Ratings for Dr. Ian Sunderland
Dr Sunderland is not only an exceptional and talented surgeon but is extremely ethical and caring. I felt that the whole way through the pre and post op process that he genuinely had my best interest and well being in mind. I always felt extremely comfortable asking him questions and felt I always got knowledgeable answers. My procedures couldn’t have gone any better and that is 100 percent due to Dr Sunderland’s expertise, his incredibly organized and competent admin assistant Jesseka, and the team of personable, caring nurses in his team.
I went to see Dr. Sunderland to talk about a procedure I wanted to get done. Don't get me wrong, he is very knowledgable about what he does but he didn't even give me an opportunity to barely speak and he didn't let me ask any questions really, I left my consult feeling like I had no idea what my outcome was going to be. If I'm going to pay $150 for a consult I expect that I should leave feeling confident in what I am getting done.. The fact he barely let me speak is why I am going with someone else.
I am a 36 year old who is not your typical " glam" cosmetic patient-- in all other areas of my life I am low key-- little to no make up, rarely shave my legs, etc. I have started to feel insecure about aging, so I made an appointment to see what could be done. Dr. Sunderland asked me a lot of questions about what result I was looking for, and really made sure we were on the same page. He gave me options, but was not pushy. In the end I got some Botox to soften my " eleven" lines between my brows, and he did some lip filler. I have always been self-concious of my small upper lip which disappears when I smile. I cannot tell you how happy i am with the results. The lip filler I loved immediately. It was not too painful at all, and he showed the perfect amount of restraint. I could tell, people who know me well could tell, but i certainly do not have duck lips. He saved the remainder of the filler and told me i could come back in a week if they were not big enough, but he was smart enough to know not to go too big to begin with because I wanted a more natural look. Two weeks out, and my botox is perfect. I may get some around my eyes next time, as I am so impressed with my forehead. He even gave me a small " brow lift". He talked all about muscle anatomy of the face, and its clear he knows what he is doing. I honestly feel like I look 5-6 years younger. I certainly look happier. I will definately go back. On the way out I purchased some of his own skin care products, and so far I love those, too. All natural, scent free, and decently priced. The best thing about it is that no one even tried to "up sell" me anything-- not the skin care, not extra botox, nothing. I got to ask for what I wanted and I was helped. I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of, rather I felt like I was being taken care of. I've been turned off at other places before when you go in for a consultation and you end up feeling even worse about yourself. Not here. For anyone looking for an honest assessment and for someone to actually listen to what YOU want go see Dr. Sunderland.
I had an injury to my nose about three year ago, I was seen by an ENT who said he could fix it but indeed just made it worse. I struggled with self confidence a long while after that. A friend of my friends had seen Dr Sunderland for other reasons and had referred me to him. I called in to make an appointment his receptionist and I talked for a while and I had described my recent experienceb and issues with my nose she was very helpful and had recommended me to get a referral as she felt this could be covered. I saw my family doctor and got a referral sent to him ASAP. When I had seen him he was very honest with me to what he can do for me and he took the time to speak with me and explain in detail the surgery plans. I was very grateful to have such honest and genuine care I did have my surgery and am very pleased with my results.
Dr Sunderland was amazing !!! I was Very hesitant on breast lift and implants after having children but beyond pleased with the end result . I feel like a new person . Also want to note that Jessica is beyond helpful she is a definite asset to his office !!
Dr. Sunderland did an amazing job on my nose. Going in he said I didn't have a bad nose and the things I wanted to fix weren't the easiest to change. He told me I may come out of the surgery wishing there was more of a change. However I'm amazed at the change he made in my nose. It's perfect and I couldn't be happier. After reviewing Dr. Sunderland's credentials and reading his biography on the University of Saskatchewan website I felt fully confident in his ability to give me a beautiful nose. I'm ecstatic about the outcome of my rhinoplasty. Would go to Dr. Sunderland again for any future plastic surgery interests.
Dr. Sunderland did my labiaplasty. I could not be happier with the results. He is a great doctor. Caring and kind. His staff is great as well. I would highly suggest him for this. The only thing I didn't like is that he lacks before and after pictures on his website. It would be nice to showcase his work.
