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.

Shape and Firm Up Your Bust with Breast Reduction or Breast Lift Surgery

There are a variety of surgical procedures available to help women who are unhappy with the size and/or shape of their breasts. Women with uncomfortably large breasts can turn to breast reduction, while breast lift surgery can treat sagging, droopy breasts. Serving Halifax, Nova Scotia, as well as Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, and the surrounding areas, The Landings Surgical Centre is one of the area's premier cosmetic practices. With state-of-the-art facilities and a caring, highly trained staff, we can help you achieve the bustline you desire.

Breast Lift

Many women find that the contour of their breasts changes as a natural part of the aging process. Childbirth, weight fluctuations, and other factors can cause breasts that were once firm and perky to hang lower on the chest. Breast lift surgery allows women to restore a youthful contour to the chest. Many patients choose to combine breast lift with breast augmentation in order to restore lost volume or simply to enhance the bustline. Breast lift can also be incorporated into a body contouring procedure to enhance results.

The Breast Lift Procedure

Illustration of breast lift incisions and resultsThe traditional breast lift technique involves making an anchor-shaped incision around the areola, down to the bottom of the breast, and along the crease at the base of the breast. Through this incision, the surgeon will remove excess skin and fat and then relocate the nipple, closing the incisions. Skin that was above the nipple prior to surgery is pulled down to give the breast a firmer shape. In some cases, liposuction may be used to contour the areas around the breasts.

After Breast Lift Surgery

After a breast lift, most patients are able to return to work within two weeks, and can partake in other activities within four weeks. It is important to wear a support bra for about six weeks after surgery until swelling goes down. Some breast lift patients experience mild discomfort or lose nipple sensation for up to eight weeks after surgery; in rare cases, the loss of feeling in the nipples is permanent. Because childbirth and breastfeeding can dramatically affect the size and shape of the breasts, most patients should wait until after having children to undergo a breast lift.

Breast Reduction

Significantly large breasts can be a source of discomfort and insecurity for some women. Neck and back pain and skin irritation are common among women with overly large breasts. By surgically reducing the size of the breasts, Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileaucan address these symptoms and make the chest more proportional to the rest of the body. Male breast reduction is also available at The Landings Surgical Centre in Halifax for men who are affected by gynecomastia.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

The techniques required for breast reduction vary from patient to patient. In some cases, liposuction alone can accomplish the desired result, while in others only incisions around the nipple and along the breast crease are required. The most common approach to breast reduction is an anchor-shaped incision around the areola, down the bottom of the breast, and along the breast crease. Excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed before the nipple is relocated and the incisions are closed. In unusual cases, the nipple may be detached and repositioned, but most often it is left connected to the breast throughout the procedure.

After Breast Reduction Surgery

After breast reduction surgery, patients should expect to rest and recover at home for the first week. The chest will be bruised and swollen for a few weeks. Some level of discomfort is common during recovery, but this can be controlled with medication. It is also important to avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks after the procedure. Our surgeons give our breast reduction patients specific recovery instructions to speed the healing process for optimal surgical results.
