About Dr. Benjamin Gelfant
According to Dr. Gelfant, one of the greatest joys in practicing medicine is having personal interactions with patients, this piece is often overlooked in the rush to diagnose and treat. Dr. Gelfant gives each patient a personal encounter to build a relationship based on trust and understanding. Throughout his medical career, Dr. Gelfant has received extensive education and training in the field of plastic surgery. He regards his respective field as an artisan craft that requires constant practice and refinement. Dr. Gelfant has completed national and international surgical training and finds great satisfaction in his practice and in improving the lives of his patients. During his general practice, he was able to successfully diagnose both diabetes and hyperthyroidism in a patient with life-threatening hypoglycemic episodes. This diagnosis prompted the patient to consult a specialist, have his thyroid treated, and his diabetes stabilized, resulting in a significantly improved quality of life. He has dealt with many simple and complex diagnoses and revisions and finds it to be an extraordinary experience to put a challenging diagnosis and a successful treatment plan together. Dr. Gelfant’s practice, a leading provider of private surgical care in British Columbia, makes the surgery experience pleasant for patients. His practice also provides opportunities for him to exchange ideas on a casual basis with three or four other plastic surgeons who are visiting and operating on the same day.

You're in safe hands
I highly recommend choosing Dr. Gelfant as your surgeon. I went to Dr. Gelfant for a breast augmentation and could not be happier with my results. Many people ask me who my surgeon was, and I will continually refer them to Dr. Gelfant. His expertise, professionalism, and care are unmatched. His staff are highly professional and responded to all of my questions/concerns promptly. I would not hesitate to choose Dr. Gelfant as my surgeon again and I advise anyone looking for a surgeon to book a consultation with him. His work is absolutely beautiful and you will be in safe hands!
Thank you Dr. Gelfant!
Amazing and knowledgeable
Dr Gelfant and Staff are amazing and very knowledgeable. I was searching for a perfect surgeon to do my breast lift and augmentation for over a year and a half then I stumbled upon Dr. Gelfant.
I made an consultation and was surprised how quickly they got me in. No, quick doesn’t mean that he is not as good or busy as other surgeons. He has a private practice and this is his main focus.
Dr. Gelfant tells you his true recommendations in size and what will be best for you. He has lots of experience in what he does.
I went through with my surgery and I could not be more ecstatic about the results! My breast are perfect and the scars are so minimal you can barely tell. It has been 3 months and it was the best money I have ever spent. I highly recommend Dr. Gelfant and would go right back to him if I ever needed a 2nd revision!
I could not be more pleased! At 65, I am here to encourage “women of a certain age” to consider an augmentation. It’s never too late for beauty and Dr Gelfant is the best of the best. Believe me, I did the research. He’s a brilliant surgeon and to assure the best possible outcome is extremely thorough in his approach to preoperative preparation and postoperative care. His staff is amazing! They are caring, professional and so responsive! I never waited more than a few minutes for returned email or phone call. I could not be happier with my new sexy breasts…they are amazing! Thank you Dr. G
