5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants
Dr. Hall-Findlay is very knowledgeable and has written textbooks about breast augmentation. She's friendly and knows how to get exactly the look you're going for. At first I was worried that the size she suggested would be too small but she told me I would not look in proportion if I went any bigger and she was totally right. She always nicely evened out my differently sized pre-op breasts. They are nice and symmetrical now.

31 Years Old, Breast Fed 3 Kids, Saggy NO Muffin Top AAA Breasts with a Mild Tuberous Breast Deformity - Banff, AB
Dr. Hall-Findlay was my third consultation and last! I knew right away! The other two plastic surgeons wanted me to have a lift and go under the muscle (after having breastfed 3 babies I had saggy tripple A breast size with no muffin top at all) I was very nervous Dr. Hall-Findlay wanted to go over the muscle as I am very thin, broad shouldered and love to weight lift. I didn't want the "ball" look. But she told me it wouldn't be that way unless I was going to hike them up like Victoria beckham. She explained that since I had also a slightly tuberous breast deformity, that it would not be in my best interest to go under. I may end up with the double bubble deformity and would for sure end up with even more wider cleavage! There's just a way about her.... She's artistic.... So I told her to work her magic. WELL!!!! I am 3 weeks post opp and I feel GREAT!!! I only felt a bit sore the first 2 days! And even then, I kept trying to carry on with life and my kids! My husband kept trying to keep me resting but for me, not much takes me down lol. They look perfect! I've NEVER had nice looking breasts ever and I can truly say they are beautiful boobies lol. I also competed in a fitness competition prior to the operation and when the girls had to spray tan me naked, you could've heard a pin drop! I said "dang kids" to break the ice and that someday I wanted to get an augmentation. Both the girls said "you have to go to Banff!!! She does BEAUTIFUL boobies"!! They'd know! And they were right! Over the muscle ALL the way! Absolutely no ball look unless my hands are stretching behind my back or up behind my head (you only see that when naked....the ball look). But my cleavage looks 100% natural and I finally look completely proprtionate. I can't say 1 thing bad at all!!! I could go on forever about how awesome this whole thing was!! This was my fourth surgery (my wisdom teeth were impacted, I had severe varicose veins from pregnancies, and I broke my hand) and this was by far the easiest and best surgery involving going under. Brutal for only being 31! But just because I have 3 kids under the age of 6, does not mean I have to look it!!! Worth the saving, arguing with my husband about this, and the 2 days of healing (which were easier than the flu). It's honestly like you are engorged from the first couple days of breast feeding. I got 400ccs in both over the muscle and in a couple more weeks I'll get to know what my new bra size will be. I'm truly loving this and could not be any more thankful to Dr. Hall-Findlay and her staff about EVERYTHING!!! I would spend every cent and do this 10 times over again no problem if need be! I can't say enough good things about her! The surgery took a bit longer than an hr, and they took 3 hrs to bring me around, giving me meds and directions and gingerale....I am SO happy!!!!

Great consultation. Very warm and welcoming. Great bedside manner. Seems to have a sense of humor. A little behind on day of surgery but I was well taken care of. All of the staff were so wonderful. Absolutely great place to have chosen to have this done.
I met with Dr. Hall-Findlay and her team in December and made a commitment to myself that if I lost 20 lbs I was going to book a BL and BA. The time has come! Less than 2 weeks away and I have to admit I haven't been obsessing about this at all. I am very confident about the Hall-Findlay team and while I haven't been "under" in a long time I am not too nervous about that aspect either. The...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
Pre op photo & day 1 photo post op. 400cc cohesive gel above muscle implant with bi lateral lift. Week 1 done! I've seen changes all week & I'm loving the results so far!! Pain is only mild discomfort, similar of that to overdoing the chest fly work out. Breasts feel "normal". I have no pain, just a mild pull or tug feeling if I stretch too far. ;-) I am very pleased...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Ive always thought about having a breast reduction. Large breasts are definitely something that runs in the family. Growing up I was never proud of my well endowed chest. I was a C cup by grade 5. The teasing and bullying that ensued was unimaginable. Why would somebody taunt and tease someone for having a large chest? That answer is beyond me. By grade 9, I was sporting a lovely DD cup and I...
I'm 5'6", 120lbs. Married with no kids and no boobs. Always been skinny and just wants boobs! I'm tired of feeling like a 12 yr old boy and never having clothes fit me in top. I've always been really sporty and really active. I'm tired of wearing push-up sports bra and finally taking the plug after years of thinking of having a BA. I am planning on get 250-275cc over the muscle to get my...
Tummy tuck with diastasis recti repair, mastoplexy and augmentation coming up! I live at the gym, a (heavy) weightlifter and I just can't get my body where I need it to be. I haven't had my surgery yet, but it is happening really soon. I am so excited! I live in Canada and will be seeing a surgeon in my province for these procedures.

I'm a 40 year old active mom of two going for a revision of my 275CC saline implants that are currently under the muscle. I had the surgery done 20 years ago. All went well, my scars took a while to heal but no capsular contracture. The only problem now is that my right implant has been migrating under my armpit (not excessive but enough for me to find it annoying). I have recently been doing...
My practice is restricted to cosmetic breast and abdominoplasty surgery mainly because that is the part of plastic surgery that I love the most. I have modified the "lollipop" type of breast reduction and breast lift procedures and I am pleased to be asked to travel the world teaching.
