How to Choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon
Once you have decided to undergo facial cosmetic surgery, your next major decision is choosing the right surgeon. Your safety, appearance, and health depend on the surgeon you select. If you are wondering how to choose a facial plastic surgeon in Halifax, Nova Scotia, first look for board certification and experience. You should also consider a doctor’s results, through before and after images, as well as ask about the location of where your surgery will take place. At The Landings Surgical Centre, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau are plastic surgery board certified. To learn more about our surgeons, schedule your consultation today.
Board-certified Plastic Surgeons
When considering a facial plastic surgeon, whether they are board certified is the first question you should ask. To gain plastic surgery board certification, a doctor must follow strict safety protocols, and must undergo a certain level of advanced training, focusing specifically on cosmetic surgery. Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau are both board certified in plastic surgery. Additionally, they are members of a number of esteemed institutions, including
- Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC)
- Canadian Society of Plastic Surgery
- Doctors Nova Scotia
- Atlantic Plastic Surgery Society
Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau have over 25 years of experience, focusing exclusively on plastic surgery.
Dr. Bendor-Samuel is also a member of the International Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery where he sits on the Board of Directors.
Level of Experience
When it comes to any medical procedure, experience is key. If you are going to undergo a facelift or a related procedure, you should receive treatment from a physician who has performed many similar surgeries.
Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau have over 25 years of experience, focusing exclusively on plastic surgery. They use advanced techniques, such as endoscopic methods, and they stay abreast of the latest advances in the field.
When you are considering a plastic surgeon, it is important to review before and after pictures of past patients. You should examine these photos carefully and ask yourself if you would be satisfied with similar results. You should also consider whether the physician's previous patients have a natural look, and if the results are consistent.
At The Landings Surgical Centre, we are always happy to review before and after pictures with you. Halifax is a small community and for privacy reasons we choose not to put patient photos on our website.
Our Accredited Surgical Center
A surgical center that is properly accredited indicates a strict adherence to safety standards. Our centre has a full operating theater, two rooms for minor procedures, and a two-bed post-treatment recovery area. The centre was the first to be accredited by the Canadian Association of Ambulatory Care (CAAC) in Atlantic Canada.
Though complications following plastic surgery are rare, you should choose a doctor who is affiliated with a local hospital. Additionally, more extensive procedures, such as a full facelift, will take place at the hospital. Dr. Bendor-Samuel is affiliated with the New Halifax Infirmary and Dr. Boileau with the Bridgewater Hospital, both located in Nova Scotia.
