Dr. Hammond, founder of Partners in Plastic Surgery, published an article in the June edition of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) summarizing a 6 year clinical study he recently completed on Contour Profile Gel, or CPG, breast implants. These anatomically shaped implants are FDA approved as of July 2012 and will be released into the market. Because of his years of experience with this product Mentor, the producers of these American made implants, recently asked Dr. Hammond to host and teach at the first training session. Doctors from around the country were invited to Grand Rapids June 30th to observe Dr. Hammond during live surgery right here in our PIPS operating room, followed by a weekend of lectures and training. The event was a huge success and we look forward to many more!
