Successfully used for over 20 years in millions of women all over the world. Why do women love MENTOR® MemoryGel® Implants? Our implants feel more like natural breast tissue and are safe and reliable.
After decades of research and testing, MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants were FDA approved for women in the US in 2006 - an important advancement in the field of breast augmentation. MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants come in either a textured or smooth surface shell and are available in a wide range of sizes and profiles to fit your body. MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants are the only silicone breast implants that are made in America
MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants
MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants contain the latest generation of silicone. They are pre-filled with Mentor’s uniquely formulated silicone gel. This gel is not like a liquid or a semi-liquid but is a cohesive gel that holds safely and uniformly together to deliver a natural feel that closely resembles breast tissue.
We have cut a MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implant in half to demonstrate how the gel material holds together uniformly. The uniquely formulated silicone gel in MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants is a cohesive, gelatin-like substance that acts as a solid rather than a liquid thereby maintaining its shape. Mentor’s adherence to design requirements has resulted in silicone shells that have been tested and shown to possess excellent strength, resilience and elasticity.
The amount of silicone material released from Silicone Breast Implants is extremely minimal. It is less than is absorbed from daily consumer products containing silicone.
- Equal to approximately 1/1000th the weight of the head of a straight pin
- More than a million fold below established safety limits, based on the results of studies presented to the FDA.
- More than a hundred-fold below absorbed daily exposures to the same materials from commonly used consumer products, such as antiperspirants, skin care lotions and hair care products.
