Mentor Breast Implants

The two main FDA and Health Canada-approved manufacturers  of breast implants are Allergan and Mentor; implants from both manufacturers are available at the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute. Allergan and Mentor have years of research experience and a high safety standard. A wide range of reliable and durable silicone and saline implants that vary by implant density, profile, shape and/or texture are available from each manufacturer with similar limited lifetime replacement warranties. During your Breast Augmentation consultation with Dr. Jugenburg, you will be shown breast implant size charts, look at and feel various pre-filled implant samples, and try on a range of sizers (differently sized implant samples).

The information provided below covers the implant options that are available from Mentor, and is intended to assist you in making a decision on which implant range is best for your Breast Augmentation.

Mentor Saline Breast Implants

Mentor’s saline breast implants come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, profiles and surface textures to fit the body, preference and individual needs of every woman. Each of Mentor’s saline implants has been thoroughly tested, is Health Canada approved for use in Breast Augmentation or for Breast Reconstruction, and is covered by Mentor’s Standard or Enhanced Advantage limited warranty and Lifetime Replacement Policy.

Breast Implant Sizes and Types

Mentor Round Saline Breast Implants

The most commonly used saline implant is a round, smooth implant. Mentor offers three different saline implant profiles with a rounded shape and smooth shell: Moderate, Moderate Plus and High Profile.

Style 1600: Smooth Round Moderate Profile
The most popular saline breast implant gives a full, rounded appearance that adds greater dimension to the breasts.

Style 2000: Smooth Round Moderate Plus Profile
Offers a full, rounded look that has the same moderate base as Style 1600, but with a higher profile that adds greater dimension to the breast.

Style 3000: Smooth Round High Profile
An extremely popular implant because it provides patients with greater projection for a more prominent profile in a narrower chest wall. Mentor designed this style and was the first company to offer an approved high profile implant.

Style 2600: SILTEXTM Moderate Profile Textured Implants
Gives the same full, rounded look, but instead with a textured SILTEXTM surface to the implant shell.

Mentor Shaped (Anatomic or Teardrop) Saline Breast Implants

Designed to mimic the gentle contours and fullness of a natural, mature breast, Mentor’s Shaped breast implants are available in two different implant profiles: High Profile and Moderate Profile.

Style 2700: CONTOUR PROFILE® High Profile
A Shaped implant with the teardrop appearance of a natural, mature breast, but with a high profile for greater projection and prominence.

Style 2900: CONTOUR PROFILE® Moderate Profile
The same teardrop shape, but with a wider base than Style 2700 to give a moderate projection in women with wider chest walls.

 

Mentor SPECTRUM® Saline (Post-Operatively Adjustable) Breast Implants

SPECTRUM® Implants from Mentor provide Plastic Surgeons with the only post-operatively adjustable saline breast implants, and are available in both Round and Shaped styles. These innovative implants allow Dr. Jugenburg to adjust the size of a patient’s implant (and therefore breast enlargement) through a removable fill tube for up to 6 months after the initial Breast Augmentation surgery. In a simple procedure, Dr. Jugenburg can add or remove saline to give the desired final appearance of the breasts.

Style 1400: Smooth Round SPECTRUM® Implants
Combines the popular rounded style of breast implants and a smooth surface shell with the ability to make adjustments to the implant size (and therefore breast size) after surgery.

Style 2400: SILTEXTM Round SPECTRUM® Implants
The same rounded profile and ability to be adjusted after surgery, but with a shell that has a textured SILTEXTM surface.

Style 2500: SILTEXTM CONTOUR PROFILE® SPECTRUM® Implants
Features a teardrop shape that resembles the appearance of a natural, full breast, the same ability to be adjusted following surgery, and a textured SILTEXTM shell surface.

Mentor Saline Implants Warranty Information

Mentor Cohesive Silicone Gel Breast Implants

content-16

Mentor silicone gel-filled breast implants have provided millions of women with the beautiful, natural Breast Augmentation results they seek for more than 20 years. Available in two distinct shapes, teardrop and round, Mentor silicone implants are widely chosen because of their safety, reliability and natural feel.

The Mentor MemoryGel® Round implants implants have the popular rounded look and once positioned optimally, add a natural fullness to the breast. MemoryGel® implants are available in a wide selection of consistencies from soft (Cohesive ITM) to firm (Cohesive IIITM). The Mentor Memory ShapeTM implants gently slope to a fuller projection point near the implant’s bottom, mimicking the teardrop shape of a natural, mature breast.

Each of Mentor’s silicone implants has been extensively researched and tested, is Health Canada approved for use in Breast Augmentation or for Breast Reconstruction, and is covered by Mentor’s Premier Advantage limited warranty and Lifetime Replacement Policy.

Breast Implant Sizes and Types

To fit women of all different shapes and give your breasts the look and feel you desire, Mentor MemoryGel® and MemoryShapeTM breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes with either a smooth or textured (SILTEX®) surface, and in four different profile levels: Moderate Classic, Moderate Plus, High Profile and Ultra High Profile.

Moderate Classic Profile

Provides standard projection from the chest with a wider base width.

Moderate Plus Profile

Offers a higher projection than the Moderate Classic Profile with a moderate base width.

High Profile

An even higher projection than the Moderate Plus Profile for patients with a narrower chest wall who want more prominent breasts.

Ultra High Profile

The highest projection available, with the narrowest base width.

Mentor Cohesive Silicone Gel Breast Implant Safety

MemoryGel® and MemoryShapeTM breast implants are pre-filled with the latest (third) generation cohesive silicone gel. This uniquely formulated substance is a viscous solid that holds safely and uniformly together to give predictable results and a pliable consistency that closely matches that of natural breast tissue.

The amount of silicone released through the shell of MemoryGel® and MemoryShapeTM breast implants (known as silicone gel bleed) is minimal and associated with no risk for patients. Silicone gel bleed  is:

  1. Less than 1/1000th the weight of a pin.
  2. More than a million times less than established safety limits (based on the results of FDA reviewed studies).
  3. More than a hundred times less than the amount of silicone absorbed from daily exposure to common consumer products containing silicone, such as antiperspirants, skin lotions and hair care products.

Breast Implant Rupture

The cohesive, gelatin-like silicone gel formulation in MemoryGel® and MemoryShapeTM breast implants behaves as more of a solid than a liquid, and will maintain its shape uniformly even if cut entirely in half. Mentor’s adherence to strict design requirements further boosts patient safety by enhancing the silicone shell’s strength, elasticity and resilience, thereby producing silicone shells that are less likely to rupture than in other silicone implants.

On-Going Clinical Studies

Mentor is committed to providing objective, clinical information on breast implant safety
to further reinforce its commitment to safety. Currently, over 200,000 women have participated in numerous on-going clinical studies that are designed to demonstrate the long term safety and effectiveness of the latest generation of silicone-filled breast implants.
