5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

35 Years Old, After 2 Children - Calgary, AB

Dr Whidden and his staff took their time with me answering all my questions during the my first consult. I never felt rushed. I would have like to have a bit more time with the doctor after the surgery and my first follow up appointment. Dr Whidden is very approachable and calm. I would recommend him to anyone.

My Breasts Are Perfect at Last - Calgary, AB

Dr. Whidden was professional, thorough and very understanding. Because of my previous experience I was anxious and asked A LOT of questions. He answered all of them and never made me feel like I was wasting his time. He took so many measurements and explained to me how he came up with the right size and width for me... he let me in on his thought process which was so reassuring. He is the best!

Dr. Whidden is very knowledgeable and will tell it like it is. He recommended doing a full tummy tuck- and also repaired my muscles (from having kids). I was very impressed with him.

Loving my new boobs!

Dr. Whidden has been great from the beginning. He has incredible bedside manner and is so patient with answering any questions I have. He made me feel at ease from beginning and I felt comfortable knowing he was performing my surgery. He was also gentle because I am not even sore and there is no bruising at all.
