Breast Augmentation in Ottawa
Women may consider undergoing breast reduction or breast augmentation surgery for many reasons. Some women may not feel confident in their natural breast size, or their breasts may have changed after pregnancy or weight loss. Others may feel their breasts are asymmetrical, causing body image issues. Breast augmentation surgery can help improve a woman‘s self–confidence and self–image. It can also help a woman feel more comfortable in her clothes and with her body. Breast augmentation surgery can be a safe and effective way to achieve beautiful, natural results.
Dr James Lacey
When did you decide to become a plastic surgeon?
I rotated through plastic surgery as a medical student while at McGill University 30 years ago. I was fascinated by how real the anatomy looked under an operating microscope and that plastic surgeons are called upon as problem solvers when other surgical specialties get into trouble. It amazed me that plastic surgeons restore function, reconstruct missing parts and tissues, and make people feel better on the inside and outside with cosmetics surgery.
Why did you choose to work in Ottawa?
My first practice was five busy years at the Royal Victoria Hospital in a Barrie. This is a large regional hospital with very busy clinics and ER, and 13 operating rooms. It was a great environment to start work as a young plastic surgeon and provided lots of opportunities. However, when I started a family we found Barrie too far from Montreal (where I had grown up) and my practice too busy. Ottawa is a great place to raise a family, is still close to Montreal, and there are more plastic surgeons per capita, making for a better practice and family lifestyle.
What is your favourite part of the job?
My favourite part of the job is dealing with my patients. I enjoy the interaction with my patients and consider myself a doctor first ; listening to and examining my patients carefully to make an accurate diagnosis, and as a surgeon second; to address the problem using my hands. It is very satisfying to make a difference in someone’s health; physical or emotional, and know that you were responsible for it.
What motivates you?
I try to do a better job on each surgery I do; constantly looking for things that I could do better or differently to improve the outcome. Knowing that I am doing my best, and also making patients happy and healthier is the best type of payment and motivator.
What do you do outside of the operating room?
I am a proud father, with three lovely children. I enjoy doing yoga, working on my sailboat and sailing, and going to the cottage to ski and relax. I am now thinking of projects such as humanitarian plastic surgery in Jamaica and Mexico, and getting into woodworking.
