Professional and excellent surgeon

r Lacey is a true professional and an excellent surgeon. My experience with Dr Lacey started after I had an accident leaving me with a gaping infected hole in my shin. Somehow Dr Lacey was able to clean and close the large hole with very little tissue to work with. Incredible! I believe that many surgeons would not have been able to accomplish this. His bedside manner is fantastic. He is clear and methodical. I recommend Dr Lacey!

Kanata Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery is a beautiful, clean facility. Staff and nurses are kind and highly experienced, while being an excellent resource for surgery questions and concerns. Anesthesiologist is caring, gentle, skillful and has a great ability to calm any worry. Dr. James Lacey shows compassion for his patients care. He is highly skilled, competent and most importantly provides a commitment to an exceptional result! Would recommend KPCS as your first choice for all cosmetic and plastic surgery!

I am really pleased with my results and enjoyed my experience.

Not only is Dr Lacey very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable, but he is very attentive to detail and excellent at his work.

I had minor surgery and was able to go back to work the very next day (working remotely) and able to go back to work in the office after 10 days. I had excellent care throughout, the anesthesiologist did a great job, Dr Lacey’s work left me with little bruising, the recovery nurse was very knowledgeable, and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. This was my second surgery with Dr Lacey and I highly recommend him.

I would 100% recommend Dr. Lacey and Kanata Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery to anyone! Since the first time I was in contact with KPSC about booking a consultation, I knew this was the right place for me. The staff have been warm and welcoming and the surgical team very thorough and helpful. Dr. Lacey was excellent from the very first meeting; he is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable about the procedure, that I was making the right decision. He was not pushy whatsoever, but listened to exactly what I was looking for. The price was competitive and the location was beautiful. My surgery and recovery went perfectly! I had absolutely no pain after and was able to move around within a day. Dr. Lacey is so skilled and had a very gentle technique which allowed for a speedy recovery. I am so happy with my results!

Dr. Lacey and his team are incredible! I have had a couple procedures with him already and recently had a tummy tuck. I’m very excited with the outcome and can’t wait to see final results after swelling goes down. He is a perfectionist and this is why I trust and love him. Honestly the whole team is friendly, caring and always there to help. Thank you!
