Between injectables, peels, Thermi skin tightening, and IPL treatments, we’ve got non-surgical cosmetic treatments available for all types of concerns.

Dr. Ahmad – Not Just a Plastic Surgeon, But a Guardian Angel

dr-ahmad-sue-ann-levyAfter falling into a window while taking out the leaves this past fall and severely cutting her leg, Toronto Sun journalist, Sue-Ann Levy had a rough go during her ER experience at Toronto General. While she was treated by friendly nurses and fairly prompt care, her wound became virulently infected, which left her realizing just how urgently she required additional care.

When our very own Dr. Ahmad learned of Sue-Ann’s experience, he wanted to help in any way possible. Dr. Ahmad kindly reached out to Sue-Ann where he arranged to see her to make sure that her healing process would begin to move in the right direction.

After seeing Sue and assessing her wound, Dr. Ahmad took her under his wing and told her the truth that if the wound didn’t heal properly, she would be in for months of painful surgeries. He also advised her that her upcoming trip to Florida would be too risky and should be postponed until the wound closed up.

Most importantly, Dr. Ahmad got Sue-Ann into wound care at a Toronto Community Care Access Centre clinic where, as she states, she “was given nothing, but excellent treatment for nearly five weeks.” Dr. Ahmad even took time to call Sue-Ann at home to advise her that he was switching up her antibiotic to one that would cure both infections, and she began looking forward to weekly visits and political chats with him at our Mississauga clinic.

We are so proud to share this story, and we take great pride in having Dr. Ahmad on staff at The Plastic Surgery Clinic. Not only is Dr. Ahmad a leading plastic surgeon in the GTA, but he’s also one who provides and unprecedented level of patient care.

Dr. Lista Featured in the Online Issue of Fashion Magazine

Non-surgical skincare treatments have become an increasingly popular method of facial reconstruction with a growing number of plastic surgeons recommending it to their patients. Truth be told, patients are seeking alternatives to going under the knife that aim to contour the jawline, resulting in a younger looking (and slimmer looking) face. Nowadays, injections are not only seen as treatments for anti-aging, but also as non-surgical options for contouring the jawline.

Invasive Treatments

Surgical facial reconstruction follows a traditional invasive method, and while the results of these procedures can be quite impressive and appear almost instantly, this traditional approach usually involves extended downtime and various potential risks and complications. Though most patients are well suited to undergo surgery, some may not be of fit, or would rather not have to deal with post-surgical downtime.

Injection Treatments: The Non-Surgical Face Lift

Injection treatments have revolutionized anti-aging and facial reconstruction because they do not involve invasive incisions to reframe or reshape the skin on the face. Non-surgical injection treatments instead achieve the goal of facial reshaping without making a single incision to the face or neck.

The rapidly growing awareness among patients and injections has made it a preferred treatment of choice for many. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we have seen a drastic increase in non-surgical skincare patients, primarily for injection treatments for anti-aging and of course, facial reconstruction. In fact, Dr. Lista shares his insights on injections for reframing the jawline in the recent online issue of Fashion Magazine.

CoolSculpting Featured in Best Health Magazine, Summer Issue

CoolSculpting has become an increasingly popular fat reduction procedure with a growing number of skincare experts recommending it to their patients. Nowadays, patients are looking for alternatives to surgical techniques that reduce unwanted fat, and this unique treatment approach adopted by CoolSculpting sets it apart from not just invasive treatments, but also from many other non-invasive alternatives available on the market today.

Invasive Treatments

Surgical fat reduction treatments such as liposuction or abdominoplasty follow a traditional invasive approach to eliminate unwanted fat cells. The results with such surgical procedures can be quite impressive and appear almost instantly. The challenge with this traditional approach however is that surgery usually involves extended downtime and various potential risks and complications. Though most patients are suited for invasive procedures, some may not be fit to undergo surgery, or would rather not have to deal with the post-surgical downtime associated with an invasive approach to fat reduction.

CoolSculpting: A Revolutionary Treatment to Invasive Fat Reduction 

CoolSculpting has introduced a revolutionary cooling approach that achieves the same goals of fat reduction, but without the challenges associated with invasive treatments. Moreover, CoolSculpting does not involve painful incisions to suck out unwanted fat, nor does it involve an aggressive removal of fat cells. CoolSculpting, instead, achieves the goal of fat reduction without making a single incision to the body and therefore requires no downtime. It permanently freezes unwanted fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue and is typically free of any risks and complications.

The rapidly growing awareness among patients and CoolSculpting has made it a treatment of choice for many. In fact, The Plastic Surgery Clinic has been featured in the Summer Issue of Best Health Magazine, as editor-in-chief, Beth Thompson, underwent a CoolSculpting procedure to help get her body bikini ready for the summer.

Our very own registered nurse, Jenny Cajucom performed CoolSculpting on a Best Health editor, where just after two months, she noticed a major difference in the overall look and feel of her stomach. “I’m about halfway to three months and I’ve noticed that my pants are already looser. Yay! I’m finally looking forward to slipping into a skimpy little swim number,” says Thompson.
