Meet Dr. Emad M. Guirguis
Dr. Emad M. Guirguis, or “Dr. G” as most patients fondly refer to him as, graduated from the Department of Medicine at McMaster University and completed his residency in General Surgery at the University of Ottawa.
Dr. Guirguis is also certified by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) to perform cosmetic surgery.
He is recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons as a specialist in General Surgery. That means he has been trained to perform surgical procedures, treating both the external and internal parts of the body, such as:
- Skin and other Soft Tissue
- The abdomen and digestive system
- Internal organs, such as the liver
His extensive training enables him to recognize problems for which a gynecologist, urologist, orthopedic surgeon or plastic surgeon would normally deal with, providing early detection and management of those problems.
In fact, one of the most important medical services Dr. Guirguis provides is to perform necessary corrective surgery on patients who have had complications arising from treatments performed by surgeons in other surgical fields, including plastic surgery. The Quality Assurance Committee of the CPSO has commented on the high quality of care that Dr. Guirguis provides.
5 Reasons Why Dr. Guirguis is a Top Cosmetic Surgeon
- Resolving Complications.
Dr. Guirguis has resolved various complications that arise from surgeries and treatments performed by other doctors. As a result, he has a profound understanding of what not to do during surgery. The techniques he applies during your surgery are all designed to minimize and prevent the complications that he has seen during his 22 years of serving as a general surgeon.
- Never Operating “Blind.”
Dr. Guirguis has been trained in complex surgical techniques that have been designed to not just address the concern at hand, but also minimize trauma and improve your recovery process. For example, Dr. Guirguis always makes incisions in areas of which he has direct view. Not operating “blind” allows him to know exactly where he makes an incision and positions it to avoid any unnecessary damage to veins or organs located in the area. “Blind” dissection is a common reason why complications arise during surgery and can also contribute to a lengthier and more intense recovery for the patient.
- Advanced Techniques.
Dr. Guirguis has refined his surgical techniques so that every aspect of your surgery is designed in a way that will enable you to recover faster. For example, during your breast augmentation, Dr. Guirguis is careful to avoid any unnecessary trauma that could cause excess bleeding by performing precise dissection with direct visualization of all tissues in the target area. Trauma is reduced by keeping the amount of bleeding to a minimum, so you won’t have as an intense or lengthy recovery that is normally associated with less advanced techniques. Dr. Guirguis has successfully achieved one of the lowest rates of capsular contracture in the country.
Complications arising from a procedure performed by Dr. Guirguis are very rare but in the unlikely event one does occur, you won’t have to be transported to a hospital where another surgeon will need to address the problem. Not only is our surgical facility fully equipped with all that is needed, Dr. Guirguis is trained to deal with any issues that may arise.
- Taking the time where it matters the most.
Another way in which Dr. Guirguis helps expedite your recovery is his advanced technique of closing incisions. Dr. Guirguis uses a type of “Quill” suture, a dissolvable monofilament that is more expensive and takes a few minutes longer to apply but reduces the risk of negative skin reactions. As a result, less noticeable scarring results.
