Hello, I am not a medical student, but my girlfriends brother is a Plastic Surgeon in Turkey.

He is Happy in Turkey (no plans to move) and makes enough to live happy, but,

I am just wondering if anyone could give a ballpark approx. of the salary of a Canadian Plastic Surgeon?

and maybe that of an Americian Plastic Surgeon?

Thanks,

I don't know about Canada, but according to AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) the annual salary for plastic surgeons ranges from $153,000 to $410,000. (Go to Google and type in "plastic surgeon salary" - it's the 2nd link.

About a third of that goes to taxes and malpractice insurance.

The avg for Canadian Plastic surgeons is 260K. It runs from (the lowest avg of) 200K in Quebec to (the highest avg. of) 439k in Manitoba!

Indeed. Also keep in mind to multiply by exchange rate of USD to whatever native currency in question.

Let's see if I got this right: You're not a medical student, neither is your turkish girlfriend. Her brother, the plastic surgeon, has no plans to move to Canada (just as well - I think it would be extremely hard, if not impossible, for him to get into a Canadian plastics residency to get licensed!).
So then why do you want to know how much plastic surgeons make in Canada? :confused:

Does that mean Manitobans are exceptionally ugly, or have high incident rates of body dysmorphic disorder? :p
