Like all aspects of Dr. Mulholland’s private plastic surgery practice, he has been able to assemble an excellent staff of very knowledgeable, kind and caring nurses to ensure the best possible quality of experience in the recovery rooms. Your SpaMedica recovery nurses have all had years of experience in post-op care and have worked for Dr. Mulholland for a long time. All recovery room staff are fully qualified RNs with recovery experience and have had yearly re-certification in advanced cardiac life support in addition to years of clinical experience.  Over the decade and half that Dr. Mulholland has built, owned and operated SpaMedica with over 300 operations a year, there has never been a serious life-threatening event at SpaMedica. Part of this incredible safety record is that we make sure to select the right, healthy patients and ensure all the pre-operative tests are normal. Excellent recovery room nursing care is also a major part in our safety record.

After executing excellent aesthetic face and body enhancement results in the OR, Dr. Mulholland ensures that your post-operative care experience is excellent under the care and attention of Sharon Asensi, RN.  Sharon has years of OR and hospital ward experience and has also worked for Dr. Mulholland in the OR itself for 10 years. In general, you will see Dr. Mulholland one or two times in the immediate first or second week to ensure that the results of his surgery with you are healing well. But, you will rely mostly on Dr. Mulholland’s excellent and very qualified senior post-operative nurse, Sharon, RN.  Sharon is an excellent, full-time post-operative care nurse with years of OR and recovery experience. She works closely with Dr. Mulholland’s patients and techniques. Sharon will be the one to delicately remove your sutures and drains and assess your early post-operative care in conjunction with Dr. Mulholland.

Although Dr. Mulholland will routinely see you on one or two occasions early to ensure all is healing well, it is the care and attention of the Post Operative RN team and Sharon that gets you through the routine elements of post-op care. She will assist you with garment removal, transitioning compression foam, removing sutures and drains and wound care.

Ida, Dr. Mulholland’s injectable and hair restoration patient coordinator.  Ida has worked with Dr. Mulholland for years. Patients love her smile and kind, attentive approach to scheduling their injection appointments and FUE hair restoration treatments. Contact: Ida@SpaMedica.com or 416-922-2868 ext 242

Ida comes out of the service, entertainment and hospitality industry where she perfected her customer-oriented support and service commitment.  Ida was also an actor prior to working with Dr Mulholland. Ida has been Dr. Mulholland’s Injectable and FUE Hair transplantation coordinator for several years.  Ida’s job is to work with the 600 patients that Dr. Mulholland personally injects with Botox Injectable and soft tissue fillers to ensure they get their appointments on time and receive the optimal customer service value. Not only do patients love Ida’s warm smile and personality, they love that she doesn’t forget them when they are due for an injectable treatment.  Ida also manages and oversees Dr. Mulholland’s very busy hair transplantation service.  Dr. Mulholland helped pioneer the non scarring FUE (follicular unit extraction and transplantation) Neograft and Artas robotic and automated hair transplantation. These are now one of the very busy aspects of his Toronto practice and Ida consults and coordinates the flow of FUE patient scheduling.


About the SpaMedica Hair Restoration Team

Dr. Mulholland was the first physician in Canada and the United states to pioneer and perfect the art and science of automated follicular unit extraction (FUE) and transplantation (FUET).  Dr. Mulholland purchased the first automated FUE harvest system, called the Calvitron in 1997. Over the past 7 years, SpaMedica has become Canada’s premier FUE hair transplantation centre with the most experience, technology, artistry and a reputation as Toronto’s finest FUE hair transplantation facility.

One of the earlier FUE devices

Figure 7.  The earliest automated FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) device, called the Calivtron, purchased by Dr. Mulholland in 1997. Dr. Mulholland was the very first physician in North America to abandon strip grafting technique and to adopt the linear scar-less automated FUE procedure.

Over 5 years ago, Dr. Mulholland invested in the NeoGraft automated FUE hair extraction and implantation system. This automated FUE device allowed, for the first time, to harvest over 3000 follicular units and implant them in one day. This numerical revolution was made possible by the enhanced Neograft technology.

Neograft Automated FUE Device

Two years ago, Dr. Mulholland and the SpaMedica hair transplantation team invested in the Artas, Robotic FUE harvest system. This Robotic FUE device facilitates even more accurate harvest of larger FUE grafts. The combination of Neograft and Artas in one procedure gives Toronto Hair Transplantation patients the best FUE technology that money can buy.

Of course, you cannot operate a successful Hair Transplantation and Hair Restoration practice without excellent hair technicians. Several years ago, Dr. Mulholland hired Isaac, HT (Hair Technician), who worked for Dr. Seager for many, many years perfecting the “stick and place” method of dense packing. With the untimely and unfortunate passing of Dr Seager, Dr. Mulholland was able to hire two very experienced hair technicians, Isaac and Lilybeth. Between the these two hair technicians, they have placed well over 1 million grafts.  Isaac, Lilybeth and  Dr. Mulholland will be guiding you through the harvest and implantation phases.

About SpaMedica Anaesthesiology and Anaesthetists

Dr. Mulholland has always crafted the growth and development of his SpaMedica plastic surgery centre around the best possible outcomes by using a combination of surgical skill, technique, talent and artistry with the practice of the best possible safety measures.  Dr. Mulholland, a Toronto Plastic Surgeon, has owned and operated his government-certified, overnight, 24-hour surgery centre for the past 18 years.  During this time, Dr. Mulholland has become one of Canada’s busiest plastic surgeons, performing over 300 cosmetic surgical operations per year for almost 20 years.  Each of these operations is designed to have excellent aesthetic outcomes and have the highest possible safety and efficacy.  Part of the safety for Dr. Mulholland’s Toronto Plastic Surgery Clinic has been the deployment of the best possible anaesthesia technology equipment and the best possible anesthesiologists.

Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica has engaged the services of some of Toronto’s best anaesthesiologists from the Toronto General Hospital, the Toronto East General Hospital and North York General Hospital.  The advantages of having anaesthesiologists who regularly practice in an OHIP hospital environment and private settings is that they have impeccable technological and anaesthetic skills used on very sick patients who are having complex surgeries such as open-heart surgery; heart and lung transplantation; and lung, GI, bowel and urologic or orthopaedic surgery.  By employing anesthesiologists who work in the hospital environment and deploying these highly-skilled anaesthesiologists in the SpaMedica plastic surgery centre, Dr. Mulholland can feel rest assured, as can his patients, that the best possible IV sedation and general anaesthesia is being deployed.

In the extremely unlikely event there is an anaesthetic mishap or reaction to the IV sedation or general anaesthesia, Dr. Mulholland and his team of academic teaching hospital anaesthesiologists have a 911 protocol in place where you will be transported. Care will be given at the finest teaching hospitals in the downtown core.  It is very reassuring for Toronto Plastic Surgery patients to note that in the 18 years that Dr. Mulholland has been performing over 300 plastic surgery procedures per year in the SpaMedica plastic surgery centre, there has not been one case or instance where a 911 protocol has been required for a patient receiving IV sedation or general anaesthesia.  However, it is important that this protocol is in place if it were ever to be required.

Dr. Mulholland places a high premium on both the highest possible aesthetic outcome in combination with the safest possible environment.  As part of your pre-operative screening, if you’re having IV sedation or general anaesthesia, Dr. Mulholland ensures that the blood tests and the cardiogram make you a safe candidate for an elective soft tissue plastic surgery procedure.

Fortunately, some of the biggest advances in aesthetic plastic surgery have been the ability to perform most procedures under local anaesthesia and oral sedation.  This form of anaesthesia makes the risk of reaction to IV sedation and general anaesthesia the lowest possible risk for any elective procedure.

During a consultation with Dr. Mulholland and Lori Williams, his long-term OR coordinator and registered nurse, the type of anaesthesia you would prefer – local anaesthesia with oral sedation or IV sedation or general anaesthesia – will be discussed and if IV sedation or general anaesthesia is deployed, a highly-skilled teaching hospital anaesthesiologist will be managing all your vital signs and ensuring the highest degree of safety possible.
