Dr. Reid earned his Doctor of Medicine with honors at the University of British Columbia. It was while attending UBC that he discovered his passion for plastic surgery. He was drawn to the variety of surgical procedures and ability to achieve dramatic results that leave patients feeling better about their bodies and themselves.

At the University of Calgary's Reconstructive and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery residency program, Dr. Reid received world-class training in surgery of the face, breast and body. After completing his residency and fellowship examination in 2008, Dr. Reid was awarded a Specialist Certificate in Plastic Surgery and joined the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

With his training complete, Dr. Reid returned to the Vancouver area to accept a staff position in the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Richmond Hospital. He considers Richmond home and feels fortunate to be working and raising his family in the community where he began his medical training.

Now in private practice, Dr. Reid provides comprehensive cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery for women and men throughout the Vancouver region. Breast reconstruction, breast reduction and breast augmentation are among the services available to women. Dr. Reid also offers a full slate of services to the increasing number of Vancouver area men who are choosing to have plastic surgery.
