What do I need to know about saline breast implants?
Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. Saline implants are inserted without fluid. Once placed, the implant is filled to the predetermined size. When the fill-tube is removed, the implant will automatically seal itself. Mentor’s saline implants can have a textured or smooth surface shell and are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and profiles to fit your body - each with a revolutionary self-sealing valve. Mentor’s saline breast implants are currently the only saline breast implants that are made in the USA.
Saline Round Breast Implants
Mentor’s round saline implants are available in 3 profiles: moderate, moderate plus, and high profile. Mentor was the first company to offer an approved high profile saline implant.
Shaped Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants that feature a contoured shape recreating the somewhat teardrop outline of a mature breast. Shaped breast implants are often preferred by women who are looking for a gently sloping breast silhouette. CONTOUR PROFILE® Saline Breast Implants are available in a moderate or high profile.
