Choosing the Best Body Contouring Procedure

We’ve learned that our ideal weight depends on our body frame. So, if you’re 5’, your body shape would be significantly different than a person measuring 5’10”. The concept of a height-to-weight ratio isn’t perfect. You can be happy with the number on the scale, but still disappointed when you look in the mirror. 

At Pugash Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery in Vancouver, Dr. Pugash helps his patients feel great about their figures. In general, women tend to look at the entire body. This simplified approach only meets one criterion, though. Here, we discuss ways to decide how you might get the best results from body contouring treatment.

What Area Needs Help?

This question may be the best to begin the body contouring process. For most women, especially mothers, the breasts and abdomen are the two most critical areas to correct. Specific surgeries can treat these effectively. Dr. Pugash offers multiple procedures, including the following. 

Breast Augmentation

Perhaps no area on a woman’s body affects her femininity more than her breasts. When age, genetics, or childbearing leaves the breasts smaller than desired, a breast augmentation can restore volume through implants. This aesthetic surgery is a tailored approach to help you achieve or restore the breast volume you always wanted. If breast location is also an issue, a breast lift can help. 

Breast Lift

The natural aging process and pregnancy may leave a woman with droopy breasts. A breast lift can restore breast support by removing excess skin and tissue and reinforcing the breast wall. The results are youthful breasts with that sensual upward curve. 

If breast volume and droop are both concerns, a breast lift with implants combines these two breast surgeries to address both issues. 

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck reinforces the abdominal wall while removing excess skin and fat. This procedure restores youthful tummy contours to the midsection to help achieve a sleek, slender abdomen. 

Mommy Makeover

When the breasts and abdomen both need contouring, especially after having children, a mommy makeover can combine multiple operations into one surgery for comprehensive body improvement. The most common procedures to include in a mommy makeover are breast surgery and tummy tuck.
