About Us

Excellence in cosmetic enhancement. That's what drives us, and that's what you can expect from our surgeons and our staff. Patients visit Ottawa Plastic Surgery from cities throughout Ontario such as Cornwall, Kingston, and Brockville; as well as Gatineau and other cities in Quebec due to our far-reaching reputation for superior care and results.

If you're ready to come see us in person for plastic surgery or non-surgical treatments in Ottawa, we're ready to help you get the results you want. You can request a consultation or call us to book an appointment at (613) 792-4137.

The Ottawa Plastic Surgery Approach

Proud to be the only practice in our city that's singularly focused on aesthetic surgery, Ottawa Plastic Surgery is a place where artistry and technique come together to produce the best possible results for our patients.

At Ottawa Plastic Surgery, you'll find forward-thinking approaches from two Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC), with a range of face, breast, and body procedures, as well as nonsurgical medical spa treatments.

You'll also find that our real specialty is patient care. Every patient gets our undivided attention, from your initial consultation all the way to your final postoperative visit.

Dr. Howard Silverman

Since founding the practice in 1999, Dr. Silverman has become a pillar of the region's plastic surgery community. An Ottawa native, he happily returned to the area after training at the University of Toronto and the Toronto Hospital, and completing residencies abroad at Yale University and Albany Medical College.

What matters most to him: answering every question as thoroughly possible, continuously evolving as a plastic surgeon, and making every patient feel safe, comfortable, and confident.

Dr. Kirsty Boyd

Dr. Boyd joined the practice in 2016, bringing a wealth of experience in her own right. During Dr. Boyd's medical training, she was privileged to work with some of the leaders in plastic surgery at Queen's University in Kingston, Western University in London, and Ottawa University.

With expertise in both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery for the breasts, body, and face, she is adept at delivering transformative outcomes to patients of all ages.

Our Staff

In addition to Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd, it takes a team to keep Ottawa Plastic Surgery running smoothly. Get to know our front desk staff, our care coordinator, and our nurses.
