Education is Key!

What to expect during a consultation

During your first visit to our clinic, our goal is to get you comfortable with our team and your surgeon and to provide a clear understanding of the procedure. You’ll be greeted at reception by our friendly administrative assistant before your one-on-one sit-down with one of our surgeons.

Your consultation is spent meeting with one of our surgeons in a comfortable and private office setting, followed by a focused examination and procedural planning performed in an exam room. Either Dr. Silverman, Dr. Boyd, Dr. Frank, or Dr. Cormier, will go over the options, details, expectations, and risks of the surgery, and demonstrate possible results.

For breast-related consultations, we use Crisalix 3D Imaging to preview potential results with a computer simulation. As well, you will also have the opportunity to try on implants to get an idea of the look and feel, and your anticipated new silhouette and figure.

After a thorough examination, the surgeons will move the discussion to their office and continue to go through surgery expectations, potential risks, and results. This is your consultation and your body, and we encourage you to ask as many questions as you can think of here. We want to ensure you are comfortable, confident, and informed as you make decisions.

From there, you meet with our Patient Care Coordinator, Vanessa. She will guide you through the administrative side of your procedure, including the cost and booking of your surgery date.

What to expect after your surgery

Your first follow-up appointment will usually be 1-5 days after your procedure. One to two weeks later, you can expect to have your sutures removed, and from there we will continue to schedule appointments as necessary.

Depending on the surgery, the timeline for follow-up can range from 3 months to 1 year. Regardless of the procedure, you can expect to see us a lot post-surgery, and we are available to you 24/7 during your recovery!

In-house treatments

For added convenience, we perform many procedures from the comfort of our facility, including all of our medical aesthetic services.

  • “Best Experience!”

    Have had the best experience with choosing OPS and Dr. Howard Silverman for my breast augmentation. Professional, clean and friendly environment/staff. Dr. Silverman went above and beyond to make sure I received the results I was hoping for. I highly recommend him.

  • “Best Plastic Surgeon!”

    The best plastic surgeon in the greater Ottawa area . Great service and Dr. Silverman is attentive to your concerns and needs . This is my place. No regrets going here as I was referred by 2 friends I know for 30 years.

  • “Outstanding!”

    Dr. Boyd is outstanding on all fronts. Not only does she have a stellar medical training background, Dr. Boyd is attentive and a genuinely nice person. She addressed all my questions and concerns at my first consultation for a breast lift. The surgery was on time and everything went perfectly.

  • “So very happy!”

    I am so very happy with the early results of my masseter Botox treatment. I have been a serious grinder for years which has led to cracked teeth and the need to wear a night guard. It has been 2 weeks and I have already had significant relief – no headaches or neck pain. Thank you Christena McNab!!

  • “Amazing Results”

    I did my research before choosing OPS, and I am so glad I did, the staff is amazing and their work is impeccable!!! I live 2 hours away from their office and used them for my surgery (amazing results!!)

  • “Best In Town”

    I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing and wonderful my experience with Dr. Silverman was. I came away feeling educated and understood. He’s honest, kind, thoughtful and compassionate. And VERY knowledgeable. Look no more if you’re on a search for the best plastic surgeon in town.

  • Kindness of Dr. Frank

    I love OPS! From the second you walk in and get a warm greeting from Romeo or Kate to the professionalism and kindness of Dr. Frank, I felt right at home. I got my blepharoplasty last summer and I’m extremely pleased with the results. I’m actually considering getting something else done.

  • Experience was exceptional

    I’ve had 2 procedures done with Dr. Frank over the past few years, the most recent one being at their new surgical facility. From the moment I walked through the door, to everyone I met, my experience was exceptional.

  • Dr. Cormier was fabulous!

    Dr. Cormier was absolutely fabulous, from beginning to end! I was extremely anxious of the procedure. I appreciated that he took the time to explain everything to me before, during, and after the surgery. I am healing really well and could not be happier with the result.
