Had a great experience with The Landings Surgical Center. Dr Boileau was very friendly and thorough during my consult which helped put my mind at ease! When it came time for my surgery all the staff were wonderful, making me feel at ease and comfortable through the whole process! Dr. Boileau, Dr. Lancelot and my (absolutely amazing) nurse Christina were all great!

Preview Your Results  with Augmented Reality

Are you interested in a procedure but wish you could see yourself post-op? We use Crisalix 3D imaging to give patients a preview of their results during their initial consultation. This advanced technology gives patients the opportunity to virtually audition different procedures and corresponding options before committing. Patients can also bring the results home to share with their loved ones to aid in making their decision.

A Breast Lift Can Restore Your Figure

Age, pregnancy, and other factors can cause breasts to sag and lose their shape. Our practice offers several breast lift techniques to help you look younger and feel more confident. The type of breast lift we recommend is carefully selected based on your needs and cosmetic goals. We may also use fat transfer to both eliminate unwanted fat from one area of the body and add subtle volume to the bust line. Patients looking for a dramatic transformation can combine this treatment with breast augmentation for stunning results.

Worried about the Cost of Treatment? We Offer Financing

Is the price of treatment holding you back from undergoing the procedure you want? We offer the convenient financing options Credit Medical and MediCredit to help make the procedure you desire more affordable. During your visit to our office, our team can explain this option in greater detail so you can make the best decision for yourself. To get started, fill out our online form and we’ll be in touch to schedule your consultation. You can also call our practice at:

We are the only practice in Halifax to be awarded “Double Black Diamond” status by Allergan, the manufacturer of BOTOX. This distinguishes us as being among the top 1 percent of injectors across Canada, and is a testament to our experience and commitment to safety.

I had a previous procedure with Dr. Bender-Samuel and was more than pleased so when I decided to enhance my lips I went to see Joanne who was amazing!!! She was honest in her assessment, answered all my questions, made me feel completely at ease and the procedure was quick, painless and I left very satisfied with the results. I would highly recomend the Landing Surgical Centre to anyone. Also praise for the front desk staff who were also very knowledgeable and friendly and provided me with great information before my visit. I couldn't be happier.

As a long time patient of Dr. Bender Samuel and his nurse Joanne I can confidently say every visit has been an exceptional experience. I am a medical professional and have witnessed firsthand their professionalism and their ability to offer the most premium products available on the market and the most up to date techniques regarding facial injections. They have participated in global training offering services and education not available in other clinics in Atlantic Canada. I have referred friends, family and also medical professionals that are business clients of mine and would not hesitate to continue to do so.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a very popular plastic surgery choice for patients who are unhappy with the shape, size, or balance of their bust line. We offer both saline and silicone breast implants at our practice. To help you decide which implant type, size, and shape is right for you, we invite you to browse through photos and preview your results during your in-office consultation.

If you are frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be an excellent option for you. Our board-certified plastic surgeons perform liposuction to remove fat from your arms, back, abdomen, or buttocks, giving you the contours and curves you desire.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery can eliminate stubborn fat, remove excess skin, and tighten the tissue across the abdominal area. This is an excellent option for patients who want a flatter stomach or have recently lost significant weight. It can be combined with other treatments in a mommy makeover for those who wish to reverse the effects of pregnancy and childbirth.

Dr Bendor Samuel is an amazing surgeon, passionate about what he does and his work reflects that. I cannot tell you how happy I am with the results, I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon, he somehow knew exactly the look I was going for. So happy with the results.. even if I was in another province I would travel for this surgeon. Also, the staff at this place are some of the sweetest people I've met, just an overall positive environment and experience.

I want to extend a Thank you to Dr. Samuel Bender! I just recently got my second procedure done. He's an amazing plastic surgeon. I travelled from Alberta to Halifax for my procedure. He was totally worth the trip. The quality and professionalism was totally worth every mile I travelled to get to him. I plan on coming back (year).

COVID - 19 Update

As everyone is aware , the world is in an unprecedented time as a result of Covid-19. This virus has the ability to cause great harm to a small portion of our population but requires diligence from everyone in order to reduce the potential for un-necessary deaths. Due to the current level of concern with respect to the global pandemic we are rescheduling the following types of visit as follows:

All Surgeries

All NEW patient visits

All Filler and Botox Visits

All Aesthetician treatments

We will be rescheduling everything as soon as we have the ability to do so based on best practice and current knowledge of safety.

Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau will continue to see early follow up post-operative patients although the dates and times will be a little more restricted and spread out in order to limit  patient contact in our waiting room and allow physical distancing. We ask that you stay home and re-schedule if; you have travelled out of the country in the past 14 days, if you have a cough, fever or cold/flu symptoms. 

We understand that this is a very stressful time for everyone and that many people have made significant commitments and changed life plans to have appointments and treatments scheduled. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause.

We greatly appreciate your support and trust in the doctors and staff at the Landings Surgical Centre. We are optimistic that this will be short lived but not able to predict the timing to a more normal lifestyle.

We kindly ask that you accept that we will do our best to respond to you in a timely fashion. Please understand that we are working through some difficult staffing issues that may require you to leave a voice message should you try to call. 

We will continue to provide retail sales of all Aesthetic products which can be either mailed or picked up (again with limited hours). Should you wish to support local during these difficult times please reach out to us and we will keep you replenished with the products that you have been accustomed to.

We are here for you now and in the future.
