I did a lot of research on Calgary doctors before deciding to attend a consultation with Dr. Hamilton. His consultations are free of charge (this isn't why I picked him, but I thought I would note this) but he does book very far out. I called in December 2015 but he didn't have an opening until January 15th and that was because he had a cancellation. The consultation was great. Dr. Hamilton explained all of the different types of implants, pros and cons, and how the procedures work. He also took time to measure my breasts and conclude the style and size of implant that would be ideal. He never made me feel rushed or pressured. He gave me all of the pricing and some websites to take a look at before making the final decision. I went home and looked at everything he provided and I felt very comfortable going ahead with the surgery. I called his office the same day and booked my procedure for May 5th! He had dates in February and March also, but due to me finishing university, May was the perfect time! Dr. Hamilton does all of his surgeries out of the Peter Lougheed Hosptial. I felt comforted by this because I personally like the idea of being in a hospital in case - God forbid - anything went wrong. The only con with this aspect is that there is little to no privacy in the day surgery ward of this hospital. Just a giant row of beds separated by curtains. This didn't bother me a ton, but it's noteworthy for anyone who is shy or wants privacy. There truly is none. Dr. Hamilton did all of my markings right in my little curtain "room" along with the observation of a Doctor in training. Because of this there was some very open discussion about my breasts which I know my neighbours all heard. Again, nothing traumatizing by any means, but it may not be for someone who wants a more private experience. He was in and out within 3 mins. Very quick, very efficient. I have to say that if you're someone who wants hand-holding (not that there's anything wrong with it!) Dr. Hamilton may not be the best fit for you. He was thorough but it was all quite to the point. I went in for surgery, fell asleep within a few moments, and woke up in recovery. I was sent back to day surgery and was released a few hours later. I had a one week follow up with Dr. Hamilton in which he looked at my breasts, removed my stitches (which was fine by the way) and have me a "training bra". He basically cleared me for most things that day with the exception of arm and chest exercises for 6 weeks. The appointment was quick and painless! I got for another follow up in 3 weeks. Dr. Hamilton in a nutshell is a wonderful surgeon. He's low pressure and confident in the work he produces. It isn't a big production like I've heard from other surgeons (he doesn't carry sizers in office or use photo technology). His work speaks for itself and his confidence and wealth of knowledge/experience makes him amazing!

I went to the consultation and right away Dr Hamilton made me feel very comfortable. He started by listening to what I wanted to change, how I felt about everything and the reasons why I wanted a BA. I felt like he really listened to my concerns and what I did and didn't want from my BA. He said himself that he does not do the oversized "stripper" implants because a lot of times women in that industry can have unrealistic expectations or requests and they just don't look good. This gained my trust further! I definately didn't want to end up looking really huge or "fake". When I went back for my pre-op he let me ask the three pages of questions that I had prepared and didn't make me feel stupid at all. He was so friendly and respectful and really set my mind at ease that I had made the right choice. I am looking forward to getting my BA on Feb 12 and am thankful I have Dr Hamilton looking after me.

Post op of double eyelid surgery, too much skin was removed. My eyes won't close fully. Will it improve with time? (photos)
You had excess skin preop and you also had ptosis, the lids hang over the pupil. So at a glance it looks like your surgeon did an upper eyelid... READ MORE
