Mentor Breast Implants Give Women Another Alternative to Traditional Silicone and Saline
Women considering breast augmentation or breast reconstruction surgery now have another option when it comes to choosing the right breast implant. MemoryShape implants, which were formerly called Mentor’s CPG, have been approved for breast augmentation in women ages 22 and over and for women of all ages for reconstructive purposes.
What makes Mentor breast implants different from other options on the market? The silicone gel used in MemoryShape implants features more cross-linking. The term cross-linking refers to the bonds that connect a single silicone chain to another, which makes a silicone gel more firm and stable.
Advantages of MemoryShape Implants
MemoryShape implants from Mentor better match the natural shape of the breast, offering more fullness at the bottom and a teardrop shape that is tapered at the top. If the implant is cut in half it still keeps its shape, unlike traditional round implants. That is why this type of implant is often called “gummy bear implants.”
Since the MemoryShape implant is firmer, it is likely that there will be less wrinkling. There is also evidence that the implant’s texture can diminish the patient’s risk of developing a capsular contracture surrounding the implant.
