

Recovery Time: None
Time Off Work: 30 to 60 minutes
Back to Light Activities: Immediately
Back to Rigorous Activities: Immediately

Summer is just around the corner. If you want to show off your new shape this summer, start planning today!

Achieving Beautiful Breasts

It’s important that you and your plastic surgeon have an understanding of what you want to look like.

Choosing Breast Implants37-year-old Rachel Benson* sits in the waiting room, anxiously waiting for her appointment with Dr. Rai. This is her first breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Rai, and her third consultation overall from different plastic surgeons in Vancouver.

As she is admitted into the consultation room, Rachel pulls out a notebook. She has 2 pages of notes detailing breast implant brands, fillers, textures, shapes and even implant placements. Rachel shows Dr. Rai her notes and asks his opinion, “Gel-filled Natrelle 110 or the Siltex Round Moderate Profile?”

Deciding on the right breast implants for your body can be overwhelming. With the wealth of information and advice available, it’s common to meet women like Rachel Benson. Web savvy women, who have done their research, but do not realize how important it is to communicate their ideal of beautiful breasts to their plastic surgeon. Beauty is in fact very subjective. Before deciding on size, volume and even type of implants, first define what you want to look like. Your desired appearance is what you want to focus on communicating to your plastic surgeon.

Find a plastic surgeon that will listen rather than just give you their opinion. Bring photographs and magazine clippings to help communicate what you want your breasts to look like. It’s not uncommon for patients to bring magazine clippings of their favorite celebrity’s breasts, don’t be shy about bringing your own images! Our plastic surgeons will also have before and after photos that you can look through.

Once you are confident that you and your plastic surgeon understand your goals, then you can begin the discussion about breast implant options. Here are some of the topics that will be discussed during your consultation:

  • Volume: The size and width of an implant. The correct volume for your body is based on existing breast tissue, your body type and frame.
  • Filler: There are 2 FDA approved fillers. This is a personal choice that will depend on you and your plastic surgeon. Read Saline or Silicone.
  • Shell Options: There are 2 options, textured or smooth. Smooth implants, being softer and able to move more freely, is the more popular choice. Textured implants help the implants maintain proper vertical alignment. This is another decision that should be decided with the help of your plastic surgeon.
  • Implant Placement: You can have your implants placed above or below the muscle. Your plastic surgeon will decide the best placement based on your goals and your breast type.

Rachel Benson has already met with three plastic surgeons. Her first two surgeons had provided her with opposing breast implant options, which left her more confused than ever. Rachel once again went back to the Internet, this time not to research for breast implant brands, but to look at pictures of women whom she wanted to look like. 6 months later, we followed up with Rachel to see how she was doing. She had fully recovered and is completely happy with the decisions that she and Dr. Rai had made, “I am thrilled, I never expected that I could look this good. It was thanks to Ashley (patient care coordinator) that I was able to figure out what I wanted to look like. And of course Dr. Rai for delivering my ideas.”

Breast Implants – Saline or Silicone?

Saline or Silicone Breast ImplantsSaline or Silicone? Both are common, and popular implants used in breast augmentation surgery. But how do they compare? Does one look better than the other? Feel better?

The visibilities of scars are a major concern. Depending on the location of the incision, scars can be minimal to invisible. New implant techniques allow plastic surgeons to make incisions in the armpit rather than on the breasts themselves. Saline implants are more versatile in this regard because they can be filled once they have been placed. Generally you do not have this option for silicone implants. However, depending on the size of the implants and the skill level of the surgeon, silicone implants may be inserted using the armpit incision. Dr. Rai is one such surgeon that has performed silicone implants using the arm pit incision.

The ability to adjust cup size and firmness without having to remove the implant, by adjusting the amount of saline, is another benefit of the saline implant that simply isn’t possible with silicone. Silicone implants offer an incredible range of options to ensure that you find the look that is right for you, but if you want to make a change later on then there is no option but surgery.

Silicone may not be as versatile as saline, but it makes up for it where the feel of the implants is concerned. Silicone gel has a consistency and texture similar to that of human fat which results in a realistic, natural feel. Saline implants can sometimes have a “water balloon” feel, although this can be adjusted depending on how much saline is used to fill the implant.

Safety. It is a major concern when implants of any kind are concerned. Ruptured implants of either type are extremely rare but when they do occur, you want to be safe. The sterile solution of a saline implant will be absorbed safely into the body and silicone won’t. There is not, however, any evidence that silicone will cause any major, long-term health issues. In either case the implant will have to be removed and replaced.

Both implants have advantages and disadvantages and ultimately the decision depends on what is right for you. As with any medical procedure you should always consult with your plastic surgeon before making any final decisions.
