Plastic Surgery

£3864 - £5053
Abdominal Etching

Etching is a specialized version of a meticulous, selective and planned liposuction to sculpt around your own muscle groups to better delineate their insertions and interdigitations (6-pack and 8-pack).  It is also one of my specialities and only a handful of surgeons perform this procedure in North America.  It is of utmost artistry and meticulous work and planning.  Patients must be moderately athletic in order to achieve full definition of the various muscle groups.  Post-op pain is similar to traditional liposuction and so are the swelling and bruising.  Cost varies between 6500$ and 8500$ depending on the amount of traditional liposuction that may also be required eg. love handles, back rolls, upper flanks, chest, etc...  Some patients also choose to have abdominal implants at the same time.

from £892
Areola Reduction

Areolar reduction is a simple in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.  A periareolar technique is usually performed (Benelli's technique).

from £2913
Arm Lift

An arm lift, or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour. As a person ages, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Plastic surgeons will consult with patients about undergoing surgery for an arm lift if they wish to tighten this skin to look and feel more youthful. The incision may be small and within the armpit itself, or may  extend from the elbow to the underarm, and sometimes on to the side of the chest. In some instances, your plastic surgeon may recommend that liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms. Upper arm excess in a massive weight loss patient usually crosses the arm pit and involves loose skin that extends onto the chest region. Brachioplasty, or upper arm reduction surgery, usually involves reducing the skin through a scar that runs on the inner part of the upper arm, often crossing onto the arm pit.Arm Lift surgery can be performed on a large variety of patients including normal weight patients who simply need a little tightening. However the majority of patients are massive weight loss patients that have stabilized their weight loss and do not have out of control medical problems. They present with excess skin and fat in their upper arms. Many of these patients complain that their arms feel and look like “bat wings”. Occasionally some older women have a lot of extra skin that is bothersome and would also be reasonable candidates. For patients who have minimal upper arm fat excess, with no skin excess, liposuction alone can be effective. For patients that have some extra skin that is minimal in nature and is located near the armpit, an improvement can be attained through a scar limited to the arm pit. For patients who present with a lot of upper arm excess, as in the case of most massive weight loss patients, tissue must be removed through a scar that runs from th

Belly Button Reshaping

Belly-Button reshaping is a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia in most cases. Belly-buttons can be mis-shaped from birth, from pregnancies, from torn piercings, etc.  Various techniques exist to re-establish the desired anatomy.

from £5053
Bra-Line Back Lift

Post weight loss plastic surgery procedures are numerous and each individual will demonstrate the results of a significant weight loss in various body areas; they may have sagging of the arms and neck; they may show a deflated, sagging and flatten breasts; they may show rolls in upper backs and the bra region and they may have a large hanging abdominal apron and sagging buttocks; they may have sagging and wrinkled inner thighs.  The amount of sagginess will be influenced by the amount of weight loss, the genetics, age, gender, pregnancies, level of physical activities, etc. Some procedures are performed similarly as with the non-weight loss patients, whereas other plastic surgery procedures have been designed specifically to address the sagging tissue seen in massive weight loss.  Upper torso lift, a combination of bra and back roll excision and lift, is often done in conjonction with a breast lift, with or without implants.

Breast Implants
from £4132
Breast Saline Implants

Breast surgery is one of my most common procedures.  Although silicone implants are now more common in my practice, we have many options of saline in Canada. I use both the Allergan Natrelle and Mentor implants.  The implants are inserted via a small incision within the inframammary fold or partly around the areola, between 4 and 7 o'clock.  Sometimes an underarm incision might be advised.  The implant is placed either under the original pectorals muscle (dual plane) or over the muscle, behind the gland or under the fascia.  This placement is decided together at the time of consultation.  Pros and cons will be discussed.  Pros and cons for each type of implant will be discussed during the consultation.  We do offer financing via 2 independent companies.

from £3864
Breast Lift

Breast surgery is one of my most common procedures.  Breast lift (ie mastopexy) is a very common procedure after pregnancies, breast feeding or after weight loss.  Many techniques exist (crescent, Benellis, Lejour, etc.) and I will go over those once we meet.  I tried to avoid the larger and longer anchor-style scarring as seen in the old breast lift techniques.  Some mastopexy results look better in combination with a small breast implant to replenish the skin envelop.  This again will be discussed once we meet.  We have many options of size, consistency and shape in Canada, saline and silicone gel.  We have many options of size, consistency and shape in Canada, saline and silicone gel.  When needed, the implants are inserted via the breast lift incision.  The implant is placed either under the original pectoralis muscle or over the muscle, behind the gland.  This placement is decided together at the time of consultation.  Pros and cons will be discussed.

 
Breast Reduction

Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery frequently are seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction usually can solve these problems as well as improve the size and shape of your breasts. Following breast reduction, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of your body, and clothes will fit you better. The common techniques include the modified Lejour's vertical reduction with no horizontal component (also known as the lollipop technique) and the classic inverted-T method (anchor-type scar) which is reserved for very large reduction.

Breast augmentation, lift or breast reduction are common cosmetic breast procedures for women. Woman with heavy large breast usually experience discomfort in the shoulders, neck and back. Reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) involves the removal of excess skin, tissue and fat to create a smaller more attractive breast shape.

Dr. DuPéré uses a European technique called Lejour Vertical Reduction (Lollipop-style scar as opposed to the Anchor-style scar). There is much less scarring, less pain and less chance of loosing nipple sensation by this expert technique.

 
Brow Lift

Brow lifting procedures are common procedures at Visage MD Clinic.  Dr. DuPéré performs different variations of this techniques depending on your anatomy and degree of correction required.  A brow lift will lift the brow in general with more emphasis on the outer part of the brow in order to obtain a pleasing arch; a brow lift will also flatten down the forehead wrinkles and will soften the lines between the 2 eyebrows.  Small incisions technique, full coronal in-hair or at-hairline incision (for most males and for ladies with high foreheads), and temporal incisions only.  Usually performed under general anesthesia.  It can be done independently or with a facelift and eyelid surgery.

from £3270
Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat pad removal is performed in order to get the slight hollowing under the cheek bone which tends to give a more angular look, as seen in many actors and actresses.  It is a simple procedure done under local anesthesia and the incision is within the mouth itself so no visible scars.

 
Buffalo Hump Removal

Buffalo hump is usually made of fat and fibrous tissue; it is best treated with liposuction, using the S.A.F.E. technique and with the PAL liposuction machine.

from £5350
Butt Implants

Buttock implants/augmentation is one of my specialties and only a few plastic surgeons perform this procedure in North America.  I have been performing buttock augmentation since 2005.  The procedure is very predictable and gratifying.  We have a several options of shapes and sizes in Canada.  We also now have access to the fantastic Brazilian implants made in Brazil, by Silimed.  I also use the USA-made implants.  A buttock implant is made of solid yet soft silicone material (soft gummy-bear type i.e. not a gel hence no possibility of leakage).  The implants are inserted via a small incision within the crease between the 2 buttocks, therefore, easily camouflaged once healed.  The implant is placed under the muscle fascia of the original large buttock (gluteal) muscle, blunting all edges of the implant so it looks smooth and natural.  This can be combined withfat grafting (Brazilian Butt Lift).  Liposculpture would also be commonly performed to ‘shape’ the buttocks.

from £5647
Butt Lift

Brazilian buttock or butt lift is a hot trend in the cosmetic surgery world.  A sexier, firmer, more defined buttock is a very attractive feature and one of the few curves that are still regarded as ‘sexy’. Although, initially requested from the VISAGE Clinic patients of Latin, Caribbean and South American descent, it has now reached all cultures – guys and girls.

Buttock Augmentation procedure is among Dr. Marc DuPéré’s specialties, and as you may know, only a few plastic surgeons perform these procedures in North America.  It is while travelling and learning in Brazil that he discovered the power and significance of a nice, fuller, rounder and sexy buttock area.

Dr. DuPéré has been performing buttock augmentation since he initially learned the procedure in 2004 and after attending various courses given by 4 world specialists:  Dr. De La Pina in Mexico, Dr. Mendieta in Miami, Dr. Del Vecchio in Boston and Dr. Raul Gonzalez in Brazil.  

Brazilian butt lift is a technique of buttock augmentation using your own fat.  It consists of harvesting fat from the abdomen, love handles, thighs, inner knees, etc. which is then transferred to the buttock area in specific and meticulous multi-layer technique.  A significant amount of fat is required for a sizeable augmentation.  If the amount of fat is insufficient, it can easily be combined with buttock implants, also a specialty of Dr. Marc DuPéré since 2005.  Very commonly, unwanted fat around, above and below the buttock is also removed in order to sculpt the desired A-type shape of the female buttock or squarer shape of the male buttock.

So in essence, you get liposuction in areas of excess fat, which is then transferred in areas where volume is deficient – two birds, one stone!

Dr. DuPere also performs buttock augmentation with buttock implants.

 
Butt Reduction

Butt reduction can be achieved with liposuction - and I use the S.A.F.E. principles.  One has to keep in mind that liposuction to buttocks can lead to excess skin (deflated envelop) and a skin resection might also be suggested, if needed.

from £5053
Calf Implants

Calf Augmentation is one of my specialties, and as you may know, only a few plastic surgeons perform these procedures in North America.We have many options of shapes and sizes in Canada and the size I pick is normally dictated by your leg anatomy. A calf implant is made of solid yet soft silicone material (gummy-bear type i.e. not a gel hence no possibility of leakage).  We have many sizes and shapes and your leg anatomy normally dictates the right implant to choose.  Implants are made in USA and in Brazil.  The implants are inserted via a small single incision within the crease behind the knees, therefore, easily camouflaged once healed.  The implant is placed under the fascia of the original calf (gastrocnemius) muscle, blunting all edges of the implant so it looks smooth and natural.  Careful measurements would be required prior to ordering the implants so we can choose the right implant for you.  Most patients are satisfied with one implant per lower leg.  The body-builder may require 2 implants per lower leg, usually performed in 2 different settings.

 
Chin Implant

Chin augmentation is very common in Toronto.  I use soft silicone implants; many models and sizes exist.  Implant can be inserted via an intra-oral incision or an incision under the chin.  Under the chin is often used when a neck procedure is required such as neck liposuction, repair of the hanging neck muscles and neck lift.

from £1754
Dimple Creation

Dimple creation is performed in order to get the slight crease within the cheek just outside the mouth commissure;  it is a simple procedure done under local anesthesia and the incision (4-5 mm) is within the mouth itself so no visible scars.

from £2675
Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is very common procedure in my practice and my extracurricular training was all about facial aesthetic surgery in Paris and Los Angeles.  Some patients choose to have this done under twilight sedation (intravenous sedation) with local anesthesia and others under full general anesthesia.  The 4-lid procedure takes about 2,5-3 hours to perform and upper lids alone take about 1,25 hours.

 

 Skin excision, fat removal and/or redraping, muscle repair/excision/suspension, etc. are all techniques I use.  

Asian Blepharoplasty is also a technique I performed.  

I would better able to give you my formal surgical plan once we meet and once I assess you.   Stitches are in place for 5-6 days.

Eyelid lift can be combined with a Brow lift.

from £7134
Facelift

Face/neck lift (redraping) procedures are very common in my practice.  You may have seen in my résumé that my extra training post plastic surgery residency was in facial aesthetic surgery in France.  So this part of the body is of great interest to me.

Various variations of face/neck lift exist; short-scar, 3-day, extensive, S-shape, mini, neck only, NewYork facelift, etc...  Some are smaller procedures with less downtime but with less longevity in results; some are more extensive procedures with slightly more downtime but with results that last longer.  Those variations would be explained and discussed in details during your few visits with me prior to your surgery.

Neck lift can be performed without the full face if requested.

from £4458
Mini Facelift

Face/neck lift (redraping) procedures are very common in my practice.  You may have seen in my résumé that my extra training post plastic surgery residency was in facial aesthetic surgery in France.  So this part of the body is of great interest to me.

Neck lift can be performed without the full face if requested.

 
Fat Transfer

Fat transfer - and particularly Stem Cell transfer - have become a very common adjunct to many of our plastic surgery procedures; fat transfer is done with most of my facelift procedures, with many lower lid procedures, for some breast augmentation, some buttock augmentation (Brazilian butt lift) with or without buttock implants, etc.

 
FFS - Facial Feminization Surgery

Having a downtown Toronto office and being a younger surgeon, I have had an important transgender clientele since 2001, both FTM and MTF.  As far as FFS is concerned, I performed most procedures: rhinoplasty, Adam Apple reduction (shave), forehead bossing reduction, scalp advancement, cheek enhancement, chin reduction and implants, lip lift and lip augmentation (fillers, fat transfer), eyelid feminization, brow lift, etc.)

 
Genital Reshaping

For our female patients, I perform reduction labiaplasty (both the inner and outer labia) and augmentation labiaplasty (inner and outer, with fillers of fat transfer).  For our male patients, I perform scrotal (skin) reduction.

from £4458
Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is very common.  Breast tissue development in a male can be due to hormonal imbalances as seen in newborns and teenagers, in obesity, in excessive alcohol intake, steroids and cannabis.  Having a strong male clientele in my downtown office, gynecomastia surgery is a very common procedure in my practice;  it is most commonly performed under general anesthesia.  Most of time, liposuction is needed and this is often combined (when needed) with a direct excision of breast tissue via a small incision between 4 and 7 o'clock around the areola (brown disk around nipple).  Occasionally, if the excess tissue is mostly fatty, liposuction can be done alone... but true gynecomastia usually requires direct excision as the glands are dense and cannot be entirely suctionned.  For enlarged areolas (brown disk around the nipple), an areolar reduction might also be required.

 
Inverted Nipple Surgery

I performed a full release of the tethered inverted nipple via a small 7-8 mm incision at the base of the nipple;  this procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, in office.

 
Jaw Contouring

Jaw contouring is a broad term.  In my practice, I reduce the strong masseter muscles with injection (hypertrophy of masseters gives a squarer lower face to a lady, and squaring of the lower face is a masculine feature).  I also commonly use facial fillers or fat transfer (and Stem Cell) to contour the jawline, help the marionette lines, the cowlings, etc.   Finally, I commonly use chin implant to better shape the lower face area.

from £2675
Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a common procedure and several techniques exist depending on your anatomy and on the desired results.  This procedure can be done either under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or under full general anesthesia.  We will discuss that further once we meet.

 
Lip Reduction

Reduction of the upper lip, lower lip or both, is a simple in-office procedure, done under local anesthesia.  The incision is located within the 'red' lips, at the junction between what we call the 'wet' and the 'dry' red lip.  Scar is very hard to see once the incisions have healed.  Stitches can be dissolving, or otherwise, have to be removed one week later.

 
Liposuction

Liposuction, liposculpture and etching are very common in my practice.  I follow the S.A.F.E. principles and I use both the SAL and PAL technologies.  I always use the tumescence solution infiltration technique as it increases the safety of the procedure and also decreases the amount of bleeding considerably.  Liposuction can be done as a sole procedure or often in combination with tummy-tuck, facelift, breast lift, all types of body lifts, etc.

 
Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is common as facial plastic surgery is an important part of my practice and of my post-curricular training.  Neck liposuction can be done alone, or in combination with the repair of the hanging front neck muscles and with a full neck lift or neck redrawing or facelift.

 
Muscle Implants

Muscle - or body - implant is one of my special interests.  I perform calf augmentation, buttock augmentation, breast augmentation, pectoral augmentation, abdominal augmentation, hip augmentation and soon biceps and triceps augmentation.

from £3864
Neck Lift

As you may know, I did all my extra training in facial plastic surgery so neck procedures are very common in my practice.   And I applied the rules and principles of SAFE liposuction when liposuction is needed.

Basically, neck and under-chin area can be treated in 3 ways, depending on your age, your anatomy, the amount of fat present (superficial and deep), the laxity of your 2 neck muscles (platysma) and the amount of redundant skin present.

a. liposuction alone

b. liposuction and anterior neck muscle repair

c. liposuction, muscle repair, muscle suspension and neck skin redraping.

Liposuction to the neck as sole procedure is possible providing your skin is still elastic.  In older people and in those with moderate to serious weight loss, a tightening procedure might be needed.  Liposuction alone can be done under local anesthesia with Intravenous sedation, or under full general anesthesia.

 
Nipple Reduction

Nipple reduction is done in-office under local anesthesia.  Reduction can be of the 'length' of the nipple (reduction of projection) or of the entire circumference of the nipple.  I also commonly repair defect left after nipple piercing.

 
Otoplasty

Otoplasty

 

- a.k.a. ear surgery -  is a very common procedure in my practice and is one of my specialties.  I always use several techniques to ensure proper back-rotation of the cartilage by using skin excision, cartilage scoring and carving, cartilage to fascia sutures and cartilage to cartilage sutures.  I also have a very personal way to apply my dressing which make relapse very very unlikely.  The incision is behind the ear.  

from £5350
Pectoral Implants

Body implant 

is one of my specialties, and as you may know, only a few plastic surgeons perform this procedure in North America.  I perform calf, pectoral, buttock implants and also abdominal etching.

 

Pectoral implant:  

We have several options of shapes and sizes in Canada.  A pectoral implant is made of solid yet soft silicone material (gummy-bear type i.e. not a gel hence no possibility of leakage).  The implant is inserted via s small incision within the underarm (hair-bearing) area, hence easily camouflaged once healed.  The implant is placed under the original pectoralis muscle, blunting all edges of the implant so it looks smooth and natural.  I use both USA and Brazil-made implants.

  

 
Plastic Surgeon Consultation
 
Post Bariatric Plastic Surgery

This is a special interest of mine and attend the Santa Fe Body contouring meeting on a regular basis.  I perform all types of surgeries post-weight loss: face and neck lift, tummy-tuck, buttock lift and implants, full body lift (belt lipectomy), outer thigh lift, limited and extensive inner thigh lift, all types of arm lifts, breast lifts, torsoplasty, breast and body implants, etc. 

 
Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty was part of my extra-curricular training when I were in Paris with Dr. Gilbert Aiache.  I perform many different techniques with both males and females patients.  I increase, decrease and refine the noses.  I work at all levels: skin, cartilage, bones, septum, ala (nostrils), etc.

 
Alarplasty

Alarplasty procedure alone is done usually in office, under local anesthesia.  It is very common in the asian and afro-americaine population and to some extent, caucasian.  There is a small scar where the nostrils meet the cheeks.  Alarplasty is often performed with a full rhinoplasty.

 
Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is often used to address the bony part of the nose (hump).  All the incisions are within the nose and non-visible.  A closed rhinoplasty is not recommended for more complex rhinoplasty tip procedure and the open approach (a small 5-6mm incision in the narrow part between the 2 nostrils) is then favoured.

 
Nasal Tip Surgery

Nasal tip rhinoplasty is very common as a wide or bulbous tip is very common in both males and females.  Excessive cartilage is removed and the remaining cartilage in the nostrils is reshaped and sutured in the proper projection, height and width.  

 
Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty technique is commonly used when complex procedure to the tip and nostrils (ala) are required; the open approach consists of joining the internal incisions (as in the closed approach) via a small 6-8mm incision in the narrowest part of the skin bridge between the 2 nostrils.  The open approach is more predictable as visualization is improved remarkably.

 
Thigh Lift

I have a strong interest in body lifts.  Various techniques exist of thigh lift, both for the inner and for the outer thighs.  The inner thigh lift can be treated with a crescentic excision (scar in the groin) or with a full vertical excision as needed with massive weight loss.  The outer thigh lift can be done alone, or more commonly done in conjunction with a body lift (aka belt lipectomy), a combination of tummy-tuck, outer thigh lift and buttock lift.

 
Trachea Shave

Tracheal shave is a reduction of the Adam's apple (aka thyroid cartilage).  It is done via a small incision under the chin, under general anesthesia (a similar incision is done with most neck and facelift).  This procedure is commonly performed on males with very large Adam's apple and also on Male-to-Female transgender patients.

from £4458
Tummy Tuck

Tummy-Tuck is one of my most common procedures, and this is often accompanied with liposuction.

 

I offer the mini-tummy-tucks, the classic one and the extended version.  Sometimes the TT is combined with a buttock lift (Belt lipectomy, for major weight loss).  The technique used depends on each patients anatomy.  Mini-tummy-tucks commonly require no or very minimal liposuction and the scar is shorter.  Muscle repair is usually performed, as it is usually needed.  Recovery for the mini version is approximately 2 weeks (after which most patients go back to work).  Returning to the gym however would only happen 4-6 weeks post-op.  For the full classic abdominoplasty, most require liposuction to love handles and abomen, muscle plication repair (repair of the loosened abdominal muscles), repositioning and rejuvenation of the belly-button and skin excision.

Full Abdominoplasty

Tummy-Tuck is one of my most common procedures, and this is often accompanied with liposuction.

I offer the mini-tummy-tucks, the classic one and the extended version.  Sometimes the TT is combined with a buttock lift (Belt lipectomy, for major weight loss).  The technique used depends on each patients anatomy.  Mini-tummy-tucks commonly require no or very minimal liposuction and the scar is shorter.  Muscle repair is usually performed, as it is usually needed.  Recovery for the mini version is approximately 2 weeks (after which most patients go back to work).  Returning to the gym however would only happen 4-6 weeks post-op.  For the full classic abdominoplasty, most require liposuction to love handles and abomen, muscle plication repair (repair of the loosened abdominal muscles), repositioning and rejuvenation of the belly-button and skin excision.

Laser and Pulsed Light Vein Treatment
 
Deep Chemical Peel

We offer at Visage Clinic the Jessner peel, the lactic acid peel, the salicylic peel and the glycolic peel. 

We also offer the Sciton Erbium resurfacing as a safe and predictable peeling device.  The laser technology offers a precise and uniform treatment, and can address any thicknesses, from a mere 4 microns (what you get at the aesthetician) to a more effective 20 or 40 microns (micro laser peel) to a full resurfacing of many hundreds of microns for deep wrinkles and acne scars.  We also offer the effective profractional treatments with less down-time but it requires about 6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.  We commonly add PRP selphyl to speed us the recovery

Dermal Fillers

[Treatment name removed] and Dermal Fillers are my most common non-surgical procedures.  I also commonly teach other doctors the advanced techniques and I am invited every year for the ‘expert injector only’ F.A.C.E. meeting in USA and Canada.  I perform all injections myself for a customized and optimized treatment.  I perform more than just filling up lines;  I believe in 3-D volume restoration, soft tissue lifting, feminization and triangulation of the ladies’s faces and rejuvenation.

 I commonly perform the [Treatment name removed]/fillers/Selphyl on the same day as the consultation. 

Dermal fillers, we have many options:   [Treatment name removed], [Treatment name removed], [Treatment name removed], Voluma, , Radiesse, PRP-Selphyl (so-called Vampire facelift), etc.  Many now come with a local anesthetic within the syringe so it makes the experience much more pleasant.  [Treatment name removed]/[Treatment name removed]/[Treatment name removed] are 650$/syringes or 550$/syringe if 3 or more are being purchased.  They normally last up to 9-12 months in the naso-labial area but up to 12-15 months when used over bone such as chin, tearthroughs and cheeks. [Treatment name removed] Voluma and Volbella, a newer product limited to expert-injector only is 750$/vial or 650$/syringe if 3 or more are being purchased. 

I also use (but not for the lips!): 

A.  Radiesse (calcium-based liquid/gel product, natural, that I use for rejuvenating the hands and for jaw contouring – 800$ per 1,5 cc vial),

B.  (a synthetic collagen stimulator – 1000$ for a 7ml treatment – most people require 3 treatments 2 months apart) and

C.  Selphyl (platelet-rich plasma technology with stem cell/growth factors which turns ‘on’ your own collagen, elastin, skin cell turn-over, etc – 1500

 
Collagen Filler
 
Fat Filler

Fat fillers, fat grafting, fat transfer and Stem cells are all similar concepts.  Those techniques were almost forgotten in the early 2000s as JDerm products entered the Canadian market.  Now with the discovery of the very specialized Stem Cells, fat transfer has resurfaced and is now part of many of our plastic surgery procedures such as fat grafting to face, to breasts and to buttocks.

from £505
Platelet Rich Plasma Filler

Selphyl (platelet-rich plasma) technology with stem cell/growth factors will turn ‘on’ your own collagen, elastin, skin cell turn-over, etc – 1500$ for the 8-10ml kit or 4500$ for 3 (850$ for the 4-5 ml kit for a localized treatment area).

from £476
Radiesse™ / Radiance™ Filler

Radiesse (calcium-based liquid/gel product, natural, that I use for rejuvenating the hands and for jaw contouring – 800$ per 1,5 cc vial)

 
Excessive Sweating Treatment

[Treatment name Removed] has revolutionized the excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) treatments.  It is several small in-office injections.  Treatment takes about 20-30 minutes and the effects last between 6 and 12 months.  I commonly use 50 units per side in ladies and 100 units per side in males.  I have used [Treatment name Removed] for heavy sweating of the hands, the feet, the underarms, the forehead, etc.  Many drug plans will cover in part in Canada but I always advise my patients to enquire to their work insurance.  I am always happy to fill out the required forms if it helps my patients.

Mole Removal

Moles, cysts and lipoma removal is very common in both my practice locations.  Usually a simple procedure done under local anesthesia, in-office.  As a plastic surgeon, I use fine instruments and fine sutures, and I manipulate the skin gently as to minimize all scars.
