Dr. Silverman’s Qualifications and Experience

Before he began practicing cosmetic surgery in Ottawa, Dr. Silverman completed extensive medical and surgical training and obtained certification in both general and plastic surgery. His educational background includes:

  • University of Toronto – Doctor of Medicine
  • Toronto Hospital – Internship in Surgery
  • Yale University – Residency in General Surgery, Chief Resident
  • Albany Medical College – Residency in Plastic Surgery, Chief Resident

Breast Enhancement Procedures

Dr. Silverman performs a full range of breast enhancement procedures, including:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Revision
  • Male Breast Reduction

One of the most popular options is breast augmentation. Women may select this procedure for a variety of reasons – some feel their breasts are too small for their body, some want to restore breast fullness lost as a result of pregnancy and aging, and some want to correct breast asymmetry. Dr. Silverman works with his breast augmentation patients to choose the right implant, to decide what implant placement location is best for them, and to choose the incision technique that will result in minimal scarring.

Body-Contouring Procedures

Dr. Silverman offers body contouring procedures designed for concerns such as sagging stomach skin and fat deposits on the hips, flanks, tummy, and thighs. Liposuction, for example, can be used to improve areas such as the “love handles” or a tummy “pouch.” If a patient wants to remove or tighten lax or excess skin, Dr. Silverman generally recommends a more comprehensive surgical procedure, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift. In many cases, Dr. Silverman combines body contouring with liposuction for Ottawa patients who want to achieve a more complete body makeover.

Facial Enhancement

Facial enhancement treatments also are available. Options range from surgical procedures, such as a face lift or eyelid surgery, to dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and more. In addition, Dr. Silverman offers laser skin resurfacing and related procedures.
