MemoryShape Breast Implants

Mentor has been making breast implants for more than 20 years for breast augmentation surgery as well as breast reconstruction. MemoryShape breast implants from Mentor have been accepted worldwide for over 10 years, and have now received the FDA’s approval in the US. These innovative, teardrop-shaped silicone gel-based implants are designed to provide a natural look and youthful firmness.

The gel core in MemoryShape implants is made with a highly cohesive gel, which allows them to retain shape. Unlike round-shaped implants, MemoryShape implants have a unique, tapered appearance. They are relatively thinner towards the top and slope gradually to a fuller projection point near the bottom of the implant. This allows them to mimic the silhouette of a natural breast.

One of the unique features of these implants is their SILTEX Texture, which is a gentle imprinting process designed to keep the implants in the right place. Board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Dean Jabs and Dr. Franklin Richards provide these implants to suitable candidates in Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and nearby areas.

MemoryGel Breast Implants

MemoryGel breast implants were approved by the FDA in 2006, and have continued to be a popular choice since then. These implants come in smooth and textured surface options and a variety of sizes and profiles to match the unique aesthetic needs of a patient. Each implant is filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel to hold it together uniformly and provide a natural feel that resembles the natural breast tissue. These implants have a set-fill volume to provide more customized outcomes.

Mentor Saline Breast Implants

These implants are filled with a saltwater solution that is similar to the natural body fluid. The implants are surgically inserted without the fluid and then filled during surgery to achieve the required size. The feel of these implants is slightly firmer as compared to gel-based implants. The flexibility of the fill volume allows for size adjustment during the procedure. Smooth and texture surface options along with three projection options are available in these implants.

Spectrum Adjustable Saline Breast Implant

The unique feature of these saline-filled implants is that their size can be adjusted post-operatively. This adjustable design is exclusive to Mentor. The surgeon can revise the size of the implant for up to six months after the breast augmentation procedure.

It takes a simple office procedure to add or remove saline volume and adjust the final implant size. Patients have an opportunity to try out the new implants for several weeks or months, and in case they find any discomfort, these implants will offer the scope for re-adjustment of size.
