What you are experiencing is a common problem for patients choosing to have surgery away from home. The good news is that in your case, it doesn't seem like you're having a complication, so your situation isn't urgent.
There are a lot of plastic surgeons in Toronto. I would just continue to call around. Some surgeons may accept your, with a professional fee for their time and care. To assist, if you haven't already, you can check out both the American and the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons websites for doctors in your area. If you can't find one, then perhaps your primary care doctor can follow you, and refer you to a colleague if they do suspect any issues. Best of luck!

I would recommend that you contact your surgeon and ask if he/she can refer you to a colleague local to handle your follow up care.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
Try the directory of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons or Royal College of Surgeons of Canada
In the Greater Toronto Area, there are a plethora of excellent Plastic Surgeons who would be both willing and capable of caring for you. While many Canadian Surgeons are cross certified in the US, there also are many exceptional Plastic Surgeons who choose only certification in Canada. The Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons has a listing of reputable surgeons certified by the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada and would serve as an excellent resource in your endeavors to find surgeon.
