About Dr. Terence Myckatyn

Dr. Myckatyn has been a plastic surgeon for over 5 years. He is board certified both by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

At West County Plastic Surgeons of Washington University, Dr. Myckatyn focuses on all areas of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, with specialization in facial cosmetic surgery, breast and body cosmetic surgery, post-bariatric body contouring surgery, breast reduction surgery, and breast reconstruction surgery.

As an Assistant Professor at Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Myckatyn is responsible for educating the next generation of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons. He is also responsible for training an average of five residents in plastic surgery annually.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Dr. Myckatyn earned his doctorate of medicine at the University of British Columbia.

He is the author of over 50 peer-reviewed research articles, numerous textbook chapters, and has been a featured presenter at international conferences.

Most recently, Dr. Myckatyn has been noted as one of 2008's "Best Doctors in St. Louis" and "Best Doctors in America" by Best Doctors, Inc. He is the tenth recipient of the prestigious "John E. Hoopes Academic Scholar" award from the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (2006-2008). He was also the first plastic surgeon to be presented the "C. James Carrico Faculty Research Fellowship" award from the American College of Surgeons.

"Plastic surgery is a unique blend of sound medical judgment, surgical technique, art and the discriminating use of emerging technologies. Plastic surgery is most effective when a specific cosmetic concern is treated with the most appropriate cosmetic procedure. To ensure that this is the case, patients should always seek a board-certified, well-trained plastic surgeon who can safely offer multiple surgical and non-surgical options. A surgeon with many tools in their toolbox is most likely to get you the result you want. As the old saying goes, 'Just because you have a hammer doesn't mean that everything is a nail.'"

Testimonials from the patients of Dr. Terence Myckatyn

Testimonial for Procedure: Body Lift

After losing 160 lbs, I had difficulty seeing the results of my accomplishment because of excess skin. While I was proud of my success, and living a much healthier lifestyle, I felt uncomfortable in my new body, as it was a constant reminder of who I was before I had lost the weight. It was difficult to move forward with my new life and see what other opportunities were available to me as a thinner, healthier person.

When I went to see Dr. Myckatyn, both he and his staff were incredibly warm and supportive. During the initial consultation, Dr. Myckatyn asked where I thought my problem areas were. Based on the feedback I gave him, he offered suggestions, which were great! Not once did he suggest a procedure on an area I did not bring up first. He gave me options in regards to the types of procedures and the potential results, and also showed me several examples of other patients who had the same procedures I was considering, which gave me a realistic expectation of the results.

After meeting with Dr. Myckatyn and receiving the quote for my procedures, I decided to ask him to be my physician. I had my initial consultation in December 2007, and my procedure was done in May 2008. I am a student and asked to have the procedures done during the summer to better accommodate my schedule. The scheduling office was more than happy to oblige.

I could not be happier with my results! My new body is now a testament of who I am and how far I have come. I don't know if I can accurately express the fondness I feel for Dr. Myckatyn. What he has done for me is so much more than making me "look" better. I feel I now have the permission to live the life I was intended to live. I have the confidence and motivation to challenge myself in ways I never thought possible. I am forever grateful for what he and his staff have done for me, and I will never forget them. My hope is that on days when they are struggling and frustrated, they think of patients like me whose lives they have impacted, and it helps make it all worthwhile.

I have already recommended Dr. Myckatyn to others. While I do not feel I need more surgical procedures at this time in my life, I do intend to have laser hair removal done at his office very soon.
