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.

What Is Included in a Mommy Makeover Package?

By The Landings Surgical Centre on January 25, 2020

A mother playing with her daughter in a poolPregnancy and childbirth put a woman’s body through many changes, which is why plastic surgeons developed the mommy makeover. A mommy makeover combines multiple breast enhancement and body contouring procedures to remove loose skin and tighten the figure, helping you appear slimmer and trimmer in the process.

Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau has helped numerous mothers in the Halifax, NS and Prince Edward Island area achieve a better body contour thanks to the mommy makeover. The team here at The Landings Surgical Centre would like to list some of the most common procedures performed during a mommy makeover.

Treatments for the Abdominal Area

A woman’s stomach gets stretched out a great deal during pregnancy, which can lead to a drooping belly and stretch marks around the stomach. That’s why every mommy makeover typically involves a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). The surgery reduces the loose skin around the lower abdomen and tightens the overall appearance of the abdomen.

Breast Enhancement Procedures

Changes in breast size during pregnancy, milk production, and nursing can cause breasts to sag once breastfeeding is done. It’s not uncommon for women to undergo breast lift surgery or a combined breast lift with implants to help reduce breast sagging. The ideal breast enhancement surgery depends on your needs.

Toning and Firming the Buttocks

The buttocks are a common problem area when people gain weight and lose weight. A butt lift may be just what’s needed to enhance the shapeliness of a mother’s backside. The procedure will tighten up and firm up a rear end that may be flattened by weight gain and weight loss.

Body Contouring for the Extremities

The tummy and trunk aren’t the only parts of the body affected by weight gain and weight loss. The mommy makeover also targets the upper arms and thighs, which are both commonly impacted by excessive weight gain and weight loss. The arm lift (brachioplasty) is great for tightening and toning the shoulders and triceps. The thigh lift (thighplasty) is key for improving the appearance of the thighs and the hip area.

Facial Rejuvenation After Having a Baby

The face can undergo some unexpected changes from pregnancy and childbirth, which is why some facial rejuvenation is common in mommy makeovers. Generally, these procedures involve revisions to the lower portion of the face, such as the jawline and the neckline. The lower face lift helps reduce sagging around the chin and jowls, while the neck lift is ideal for removing loose skin of the neck.

Creating a Mommy Makeover Just for You

With all of these surgeries and others, it’s possible for plastic surgeons to meet a patient’s exact needs during a mommy makeover. During a consultation at our practice, we can discuss what procedures may be most ideal for your mommy makeover.
