Meet Yolanda Balatbat RN
Yolanda Balatbat R.N. is the full time nurse of the TMB practice. She has been working with Dr. Born for almost 17 years, and in that time has assisted Dr. Born in the operating room, and TMB day clinic. Yolanda has been trained and certified as a provider of all of our non surgical treatments, including injectables (Botox, Juvederm, Restylane), non surgical fat reduction (Vanquish, Coolsculpting), skin rejuvenation and laster treatments (micro-needling, fractionated laser, Exilis. She regularly attends aesthetics conferences and seeks out additional training throughout North America in order to bring patients the very BEST in care and results. She will take the time to listen to your needs as a patient, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that gets you the results you are looking for. Yolanda also provides all of the day to day follow up care for our surgical patients. Patients are always raving about her honest approach during consultation, and her caring and sensitive demeanour. She is here to ensure your results and experience are the very BEST they can be.
“I love seeing the reaction patients have when we show them their own “before and after” photos. They can’t believe the changes! They may be surprised, but I KNOW from experience – we can help them get the results they are looking for.” – Y.B.
Q: How many years have you worked for TMB?
A. I’ve been working with Dr. Born and the TMB practice exclusively for 7 years, but we have been working together since he was a Plastic Resident in early 90’s at Toronto Western Hospital. We’ve grown up together!
Q: What is your favorite part of the job?
A. I can honestly say “I Love my Job!” Every aspect of my job I enjoy immensely, from taking care of our surgical patients, to providing treatments and injections, to initial consultations.
Q: What is your favorite TMB treatment/service to perform (or… to receive)?
A. TMB injected my periorbital area with Restylane and it transformed my eyes. The injections have framed my eyes so much better and people have stopped asking me if I am tired despite my good-night sleep!
Q: When you’re not busy working at TMB, what makes you feel happy, healthy and beautiful?
A. I spend a lot of time with my 2 grown daughters—I am a very cool MOM and they love hanging out with me! Being with them gives me the greatest joy! I also love my alone time, tending to my garden (toiling soil is such a great stress reliever). I love running as well, but recently walking is much softer impact on my knees, and reading before bedtime to end my day.
