The Ambroise Paré, Pierre Cherest and Hartmann Clinics are all authorized to provide plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. A dozen plastic surgeons, all qualified in plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, practice in our facility.


Cosmetic surgery

At the Ambroise Paré, Pierre Cherest and Hartmann Clinics, cosmetic surgery goes hand in hand with the scientific rigor of the surgical, anesthetic and paramedical teams to guarantee optimal surgical safety, management and personalized post-operative follow-up.


The different aesthetic surgery interventions offered in our facilities include:

  • Face and neck lift (cervicofacial lift): this procedure improves the appearance of the face and makes it look younger by restoring tension to tissues that have relaxed with time.
  • Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty): this procedure provides a younger appearance by correcting drooping upper eyelids (superior blepharoplasty) and/or by removing fleshy bags from the lower eyelids (inferior blepharoplasty).
  • Rhinoplasty: this is cosmetic nose surgery, which allows the creation of a nose that fits in better with the rest of the face by correcting a bend, removing a bump and/or narrowing an overly large nose.
  • Ear pinning (otoplasty).
  • Breast augmentation using breast implants: this procedure corrects breast hypotrophy (breasts considered by the patient to be too small) by placing implants in front of or behind the pectoral muscle.
  • Fat injection (lipofilling). Breast lipofilling, or autologous fat transplantation, confers moderate breast augmentation, without requiring the use of breast implants.
  • Breast reduction: this procedure surgically reduces the size of overly large breasts, which often cause back pain and difficulties in daily life (dressing, sports, etc.).
  • Breast ptosis: surgical breast ptosis treatment corrects breast sagging that occurs with age, after pregnancy or nursing. It can be performed with or without breast implants, depending on the desired size.
  • Abdominoplasty: this intervention restores tension to the stomach tissue, which can be stretched out or saggy, most often after multiple pregnancies or significant weight loss.
  • Liposuction: this intervention involves aspirating localized fat collections, particularly from the stomach, thighs and love handles, to redraw the body contours.
  • Arm lift: this procedure restores tautness to arm tissue, which can become saggy with age or after significant weight loss. It may be performed in combination with liposuction.
  • Thigh lift: this procedure restores tautness to thigh tissue, which can become saggy with age or after significant weight loss. It may be performed in combination with liposuction.

Reconstructive plastic surgery

Reconstructive plastic surgery aims to reconstruct tissues that are deformed (tuberous breast surgery, inverted nipples, etc.) or have suffered damage due to illness, cancer (breast reconstructive surgery after mastectomy) or an accident (burn repair).

  • Breast reconstruction after cancer: breast reconstruction after cancer can be performed after or at the same time as breast ablation. This procedure aims to restore the volume of the breast by different methods (breast implant, latissimus dorsi flap, lipofilling, etc.). The areola and the nipple are typically reconstructed using grafts during a second procedure.
  • Gynecomasty: this refers to an abnormally large volume of breast tissue in a man. This can be surgically corrected after adolescence.
  • Inverted nipples
  • Tuberous breasts
  • Body lift: also known as circular abdominoplasty, the body lift is a surgery that reshapes the figure around the stomach, back and buttocks after significant weight loss, typically after bariatric surgery involving bypass or sleeve gastrectomy.
  • Abdominoplasty
  • Arm lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Reduction nymphoplasty: this surgery reduces the size of overly prominent labia minora. This anatomical feature can interfere with sexual activity and create problems with dressing or engaging in certain sports.
