5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Over the past 25 years I've had various procedures with a few different Plastic Surgeons. I had a Rhinoplasty procedure with Dr.Lorne Brown of Richmond, BC when I was in my late twenties. Pleased with the outcome, I later went back to him in my early thirties for a mini tummy tuck & lipo suction of my waist, hips & thighs. The lipo was amazing but the tummy tuck turned out disastrous! There were irregularities of the skin and the procedure was VERY painful! I was so embarrassed...I hid my lower abdominals for over twenty years. Not long after that I did a breast augmentation by Dr.Reed. He used saline implants placed over the muscle. I went for a full B cup. As time passed, I went on to have lipo suction of my arms & waist with Dr.Stan M. Valnicek. He was good but I can't say I was over-joyed with the results! Just before turning 50, I knew that it was time to get a neck-lift...I finally booked with Dr.Peterson! All I can say is WOW! The work he did was the absolute BEST! He paid attention to the smallest details~he even did a fat transfer on my tear toughs! Dr.Peterson is courteous, listens well and is very pleasant! No question goes unanswered. Sooo....that was 4 years ago. In 5 weeks time, Dr.Peterson will be removing my aging old saline implants, giving me a lift and returning me back to a smaller cup size! He will liposuction my armpits and where-ever else that is needed. He'll go onto fixing Dr.L Browns messy mini-tummy tuck that I've hid for all these years! I highly recommend Dr.Peterson and I'll be more than happy to keep everyone updated as I move through this upcoming procedure that is scheduled for September 26th, 2014. Dated October 10th, 14 Days Post Surgery: How to describe Dr.Peterson? I'd say...what "Chef Ramsey's" is to cooking...is what "Dr.Peterson" is to Plastic Surgery! Once in the operating room, he's very intuitive and has a great sense of what would work at what wouldn't! I'm VERY pleased to say (and I really don't know how he did it, but he did) corrected a very BAD mini tuck that was performed years ago by another surgeon. Dr.Peterson originally thought I might need a vertical incision for my TT, however with his expertise and skillful hands he was able to do an incredibly tight and smooth full TT! He did an upper muscle repair and created a NEW belly button for me. He skillfully shaped my abdominal area with lipo suction. The full anchor breast lift & augmentation was amazing! He easily removed my BIG droopy Saline implants and replaced them with Smooth Round Moderate Plus Profile Gel Implants under the muscle. The incisions were placed with much precision and careful thought. He went on to lipo axillary arm-pit fat and also corrected one botched arm-pit where a previous P/S had tried to lipo the area, however he failed at it...and left a hole in my armpit! Once again....Dr.Peterson corrected this! Once the surgery was completed, Dr.Peterson visited me and briefly discussed the successful outcome...I was overjoyed! The Aftercare I've received was simply OUTSTANDING! I was called every day for the 1st 10 days to give a full report of my progress. My 1st follow-up & aftercare appointment was 11 Days after surgery. I arrived 30 minutes early and I only had time to use the restroom and I was ushered quickly to proceed to see Dr.Peterson! My teri strips & drain were removed. Dr.Peterson was in the room moments later~reviewed my before photo's and proceeded to explain in detail how he was able to do my surgery. He then went on to check all my incisions, and palpated my surgery sites. I was impressed and he made me feel VERY confident in my progress. The Staff are very amazing and very courteous at all times. I highly recommend Dr.Brian Peterson for any procedure that you maybe considering! He has aced my: Neck Lift Full Tummy Tuck Breast Lift/Augmentation and Lipo Thank You once again Dr.Peterson for changing my body image and confidence!
So far it has been great, the nurses are fantastic, so informative. They really seem to know there stuff! I was very comfortable during my appointments. The only complaints I have are that I am not being supplied a post surgical bra for recovery, with the amount I'm spending I would think I would be given a bra ESPECIALLY since i have been told by my PS it is important I wear one for the first few months during my healing process, 24/7. But that's ok I just ordered one online. The nurses are fantastic, very smart and they really make you feel very comfortable and make sure you are happy with your decisions and don't have any more questions.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Peterson has over 20 years experience, is kind, funny and professional and has great staff. The pre-op appointments were smooth and very helpful and put me at ease. The actual day of surgery went well, was organized and 'quick.' The recovery was better and quicker than I thought it would be. The post-op appointments (I had two, spaced three months apart) were very cool, and I left with a 'bounce in my step, I was so pleased all is well. I showed Dr. Peterson the bra that has been a 'life-saver' for me...'Coobie Seamless' bras are comfy and easy to order. Dr. Peterson and his staff are very professional and kind and patient! I am 6 months post op today (Dec 17th-June 17th) and I am very happy with my decision to finally have this done, only regret is not being able to have done it sooner! (-: I feel more confident socially, sexually, mentally, emotionally. I actually feel good/comfortable being in a bathing suit and little t-shirts, etc. I don't spend too much time on this site anymore. I am very happy to have had the special people in my life to communicate with...fears, excitement, the day of the surgery and recovery support, and highly recommend the use of this site, and if you are in BC and want a BA...I highly recommend Dr. Peterson (-: Thanx all, and once again...HUGS!
