31 Y/o, A Cup(?), No Kids, Athletic/curvy Frame

I have chosen a doctor that 2 of my girlfriends have used and I agree with everything I was told prior to meeting him: Dr. Valnicek (aka Dr. V) is very personable and highly knowledgable, not to mention PATIENT. He spent a long period of time with me looking at the differences between different CC's and profiles, all using his awesome VECTRA machine. This machine takes photos of you from a few different angles, then using its extremely impressive software creates a 3D rendering of your torso that you can view from numerous angles with simulations of, for example, 500 CC high profile versus 500 CC moderate plus profile, either separately or overlaid atop one another to really see how ones projection might be greater versus the higher sitting fullness of the other. I found this tool to be FAR more helpful than sizers at figuring out what my end result will look like. During our initial visit I also mentioned to him I had/have a concern about feeling anxious post-op due to swelling of the chest area. Side note: I struggle with anxiety to varying degrees most days but 99.99% of the time deal with it mentally and do not take any sedatives (Ativan). I asked him if I would or should be prescribed with something stronger than Ativan, for a just in case of panic attack scenario. He steered me more so towards natural, drug-free alternatives like using Magnesium and a meditation app, in combination with my Ativan. While some might be disappointed at that response, I actually appreciate his "the less drugs--the better" approach, though he did say if I was not coping well he and his team would help me however they could afterwards (read: discuss alternative Rx at that time). I know I will get through any physical, mental or emotional discomfort regardless and that I will be happy with my decision to finally see this through!

Introduction - Kelowna, BC

Deep Breath.... My story if very similar to many I have read on here. I am a 42 years mama to 5 beautiful children. I breastfed them all a year or more. Needless to say I loved my nursing breasts, and was deflated when they would deflated a little more with each baby. I have been small breasted (34A/AA) all my life and was teased about it growing up and even into adulthood. It always bothered...

Here I Go at 54. Kelowna, BC

Have 19 year old saline under muscle. Pain after a fall 3 years ago so now time to remove. I'm ready except scared of recovery and potential problems. PS said will not remove capsules unless he determines necessity during procedure. No drains planned unless there is eccessive bleeding. Seems straightforward and hoping this is the case? I'll share as I go. Wish me luck please. Adding before...

Young, Tall Almost 5 Ft 11" 485cc Natrelle Inspira HP unders - Canada, CA

So a little background info about me. I am almost 5 ft 11", 139ish pounds, AA, BWD of 12.8. I have wanted larger breasts since I was a preteen. I had AA's and could not fill out a bra. I hoped and prayed that I would grow breasts as I got older. It never happened. I have always been a AA, sometimes a fuller AA. But always a AA nonetheless. I have researched this quite extensively and I know...

Dr. Valnicek and his entire staff made my entire breast augmentation process go so smoothly. The nurses are wonderful and nurturing, and his secretary Jen eased my mind and answered so many of my questions leading up to the big day. His work is beautiful and I am so happy I chose him as my PS.

5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

{ got my hourglass! } pre-op 32a/small b, *425cc HP, silicone, round, unders, crease*

I have been nothing but thoroughly impressed by Dr. Valnicek and his lovely staff. They were so patient and understanding with my many questions throughout the entire process. Very accommodating with the scheduling of surgery and appointments to fit my crazy schedule. Pre op instructions were very clear and concise. Dr. Valnicek has excellent "bedside manner", is very personable and comforting. He exhibits professionalism in all that he does and offers amazing advice - especially in regards to concerns about size! He is a true advocate for natural results and proportions, which I really appreciate. My post op nurse, Lorraine, was so sweet and endearing. She made me feel completely at ease during recovery and always made sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Valnicek and all of the staff at Okanagan Health Surgical Centre.
