Dr. Philip Solomon

The principles that we use to guide how these types of products are in place to ensure that the distribution of the facial filler is even, and at the correct depth; to ensure that symmetry is the highest priority; and to not fill a given area beyond the accepted limits. Enhancing your natural beauty is the ultimate goal. We always ensure that our patients are educated about any side effects that may occur as the result of their filler injection.

In order to achieve natural looking results that aren’t over done or obvious, consult with one of Canada’s leading experts in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Philip Solomon is an Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon practicing Facial Plastic Surgery and has an advanced understanding of facial anatomy.

If you are interested in learning more about facial fillers or on any other non-surgical cosmetic procedures, we would be happy to speak with you directly.

The first step in getting started is to schedule a consultation, at which time you will be assessed and Dr. Solomon will discuss your aesthetic goals. Also, we encourage all of our patients to bring forth their medical history as well as any questions or concerns they may have at any point in the process, as we would be more than happy to answer them.
