5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty, Cast is off & SO HAPPY! Why didn't I do this sooner? Totally 100% WORTH IT! - Toronto, ON

Hello All! I joined this site on a few days ago, and today was my first day post op (day 1 of my recovery). I've wanted my nose done since the age of 12, and finally all the factors (being 100% sure, timing, money) came together. The surgery wasn't bad, and the post pain is a breeze, however the swelling has been quite a challenging! Last night (the day of my surgery) I started to...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Long Term Patient of Dr David Ellis - Toronto, ON

I have been a patient of Dr Ellis for 30 years for a variety of non-surgical facial improvements. Any patient can feel confident with Dr Ellis as he is very experienced and knowledgeable. I believe he has always been on the front edge of new technologies that will benefit his patients. Friends and acquaintances always tell me I look much younger than my age, so I know his efforts have been...

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

30y.o F Size Small Implantech Extended Anatomical Chin Implant, and Under Chin Lipo - Toronto, ON

I would definitely recommend Dr. Ellis. He is a facial plastic surgeon with decades of experience. I consulted with three different facial plastic surgeons before deciding. I found that he took the most time with me to answer all of my questions (and I had a lot). There was no pressure at all, and he seems like a genuine, caring doctor. I am very happy with my procedure and the whole experience. Barb, his office manager was wonderful to deal with as well.

40 Athlete and Still Have Double Chin - Toronto, ON

My consultation with Dr. Ellis was very informative. His staff was very nice and was very accommodating. I didn't hesitate booking my treatment with Dr. Ellis because he was going to do the treatment himself.

4 out of 5 stars Bio-Alcamid

Bio-alcamid Can Be Removed and Infection Treated!!!

This doctor is an accredited plastic surgeon and has the most experience with extraction of Bio-alcamid in Canada. He is very knowledgeable with treating any related infection. His technique is very aggressive and he uses a 14 guage syringe then 2 physicians squeeze out the filler from all angles. He is readily available for follow-up and tries to keep pain minimal.

Stop Asking Me if I'm OK! - Toronto, ON

I'll get back to you after the procedure.

1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

33 Years Old - North York, ON

I think Dr Ellis is an unethical and dishonest person. He only goes after the money and if you haven't done very thorough research, you may end up with something you don't want.

1 out of 5 stars Botox

Poor Knowledge or willingness to learn - Toronto, ON

I went to Dr. Ellis for Botox. The entire procedure took about 5-7 minutes. It was only when I went to pay that I found out he had injected 100 units. I’ve had Botox treatments several times before but only 50 units, which was more than adequate. About 8 or 9 days later I began experiencing difficulty with my vision. At the beginning it was blurry and by into the 10th day I was seeing d...

1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

8 years post-op Rhinoplasty and chin implant- very unhappy

I had rhinoplasty and a chin implant placed over 8 years ago. Following surgery I was unhappy with the appearance of my nose, and within a year of surgery it was determined by an ENT surgeon that I had a hole in my nasal septum (which was clearly created during surgery since I had no history of trauma or drug use that would cause me to develop the hole). The hole has caused me to have...
