5 out of 5 stars Facelift

A Positive and Life-altering Experience - Vancouver, BC

I had been hearing and reading about the prestigious False Creek Surgical Centre for many years; but required a surgeon closer to my home. When I found Dr. Pugash through a Google search and read that not only did he have a clinic in my area - but that he was, in fact, one of the FCSC surgeons ... my search was over. Not only did Dr. Pugash give me this gorgeous face; with it came the confidence, drive and determination to meet ... and exceed ... my weight-loss goal. Dr. Pugash made me look decades younger and completely natural. I think of him and thank him every time I look in the mirror. The thoughfulness and courtesy of his whole team is disarming; one is truly made to feel like a member of a caring family. I can most certainly recommend Dr. Pugash; his professional, capable manner inspire complete confidence. His skills as a surgeon are evident in the results. I envy anyone going to see him for the first time and I very much look forward to having another procedure with him in the near future.

Best Doctor....I Have Confidence Again Because of Dr.Pugash! - Vancouver, BC

I've never written a review before but am so beyond pleased with the incredible work Dr.Pugash did that I feel like others need to hear my input. This post is being written from someone that has had 3 past breast augmentations and revisions from different doctors and been more and more self conscious with each one until Dr.Pugash did what no one else could and fixed my previous botched jobs. Dr.Pugash is honest, patient, meticulous and most importantly he actually cares about his patients. I'm getting married this year and finally feel confident in my own skin because of him. His staff are equally as valuable and are very easy to deal with. Thank you Dr.pugash and all the staff by his side!!

Incredibly Talented Doctor - Couldn't Be Happier! - Vancouver, BC

In May of 2012, Dr. Pugash performed my Breast Augmentation surgery. I tirelessly researched Doctors and their facilities. I had two girlfriends that had gone to Dr. Pugash and while both loved their results, one said he was friendly and wonderful and the other commented that he wasn't overly friendly in their interactions. From the "Before and After" photos and my research, I went for my first consultation with him. I found him to be friendly, incredibly informative..but most importantly straightforward. I wasn't there to make a best friend...I was there for his skills and his talent and his reputation. He was respectful and I felt so confident in him that I booked my surgery that week. The surgery facility in False Creek is indeed top notch, the people on his team are kind and warm. I could not be happier with the outcome. Zero complications, perfect symmetry and minimal scarring even after only 2 months. There's no question in my mind, he is amazing!

Exceptional Surgeon Who Does Beautiful Work - New Westminster, BC

I had breast implants with Dr. Pugash in March of 2012. I have two friends who have had implants/breast lift with him and both recommended Dr. Pugash as a perfectionist with an excellent reputation for his work amongst his peers. My consultations were thorough and he was on time. Everything about my surgery, recovery and results have been absolutely perfect. The staff at the surgery day were professional and extremely kind. The facilities were top notch and the after care was excellent. My breasts are stunning and completely free of complications and the decision to have the augmentation with Dr. Pugash was the best. I only wish I had done it sooner.

Facelift and Chin Augmentation Surgery - New Westminster, BC

Dr. Pugash was very informative and I felt totally comfortable with him and what he proposed. I arranged to undergo facelift and chin augmentation surgery soon thereafter. I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Pugash for his meticulous work in giving me back my confidence. The result is more than I had ever hoped for! Thank you so much Dr. Pugash and his staff for their professionalism and competent care. I would highly recommend Dr. Pugash for any cosmetic surgery you may wish to undergo - he is a truly gifted surgeon!

Great Doctor - New Westminster, BC

I had my breast augmentation with Dr.Pugash, it was a scary experience for me to be going through, but Dr. Pugash and his staff were amazing! They answered all the questions I had, and I had a lot of them. Being a out of town client, they answered all my questions and concerns, and made the procedure a pleasant experience. From the consultation, to the surgery, to the questions after the surgery, they were great! Dr. Pugash was a great surgeon to work with, very experiences and knowlegdable.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Happy, Happy , Happy - New Westminster, BC

For 4 years I have wanted a Tummy Tuck. After 2 children, some weight gain my stomach area was stetched and over time began to fall. I hike 5 to 10 k per day, weight lift, but could not shrink by tummy. I sought out 3 different consults and my choice was Dr. P and his team on the basis of his calm and soothing demure, confidence and professionalism. In addition his postive responsiveness...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Breast and Abdominal Surgery - New Westminster, BC

I highly recommend Dr. P to anyone seeking cosmetic surgery. From my initial telephone call enquiring about breast surgery and tummy tuck, consultation visit to meet with Dr. P, surgery and recovery, I was totally satisfed and cared for throughout the whole process. Dr. P was most professional, respectful, and attentive to my needs throughout the whole process. I felt very comfortable going into surgery - I was very prepared. Today, three months later, I am 100% pleased with my results of the breast augmentation/mastopexies with abdominoplasty and liposuction surgery - results exceeded my expectations. My breasts feel and look very natural and I am thankful I went with the size Dr. P suggested - they are perfect! My abdomen is great and I actually have a new belly button. Thank you so much Dr. P and staff for your kindness, professionalism, knowledge, and caring attitude.
