Ratings for Dr. Jerome Edelstein
I'm currently 2 months post op and I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Edelstein and his office. He performed my breast augmentation in April 2017 and came off the recommendation from my mom. He is very active on Real Self and recently won the RealSelf Top 100 Award. From beginning to end he was so knowledgeable and respectful. He really took the time to understand what my goal was and recommended sizes from there. His staff is also amazing, his nurse Heather does your sizing appointment and helps you choose your implant size. Her knowledge and experience is indispensable. She was such a great part of the process, using her experience with past procedures in helping you make the right choice. For instance, I had a back and forth battle with myself when trying to finalize a size, I couldn't decide between 370CC and 415CC. Heather told me that just about everyone in my situation who picks the smaller size comes to their post-op follow up wishing they would have chosen bigger. Also once the implant is put under your muscle you do lose a little so they tend to be a bit smaller than just trying them on. I'm so glad she was there to guide me in my decision as I went for the bigger size and I couldn't be happier ---- I know now that I would have been unhappy with the smaller. Another point I wanted to touch on was Dr. Edelstein's bedside manner--he is so kind and comforting. He checked on me before and after my surgery when in hospital and his attitude made my time there a breeze knowing I was in good hands. He is also readily available to answer any questions / concerns post op. A day or two after my surgery I started to react to the pain medication, my entire body was very itchy. I called his after-hours line as this was a Saturday afternoon, spoke with his nurse and within 15 minutes Dr. Edelstein called me directly. He let me know it was a normal reaction and that I can take Benadryl to ease the itching. When I went for my 2 week follow up in the hospital, the nurse there who helped with my bandages was even raving about Dr. Edelstein, saying he was the best around and that she sees women fly from all over Canada to get their procedures performed by him. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Edelstein for anyone searching for the best cosmetic surgeon.
I cannot express my gratitude towards Dr. Edelstein and his team enough. After researching for 3 years and consulting several surgeons, I knew I was making the right choice when choosing Dr. Edelstein as my surgeon for my breast augmentetion. He took the time to understand my expectations, while successfully inputting his professional opinion. Dr. Edelstein and his exceptional team guided me throughout the entire process, which allowed me to feel calm and prepared the whole way through. Aside from my amazing results, I experienced very minimal pain and a very quick recovery! Overall, a truly amazing experience.
Dr. Edelstein was a recommendation from a friend who had seen him for a breast augmentation in early 2017. She couldn't stop raving about how great he was and her results were fantastic, so of course, I had to get myself in for an appointment. My consult was late September 2017, and my surgery was booked very shortly thereafter for mid-October (the consult appointment takes the longest wait, but surgery dates are quick!). First, the consult: I am a very petite and slender individual who was naturally blessed/cursed with very little breast tissue (5'6", 115lb, small bone structure). My goal was to have two small handfuls at the end. I wanted something natural, and something that would maintain my slender profile. I was clear about not wanting to be top heavy. Sure enough, Dr. Edelstein listened and delivered. He gave me three size recommendations of which I went with the smallest: 280cc low profile plus cohesive gel, a slightly wider, flatter implant known for delivering a more natural slope and overall profile. The PERFECT choice for me. Dr. Edelstein's greatest attribute is perhaps his easy going, personable demeanour. He exudes a quiet confidence, and that in turn, puts you as a patient completely at ease. I opted for the surgery date at Humber River Hospital vs. the private surgery clinic, and have to say the entire process was smooth and enjoyable. Overall, I was impressed by how the hospital operated - from the text message notifications, to the bedside care. All fantastic. In terms of recovery, as promised, it was a very smooth process which is undoubtedly attributed to Dr. Edelstein's elevated surgical technique/approach. I did end up with every possible post-op side effect (from the hypersensitivity, to the mondor's cords, to the crackling under the skin) but hey, nothing I didn't prepare myself to undergo and all considered normal to expect. I am now almost 5 months post-op and my breasts are healing great. So pleased! Best money I've spent and exactly the outcome I had hoped for.
I am currently 5 months post-op second surgical procedure with Dr. Edelstein and I am very happy. I had a breast augumentation in 2014 and my scar is so thin you can barely see anything, I had a full abdominoplasty in September and I was scared because he said the scar would be hip to hip, immediately, I thought big ugly scar, that I would most likely have to cover with a tattoo. I am 5 months post op and I can barely see a scar, just a small thin line, which you can’t even notice unless I show it to you.,I went on vacation a couple weeks ago and I wore the tiniest bikini and my scar stayed hidden. I also thought I would be in alot a pain after my surgery, but it really wasn’t bad at all. I am please with my breast, they look and feel natural,and I always get tons amd tons of compliments. I reccommend all my friends having their procedure to see Dr. Edelstein, not only is he professional and the best at what he does, he is pleasant, and kind, and he took his time to explain the procedure and answered my calls after my surgery when I had questions. His staff, Heather and Louise are wonderful. I am more confident and happy and I feel beautiful. Thank you Dr. Edelstein and staff! You are all awesome! 😊 KD
I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Edelstein just slightly over a year ago. Having 2 children my main priority was health and safety so I was looking for an exceptional specialist who would pay extra attention to those things. And I’m very happy i’ve chosen Dr. Edelstein. Before the operation I was quite nervous but doctor was very comforting and calm so it made me assure that i’m In good hands. The operation went quite well although I would prefer the anesthesiologist gave me the smaller dose of anesthesia as the first 24 hours after the operation I felt quite horrible. Overall the intense recovery period lasted for about 10 days. Surprisingly I didn’t feel any pain at all. May be just the tension. I even didnt need the pain killers. In about 2 weeks I got back to my real self. I am very happy with the results and everybody says I look quite natural. The staff is always there to help and very friendly. I have recommended Dr. Edelstein to my friends already and I think I will come back for other procedures when needed.
My experience with Dr. Edelstein and the staff has been excellent. They all have been very punctual , knowledgeable and helpful in all areas I had questions and concerns in. After I left the hospital they called me a few times to make sure I was doing well and they always re assured me to call the office if I had any concerns or issues. Dr. Edelstein and the staff were very supportive for me during this process. I am very, very happy with the results of my tummy tuck and breast lift. Thank you so much for all that you have done!!!!!!!
I am now four months post op and very happy with the results. I did a lot of research before coming in on what questions I should be asking and Dr. Edelstein was very understanding and answered all my questions. My chest was asymmetrical and one breast barely filled an A cup so I wanted to even that out and go up to a C cup. Heather was very knowledgeable and helped me out with the sizing. The operation went smoothly and Heather even calmed me down after I was panicking that they swelled a lot and one was a bit bigger than the other. They have now evened out and feel very natural and you can’t even see the scar. Overall it was an amazing experience and all the staff are great.
