However, his surgery is now done in his own surgical facility - The Rosedale Centre for Plastic Surgery, at Bloor and Sherbourne, in Toronto. Dr. Peters opened this facility in 2001. It is unique, because it has a hospital license. Surgery is done under general anaesthetic, intravenous (twilight) sedation, and local anaesthetic. Patients from across Canada, The Bahamas, and elsewhere, may choose to stay at one of the many hotels nearby. Canadian plastic surgeons are not permitted to operate on patients from the United States, unless they are Canadian citizens.

Since 1990, Dr. Peters has been the Course Director and Coordinator of the largest aesthetic plastic surgery symposium in Canada - the University of Toronto Annual Symposium for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Each year, over 250 plastic surgery professionals, from Canada, the United States, and abroad attend this meeting.

For the past 10 years, Dr. Peters has been the Coordinator of an international research study involving 3,000 women who have received silicone gel breast implants. In Washington, D.C., he is a consultant/advisor to the FDA, the National Academy of Science, the National Cancer Institute, the Institute of Medicine Study on the Safety of Breast Implants, and the FDA Public Health Project. He is also a member of Health Canada's Expert Panel on Breast Implants and Health Canada's Scientific Advisory Board.

"I think they have gone totally overboard," said Dr. Walter Peters, a professor of surgery at the University of Toronto. Radical jaw surgery in the United States and Canada, he added, "could sometimes be done for cosmetic reasons but it is usually done for developmental or post-traumatic reasons."
