Dr. Buonassisi is amazing! I had my rhinoplasty at 16 (5 years ago) and I was really nervous but he answered all my questions and was super nice. I also had a deviated septum and would get nose bleeds almost every day and he fixed that during the surgery as well! I haven't had a nose bleed ever since and the surgery made a huge difference but looks very natural at the same time. Highly recommend!
I had a wonderful experience at 8West. I saw Dr. Buonassisi for rhinoplasty and a chin implant. I was an out-of-town patient (from Calgary) and I flew into Vancouver for the procedure. The results are excellent, I am extremely happy that I went to Dr. Buonassisi. It was well worth the trip. Dr Buonassisi is very talented and I read the reviews on realself before I booked a consultation with him. We used Skype for the consultation, and he showed me in real-time different 'morphs' of my nose on his computer. He sent me the pictures of the different changes that were possible with my nose and I shared them with my family. I felt that I was in good hands with Dr. Buonassisi. His clinic staff were all welcoming and polite. I highly recommend his practice.
I think that I should have had this procedure done 10 years ago. I wish I had done it sooner. I find that I'm more interested in makeup and upkeeping my appearance since having this done, it has done wonders for my self confidence.
Dr. Buonassisi has honestly changed my life forever and I would recommend him to anyone. I went to Dr. Buonassisi for my Rhinoplasty surgery earlier this year. I have always been self conscious about my nose, and the way it looked, so my parents and I decided it was time to fix it. When we arrived to his office, we were automatically greeted by his wonderful secretory. Once we met Dr. Buonassisi, he examined my nose, and told me exactly what he will have to do and how the procedure will go. Through out the entire appointment he was very polite and knowledgable. He answered all the questions I had and went into full detail when answering the questions.
When it came to the operation date, everyone at the facility was also very welcoming. I had an IV sedation and i only remember parts of the surgery and the entire surgery only lasted 45 minutes! The healing process was great, and i had very minimal bruising and swelling.
It has been 6 months since my surgery and honestly, I couldn't be happier with the result of my nose. Dr. Buonassisi did an outstanding job. He made my nose seem so natural. People do not believe me when I tell them that I had it surgically fixed.
I recommend Dr. Buonassisi to anyone and everyone. He is an outstanding doctor who truly cares about his patients. This entire process has been worth every single penny.
Much like a horrible boyfriend, I would love to broadcast far and wide that no one should ever see this doctor. I have never been treated so rudely and with so little compassion in my life. A radiologist report stated that I had a deviated septum, Dr. Bounasissi said the radiologist was wrong and when I teared up (debilitating face pain for 8 years at that point) he said that I obviously have psychological problems and should get on medication; even if it didn't make the pain go away, I wouldn't care as much.
I since found a doctor who actually knows how to do his job. A simple 40 minute surgery and I no longer have face pain and repeated sinus infections. Dr. Bounasissi should not practice medicine. Perhaps a research job would be more appropriate, if I thought he had the understanding to succeed. Something far distant from people, in any case.
Most of the reviews seem to be positive, and those from plastic surgery patients. Maybe it's the money that makes the difference or maybe he's smartened up in the years since I saw him, who knows. I would honestly try to perform surgery on myself before trusting this man.
Honestly I don't write many reviews but I just had to write this one because I had the best experience I could've possibly had with a surgery. The staff were super sweet, smiling, helpful, they joke around with you, answer all your questions, hold your hand if you're scared.
And the doctor is very talented himself. I had local anesthesia and I was aware of what was going on but I just kept my eyes closed and it seemed like it was over in 10 minutes. No pain after surgery, minor swelling currently on day 2.
The only pain I really felt was the shots for the IV and numbing of the nose, but other than that, I would do this over again 348438 times because it is so worth it!
Dr. Tomas J Buonassisi! where to start? Hes and amazing doctor. He is very polite knowledgeable and his skills as a surgeon are amazing. I had a Rhinoplasty done and the final out come is better then anything I thought was possible. From the moment I walked through the door for that first consultation to the very last checkup Dr. B and his team at 8 west medical have been nothing was professional. As an individual I tend to worry a lot, I always need to know what can happen, what are the worst case possibilities and what are the chances/ odds of that occurring to me. Dr. B gave me solid information and showed me concrete evidence of what is possible and what is realistic in my surgery. Key bits of information I needed to move forwards with the operation.
So about the operation, I went under full sedation, and when I woke I couldn't feel and thing. The operation was over and I was ready to go home. My recovery process was fast and I barley had any pain. The first week was tough to sleep but that was because of the nose splints. Id say my recovery process was the same as anyone else's. Just google it haha.
I guess the last thing I wanna say is Dr. B thank you! You and your team are fantastic and you have given me a new look on life(both literally and metaphorically). I am very happy I made the decision to work with you and your team, and I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. :)
I went to Dr. Buonassisi for Eye Lid - Lower Transconj surgery. This was such a successful surgery! I couldn't be more happy. My under eye puffy bags are completely gone. In case you didn't know this surgery is when the Doctor removes the fat from under your eyes so you don't have that puffy tired look.
Dr.B also cauterized some blood vessels making my dark eye circles fade a lot. This surgery was just for fixing puffy eyes. Usually there is not much you can do for dark eye circles but Dr.B ended up making that better too. :)
I've always had dark eye circles since I was a child and in my late twenties I started to get puffy under eyes. It really got me down because I dealt with the tired dark eye circles all my life and then all the sudden I got puffy bags at 30! I researched for a couple years on the best Vancouver surgeons for baggy eyes and found Dr. Buonassisi. His reviews were really great and I booked the appointment. From the moment I booked the appointment to the day of my surgery Dr. Buonassisi and staff were super friendly, comforting, positive and over all very professional. The results were so great!!! After the surgery I was a little out of it from the meds but I had little pain. I had to take a week of of work because of the bruising and dry eyes. After 2 weeks the bruising went away, I felt normal and people were noticing my fresh face. If I could, I would give Dr. B and staff at 8west 6 stars because he helped lighten up my dark eye circles. If you are thinking of getting rid of puffy under eyes I highly recommend Dr. Buonassisi at 8West.
I went to Dr. Buonassisi for my Rhinoplasty surgery (hump reduction and tip rotation) and I couldn't have been more impressed! I spent months researching and meeting with different cosmetic surgeons before I made my final decision. Dr. B and his staff were very knowledgeable, kind, and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I am the type of person who is scared at the sight of a needle and they made the whole procedure effortless and comfortable. Currently I am at 2 weeks post-op and I love my new nose.. It suits me and is exactly what was promised!
I had my eye lid surgery almost 2 years ago .3 month later he corrected one my eye lid but still doesn't look right. The second time they put me in the room and they left me there 15 min no check on me. If you not paying (2 nd time) you are not welcome this is how I felt. I WOULDN'T go back ever.
I’m a college student and I was very nervous about rhinoplasty, both because I was worried the outcome wouldn’t be what I’d hoped for, and because of what I thought people would say/think if they noticed. It’s been a few months since my surgery and those worries seem insignificant now. My nose looks absolutely great! I would definitely recommend 8West – everyone was caring, considerate and professional. My nose was always something that used to bug me; ever since elementary school it’s been a source of insecurity – but now it’s something I’m happy about, the surgery made such a positive difference. Everyday when I look in the mirror or see pictures of myself, I’m so glad I decided to get rhinoplasty with Dr. Buonassisi.
