Dr. George D. Hamilton on Breast Implant
Dr Hamilton uses almost exclusively the most current, state of the art breast implants. These are fourth and fifth generation cohesive silicone gel breast implants-Natrelle, made by Allergan. These are currently the best technology in breast implants available. The fifth generation implants are available to Canadian women, European and Scandinavian women. This generation of cohesive silicone gel implants are form stable. That is, they maintain their shape and form when in the vertical position under the breast or breast-muscle. They are textured, therefore ere not only form stable but position stable as well. Unlike the smooth shell saline or smooth shell silicone gel implants which can migrate downward with time, these new generation implants maintain their position beneath the breast mound, giving the patient long term continued upper pole breast fullness. This gives the patient a beautiful, soft and long lasting medial breast fullness and cleavage.
Smooth shell saline implants have their place but the problems of rippling, buckling and unpredictable deflation have been problematic over the years. In thinner patients here is also the persistent problem of the salt water bag under breast feel. Even the smooth shell silicone implants have the potential problem of rippling and buckling.

The safety of silicone gel breast implants has vastly improved over the past decade. The problems of potential leaking and migration of the silicone gel has been overcome by more cross linking of the gel creating a so called gummy bear texture which cannot migrate. Also the silicon polymer shells, biologically inert to begin with, are thicker, more durable an d less permeable than previous generations.
Whether a breast augmentation alone, or in combination with a breast lift, the current generation of textured cohesive silicone gel breast implants offers Canadian women a more superior result than previous generations of implants. The result is a beautiful, soft and aesthetic breast enhancement, that not only maintains its shape but is long lasting and safer as well.
