08/07/14 5 5 5 5 Awesome doctor is NOT enough to describe Dr. Backstein! I searched high and low for literally 2 years trying to find not only a doctor that I could trust but one that wouldn't milk me for every penny I could possibly come up with for plastic surgeries. I found Dr. Robert Backstein through this site and saw him in consultation early Feb 2014. I decided to go with hime due to his kind and calm personality and because he offered me what I wanted and a price that made sense to me (it isn't cheap don't get me wrong but like I said he doesn't try to squeeze you purse dry). I had implants, arm lift and tummy tuck and each procedure has gone just amazingly well. My recover was way easier than I thought it was going to be for 3 procedures and my scars are really basically optimal. If you have mad the decision to go ahead do yourself a huge favor and see Dr. Backstein before you have your surgery!!

16/06/14 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Backstein on recommendation of a colleague. I was nervous and I immediately relaxed when I went there, his secretary was very welcoming and put me at ease. I went to Dr. Backstein with a concern that I was endlessly commented on tired I looked, to the point of suggesting I may have a health condition. Dr. Backstein answered all my questions and again put me at ease. He performed a lower and upper Blepharoplasty (eyelid). My recovery was very short and his work went beyond my expectations. In the six months since I have had the procedure I have not had one comment on how tired I look. Thank you Dr. Backstein and I would and have recommended him.  Respond

29/05/14 5 5 5 5 I am incredibly grateful to have found Dr. Backstein! He did a flawless breast implant and tummy tick surgery on me last October and wow am I pleased!! I have to say the process was just terrific from start to finish from receptionists to surgery to recovery. At my consult Dr. Backstein was thorough and professional and he did speak to me about all aspects of the procedures. His exam was very thorough and he assisted me in choosing the best implants for my body. The end results are just what I hoped for in that my tummy is very flat and breasts are enlarged but remain athletic and suitable. My scars all have healed very very nicely. Thanks Dr. Backstein from my heart you have changed my life!  Respond

14/05/14 5 5 5 5 I had my chest done by Dr Backstein. The doctor did a masterful job of flattening me out and getting my gynecomastia eliminated. He did the liposuction to perfect results. I suggest you see him if you've got the problem. He won't sell you unnecessary surgery and is generally a very cool guy.

06/04/14 2 3 1 3 I met with Dr Backstein for a consultation for Breast augmentation. He was knowledgable with the information about the procedure and answering my questions. Once I went in to the second room, I felt that very little effort was done on his part to size me with the right implants. He did only a VERY basic measurement of my breast, but other plastic surgeons they i have seen also had tools they used and wrote it down! dr backstein didn't do any of this! One Dr double checked 3 times to make sure his measuring were correct! Now that type of detail is what I call a GOOD plastic surgeon. On top of all that, he was suggesting I go 350cc's which I think are WAY to big for my small frame size of 90lbs and very petite. I will not be using him for my surgery,(obviously) and HIGHLY recommend you see at least 2-3 before choosing a PS.... especially since it is such a pricey and risky surgery (can't change a botch job, unless your wealthy). Just from my consultation, I would not recommend him.  See Responses

Dr Backstein is an excellent plastic surgeon who is genuine and honest. If ever I had a question or concern Dr Backstein would immediately reply to me via email.

05/11/13 5 5 5 5 I decided to go with Dr. Backstein for my gynecomastia and areola reduction surgery in September 2012, after consults with Dr Dupere (good), Lista (thief), and Rice (good). I wish every doctor could be like Dr. Backstein. The experience with him, and results of the surgery have had an immense impact on my mental well-being, and I happily refer him to anyone I can. He has never been late for an appointment, yet always spent as much time as I needed when I saw him. He is thorough, and makes sure you understand the different options, and the benefits and detriments of each. Everything went smoothly the day of the surgery, and on time. He promptly responded to any questions I had post-operatively, by phone and email – without delay. It has been over a year since the surgery, and I am very happy with the results. I should also mention that Susie, the Office Manager, is always pleasant and helpful. The experience with Dr. Backstein was excellent, and definitely worth paying a little more.

12/08/13 5 5 5 5 I consulted with 3 top Toronto surgeons before deciding on Dr. backstein for my breast aug (300cc silicone, under muscle). He was the most personable and the most concerned with what I wanted and worried about. The other surgeons encouraged me to go bigger and dismissed my concerns about pain. Dr. Backstein really listened. I paid extra to have the surgery at the Royal York surgical suite, and stayed the night before my morning surgery and the night after. It was worth every penny. I would not have been able to go straight home after the sugergy. If you book a room through the Dr's office, there are significant discounts (which we weren't aware of until after). I was worried about pain, but with percocets for the first 48 hours and my husband there to help, recovery was easier than I expected. I was gardening by the third day! And the results really do look amazing!  Respond

13/06/13 5 5 5 5 I had a breast augmentation (550cc, silicone gel, high profile, round, smooth implants) done on April 4th. I am thrilled to say that my procedure was a success, I was virtually pain free and I have never been happier or more confident with my new enhancement. Dr. Backstein and his entire staff were not only helpful and polite, but there were knowledgable and understanding. They treated me with the utmost respect and I would highly recommend Dr. Backstein for any procedure you might be considering. My procedure was on time, and there were other women there having the same procedure so we were all able to talk and feel more comfortable we weren't alone on the big day. After my procedure I was monitored closely and was discharged only about an hour later. My follow ups went smoothly and never had any complications - but Dr. Backstein was always there to answer any questions I had (via email). I will never hesitate in going back to see Dr. Backstein for future procedures. Thank you Dr!!!!  Respond

23/01/13 5 5 5 5 I had my consult with Dr. Backstein this week. I found that reading these reviews were really helpful in making my ultimate decision. Previous to seeing Dr Backstein I felt as though I was only a number in a very long line. I was so blown away by the support and friendliness of the staff that work at Steeles Ave Cosmetic Clinic. They were helpful and polite and knew exactly what they were talking about. Dr. Backstein was on time, friendly, helpful and actually listened to my comments, questions and concerns before providing his knowledge and expertise. I have never felt more comfortable in a medical setting than I did this week. I left and made a booking for my breast augmentation surgery (which is only a month from now). The entire process was made so easy by Dr Backstein and his team. Without hesitation I would recommend them for any procedure you are thinking of. Good Luck!  Respond

16/01/13 5 5 5 5 Absolutely talented surgeon. I've done serious research when i was looking for plastic surgeon. This doctor is the best in Toronto, no doubt. He is very attentive, very honest, not trying to sell you something you don't need. The stuff is very friendly, supportive and helpful. I had my breast augmentation on Friday. Felt absolutely fine right after the surgery, no fever, no side effects from anesthesia, no bruises, no excessive swelling. The pain was really light-haven't taken even Advil. I was out with friends on Sunday already. 2 months later- the result is just unbelievable. I'm really impressed with his job. Highly recommend this doctor to everyone. Amazing surgeon!

15/04/12 5 5 1 1 UNETHICAL DR. BACKSTEIN: i went to see him for liposuction and he suggested that he could correct abnormal pectorial area by adding fat from my love handles, i agreed and that was my worst mistake in my life. 6 Weeks after the surgery i noticed that the area where he added fat was hard, very hard and sticking outwards, so i went to him and he said keep rubbing them and it will disolve, well its been more that 6 years and the hard lumps are permanent now. I went to see dr. backstein 2 years ago and he said basically to leave and he can't help me, if i wanted his help then i would have to pay another $3000. He has a signed document that protects him from issues like this as per my lawyers advise i can't do anything but to warn others that if you could see what he has done to me you would never hire him, NEVER  See Responses

01/03/12 2 5 1 1 Not sure why there are such great reviews here - I never write these but need to warn others who might have hesitation. The staff seem very inexperienced compared to others in the field, and more like booking agents rather than knowledgable pre and post op. The office was very unprofessional for a cosmetic surgeon. I felt like I was at my GP's for a check-up. When I'm paying 8grand plus it better be top notch- not with a consultation in a 5 foot waiting room with enough room only for 2 chairs and the PS standing in front of me. This was my 3rd consult, for breast aug, Backstein did NOT take into consideration my measurements and offered advice counter to both other ps without fully explaining. he uses smooth (WHY?)high profile implants, I did go with my first consult PS, mod+ and still have a 3 finger gap, HP would have looked ridiculous. And I maxed out at 100cc lower than Backstein would have done. Still ended up with stretch marks. I can't help but think how bad it would have been.  See Responses

He is honest and caring, and he made me feel comfortable as much as he could when removing sutures and draining tubs. Suzy is a very nice, beautiful, and helpful lady. I'm very satisfy with the experience, and I will recommend Dr. Backstein to anyone who are interested in cosmetic surgery.  Respond

16/06/09 4 5 5 5 Had implants done with this dr. Dr. Backstein is a gem. He does not advertise wildly like many money hungry surgeons do but I can guarantee he does better work than them. I work in this industry and have seen the results of many of the "famous" surgeons. He is also honest and easy to talk to. I know several people who have had breasts done by Dr Backstein and we all agree he is the best in the city. We all have the right size choice, hardly visible scars and are all extremely happy.  Respond

14/05/09 1 5 5 5 He was honest and the best doctor I've met to date. His staff the worst you can meet. She's terrible, very rude, she acts like she knows it all.  Respond

31/10/08 4 5 3 5 I had breast implants by Dr.Backstein. Great doctor if you are looking to be treated as a human and not just cha-ching in his bank account.I however did have some complications. Dr. Backstein DID try and help me out to correct it, however, I felt as if he thought I was fine the way I was. This was my money, my body and I am the person who has to live with it. He was not overly keen on re-doing the surgery but he did. This time around I found him far less helpful. Which made me feel like cha-ching in his bank account. I do think he is very knowledgeable and a great person, I just felt a little thrown under the rug round 2. Results of second surgery are successful, but I do feel they could have been better if he had taken more time to address everything more cautiously with me. I DO recommend him and I would and do plan to go back to him.  Respond

02/06/08 5 5 5 5 I was not completely sure of what to expect going into a breast reduction. But and I say BUT, Dr Backstein out did himself with my surgery. They look great! I was told by my peers that they look like implants. I would recommend him to my entire family whom I love and cherish.  Respond
