From Plain to Playboy
As a young teen, Valerie had always hoped to develop a womanly figure with cleavage and naturally full, voluptuous breasts, instead of the small breasts that ran in her family. But by age 18, she was only a small A cup, a fact that constantly made her feel self-conscious. After seeing the impressive, natural-looking results both her mom and sister gained from breast augmentation at The Wall Center in Louisiana, she knew it was possible to have the body of her dreams even though nature had passed her by as well.
As soon as she was old enough, Valerie visited the same breast enhancement specialist that her mother and sister chose, Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. When she first entered the office, Valerie was warmly welcomed by the entire staff. "They treat you like they already know you," Valerie explained. "Right away I felt pretty calm because everyone was so friendly." Led by 4 board-certified plastic surgeons, the close-knit team at The Wall Center takes pride in treating each patient like they are part of the family.
Her Consultation and Procedure
Right away Valerie felt at ease with Dr. Wall Jr.'s friendly, unhurried personality. He asked her to describe her goals and took the time to really listen to what she told him. "I wanted to have cleavage, so I told Dr. Wall that I thought I should have the same size implants as my sister," said Valerie. "But Dr. Wall explained that everyone's body is unique and that my sister's size wouldn't look the same on me. To get the same fullness as my sister I would need implants sized specifically for my body." Valerie, at 5' 7" was taller than her sister and had fuller hips. Dr. Wall Jr. said that she'd need to go with a taller and larger implant for a more proportionate appearance and ample cleavage like her sister. Valerie agreed that an implant sized specifically for her body would be the right choice to give her the full, feminine look she wanted.
The day of surgery Valerie was put under general anesthesia, so she was asleep and comfortable through the whole procedure. For a full, natural breast contour, Dr. Wall placed saline implants under the chest muscles through small incisions hidden in the breast crease. "The scars were so tiny and healed so well, you couldn't even tell I had surgery," Valerie explained. Highly trained and experienced in breast enhancement surgery, Dr. Wall Jr. had the skill and the aesthetic eye to give Valerie the improvements she had always wanted.

New Confidence and Beauty
Valerie's enhanced breasts brought her all kinds of attention, and she began turning heads wherever she went. "It was a huge confidence builder," Valerie exclaimed. She was invited to pose for Playboy Magazine and became Miss September 2008 which included taking the spotlight as that month's centerfold. She moved to the Playmate House in Los Angeles for a summer and also appeared on the reality television series The Girls Next Door in seasons 4 and 5.
Living for months with the other girls from Playboy got Valerie thinking about having even larger breasts. Although she had been quite happy with her saline implants for several years, Valerie decided to have them replaced with modern gel implants. While Valerie chose to increase the size of her breasts with gel implants, many women choose gel implants to achieve a softer feel and a more natural breast appearance. Once Dr. Wall Jr. was confident she had given this change careful thought, he performed another successful procedure for Valerie.
After a quick and easy recovery, Valerie is happier than ever with her enhanced figure - having gone from a small D to a DD. She now has the striking figure she desired and increased confidence to go along with it. She aspires to advance her career as an actress and a glamour model, with the dream of posing for Playboy Magazine again, this time as the cover model.
Valerie's advice to other women considering breast augmentation is clear: "Make sure you research it really well. If it's something you'd like to do, there's nothing to be nervous about. The surgery is really easy and it's a big confidence booster."
