Toronto Plastic Surgeon Moves Visage Clinic to Yorkville
The new office on Hazelton Avenue is a “gem,” according to Dr. Marc DuPéré, Toronto plastic surgeon and founder of the successful, long-running practice.
Toronto, Ontario (June 2016) — Visage Clinic, established by Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré, has opened its new flagship location in the city’s chic, tree-lined Yorkville neighbourhood, where the exclusive clinic offers state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments ranging from high-end skin care to customized cosmetic surgery.
“It is a truly exquisite, boutique-style office with a top-of-the-line surgical centre,” Dr. DuPéré says. “It is a 5,000-square-foot space dedicated to beauty, cosmetics, and surgical safety.”
The 2-story clinic is housed at the corner of Hazelton and Davenport avenues in the European-inspired limestone building recently developed by Sam Mizrahi, one of Canada’s most respected builders, and designed by internationally known designer Brian Gluckstein.
“We’re steps from the Royal Ontario Museum, high-end shopping, such as Tiffany, Cartier, Holt Renfrew, and Louis Vuitton, and surrounded by hotels including the Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Windsor Arms, and The Hazelton Hotel,” Dr. DuPéré says. “Plus, we’re within walking distance of the Bay Street and Rosedale subway stations and only a few minutes from the Bay Street Financial District. It’s truly a wonderful location.”
In addition to the new Hazelton Avenue space, Dr. DuPéré serves patients outside Toronto in the Richmond Hill area, which remains a busy practice offering an array of aesthetic treatments. Dr. DuPéré established the original Visage Clinic on John Street 14 years ago. He says moving to the Yorkville location was about building a new, upscale surgical centre that met the expectations of his plastic surgery patients in the heart of Toronto.
“Our new office is much more elegant than our former location on John Street. I now have my own surgical centre and a clinic with the latest technologies that you would typically find only in hospitals,” he says. “We have a fantastic medical aesthetician, and we’re offering more facial peel treatments. We’ve also acquired new, innovative lasers to provide our patients with the most advanced procedures available.”
The Yorkville clinic features a modern, warm ambiance featuring hand-crafted walnut, ebony, and olive wood with natural accents in stone, linen, and leather.
“My love of nature was the primary influence as I conceptualized the space with the help of C & Partners Architects,” Dr. DuPéré says. “The first floor is reserved for consultations and non-surgical treatments such as injectables, lasers, and facial treatments, with its own waiting room. The second floor is dedicated to our surgical patients, with a separate waiting room for loved ones and families, along with rooms where patients can choose to remain overnight under medical supervision. Subject to availability, out-of-town patients can also choose to stay in our building’s guest suite, where they have 24/7 concierge service and easy access to our medical centre and our nurses without having to stay at hotels and travel by taxis.”
Additionally, the new surgical centre is accredited by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and is the most up-to-date facility in Toronto with the latest 2016 standards for safety and accessibility. These include everything from advanced air quality to top-of-the-line sterilizing systems, walled copper anesthesia gas piping to an operating room designed for easy cleaning, with rounded corners and hand-sealed/welded flooring that curves upward over the walls, Dr. DuPéré says.
“We went above and beyond with the safety standards,” he says. “These continue to evolve over time, and we feel confident our surgical suite will exceed the standards for accreditation for many years to come. It’s just the right thing to do for our patients and their peace of mind.”
Privacy is also a priority in the design of the clinic, Dr. DuPéré says, with an exclusive elevator connecting the first and second floors and an inconspicuous, private exit from the surgical unit to the underground parking lot so patients can keep their results discreet.
Dr. DuPéré enjoys a reputation for facelift, body contouring and breast augmentation surgeries, and the Toronto clinic also features aromatherapy and high-end, medical-grade skin care lines such as Forlle’d, Obagi®, and SkinMedica® in a spa-like environment.
“Yorkville is the location to be in Toronto,” Dr. DuPéré says. “I appreciated the previous space, but our new clinic is so much nicer, warmer, and more elegant, with a thoroughly modern surgical centre. Our clinic’s top priorities are patient safety and excellent results, which are provided in a comfortable and personalized environment. It is truly a gem.”
