Couldn't Be Happier! From a 32aa to a Beautiful Perky 32d. Vancouver, BC

Dr. Gelfant is at the top of his field. He is professional and personable and conducts his practice with the highest level of skill and knowledge. In all of my interactions with him I felt safe and taken care of. He is sincere and kind and I always have felt like a valued patient, from the first consultation to my last check up. My procedure, a breast augmentation with an armpit incision,or the endoscopic approach is complicated and difficult and nobody performs it better than Dr. Gelfant. My recovery was painless - I could lift my hands over my head hours after my operation. He is honestly SO great and lovely - I actually look forward to seeing him again at my follow up appointments!

50 Years Old - Vancouver, BC

Dr. Gelfant was terrific! Kind, understanding, compassionate and so patient. He made me very comfortable and explained the entire procedure to me step by step. The surgery went really well, and the pain is completely manageable. I'm so happy with the results even it's only been 13 days post op, and can't wait to see the improved results in a few more months. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gelfant to anyone considering a breast lift.

32YearsOld BreastAugmentation ThroughArmPit After 12Years of HavingThemDoneBefore by Dr.Gelfant and NotOne Problem! Vancouver,BC

Dr. Gelfant is educated, experienced, kind, and caring. 12 years ago you made me feel so comfortable and safe when I first chose to have a Breast Augmentation done and you performed the most amazing procedure through my arm pit where there was the smallest scar hidden in the natural creases of my arm pit. My healing time was fast and I have had nothing but complements. Now 12 years later I came straight back to you! And not because of any issues just to go up a size for personal preference ! ;) Once again THANK YOU for your experience, your kindness and care as well as making me feel absolutely beautiful! You and your staff are the BEST ;)) Katie

Breast Augmentation Revision Downsized from 32 D to 32 B/C - Vancouver, BC

Dr. Gelfant did an amazing job. They look very natural and perfectly shaped. Love them now and feel they fit better with my small frame. The recovery was not too long with little bruising. Scars are not that noticeable as he went through the armpit both times. I would highly recommend him. Staff was great as well!

thrilled with the great results! - Vancouver, BC

I had a breast lift done less than 2 weeks ago and I'm so pleased with the surgery by Dr. Gelfant (he truly is great at what he does). I feel younger, no pain from the surgery, the scars you can hardly see ( a real surprize) and now my breasts look like a much younger woman which is wonderful since I'm in my 50's. No more looking at SAGGY DEFLATED breasts due to age and breastfeeding!!!...

28 Yr Old Breast Augmentation - Vancouver, BC

I have contemplated having a breast augmentation for as long as long as I can remember. I finally worked up the courage to go in for a consultation with Dr. Gelfant after learning 3 of my friends (all with amazing breasts that I had no idea were fake) had gone to him. As soon as I set foot in his office I felt comfortable, all of his staff are amazing. Dr. Gelfant thoroughly explained the...
