Very happy with the results
I got a breast augmentation a year ago from DR. Whidden, my experience from start to finish was amazing. I am very happy with the result and the procedure was everything I hoped for and more. He listened to exactly what I wanted and gave great advice in the consult to directing me the right way, to get the results I was hoping for! I have had many women ask me where I went to get this procedure done and am always more then happy to pass on DR. Whidden name, as I know he will do a great job like he did with myself! I would strongly recommend him to any women interested. The clinic is beautiful and the staff were very polite and professional.
Professional and kind
My whole experience, from beginning to end, was professional and kind! Dr. Whidden was very thorough and informative when I was deciding on what I would like to have done. I elected to have a breast augmentation, lift, and tummy tuck ” The Mommy Makeover”. After 4 children, it was my way of rewarding my body for a job well done! The care I received from the moment I entered the hospital and through to the healing process exceeded all of my expectations! My results are amazing, natural and beautiful!
The entire staff at that surround Dr. Whidden are so professional, kind, accommodating and knowledgeable. Dr. Whidden himself is truly the best surgeon – from initial consult to post procedure, I can not express enough how pleased I am with the service, advice I received and the results I have seen. I know many of my dear lady friends that have gone through similar procedures, with various doctors, and through our conversations I can honestly say that it is strongly agreed in my circle that the Whidden results and recoveries are top notch!
I am 1 year post op breast augmentation (implants) by Dr. Whidden. I can’t say enough about this clinic, Dr. Whidden, and his staff! They are all incredible and it was the best experience I could have ever had. I am so happy with the results and have never regretted my decision!
At the initial consult the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Dr. Whidden was extremely professional and answered all my questions and put my mind at ease. I chose a size that day but then decided later on that I wanted to go back for resizing as I felt I would be more comfortable with a smaller implant. They accommodated me right away and made me feel so relaxed and there was never any pressure. They allowed me to take my time and choose what I felt comfortable with. I emailed Trista many times with a ton of questions and she was always so helpful!
I was nervous about the surgery but it went extremely well and recovery was better than I expected. Dr. Whidden and his staff were so caring and kind and made sure to call if I ever had any questions.
I would highly recommend Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery and Dr. Whidden!
I came from Red Deer to Calgary just to see Dr. Whidden and his team. I had heard amazing things so my expectations were high and he still went above and beyond. From the initial phone call to the first appointment his girls are absolutely amazing. They are an amazing group of women and so friendly. From my first appointment with Dr Whidden any doubts I had about the procedure were put to rest pretty fast. The attention to detail he has is absolutely phenomenal. I left with zero doubt and knew it was something I 100% wanted done by him. The day of the procedure anyone involved walked me through the whole process which I thought was amazing. They care so much about the patients that come through their door. I’m now 6 weeks post op and my results are amazing. My follows ups have been fantastic and I am beyond happy with the results I received. Thank you guys so much!!
Dr. Whidden and his whole team were amazing to work with. I had consults at a couple other offices and as soon as I met with Dr. Whidden I knew I would be having my surgery with him. He was calming and explained everything so that I would be comfortable and fully knew what to expect. The nurses and everyone else were also so professional and kind. I am so happy with my results and would I highly recommend Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery centre! There’s a reason Dr. Whidden is so highly recommended!
