5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Amazing Surgical Artistry

I am in my fifties and have wanted a breast reduction since I was thirty because of chronic neck, shoulder and back pain. It took a long time to get the courage but after years of physio, massage and chiropractor appointments I began to search for a surgeon. I called a few places in Calgary but was discouraged with the wait times as well as the reluctance to meet with me because I was older...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation


My experience with Dr MacLennan was amazing. She was nice, professional, and a complete artist. I had my breasts done and she made me feel 100% comfortable. I was on the fence on whether I wanted to go over or under the muscle and after speaking with her I knew I had made the right choice. I decided to go over he muscle and went from a 32A to a 32D. I couldn't be happier, they look and feel...

So happy with my reults

I had my breast reduction surgery with Dr. MacLennan 6 months ago and couldn't be happier! I put a lot of thought into my decision and am so glad I went through with it. Dr. MacLennan and all the staff at Banff Plastic Surgery were amazing! They all helped answer any of my questions and were excellent at explaining the procedure and what to expect. I found the recovery process to be not bad at...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Very Good Experience, Knowledgeable, Friendly, Professional Caring Staff

I apologize in advance for this lengthy review...however, sometimes more is better, especially when making such a life changing decision. I have always been ashamed of my "abdominal sagging" after having two very large babies, making me feel both: unattractive to my husband and self conscious around other women in dressing rooms. After losing 30 lb this year, I also lost 85% of my breast...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Best decision I ever made!

Dr MacLennan did my surgery about a year ago and I could not be happier with the results. I would recommend Dr MacLennan to anyone thinking of having a breast reduction in a heart beat. Since I have had the surgery my back hasn't been bothering me as much, my posture has improved but most of all the biggest improvement was in my self confidence. I cannot thank enough Dr MacLennan for her...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Professional, personable and amazing surgeon!

My saline breast implants were 23 years old, though they didn't fail, I had developed advanced capsular contracture resulting in hardening, painful and distorted breasts. They were also quite large and I hoped for a reduction. In pursuit of breast revision surgery, (replacing saline with silicone) I chose Banff Plastic Surgery and consulted with Dr. Susan MacLennan. From the moment I met Dr....

Say Goodbye to Fat Without Surgery

Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells...

Labiaplasty 101

Labiaplasty is fast becoming a popular procedure. You may have heard this referred to as “vaginal rejuvenation”, but we’re sticklers for proper terminology, so when talking about the labia, we’ll say “labia”, rather than “vagina.” With a recent increase in hair removal and current popularity of snug fitting yoga pants and “athleisure” clothing, more women are seeking a solution for the discomfort they’re experiencing due to labia that are too long or too prominent. Are you uncomfortable...
