“During his training, Dr. Cyr realized his orthopaedic background had equipped him with a rare knowledge of the musculoskeletal system that could further enhance the advancements being made in liposculpture and body contouring. His profound knowledge and understanding of the ideal anatomy enhanced by his lifelong passion for fitness and bodybuilding enabled him to identify anatomic flaws in high-definition liposculpture which result in a manufactured or artificial appearance. His unique approach called “OrthoSculpt” increases the potential to create the more natural look of a true fitness athlete or bodybuilder. Ideal cosmetic surgery makes it difficult to distinguish a surgically-crafted body from one built in the gym”, states the official website of CYRx MD Cosmetic Surgery.
