5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

51 Years Old, Ready for a Breast Lift - No Implants. Ottawa, ON

Dr Silverman and his office staff are very professional and friendly, I never felt embarrassed or ashamed. Found Dr Silverman to be easy to talk with going thru this process.

My Girls Will Be 4 This June - Ottawa, ON

Dr Silvermen is an amazing plastic surgeon. He cares about his patients, and is very knowledgeable of any questions you may have. His staff are also very friendly and it was a very good experience over all. I will go back to him when I need to get new implants put in. If he's still around by then lol.

29 Yo, No Kids, Breast Lift After Weight Loss - Ottawa, ON

I had a breast lift with Dr. Silverman a month ago and could not be more pleased with the everything from the first consultation, to the operation day, to the results. He is kind, punctual and thorough. Friendly and respectful. I never felt rushed and I could frequently sense his excitement and passion for his work. He explained everything about the risks, expectations, procedure, etc. I felt fully prepared. His staff is great (shoutout to the ever-tolerant Vanessa!), supportive and quick to respond to email questions. And the actual end product looks fantastic. I am so pleased. The greatest compliment I was received was, upon showing them to a family friend who had also lost moderate weight recently: "You know, this makes me really think about getting it done, too." I would recommend the procedure and Dr. S in a heartbeat.

New boobs, happier mama..

Dr Silverman is an amazing Dr. He took his time to measure my chest, evaluate my weight and my goal weight. He examined my skin elasticity and explained all of my options. He took the time to listen to what I wanted as a final result, which was a natural result, not much bigger than my B cup. He suggested what he thought would look good on my particular frame, which was over the muscle due to my particular body type. I was super nervous about spending money on myself at my age and my expected result; but, he was kind, patient, sweet and totally disarming. My experience has been 100% positive. His surgical skills are top notch, I have minimal scarring or pain 4 weeks post op. I hope that anyone considering BA or liposuction in this area, will appreciate the talent that this Dr has.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

5 months PO TT 6 weeks PO Breast Lift

I did extensive research on this Dr. before choosing him. He is very meticulous and takes pride in his work. It has been over a year since doing my Tummy Tuck and Breast lift and I am still thrilled with the results. I am an ordinary woman (plain Jane) who was not happy in her her own skin. Well I am happy now! Dr Silverman skilfully removed the skin. I emphasize on SKILFULLY because my TT scar is symmetric and healed smooth and flat. When he did my boobs, my scars, placement of the nipples and size were equal on both sides. I would send anyone to him in a heartbeat.

I Finally Have my New Boobs :)))) - Ottawa, ON

Dr. Silverman is awesome. As simple as that. My breast are gorgeous perfect size as he listen to what I really wanted.

33, No Kids, over 100 Lbs Weight Loss - Ottawa, ON

I had 3 personal and very happy referrals to doctor Silverman. In the consultation he was professional and informative. I felt very comfortable even though I was so nervous.

2 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

475cc High Projection Silicone - Ottawa, ON

Pro's Dr. Silverman was professional and answered any questions. Unfortunately he didn't give much pre op and post op advise. I'm now seeing a new surgeon in Toronto for an other revision and it's really made me realize how much Dr Silverman lacks communication. It really makes me wish I would have done more research on my surgeon.

43 Year Old, Athletic Mom of 1, 370cc under the muscle - Ottawa, ON

I am going in for my surgery tomorrow!!!! I am currently wearing a padded 34d (Victoria Secret) but honestly there is nothing there but skin lol! I am getting 370cc under the muscle, full profile silicone gel, and a lift. I really want to have nice perky young looking breasts! I cannot wait, I am so nervous!!! I am confident in my PS, Dr. Howard Silverman, and I trust he will make me look...
