MemoryGel® Silicone Breast Implants
If you are considering breast augmentation and want to make sure you get results that look and feel as natural as possible, Mentor's MemoryGel® breast implants may be the right choice for you. MemoryGel breast implants are filled with Mentor's proprietary cohesive silicone gel. Although MemoryGel breast implants are initially more expensive than their saline counterparts, the improved cosmetic results, enduring good results, and outstanding warranty make these safe, FDA-approved breast implants the best choice for women whose primary concern is the quality of their results from breast augmentation.
There are many factors in making your breast implant decision. Broadway Center for Plastic Surgery provides the general information on this page to help you understand the decision, but the best way to determine which implant is right for you is with a personal consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Please call or email us today to discuss this decision with Denver plastic surgeon Dr. David Broadway.
Advantages of MemoryGel Breast Implants
For women looking for natural-looking breast augmentation results, Mentor's MemoryGel silicone breast implants have many key advantages:
- Look and feel more like natural breast tissue (compared to saline breast implants)
- Less likely to experience rippling or implant edge visibility
- Less likely to rupture than saline breast implants
- Covered by outstanding Mentor Breast Implant Warranty
These advantages make Mentor's MemoryGel breast implant the best choice for women who are looking for long-term quality breast augmentation results. In particular, MemoryGel breast implants are recommended for women who:
- Are considering subglandular (over-the-muscle) placement
- Have little natural breast tissue
If long-lasting results that look and feel natural are your primary concern, then MemoryGel breast implants are recommended.
Disadvantages of MemoryGel Breast Implants
Although they are a good, safe breast implant alternative, MemoryGel breast implants are not for everyone. They do have some disadvantages which include:
- Initially more expensive
- Require a longer incision (approximately 1.5 inches compared to 1 inch for saline breast implants)
- Cannot be inserted with transaxillary breast augmentation incision
Deciding whether MemoryGel or saline breast implants are right for your breast augmentation depends on weighing the importance of these advantages and disadvantages for you, which you can do during your consultation.
