Breast Augmentation in Ottawa
There are many reasons why women may consider undergoing breast augmentation surgery. This powerful surgical technique is capable of increasing the breast’s natural size and volume, and can also be used to help reverse the effects of pregnancy and weight changes, or correct any asymmetry that may be present. Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective technique that can deliver beautiful, natural results.
Dr. Ian MacArthur
When did you decide to become a plastic surgeon?
When I was accepted into medical school, I really had no idea what area of specialization to pursue. I’m the only physician in my family so I didn’t have much exposure to the different specialties. Because of this I spent a great deal of time in medical school job shadowing in different areas, and as soon as I set foot in an operating room I knew that it was the right place for me. My specific interest in plastic surgery came from the wide variety of operations that could be performed, everything from cleft lip repair to hand surgery to cosmetic breast surgery. Plastic surgery is a problem-solving specialty, and I liked the idea that the same surgical principles could be applied to seemingly disparate medical issues.
Why did you choose to work in Ottawa?
After my fellowship in Miami I wanted to come back to Canada and I had some choices about where to live. I had been to Ottawa many times before, and had always found it to be a beautiful city filled with friendly people, as well as being a great place to start a family. Since moving here in 2016 we’ve been made to feel very welcome by the community at large and have had a great time exploring Ottawa and the surrounding area.
What made you join the KPCS team?
There were a few reasons that I wanted to work with the team at KPCS. When I first visited the clinic I was very impressed with the level of commitment that everyone displayed to the cosmetic surgery patients, as well as the efforts that were taken to ensure that the patients had the best possible outcomes. The on-site surgery center is the only one of its kind for plastic surgery in Ottawa, and it is able to provide 100% focused treatment for cosmetic surgery patients while providing a private, discrete environment.
What is your favorite part of the job?
Being in the operating room is the best part of my day, although a close second is seeing my patients on their first post-operative visit after surgery. Seeing the looks on their faces once the dressings come down and they can see their results for the first time is the most rewarding aspect of my job. Being able to see the difference you have made in a patient’s life is very powerful, and is a privilege that I greatly respect.
What motivates you?
The biggest focus in my professional life has been to provide the best surgical results possible to our patients at KPCS, and make sure that they feel very comfortable and attended to during their surgical experience. Our cosmetic surgery patients invest a lot of trust in our abilities as plastic surgeons when they visit to our clinic, and it’s essential that we are able to deliver the results they expect.
What do you do outside of the operating room?
Time outside of the OR is becoming less and less available, but when I do find some free time I try to stay active. One of the reasons we moved to Ottawa was that it is a very active city with many opportunities to enjoy the outdoor hobbies. Running is very important to me, as well as cycling, hiking and skiing, and I recently learned how to sail. I think exercise is important and, among other benefits, helps me stay relaxed and focused in the operating room.
