The wait is worth it
Everything with Dr.Pugash and his team was great from the very start. I couldn’t be happier with the results and how seamless everything went. Dr.Pugash is completely honest and truly cares about his patients. His experience and expertise really shine through. I could not have asked for a better plastic surgeon. The wait is definitely worth it!
Very skilled and professional in this field
Dr. Pugash is a very thorough and skilled professional in this field. He did an amazing job on my surgery and the whole process from the initial consult to my follow-up appointments has been easy and efficient. I would definitely list him as one of the best surgeons here in Vancouver! Definitely worth the wait!
I am writing this review to help anyone make their decision and go see Dr Pugash and his fantastic team. From the moment I made the phone call to Simone, his receptionist (has been working with Dr Pugash for a very long time)(super friendly and loved talking to her from the moment I chatted with her on the phone), I had a really good feeling about everything. I met with Dr Pugash and loved how thorough and detailed he was about everything that would happen. As a mother of 2 young children I wanted a change in my breasts (you all know what it’s like after having kids what thy do to your body lol). He was able to advise what the best fit would be for my frame and gave me different options. He answered any questions that I had for him and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. During surgery, the staff were fantastic and helpful and extremely kind. I had my breasts done over a year ago and am super happy with the outcome of them and how they look. I would highly recommend Dr Pugash to anyone of my friends and anyone inquiring as I know how nerve racking it can be. Dr Pugash and his team are very very friendly, courteous and you can tell they truly care about their patients.
Hands down best doctor in Vancouver
I waited almost a year for my consultation with Dr. Pugash and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait! I could not be happier with my breast augmentation experience – everything went flawlessly. One of my friends – who’s also had a BA by Dr. Pugash – calls him a “magician” … I didn’t get to fully appreciate this until I got to compare my recovery with that of friends who had their breasts done by other doctors. Of course, every person recovers differently, but I suppose there is a REASON Dr. Pugash has the longest waitlist in the Lower Mainland. He is HANDS DOWN the best doctor in Vancouver for breast augmentations.
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Pugash
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Pugash and Simone. I originally went to Dr. Pugash 11 years ago for my first Breast Augmentation Surgery, and then again for my “refresh” augmentation this past spring. 11 years ago, he was the best Dr. out there and still is now. I was thrilled to find out he was still working when I was seeking another augmentation. Now my breasts have fully healed, and they look amazing. Dr. Pugash is very honest and straight up. I fully trust his professional opinion and am extremely happy with the outcome. I had no issues or complications.
From the start of my recent surgery, Simone was a pleasure to speak to on the phone and to see in the office. Dr. Pugash was always very professional and knowledgeable. At the surgical center where he operates, all of the staff I came across had nothing but great things to say about Dr. Pugash. He is a perfectionist and has a great bedside manner. He covers any post-op situation before the surgery, so there are no surprises. And he personally called my husband to follow up with us the next day after surgery.
I know several women who have gotten breast surgeries done. Everyone who has gone to Dr. Pugash is perfectly happy, and anyone who went to another surgeon is regretting it. I have recommended Dr. Pugash to them all without hesitation.
Top plastic surgeon in Vancouver
Dr. Pugash is rated as one of the top plastic surgeons in Vancouver and for good reason. He is an artist of the body. I recently had a BA done with Dr. Pugash and the results blew my expectations out of this world. He presents as very direct and matter of fact during consultation and size fitting but he truly warmed up during surgery and with aftercare. His and Simone’s aftercare attention went above and beyond normal expectations. I felt so looked after and cared for. Nothing I asked was glazed over or ignored which means a lot to someone like me. Simply the best and worth every cent.
