27 Years Old, 1 Kid, Finally Doing It! - Halifax, NS

So I've been saving up my change for about 5 years now and after cancelling once years ago due to chickening out, I finally went through with my consultation for breast implants. It was completely laid back and relaxed. The doctor was very nice, he didn't rush, he was very professional and just an inviting guy. My goal was to become fuller overall but not too big- just a natural look that...

Surgery Day - Halifax, NS

I checked in at 10:00 for pre-op where my medications were reviewed, I had blood work, an ECG done, met with my surgeon who did my markings, and a nurse came to have me put on compression stockings and take me to the OR. During the time the surgeon met with me I asked various questions which I had written down prior to seeing him. I knew I would not see him after the surgery. He was in a rush...

1 Year Post Op first figure comp

My Family Doctor had mentioned his clinic. There are 2 at his clinic they are both great...I picked him because he was very honest/realistic on what I should expect. He answered all of my questions. I thought he had a fantastic bedside manner and his staff were all fabulous as well. The nurse that sees you for your post op app, Joanne is super, very encouraging and positive..Every appointment I have gone to I never waited longer than 5-10 min to get in.

Third Times the Charm...I Hope! - Nova Scotia, NS

I am very pleased with my outcome so far, Dr bendor-Samuel is very kind & friendly, easy to talk to & open to questions. I did find that you don't get to see a lot of him, especially after the surgery. I've been in twice since my surgery & only get to see the RN. And if I call its always the RN that calls back. After care is not very detailed & I am left with a lot of questions, which they will gladly answer if you call but it would have been nice to have things already when I got home. Bottom line is though, he is a great surgeon, has now done BR on myself & 2 friends who are both very happy, so overall I'm happy I chose him.

Liposuction After Kids, Hope It Helps Me Regain my Confidence! - Halifax, NS

He is an excellent doctor, I give him 5 stars even though wait times weren't perfect, however, that is not his fault directly, he is a very busy man. The clinic I went to is one of the only clinics in Nova Scotia so he chose me I guess, however, he is rated the top plastic surgeon in Canada in Flare magazine, and has a lot of great experience. I would recommend him to anyone. Very blunt and to the point, and is truthful, I like that even though sometimes people may think its harsh. Great doctor, great clinic, and great staff :)

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction Flanks and Breast - Nova Scotia, NS

Dr Bendor-Samuel and his staff all made me feel like what they were doing was routine and uncomplicated, which made me feel less nervous. Although I had done a lot of research, he answered all of my unanswered questions satisfactorily. During the consultation he seemed to want to get it over with, but I understand he had a patient in the OR waiting for anesthesia to kick in, so that makes sense. If I had needed him to help convince me more, or explain more to me, I am sure he would have done that un-begrudgingly, however I didn't need very much of either. During surgery, he worked quickly and explained what he was doing as it progressed, since I couldn't see what he was doing. Afterward, he had an on-to-the-next sort of attitude, which was in itself reassuring. The nurses were both really nice, and were quick to respond to any discomfort. Aftercare and follow-up: The compression garment they gave me was completely different than the one they showed me during the consultation, and it ended up buckling at the end of the first week. Basically unwearable, but not a huge deal I guess. I had been a bit disconcerted after the first operation, but after getting this revision done I am thoroughly impressed with everyone at his clinic. It was no hassle at all, and everyone was really nice throughout. I think it was mostly my hesitation about doing this, and my existential doubts that prevented me from seeing this as positively as I should have after the first operation. He and his practice get a full five stars overall from me!

57 YO finally on the flat side - Halifax, ON

So far I am delighted with everything about the PS and his office staff. I am feeling confident and well prepared for the surgery. Dr Bendor- Samuel is very personable and will respond to any questions. He saw me right before the surgery, to mark me and reassure me that everything was in place for a good outcome. He has done a perfect job for me from what I can tell. The surgery went extremely well and at five days PO everyone, especially me, is delighted with the outcome.
