Medical Expenses - Cosmetic Procedures

In the 2010 Federal Budget, any expenses incurred for purely cosmetic procedures performed for enhancing one’s appearance have been deemed ineligible for the medical expense tax credits. These include liposuction, hair replacement procedures, botulinum toxin injections, and teeth whitening. If cosmetic procedures are required for medical or reconstructive purposes, such as corrective laser eye surgery and dental crowns, they will continue to qualify for the tax credit.
