Dr. Edward Chamata Is Spearheading the Natural-Looking Plastic Procedure Movement

Plastic surgery has only gotten more and more accessible in recent years, and the best thing about it is that it can be used to improve or change people’s appearance. In addition, it is also an effective way of correcting physical defects. Needless to say, this procedure has helped several individuals regain their confidence and improve their outlook in life.

However, all surgery poses varying levels of risk, including plastic surgery. Aside from this, there is always a growing concern about how naturally the results will look. The chances of plastic surgery being botched exponentially increase depending on how extreme the surgery is. That’s why Dr. Edward Chamata has made it his mission to perfect the “natural” plastic surgery result.

Dr. Edward Chamata is a first-generation Lebanese immigrant who has established a distinguished career as a surgeon specializing in body sculpting. Clients flock from all over the world for his amazing results performing BBLs, tummy tucks, and liposuction procedures. His jaw-dropping procedures include high-definition liposuction, in which he contours the body to create a refined and natural look and improves muscle definition using complex sculpting techniques.

He is world-renowned for what is now known as the Chamata Chiseled Tummy Tuck, which is a method he developed to improve conventional tummy tuck techniques. For instance, Dr. Chamata’s surgery incorporates complex and perfectly positioned incisions that expertly disguise the scars and produce a sculpted abdomen that creates natural curves. In contrast, conventional tummy tucks leave the abdomen region lacking a natural and toned appearance and cause apparent scarring around the belly button.

A new era of plastic surgery has begun as a result of Dr. Chamata’s passion for his field and prolific accomplishments. As a result, more natural-looking results are becoming more popular than the overdone, exaggerated look, which is apparent in celebrity style too.

Dr. Chamata’s results are widely raved about throughout the world, and it’s no surprise that he has over 50,000 followers on social media. Online, he posts before and after transformations of his patients to teach his followers the value of opting for procedures that offer more natural-looking results and harmonize with the whole body and face.

Dr. Chamata got his start in surgery after arranging and directing many medical excursions to third-world nations in Latin America while he was in medical school. His involvement in surgical missions with plastic surgery groups later developed into providing free reconstructive plastic surgery on children in need, including cleft lip and cleft palate operations. These experiences has become a vital point in his life that developed his passion for helping people get the plastic results they want.

What motivates him to keep going is always the pursuit of excellence and breaking through new innovations in plastic surgery. “My daily motivational force is to always push the boundaries of what can be achieved with plastic surgery and to always strive to improve on older techniques in order to propel the field of plastic surgery to new heights and provide every patient with the results they deserve!” he said.

Canada – Prince Edward Island dairy company fined $50,000 for offence under the Fisheries Act

On March 23, 2022, Nobra Holsteins Inc. was sentenced and ordered to pay a $50,000 fine after pleading guilty to one count of contravening subsection 36(3) of the Fisheries Act related to a liquid manure spill that occurred on or about June 3, 2020.

March 31, 2022 – Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Strong and effective enforcement of Canada’s environmental and wildlife protection laws is one of the concrete ways we are delivering on our commitment to provide clean air, clean water, and the conservation of wildlife species and their habitat.

On March 23, 2022, Nobra Holsteins Inc. was sentenced and ordered to pay a $50,000 fine after pleading guilty to one count of contravening subsection 36(3) of the Fisheries Act related to a liquid manure spill that occurred on or about June 3, 2020. The fine will be directed to the Government of Canada’s Environmental Damages Fund. In addition to the fine, the company has been ordered to create a Manure Spill Prevention and Response Plan that will be readily available to all company employees and farm workers.

On June 3 and 4, 2020, an Environment and Climate Change Canada environmental enforcement officer and conservation officers from the Province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) responded to a report of a liquid manure spill in Irishtown, PEI. Officers collected water samples and dead Brook Trout from the affected watershed where the liquid manure was deposited. The water samples were analyzed and the elevated ammonia concentrations, indicating high pH levels, were determined to be acutely lethal and deleterious to fish as defined under the Fisheries Act. The dead fish smelled strongly of manure and a necropsy revealed that the fish had been healthy until the incident.

A joint investigation by Environment and Climate Change Canada officers and PEI conservation officers determined that the spill had resulted from a rupture of a recently installed transfer hose intended to transfer liquid manure over a long distance. Nobra Holsteins Inc. did not exercise due diligence and failed to take all reasonable steps to avoid this offence. It was discovered that the system was not properly installed prior to its use, that it was not properly inspected prior to pumping liquid manure, and that the transfer hose was installed in a high-risk area on Prince Edward Island Government property without proper approval.

The spill killed 530 Brook Trout in a 2,459-metre section of the tributary, forced the closure of shellfish harvesting areas from June until the end of September 2020, and halted recreational activities in the area until December 2021. Restocking the affected waterway cost nearly $6,000.

As a result of this conviction, the company’s name will be added to the Environmental Offenders Registry. The Registry contains information on convictions of corporations registered for offences committed under certain federal environmental laws.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has created a free subscription service to help Canadians stay current with what the Government of Canada is doing to protect our natural environment.

Canada – Minister Bibeau concludes visit to Prince Edward Island following announcement of the resumption of Prince Edward Island potato exports to the United States

The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, concluded a two-day visit to Prince Edward Island on Sunday.

March 28, 2022 – Ottawa, Ontario – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, concluded a two-day visit to Prince Edward Island on Sunday. The trip included stops in Charlottetown, Victoria, Wellington, and O’Leary to meet with farmers across the Island, and discuss the upcoming growing season and reopening of the table stock potatoes market to the United States. The visit comes at a critical time for the industry, since resuming exports of Prince Edward Island table stock potatoes into the continental United States will provide the predictability and assurance farmers need for the next potato growing season.

Recognizing the importance of strong collaboration between governments at all levels, Minister Bibeau met with Prince Edward Island Minister of Agriculture Bloyce Thompson in Charlottetown, where both discussed how to best support the industry moving forward. In addition, they also took the opportunity to discuss the Next Agricultural Policy Framework, which will play an important role in Canada’s commitment to tackling climate change and creating a sustainable future in Canadian agriculture. 

Minister Bibeau also met with Ray and Alvin Keenan of Rollo Bay Holdings, a family run potato growing and packaging operation located in Souris, and a major player in retail and food service for over 70 years.

After meeting with Sean Casey, Member of Parliament for Charlottetown, to discuss priorities for the capital, Minister Bibeau was joined by Heath MacDonald, Member of Parliament for Malpeque, to meet with John Visser, Chairman of the PEI Potato Board, and a group of growers. During tours of Mr. Visser’s farm and the Thompson Potato Company in Victoria, potato growers shared with Minister Bibeau how the closure of the United States market has impacted their operations and their priorities going forward.

The Minister then travelled to Wellington and O’Leary, accompanied by Bobby Morrissey, Member of Parliament for Egmont, where she toured Urbainville Farms and J&J Farms, to learn about their unique approaches to potato farming and their visions for the future.

Minister Bibeau concluded her trip back in Charlottetown where she had a productive meeting with the PEI Potato Board about how to best position the Island’s potato industry for success in the short and long term. 

Prince Edward Island has a long history of producing the highest quality potatoes for Canadians and international consumers. The Government of Canada will continue to stand up for Prince Edward Island potato farmers who are integral to their communities and our economy.

“The meetings with Prince Edward Island potato growers this past weekend provided an opportunity for open discussions that were appreciated by both sides. I am confident that by continuing to work together constructively with the Potato Board and the province, we will ensure the industry adapts and rebounds”

– The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

The United States is a major destination for Prince Edward Island potatoes, with approximately $103.4 million of total Prince Edward Island table stock and processing potato exports in 2020.

On March 24, 2022, the Government of Canada announced that the United States will soon resume imports of Prince Edward Island table stock potatoes into the continental United States with conditions.

This decision follows several months of technical discussions between the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the United States Department of Agriculture – Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, through which the Agency shared scientific information and reports to support Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’ risk assessment exercise to enable the resumption of trade. This included scientific data from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s investigation of the recent potato wart detections, clear risk mitigation measures, the results from our national survey for potato wart, and information related to the implementation of Potato Wart Domestic Long Term Management plan.

On February 8, 2022, the United States Department of Agriculture announced the resumption of trade in table stock potatoes from Prince Edward Island to Puerto Rico. This was an important step in restoring United States market access for Prince Edward Island, as exports of Prince Edward Island table stock potatoes to Puerto Rico were valued at $12 million in 2020.
