Dr. Dumestre’s Approach to Cosmetic Care

Dr. Dumestre’s mission is to help people achieve their ideal physical expression of self while fostering an environment of optimism, self-love, and kindness. Regardless of what you’re seeking treatment for, Dr. Dumestre values a respectful, judgment-free space for her patients. She prides herself on listening closely to her patients’ goals to provide individually tailored care and the best possible aesthetic results.

Education and Training

Dr. Dumestre was born and raised in Canada and completed both medical school and her plastic and reconstructive surgery residency training at the University of Calgary in Alberta. During residency, she was exposed to the wide breadth of the field of plastic surgery, including hand and facial trauma, burns, complex wound management, and pediatrics. She was ultimately drawn to reconstruction for breast cancer patients as well as cosmetic breast and body contouring procedures. 

Building on her passion for breast reconstruction, Dr. Dumestre pursued a supplementary microsurgery fellowship in Dallas at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, a leading U.S. cancer-care center with experts in the field of microsurgery. During her fellowship, Dr. Dumestre gained subspecialized free-flap skills, allowing her to offer DIEP flap breast reconstruction for mastectomy patients, as well as customized free-tissue transfer from other sites—such as the lower back and inner thighs—to address her cancer patients’ unique needs.

After her fellowship, Dr. Dumestre opened her private practice in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She also served as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at the University of Alberta, where she enjoyed teaching and mentoring medical students and residents. She is a member of the Association of Women Surgeons and regularly gives talks to students, encouraging young women to pursue careers in medicine and surgery.
