After extensive research, I chose Dr. Barr for my breast augmentation based on his experience and the very positive feedback I had read and received after speaking to other clients. From my initial phone call to book a consult up to now, 8 months post-op, I have been so impressed and satisfied with my experience! I was slightly terrified about optional cosmetic surgery but I still can't get over how painless, literally and figuratively, the entire process was. After my 2 children, my A/small B cup breasts had lost all volume and were very droopy. Dr. Barr clearly went over my options and made an implant suggestion based on my desired outcome and body shape. I feel that he took everything "about me" into account and was very honest in what the outcome would be. My pre-op appointment was thorough and I went into surgery knowing exactly what to expect. His staff -in particular Karin, who is an angel- made me feel so informed and comfortable. The facilities are impeccable and comfortable. I woke from the surgery with such minimal discomfort I only took the prescribed pain meds for less than 12 hours and I was back at work 2 days later. Dr. Barr personally called me 1 day post-op and the conversation did not feel rushed "just part of the job". My scarring (under the breasts) is only slightly visible when I lift my breast and I couldn't be happier with my final results! Those who know I had the procedure have said how amazing they look and I have even received compliments from strangers...something I never thought would happen to me. I am still noticing change and they are only getting more natural looking each month (and that is not saying they look unnatural now!) The before and after photos he sent me blew me away and my only critique is that I didn't seek out this procedure earlier. At the end of the day, I would absolutely see Dr. Barr for any further procedures (I have already had a consult for a mini-tummy tuck) and would highly recommend him to my dearest friends -and have! In my opinion, Sudbury is very lucky to have such an experienced doctor and facility.

2nd surgery...Breast implant after lift as well as Botox on separate occasion. I am very happy. Post-Surgery pain was minimal. Only needed over the counter pain killers as early as 24hrs after surgery. Scars are minimal but the perfectionist in me affirms you need to be prepared and accept some level of scarring. I feel back to my old self. Any future surgery will be done through Dr Barr's office. He is very matter of fact....and guides you toward an aesthetic look that will keep everyone guessing (but think you look great, nonetheless.

Loved Dr. Barr, just had a breast reduction and liposuction today. His staff is amazing, accommodating, and friendly. He is reassuring, comedic, and polite. The staff at health sciences north was also great and made me feel comfortable in the OR. When I paged him for some nearly severe pain he called back within minutes and helped me solve my problem. Now to wait for the healing! Thank you Dr. Barr!

I'm very surprised to read such positive comments about Dr Barr. My experience was very different. He seemed very competent and knowledgeable at the consultation although arrogant. I accepted the arrogance as confidence, a good characteristic for a surgeon, so I booked appointments for liposuction and breast augmentation. The liposuction that he performed left a very large indentation that is very visible, even while clothed . Dr Barr advised that fat grafting (at my expense for some reason) would be the only way to correct for the excess fat that was removed. I've held off on having this problem fixed as the next situation, I will describe, has taken precedence. After the augmentation the breasts looked like Snoopy in profile with a very high lump on top and very low nipples. I was advised that the implants had been placed high but that they would drop to provide a more natural look once the swelling was gone. Dr Barr had told me that my nipples were a bit low to begin with but that the implants could correct the problem. He also said that a lift may have to be done so I was prepared for that possibility. Dr Barr decided that a Benelli lift should be done to correct the positioning of the areolae and nipples. This involved making an incisions around the circumference of the areolae. He said that the scarring should blend into the colour of the areolae and that within a couple months, if I was changing at the gym no one would notice the scarring. It's been many years since these surgeries and I've had a chronic infection that started the day after I had the stitches removed after the Benelli lift. I now have extremely disfiguring scars, misshapen areolae and the breasts still look like Snoopy. I communicated with Dr Barr's office and attended a couple followup appointments with Dr Barr. He prescribed a number of rounds of antibiotics and told me there was nothing he could do about the scarring and thought the positioning of the implants was good. He became rude and hostile and spoke to me with a very condescending tone as if I was annoying him with my issues. I've since been advised by a general surgeon that the breast will need to be cleaned out to remove the recurring infection. Once this has been successful a subsequent surgery will be required to properly position new implants and correct the positioning and scarring around the areolae. I've held off on further surgeries and have continued to treat the infection by alternating antibiotics. After the last infection, the breast formed a hole in the areola. Puss drains through this hole on an ongoing basis, which although gross, keeps the pain at a minimum and keeps the infection under control. I'm researching to find another plastic surgeon but feel hesitant to accept online ratings. I had read the reviews for Dr Barr and made my decision to choose him as my surgeon because of the positive feedback. I suspect that people feel hesitant, as I did, to leave negative comments. This makes it difficult when trying to choose a new plastic surgeon. I find it difficult to accept that I was the only person with such negative outcomes.

I recently had both liposuction and brachioplasty, on my upper arms, following a 76 lb. weight loss. I found the Barr staff very caring and professional. The clinic was spotless. Every detail of the procedures was explained. Written concise information and instructions and forms were also provided. Staff were very available to answer questions and give helpful support and advice. Dr. Barr did a super job. My surgery went well and I had lots of follow up inquiries from the staff including a phone call from Dr. Barr, himself, when I had returned home. I received all the medical supplies (bandages, compression sleeves etc.) in a take home bag. ) I am very pleased, so far, with the results. The incision was thin, did not pucker and is healing nicely. While I still have some bruising and a bit of swelling, it is only two weeks after the surgery! I expect, that it will look pretty good when a bit more time has passed. When I looked at a before photo, I was amazed at the difference! I had almost forgotten how baggy and large my upper arm was and now it is almost svelte, which is pretty awesome for a 65 year old. My sincere and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Barr and staff. I feel more like an attractive woman for the first time in many years. Sue Thompson, Iron Bridge, Ontario
