Ratings for Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel
I had breast augmentation surgery in 2011 from Dr. Bendor-Samuel. He was very professional and did a wonderful job. It's been 5 yrs since my surgery and not a day goes by that I don't love my breasts. I'm very pleased with how everything went. My only concern I had was after the operation. Once I woke up it seemed too rushed to get me out the door. If I could do it over again I would still choose this doctor however I'd ask for a bit more post-op care.
Fantastic experience with Dr. Bendor-Samuel! I carefully researched and then had an MSI-approved bi-lateral breast reduction in September 2016. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Bendor-Samuel as my surgeon. The quality of, and my experience with consults and the surgery at the QEII was excellent. I believe we have a very good teaching system here in Nova Scotia. I was equally pleased with the promptness and attentiveness of Dr. B. Samuel during all of my follow up visits. And after years of pain and struggle, I'm 'over the moon' happy with my new breasts - it's wonderful! Cosmetically (even as the still very-new scars continue to heal) they look fantastic! For any woman considering this surgery, make sure to "do your homework", talk with a/your GP, be prepared to wait awhile for the consult (an issue for all specialists in NS,) ask questions (including about care and insurance options,) and be an active participant in your care. It's not an overstatement to say this has changed my life - I'm glad it was my GP Dr. Jason Reynolds, my surgeon Dr. Bendor-Samuel, the great folks at the QE II, and the Home Health Care staff at Lawton's on Cobequid Rd. in Sackville who ferried me along! I highly recommend Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel!
Saw Dr. at his private practise for a breast reduction consult and was treated very well in his well appointed office on the Halifax waterfront. Very California spa. You speak to the lovely Dr. but he does not discuss $$$$. The cost is discussed with you by his office manager. The cost is considerable. I asked my GP if I was eligible under MSI. Turns out I was eligible for surgery covered by MSI. So I was seen by the Dr. again but now I'm seen at the hospital and I am not so special. After surgery I was given minimal follow-up. One of the stiches broke. I saw Dr. again and he had a resident in tow. I felt like a lab specimen. Some years later I met a woman who had her surgery in Costa Rica. She showed me her breasts. I was too embarrassed to show her mine. One of my breasts looks pretty good. The other looks like a can opener was the surgical tool. ???? student practice? I am absolutely thrilled with smaller breasts. Best thing I have ever done for myself. But I am sorry that I did not get a good cosmetic result.
I had a breast augmentation (implants and mastopexy) with Dr. Bendor-Samuel and cannot say enough about my experience. I am currently 8 weeks post-op and my results and experience are both better than I could have ever imagined. From my consultation right through to my post-op appointments, everything was smooth sailing and incredible; my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! Choosing to have an elective procedure done is scary. I had never been put under before and have a low tolerance for pain. To say I was nervous is an understatement, but from the moment I walked through the doors at The Landing Surgical Centre I knew I was in good hands. Truth be told, I'm shocked by how easy the whole thing was! Compared to my expectations from what I had researched and read online, it was a total "cake walk". The day of my surgery was incredible and something I will never forget. The care I received from all staff on my operation day was beyond exceptional. It truly takes a talented team of wonderful people to make someone as full of nerves as me feel comfortable. As soon as JoAnne (nurse) greeted me that morning, I knew it was going to be okay. Everyone was so excited for me and made me feel so comfortable, cared for and safe. The highlight of it all however, was the quick-thinking and dedication to my results that Dr. Bendor-Samuel showed during my surgery. Prior to surgery, you select your implant size and they are ordered in. We had agreed on a particular type and size and I signed off on the selection. During my surgery however, while I was out cold, Dr. Bendor-Samuel put in my implants (they were moderate profile) and knew right away that they were not the projection required to give me the result I wanted, based on what we had discussed at length during my consultation (some things you truly just cannot plan for until you "get in there" and actually see what you're dealing with). He made the quick decision to actually phone the hospital and have a high profile set of implants sent down DURING MY SURGERY to ensure that I would be happy. This clearly was something unplanned and unforeseen, but was the perfect judgement call. When I woke up in the recovery room and he told me about the change they had made, I was absolutely blown away. He easily could have just proceeded with what was ordered and I agreed to, but took the initiative to think quickly and outside of the box to ensure I was happy. Not only am I happy, I am THRILLED! Words will never describe how thankful I am that he made that decision on my behalf; to me, that is exactly the kind of surgeon you want to have! I am so happy with my decision to have my operation done by Dr. Bendor-Samuel and his team. It was truly life-changing. There are many decisions to be made when it comes to cosmetic surgery. My advice, ask lots of questions (he will be totally honest with you, which is exactly what you need when making a big decision like this), do not be afraid to ask twice (I went in for a second sizing just to "be sure" and it was not a problem), and trust Dr. Bendor-Samuel's recommendation. He certainly knows his stuff and what's going to work best for your body, lifestyle and desired outcome. This was an absolute first-class experience from tip to tail, and I could not be more pleased with my results.
I just had a Breast Augmentation with Dr Bendor-Samuel and can only say good things of my experience thus far! He's very professional and straight forward which I like, and on the surgery day made me feel at ease. It's only been 3 days and I can tell he's done a fantastic job, and I'm pleased with the size he's recommended me. Staff was always friendly and willing to help with any questions or concerns I had, and the nurses were so comforting and warm. He's the best in Atlantic, don't hesitate to book with him for your BA.

I have been wanting a breast augmentation for some time now & after my consult I felt 100% percent certain on my decision & I'm beyond happy with his amazing skills & also my scars are nearly noticeable now within 6months I highly recommend Dr. Bendor-Samuel , along with his great staff I will be returning if I decide to go with any further surgeries
Tidy vs Tiny This is not my first surgery with Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel. 2 years ago I celebrated my 50th birthday with an arm lift and upper body work. Now at 52, I have returned to have a TT and inner thigh lift....what a dream !! I am still quite certain I was simply slid into someone else's bod while on the table. Lol!! I have never been tiny.... I have NO desire to be tiny.... I simply wanted to be tidy.... and this is a doctor that truly listens and makes dreams come true. As a 200lb 12 yr old, my skin was stretched way before I had any idea of the consequences..... even with pregnancy; there were no 'new' stretch marks !! Nevertheless, my happy life (true story, happiness is not based on size/shape) has gone to a new level with meeting this amazing surgeon-artist. He is a true artist....does wonderful proportions....listens....creates....brings dreams to fruition. Sir, may you ALWAYS be inspired to enrich lives-one surgery at a time. Sincerely, ep
Dr. Bendor-Samuel was amazing from start to finish. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I had breast augmentation in summer 2013 and I am super happy with the results. He worked a miracle and gave me what I had dreamed of for years. One of the best decisions of my life.
