“Be passionate about what you do, or stay home. Don’t consider aesthetic medicine as a part-time endeavor to supplement income. Be committed to the profession, and take the time to learn and be properly trained to perform the delicate procedures.”

These are words of advice from Arthur Swift, MD, CM, FRCS, a Montreal plastic surgeon who also is, among other things, a founder of The Westmount Institute of Plastic Surgery, his current practice; medical director for Victoria Park Medispa in Westmount, Quebec, Canada; the creator of a beauty amplification concept called BeautiPHIcation; and clearly a man who likes to excel at his ventures.

A solid start

Swift spent his undergraduate and medical school years studying at Montreal’s McGill University, initially exploring trauma surgery before being turned on to the aesthetic side of medicine. “I enrolled for a two-month elective in trauma surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami,” he explains. “The trauma elective hours as a junior were grueling, and the department advised me that a two-month stint was never recommended, and that I should choose another elective for the second month.”
