When you’re thinking about breast surgery, from the size, shape and even the brand of your chosen implants, there’s so much to consider and a whole range of different options.
At The Hospital Group, we’ve made the decision easier by partnering only with leading suppliers of the safest breast implants on the market, Motiva and Mentor. Here’s our easy guide on everything you need to know about choosing Mentor implants:
We are proud to offer Mentor breast implants - part of the global Johnson & Johnson group, Mentor has over 40 years’ experience in breast implants, helping women all over the world get the look they want. During that time, it has earned an excellent reputation for quality and patient satisfaction.
They provide two breast implant options which both come in a range of sizes and shapes to fit your specific needs. The two types of breasts implants Mentor provide are:
1. MemoryGel implants which are shaped like round breast tissue
2. MemoryShape implants which are teardrop-shaped and made of proprietary gel which is often thought of as giving a more natural look.
When you choose Mentor implants for your breast enlargement you will benefit from:
When you choose Mentor implants, you are automatically enrolled in their warranty guarantee – one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry. This includes a lifetime product replacement for confirmed rupture and up to €1000 (£850) towards surgical costs for capsular contracture (Baker III/IV), double capsule or late-stage Seroma.
Absolutely! Mentor MemoryGel breast implants are approved by the United States’ Food and Drug Administration, plus primary breast enlargement patients have reported a 97% satisfaction rate*.
Here at The Hospital Group, our cosmetic surgeons would recommend having your Mentor implants replaced anywhere between 10 to 20 years after the original procedure, but the specific lifespan of your implants will vary from person and person.
On average, breast implants, in general, tend to need replacing after around 10 years and their longevity can be dependent on factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight gain.
