Dr. Perhez Jaffer's credentials

Since 1998, Dr. Jaffer has been a clinical instructor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia. He is also proud to have been chosen as a physician volunteer at Vancouver’s 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Certified in MD Codes

Dr Jaffer is one of the few physicians in Canada trained and certified in MD Codes—a precise and comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation using BOTOX and dermal fillers. This method accurately pinpoints:

  • The depth of injection
  • The proper tool to administer the product (needle or cannula)
  • The method for delivering the product
  • The lowest product volume recommended for effectiveness and visible results

The MD Codes system increases patient satisfaction by going beyond treating lines and wrinkles—focusing on balancing all facial areas to achieve more meaningful results.

Approach as a Cosmetic Physician

Dr. Jaffer designs treatments around your individual goals. During the consultation, he gets to know your concerns, evaluates your needs, and educates you on your treatment options clearly and forthrightly.

Dr. Jaffer focuses on helping you look refreshed, youthful, and attractive without drastically changing your appearance. He emphasizes conservative care and aims for natural-looking and subtle results. He often uses a staged approach:  

  • Conducting the procedures
  • Giving results time to develop
  • Evaluating whether further treatment is necessary

This approach ensures that outcomes are graceful, refined, and never overdone.

Areas of Focused Clinical Interest

Dr. Jaffer concentrates on nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatments for patients interested in improving their appearance. These include:

  • Dermal fillers and other injectables: Over time, the face can develop wrinkles and lose its natural, youthful fullness. Dr. Jaffer addresses these signs of aging with products such as the dermal filler JUVÉDERM®, which adds volume to features and fills in wrinkles, and BOTOX, which can temporarily erase facial lines and furrows.
  • Lip augmentation: Dr. Jaffer created the Love Your Lips™ treatment, a mini-lip augmentation exclusively available at Heights Laser Centre. The Love Your Lips™ technique gives patients a fuller, defined pout that is more natural-looking and less expensive than a traditional lip augmentation.
  • Fat reduction procedures: Stubborn areas of body fat can persist even with proper diet and exercise. Dr. Jaffer’s work as a cosmetic physician can help patients get rid of this unwanted fat. One treatment option he offers is BELKYRA®, an injectable product proven to eliminate fat cells permanently from beneath the chin. Another popular solution, CoolSculpting®, freezes fat cells and slims the contour of areas such as the abdomen, flanks, chin, bra line, and thighs. EMSCULPT NEO® extends the scope of Dr. Jaffer’s body contouring services by uniquely combining fat reduction with muscle enhancement, providing a dual-action treatment that optimizes aesthetic outcomes.

“My goal is to make you look and feel your best. I welcome you, your family, and friends.”
