Il y a maintenant presque 5 mois, j'ai subi à la clinique du Dr Samaha un lifting cervico-facial avec, ma foi, des résultats qui font l'envie de toutes mes amies - enfin de celles à qui j'en ai parlé - parce que personne d'autre ne s'en est aperçu ... De fait, je suis retournée au travail 17 jours après l'intervention et déjà à ce moment-là , je n'avais aucunement l'air de quelqu'un qui a été opérée ... même ma sœur que je n'avais pas mis au courant de mon projet souhaitant avoir une opinion franche et objective d'une personne proche de moi qui ne se sente pas obligée de me faire plaisir - a été rasée au sol lorsque je lui en ai parlé 4 semaines après l'opération ... parce que j'ai été obligée de lui dire, elle n'avait rien remarqué .... sinon qu'elle me trouvait particulièrement en forme et rayonnante. Toute la procédure, tant avant, que pendant et qu'après s'est très bien déroulée et il n'y a eu aucune complication sauf un horrible bleu sous un œil - pas du tout douloureux et qui s'est résorbé en 8 jours - mais qui, sur le coup, est toujours impressionnant. Le personnel de la clinique s'est montré charmant, compétent et professionnel et je m'y suis sentie bien entourée et en sécurité. Bien que j'aurais aimé, à plus de 60 ans maintenant, avoir la sagesse d'accepter l'inéluctable outrage que laisse le passage du temps, je suis très contente de ma décision et du résultat final qui fait très naturel. Le Dr Samaha est un brillant chirurgien qui a réalisé un travail d'orfèvre. Je me félicite également de l'avoir choisi parce qu'il est ORL de formation. Je trouvais très rassurant de remettre mon visage entre les mains d'un spécialiste qui connaît précisément la structure des os, des muscles et des nerfs du visage. De plus, il est gentil comme tout. Il ne s'est jamais montré ni impatient ni irrité par mon bavardage, mes états d'âme, mes questions, mes interrogations et insécurités en tous genres qui doivent, au fond, paraître bien futiles à quelqu'un qui comme lui, refait la face du monde à tous les jours ...

C'est en accompagnant notre fille jeune adulte pour une rhinoplastie que nous avons rencontré le Dc Samaha. Nous avions auparavant consulter un autre chirurgien pour la même opération et nous étions sortis de cette première visite traumatisés. Le Dc Samaha, par son professionnalisme, ses explications, son écoute, son programme informatique nous permettant de voir le résultat probant et aussi le fait qu'il n'y a pas de cicatrice externe selon sa méthode de procédure ont fait en sorte que dès la fin de cette rencontre, nous savions que nous avions trouvé le médecin de confiance pour notre fille. Nous avons pris quelques jours pour réfléchir à tout ça même si pour notre fille c'était une décision bien mûrie. Le nez est quand même au centre du visage et surtout il s'agissait du beau visage de notre fille. La décision prise la date a été fixée et une 2e rencontre a été faite. Nous avons suivi les recommandations de la clinique à la lettre, l'opération, la convalescence très peu médicamentée ( presque aucune douleur dans les jours qui suivent, un peu de décoloration autour des yeux, la lèvre supérieure légèrement enflée c'est tout) et elle est de retour dans sa vie active et avec une meilleure confiance en elle. Je croyais avoir de la difficulté à voir ma fille avec "un nouveau" nez mais au contraire, celui çi est si beau et si naturel qu'on a maintenant oublié qu'il a y déjà eu une petite bosse dessus. Félicitations à toute l'équipe et je salue tous ceux et celles qui ont le courage de faire une chirurgie. Si c,est votre désir, je vous recommande fortement le Dc Mark Samaha

I had rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Samaha in June 2017 and had an excellent experience from beginning to end. First and foremost, the results are amazing and so very natural. I am so so happy with the results – I still can’t believe it! Dr. Samaha takes whatever time is needed at each consultation to thoroughly discuss your expectations and his plan of action. It was apparent from the first few minutes of my first consultation that he is extremely experienced, skilled and confident in how to achieve the ideal results. I had consulted with another surgeon in Montreal years prior. That other surgeon was not confident that he could correct one of the main issues with my nose and for that reason I backed out of the process. When I first met with Dr. Samaha, without any hesitation, he knew exactly what needed to be done to best correct ALL off the issues with my nose. In addition, at your first consultation, Dr. Samaha will do a digital simulation of the expected results of your rhinoplasty. For me, this was a game-changer. The previous surgeon had not offered this service and I cannot imagine the anxiety going into surgery not having confirmed the expected results. If you are pleased with the simulation, then you can put your mind at ease from there on in. Dr. Samaha will advise you that the actual results will be very, very similar to this digital simulation and in my case he was absolutely right. As a bonus to having such a wonderful and skilled surgeon, Dr. Samaha’s nurse, Valerie, is extremely sweet and very experienced. She was at every meeting and was present before and during the surgery. She will become your best friend during the process. I have nothing but positive things to say about my entire experience with Dr. Samaha and I will be forever thankful to him!

Il y a 10 jours, j'ai eu une rhinoplastie à la clinique du Dr. Samaha, et je n'ai que des commentaires positifs à faire à propos de mon expérience. Lors de ma première consultation, le Dr. et l'infirmière ont répondu clairement à toutes mes questions, ils m'ont expliqué tout le processus et je me suis sentie en confiance dès le départ. La chirurgie s'est très bien passée et la convalescence était très facile. J'étais sceptique lorsque le Dr. m'a dit que je n'aurai probablement pas de douleur, mais j'ai été agréablement surprise de n'avoir AUCUNE douleur, même si mes os du nez ont été limés et cassés. Le Dr. utilise des techniques limitant les inconvénients liés à la rhinoplastie: Je n'avais pas beaucoup de bleus, l'enflure est rapidement partie. Mon pansement a été enlevé hier et je suis incroyablement heureuse du résultat! Mon nez est naturel, en harmonie avec mon visage. L'équipe du Dr. Samaha a toujours été très sympathique et professionnelle, autant les infirmièr(e)s que les secrétaires, et j'ai eu un excellent service. Le Dr. Samaha est à l'écoute des clients, et il a vraiment à coeur leur bien-être. Son infirmière Valérie est un amour! Chaleureuse, incroyablement gentille, avec beaucoup d'expertise. Le Dr. Samaha a fait un miracle avec mon nez, il est un véritable artiste et accorde beaucoup d'importance à chaque détail. Si vous hésitez au sujet du choix d'un chirurgien, je vous conseille fortement le Dr. Samaha, et son équipe. Avoir recours à leurs services a été une des meilleures décisions de ma vie.

J’ai eu recours a une rhinoplastie effectuée par Dr. Samaha il y a 1 semaine. Dès mon appel pour obtenir de l’information J’ai été prise en charge par le personnel du Dr. Samaha. J’ai eu réponse à toutes mes questions et la dame était patiente, courtoise et bien informée. Lors de mon premier RV j’ai rencontré le Dr. Samaha et j’ai su des les premiers instants qu’il avait toutes les compétences et l’experience recherchée. Il a répondu a mes questions et a pris le temps de tout m’expliquer les étapes. Son soucis du détail font de lui un professionnel exemplaire. Sa clinique est propre et équipée a la fin une pointe de la technologie. Je me suis toute de suite sentie en confiance. Dr Samaha a su recruter une équipe dynamique et compétente, tout son personnel est souriant et accueillant. Lors de la chirurgie l’infirmière qui m’a été attitré a été d’une grande douceur et avait beaucoup de délicatesse. Valérie de qui j’ai aussi eu des soins est d’une gentillesse sans précédent. Je recommande l’a clinique à tous mes amis et je recommencerais l’expérience sans hésiter. Milles merci au Dr Samaha qui est selon moi non seulement un chirurgien d’exception mais également un artiste car le résultat est encore plus réussi que j’aurais pu l’imaginer.

This is my unbiased opinion and experience for rhinoplasty procedure performed by dr Mark (and why I think you should check this doctor if you are thinking about it). CONSULTATION: Dr Mark Samaha will listen to your concern and he will give you his opinion and realistic assessment. Listen to him since he performs numerous procedures every week and will know what’s the best in your case (for me the main factor in selecting surgeon was experience in performing rhinoplasty and he has it, he is ORL as well which gave me additional assurance!). He will take pictures during consultation and will show you simulation on his computer what you can expect after operation. Be open minded and keep in mind that even small change on your face will have BIG impact on your overall look. Again, listen to his feedback, it’s his profession and domain and he is doing it daily. You can request to see some sample pictures of other people that have done similar procedure and that can assure you that you are in safe hands and that you will get what you want. OPERATION. Dr Mark performs open and closed surgery. In my case he performed closed surgery (he does it in majority of cases), so no visible scars and much easier to recover! He is using twilight anesthesia (sedation) for operation so you are not put ‘under’, you will breath on your own. Don’t be afraid, they give you injection, prepare IV and next thing you know is when everything is done and you are ready to go home. You don’t remember when you are taken in operation room or anything else. It’s much easier on patient to recover after such procedure and no throat pain from that tube (I just woke up to go home, I ate at home and then I slept until next day). I didn’t get sick and I felt great all the time. RECOVERY: Healing went smoothly, except “black eyes” which is normal, congestion (nose is very swollen) and that I had to carry cast (dressing) over my nose which is good since it protects it. Ice compressions help with swelling but you need to start it immediately when you get home and do it continuously for a day (or you get nice black eyes as me ;). Everything else was normal (read boring). I had zero pain and didn’t need to take even Tylenol (seriously no pain after procedure and he had to shave my nasal bone). Also, I didn’t have any bleeding afterwards (you do need to wear and change small dressing under nose first day). You also will need to take antibiotics for a few days after procedure as infection prevention and steroid pills to minimize swelling (4 days to be precise). After operation a SMALL piece of cotton dressing is inserted in both sides at the tip of the nose, which you will remove the next morning (just pull it out). I could breathe on my nose from the first day (even if very congested) and this makes HUGE difference in recovery. Read other reviews how people suffer from having to breathe all week through their mouth. This is what makes big difference during recovery time. I really had minimal discomfort and it lasted for 2 days (even second day I was very active and restless, no downtime). After a week cast was removed and then it takes a few days for swelling to go down. When cast is removed you will have that ‘avatar movie’ look, swelling will go down in a few days so be patient. CONCLUSION: From the description above you can see why I can highly recommend Dr Mark Samaha, his procedure and technics he is using. If you have esthetical or breathing issues, don’t be afraid and just go for it and fix it. I really didn’t feel I had any ‘operation’ done, recovery was fast and painless. My only regret is that I didn’t do it earlier… I would recommend you to plan for min 2 weeks’ vacation when you have the procedure (just because of swelling and even this is individual), or if you can work from home than even better – save your days for real vacation and work on 2-3rd day after operation ;) I would also like to mention the people on Dr Samaha’s team, they are ALL GREAT people and they do their best to make you feel welcome, comfortable and provide you a professional service which is the most important thing.

Meeting doctor Samaha and his team made my seemingly unattainable dream a reality. The staff was really welcoming and the doctor felt completely available to me. He really listened to my needs and offered advice only a man with such experience could offer. Valerie, his assistant nurse, was simply a treat. She was reassuring, a little ray of sunshine and seemed to know exactly what I needed before I knew it myself. Irene was also a big help during the financial part of the process. She was always available and gave me the information needed for my particular case. The nurse took such good care of me. She succeeded keeping me calm and answered all the questions I had right before the surgery. Really, an amazing team and an unforgettable experience in many ways. About two months later I simply think I have the most beautiful nose ever made!! Love, love, love it!
