Dr. Raggio: Rhinoplasty expert

Dr. Raggio’s favorite procedure to perform is a rhinoplasty, which he is able to carry out expertly and beautifully with his unique training as both a Head & Neck surgeon (otolaryngologist) and a Facial Plastic surgeon. This training gives him a knowledgeable perspective on restoring both form and function to the nose. In addition, his multicultural training experience in Toronto, Ontario means that his rhinoplasty techniques can be tailored to noses of all shapes, colors, and sizes.

Having trained under two of Canada’s most renowned injectors — Dr. Jamil Asaria and Dr. Ashlin Alexander — Dr. Raggio is also an expert injector of neuromodulators ( Botox ®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, Jeuveau™) and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®.

Dr. Raggio believes in taking a holistic approach when it comes to rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation.

Lastly, Dr. Raggio strongly believes in creating durable, natural results for patients: ones that not only are consistent with the patient’s cultural and ethnic values, but also results that represent the classical ideals of beauty and will stand the test of time.
