Dr. Lloyd N. Carlsen established Canada's first burn unit at The Scarborough Hospital (then named  Scarborough General Hospital) and went on to build the largest hospital based plastic surgery unit in Canada.


Dr. Carlsen revolutionized several medical procedures and received international recognition during his tenure as Chief of Plastic Surgery at The Scarborough Hospital. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Carlsen performed the first calf augmentation for a post-polio leg reconstruction in the world, pioneered the use of porcine dressing for burn patients and inserted Canada's first soybean oil breast implants (with Dr. Sandra Voice).


Dr. Carlsen is the founding member of The Canadian Society for Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Plastic Surgery which he started in 1972. He also established the Canadian Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Care Facilities in 1984 out of concern that surgical facilities should meet standards and criteria when operations are performed outside of a general hospital.


Perhaps one of Dr. Carlsen's greatest joys is the training of over 50 young plastic surgeons in his fellowship program throughout his career. Apart from his accomplishments as a surgeon, Dr. Carlsen is an avid mountain skier and scuba diver and had the honour of being on the first "ill fated" Mount Everest expedition in the 70's.
