Why Trust Your Face to Vancouver Facelift Specialist Dr. Buonassisi?


Dr. Buonassisi is a superbly trained and highly experienced cosmetic surgeon, and widely considered a top facelift surgeon, facelift specialist and facial rejuvenation expert. He is a dual Board Certified Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon with 20 years experience performing cosmetic procedures of the face, across the wide spectrum of facial rejuvenation techniques ranging from non surgical to surgical. He performs a high volume of surgeries through his Vancouver, BC practice at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Skin Clinic on a weekly basis.

What makes Dr. Buonassisi particularly unique is that he is one of less than 5% of other surgeons who regularly performs the greatly complex Deep Plane Facelift technique, with soaring patient satisfaction rates. A highly effective procedure that can yield the largest degree of lift while preserving a natural look, the Deep Plane Facelift is also lauded for its relatively quicker and easier recovery.

Not all may be a candidate for a Deep Plane Facelift, however. Dr. Buonassisi also regularly performs other facelift techniques and more minimally invasive surgeries such as the Mini Facelift or Brow Lift, while offering a full range of non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments including Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing with HALO technology, light-based skin rejuvenation with BBL technology, non energy-based skin treatments such as microneedling, and more. If a facelift isn’t quite right for you, Dr. Buonassisi and 8 West Clinic will educate, recommend, and provide the solution that is right for you.
