38 Year Old Male Went for Pec Implants - Toronto, ON

I am a 38 year old transgender male and after many years of working out hard, I still couldn't get my pecs to grow so I opted to get pec implants and I couldn't be happier with them. They look natural and feel great. Dr Dupere showed me several samples during our consults (both on skype and in person) and I was able to decide on a size that would look natural with my body shape and frame. My abs were showing a bit before but the ab etching really makes them "pop". These two procedures (ab etching and pec implants) are in my opinion highly specialized and I have had people tell me horror stories particularly of the pec implants being too big, or moving around and so on, and all these led me to really do my research before choosing a Dr to go with. I decided to have Dr Dupere do my surgeries because not only is he such a personable and highly talented artist who strives for perfect results for his patients but his staff, Erin, Willians, Danielle and the rest of the team at the visage clinic are simply amazing! It's because of their professionalism and just how each of them went above and beyond to make everything run smoothly for me that I decided I must travel all the way from Los Angeles to Toronto to the very capable and experienced hands of Dr Dupere and his awesome team for this surgery. Phone calls and emails were always answered so promptly by each of them including Dr Dupere himself which is just amazing. I am so glad I went with them and I can tell you honestly that if I ever need anything else done, I will be heading back to them. I have already recommended the Visage Clinic to other family and trans friends who want surgery. I couldn't be happier with how smoothly everything went from my very first Skype consult with Dr Dupere to the in-person consult in his office where he explained everything to me and told me all the realistic expectations and all the way through to the actual surgery day and all post op consults. The surgery itself went great. I was put under general anesthesia and woke up feeling pretty good with pain that I would rate as a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10 on the pecs and abs area but this was very well controlled with the prescription meds the Dr had for me prior to the surgery and by day 8th or 9th day, the pain was only at only a 2 on the scale of 1 to 10 which meant I needed less meds and could take just Tylenol for it. I LOVE how my pecs look now. Very masculine, athletic and full and my abs are also much more visible. This was an early 40th birthday gift to myself and I just feel very blessed to have found this Dr and his team. I am ecstatic with my results and love how my chest looks when I look at it topless or in a tight tshirt. My wife says I look really more masculine and sexy which always puts a smile on my face. Is the surgery worth it? Absolutely, 100% yes!

Dr Dupere is very kind and has a personable bedside manner. From my very first consult with him, I knew he would be my only choice for my surgeries because of how compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable he is. As a transgender man, it was also comforting to know that he is always open to working with trans patients in an affirming and caring manner and that he has indeed worked with some trans patients before. His results on pec implants, lipo and ab etching (my 3 procedures) speak for themselves as shown in the actual patient pictures on his site and when all my swelling subsides, I will gladly post some pictures here so you can see my results as well. I am just so happy! I am now just over 2 weeks post op and will definitely be updating with pictures of the pecs and abs once all swelling (particularly the ab etching swelling) subsides. So far so good with everything and I already love how my pecs look with and without my shirt on! Dr Dupere is an artist and a perfectionist with a kind heart and always smiling which put me at ease and also, the entire staff, Erin, Willians, Danielle and the rest of the team at the visage clinic showed great professionalism, politeness and kindness too which helped the whole procedure go very smoothy for me especially as I was traveling internationally for the surgery. I highly recommend Dr Dupere and the entire visage team.
