Vancouver Breast Augmentation
David Ward, MD
Dr. David Ward is a Vancouver breast augmentation specialist who is highly regarded for his skill and experience in helping women achieve fuller, more voluptuous bust lines. He offers his patients from Vancouver and across Canada a wide range of breast implants sizes and shapes, so that each patient can achieve the look they desire. Please read the paragraphs below to learn more about this procedure. Also, visit the breast augmentation gallery to see results for his Vancouver and Canada breast augmentation / breast implants patients.
What is a Breast Enlargement (Augmentation)?
Breast augmentation can enhance the size of the breast as well as give you a better proportioned figure. A moderate degree of sagging can be solved with a breast augmentation.
Breast asymmetry, where one breast does not perhaps develop to the same size as the other, can also be addressed with breast augmentation.
This is our most commonly done procedure. Dr. Ward has become known as the breast surgery specialist in the area, being called upon to do major breast reconstruction for women who have lost their breast to cancer. Breast reconstruction is of course much more involved than a simple breast augmentation, but it gives you some idea of Dr. Ward’s skill and reputation.
Dr. Ward is now offering cohesive silicone gel breast implants.
In 1992, the US FDA decided that silicone gel-filled implants would not be generally available for cosmetic breast enlargement. Currently, all women in the USA undergoing breast augmentation receive saline-filled implants which consist of a silicone shell filled with sterile saltwater.
Recently, new cohesive silicone gel implants became available in Canada. Health Canada has determined that cohesive silicone gel implants are safe for use because the cohesive gel does not seep, run or shift. Silicone gel implants give a more natural appearance than saline implants: they feel and move like real breast tissue. Cohesive silicone gel implants do not normally ripple or fold as saline implants sometimes do. Silicone gel implants have been available in Europe for several years and have an excellent safety record. If you prefer to receive cohesive gel silicone implants rather than saline implants, please discuss this with Dr. Ward during your consultation.
Liposuction – Vancouver Specialist
Dr. David Ward
Dr. David Ward is one of the most sought after Vancouver liposuction specialists. He encourages potential patients to read the information below and visit the liposuction galleryto learn more about how this procedure has helped create a new body profile for Vancouver liposuction patients.
What is Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction?
If you have body contours you would like to change, this procedure may be of interest to you. Fat is removed from under the skin using the Ultrasonic technique. Some areas that liposuction may be of assistance- under the chin, upper arms, breasts, male chest, trunk, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks and inner knees.
The use of the Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL) allows safer removal of larger amounts of fat than with standard liposuction. The ultrasound helps liquefy the fat leading to less movement of the wand under the skin. To the patient this means less bruising and swelling and less recovery time.
This is considered a permanent change in a patient’s figure and is especially helpful for areas that will not respond to diet and exercise.

What is a Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?
