Among various qualities in silicone breast implants available today, one of the most innovative and advanced qualities is MemoryShape breast implants from Mentor. A leading provider of these implants is Cosmetic Surgery Associates. Operating out of offices in McLean VA and Bethesda MD, the practice provides Mentor MemoryShape breast implants and other qualities to patients in Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and nearby areas.

Highly Cohesive Implants

MemoryShape implants have been available worldwide for over 10 years, and have now been approved by the FDA. Board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Dean Jabs and Dr. Franklin Richards provide these implants to suitable candidates for breast implant surgery. These teardrop-shaped implants are designed to provide a natural look and youthful firmness to the breasts.

The core of MemoryShape implants is filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel, which makes them retain shape and firmness. It also ensures that the touch and feel of the implants closely match that of the natural breast tissue. Unlike round implants, these teardrop-shaped implants also match the natural silhouette of a breast.

Another key feature of MemoryShape implants is their SILTEX texture. This texture is a result of a gentle imprinting process designed to keep the implants in their place. The patient satisfaction rate for breast augmentation surgery with MemoryShape implants is about 97%, according to estimates. The implants come with the Mentor and Mentor Enhanced Warranty.

Profiles to Suit All Patients

The following profile types are available in MemoryShape breast implants to match the aesthetic needs of every patient:

Tall height, moderate profile

Women with a tall high will typically desire a significant breast height. This profile may be more suited to their needs.

Low height, moderate plus profile

Women with a relatively shorter height will usually need a lower breast height and may choose this profile.

Medium height, moderate profile

This profile may be chosen by patients with medium height but requiring a slightly lesser breast projection.

Medium height, moderate plus profile

Women who are of average height and weight may be recommended this implant profile by the plastic surgeon.

Medium height, high profile

Some women may desire a higher projection even though they are of a medium height. Their needs may be best served by this profile.

The FDA has approved Mentor’s MemoryShape breast implants for women who are in the age group of 22 years or above. However, the age restriction does not apply to women undergoing breast reconstruction. Cosmetic Surgery Associates receives patients from Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding locations for these implants.

Firmer Implants

Many women prefer breast implants to have significant firmness so that they do not lose shape easily. This can be a limitation with round-shaped implants in some cases. Therefore, MemoryShape breast implants with a natural-looking teardrop shape are preferred by such candidates. The higher degree of cohesiveness of the silicone gel, as compared to regular silicone implants, also ensures that the implant retains firmness and shape.
