Dr. Nancy Van Laeken's Ratings
I had breast reduction surgery just under 3 months ago with Dr Van Laeken and am very pleased with the results. She is incredibly efficient and doesn't seek to waste yours, or her, time! I'd held off from the surgery for a long time due to all the stories of significant pain, long recovery and bad scarring. I was back exercising after a week, and the scars are extremely neat and minimal and, at 2 months post-surgery, were hardly visible in spots. My advice for having this surgery, whether with Dr Van Laeken or another surgeon, is to be realistic and not act like a princess!
I was very reluctant in booking a consultation with Dr. Van Laeken due to some of the reviews. Boy, am I glad that I went ahead anyways. During my consultation, she answered all my questions without me even having to ask them. She knew exactly the 'look' I wanted to achieve and delivered those results. I cannot rave enough on just how happy I am with the outcome of my surgeries. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Van Laeken is one of the top plastic surgeon., committed, compassionate and perfectionist. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year. I had a double mastectomy and Dr. Van Laeken was kind enough to open a time slot to operate with my breast surgeon for my immediate reconstruction in less then 2 weeks. The out come of my reconstruction is beautiful. She was understanding this was an overwhelming time for me dealing with Breast Cancer and wanted me to feel as beautiful when I woke up from my double mastectomy. She was wonderful and supportive during my chemo and radiation treatments to make sure I didn't have any problem with my implants. I was very blessed to have her as my plastic surgeon. She takes time out for her hectic schedule to volunteer her time to operate in 3rd world countries on disfigured women's at no charge. I would highly recommend her.
Felt very comfortable in her office and with her staff. She provided great information and I am so glad I decided to have Surgery with her. She came highly recommended from a close friend of mine and I've had a great results!
I went to Nancy after losing a bunch of weight . My breasts were very "loose" and I wanted them to be higher, smaller and younger looking. ( I have huge breasts ). I found the work to be good...not amazing but I am happy I suppose, but her bed side manor is HORRIBLE. When I went to have my stitches out , I was scared as I am not a good healer, and she made my husband hold my hands behind my back so I could not flinch. I understand that me moving was hard for her, but she was in such a rush to take them out and gave me no time to breathe in between some stitches for even a second. I was so upset and scared that I actually fainted, and the very nice nurse came and helped me and Nancy just ...left.....Her work I would say is a 8/10 and her bed side manor, a 0. Always rushing you out and then after I paid $16,000 for my surgery, I was given tape and some lotion to put on under my bra and was asked to pay $75 for it at the front desk. You can buy these things at shoppers for $10.
I have had two breast surgeries with Dr. Van Laeken. The breast augmentation went well but I wasn't fully satisfied with the results because of the way it stretched out my breasts. I went back to have it fixed and it was great for about 6 months and then got worse than it was before! I went back and told I wasn't happy and she said she wanted me to be happy so offered to do it again for the same price as I had already paid. $20k later I felt like this is just what I am stuck with so I left it at that. I will be doing it again soon but will use another doctor. But, she is a very kind woman and made me feel very comfortable. Maybe my expectations are too high. I know she is very well known for her fantastic work.
Dr Van Laeken is fantastic. She is one of the best surgeons in Canada. Reading responses such as she is only after the money is so far from the truth. The majority of her work is done in reconstructive surgery for breast cancer. She also risks her life each year and goes to 3rd world countries to operate on disfigured women (no charge). She is professional and wonderfully competent.
My experience has been VERY disappointing and frustrating. She did a terrible job to me and clearly does not know what she is doing. My breasts are still misshapen and are now 2 different sizes in different places. Seven years later, this result still bothers me. Her avoidance of answering questions is her way of not telling the truth. She is very cold and short and spent less than five minutes talking to me and did not listen to any of my concerns. Please be very careful if you're planning to choose her. Can't seem to put DR. in front of her name. Furthermore, be careful because she bookmark most of her unsuccessful patients. It is very obvious she only cares about the money that comes from her boob jobs and tummy tucks and not those with true medical ailments. . All she can see is $$$$ signs. She could care less about you if you aren't a paying customer. I wouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy.
Please, please, refrain from using Nancy VanLaeken. Can't seem to put DR. in front of her name. She did a terrible job. Be careful who you choose. Her avoidance of answering questions is her way of not telling the truth. I had to have both my procedures done over by her, and was still not happy. I even had to pay the second time!!! She clearly does not know what she is doing. I think she is using her clients as practice, but she just doesn't get it. All she can see is $$$$ signs. I had another doctor fix her mess, but once the damage is done it is really hard to correct. I hope you check out more doctors.
