At MYA we are committed to the provision of first class products and services for our patients. For this reason, we principally use Mentor Breast Implants. Mentor is part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, recognised as one of the world’s most trusted companies. Mentor is #1 worldwide leader in breast aesthetics and the leading manufacturer of implants for both breast reconstruction and augmentation. With over 40 years experience in making implants and a 98% patient satisfaction rate, MYA have chosen Mentor implants for its outstanding and trustworthy reputation.
Mentor Silicone Gels are cohesive polymers – soft and fluid in feeling but the gel acts as a unit. The gel holds together uniformly while retaining the natural “give” of breast tissue. It does this because of a cohesive, gelatin- like substance that acts as a solid rather than a liquid maintaining its shape. Mentor have an extensive range of implants with more than 1,000 options which ensures the right fit for the right patient. Although every cosmetic procedure carries inherent risk, Mentor offers one of the most comprehensive breast implant warranties available, the Patient Care Promise (Mentor Warranty Tab) and their products are associated with low rates of complications. Mentor also commissioned seven long-term breast implant studies in progress with over 200,000 patients enrolled to establish long-term safety and efficacy. This shows consistency and assurance for MYA patients of the quality of Mentor.
Two types of Mentor MemoryGel round breast implants:
- Cohesive I – the softest feeling gel
- Cohesive II – slightly firmer
