Due to the new federal budget of Canada that was announced on March 4th, the government is now taking away tax breaks for all popular cosmetic procedures and surgeries including Botox injections, breast and nose surgeries, liposuction, hair replacement and teeth whitening.

Only “medically necessary cosmetic treatments will still be eligible for the tax break’, such as reconstructive surgery after injury, or to correct deformities. These cosmetic treatments will be eligible for the medical expense tax credit which is 15% of eligible unreimbursed medical expenses in excess of $2,024 or 3% of a person’s net income, whichever is less.
