After having my son 5 years ago, my body was not the same. I felt ashamed to wear a bikini and even worse I couldn't let my husband look at me without clothes on. I fell into a depressed state which caused tension in my marriage and affected my son. I finally decided to have a tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. I was happy in the first few weeks, however the scars I was left with caused me once again to feel depressed. My husband who was always so supportive of my body told me I was beautiful no matter what, but I didn't listen. I hated my body and the scars. Now don't get me wrong, my surgeon did an excellent job and I would definitely go back to him and recommend his work (Dr. Krau in Coral Gables if you're wondering). My personal body shaming issues are to blame. I then stumbled across The Basma Hameed Clinic in Toronto, Canada (they also have a location in Beverly Hills, USA). Basma uses Mico-pigment implantation on scars to help them blend with your skin colour! My scars hyperpigmentated (went darker rather than lighter) so they stand out drastically. I have completed 3 out my 6 sessions and Basma has been able to change the scar colour and match it with my skin and now they are hardly noticeable. I am excited to see the final results in the next few months! Once I finish my package I will post pictures to show the before and after. You may also check out her website for more information. I wanted to share my story for those who have lost hope and confidence. I know I did, but this procedure has helped me in so many ways!
Tummy Tuck & Breast Lift Scar Cover Up - Toronto, ON

Ms. Hameed was extremely professional. During my initial consultation she took her time getting to know me and understand why I felt I needed this procedure. Ms. Hameed then blended a colour to match my skin and took her time to perfect it. The clinic located in Toronto, Ontario was clean and welcoming. All staff members were courteous and understanding. I was quite impressed by their professionalism. After each treatment a technician would call to "check in" and ensure I am following the proper after care.
