Meet Dr. vanVliet

Dr. Deborah vanVliet

Dr. Deborah vanVliet is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial rejuvenation, and the surgical refinement and reshaping of the female form.

Dr. Deborah vanVliet is a Canadian board-certified plastic surgeon and the founder and director of The Van Vliet Clinic in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility located in Newmarket. The Clinic has been designed to bring the most advanced innovations and science to aging, beauty, & skin rejuvenation. Dr. vanVliet is currently the acting Chief of Plastic Surgery at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, Ontario.

Dr. vanVliet is not only a highly accomplished plastic surgeon; she is also a respected clinical lecturer for the department of surgery at the University of Toronto and she is integral to the teaching of resident doctors.  She is an active member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS), the Canadian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS) and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Dr. vanVliet received her formal training at the University of Guelph, where she received her Bachelor of Science, followed by a Master of Science.  She completed her medical training at the University of Toronto and finalized her plastic surgery training at McMaster University.Being a female plastic surgeon gives Dr. vanVliet a unique insight into the difficulties and insecurities that the women who come to her clinic from Barrie, Vaughan, Markham, and surrounding areas are faced with as they age. Her surgical practice is focused on female breast enhancement and body contouring. She also loves treating skin. She believes that healthy skin is the precursor to beautiful skin. Her dedication to the skin rejuvenation side of her practice brings science and simplicity to the misinformation prevalent in the skin care industry. Both Dr. vanVliet and her team are genuinely excited to see how great their patients look after treatment … and how happy their patients are, not only with the result, but with the care they’ve received. Many remark on how easy the procedure was, and how quickly they recovered.

On a personal note, Dr vanVliet is an avid world traveler.  She has cycled, paddled and trekked across extensive parts of the globe. She has a dedicated yoga practice and a profound love for the environment and the outdoors. She loves living in the natural beauty of the York regional forests. In her spare time, (what spare time?) she can be found walking the forests with her dogs, cooking up a storm for friends and family, or tending to her extensive gardens.
