Yes, Allergan (Inamed) is one of the breast implant manufacturers.  They have a new silicone implant that has a fuller fill to reduce rippling.  If a patient requires this implant, we are able to obtain it through Health Canada approval.  It is a potentially great product for the right patient, however the implant cost is higher thus the surgical fee is $1000 on top of the regular breast augmentation fee.
