Mentor Implants Information (2022)

Company Summary

Mentor is a leading American global medical device company involved in the manufacture of a number of products that have applications ranging from the treatment of stress incontinence in women, to erectile dysfuntion in men and facial aesthetic dermal filler and botulinum toxin products.

Mentor are also one of two market leading, global manufacturers of silicone and saline breast implants and have been manufacturing and distributing them worldwide for over 30 years.


Implant Types and Sizes

Implants are available from Mentor with both smooth and Siltex® textured outer shells and in a variety of different profiles and sizes, as well as in round or anatomical contoured styles.

Contoured or ‘tear drop’ implants and round implants are available in a variety of shapes according to two differing parameters, known as implant height and implant profile or projection. The height refers to the size and shape of the implant footprint, i.e. the section that sits against the chest itself once implanted. This choice will vary according to how wide or narrow your chest is. The profile or projection refers to how far outwards the ‘drop’ on the tear comes away from the chest, as a natural breast would or how far forward the round implant projects. The actual cup size or volume can then be decided on once the anatomical shape has been established.


Saline Breast Implants

Mentor’s saline-filled breast implants are filled with a saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. Each breast implant has a self-sealing valve used to fill the device during surgery.


Saline Round Breast Implants

Mentor Implants Information (1)


Smooth Round Moderate Profile

Style 1600

Their most popular saline-filled breast implant style for over 30 years. A full, rounded look that adds greater dimension to the breast.


Smooth Round Moderate Plus Profile

Style 2000

A full, rounded look that adds greater dimension to the breast. Moderate base, with a higher profile than the Style 1600 implant.


Smooth Round High Profile

Style 3000

This breast implant style has become extremely popular because it provides greater projection for a more prominent profile in a narrower chest wall.

Style 2500

The advantages of Spectrum® postoperative adjustability, with a teardrop shape that more closely parallels the outline of a mature breast. This breast implant style features a textured shell surface.


Spectra® Adjustable Breast Implants For Asymmetry

Mentor has developed their unique Spectra® range to address the problem of moderate asymmetry. Their round implant is designed on the principle of a bag-within-a-bag, whereby an outer textured silicone casing holds an adjustable inner chamber which is filled with a saline solution via a self-sealing valve system and tubing. This enables the surgeon to alter the volume of each implant individually during the operation until the desired level of symmetry is obtained, at which point the tubing is removed.

This system differs from a traditional single shell saline implant as the outer silicone casing comes in a variety of densities with a differing size inner vessel for saline inclusion. This gives the implants more of the natural breast mimicking qualities of cohesive silicone gel implants but with the added adjustability created by the addition of saline within to correct any asymmetries.

Silicone Breast Implants

Mentor Implants Information (10)All of Mentor’s silicone gel implants are made from an outer silicone shell and an inner cohesive silicone gel filling (know as their proprietary MemoryGel™), which means that the gel filler acts as a solid, rather than a liquid, and cannot leak, whilst still retaining a natural feel that is said to better resemble actual breast tissue. Mentor produces a wide selection of consistencies to its MemoryGel™ from soft (Cohesive I™) to firm (Cohesive III™).

This advancement in silicone technology has yet further increased the safety rating of silicone implants, compared to earlier more liquid developments.

You are being asked to participate in the Mentor Silicone Gel-Filled Mammary Prosthesis Clinical Study.. You may benefit other women by providing information about possible health problems associated with breast implants and to help demonstrate the safety of the device.. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks such as:. Breast Implants have certain specific risks and complications which may include:. Plastic surgeons usually recommend removal of the implant if it has ruptured, even if the silicone is still enclosed within the scar tissue capsule, because the silicone gel may eventually leak into surrounding tissues.. FDA completed a retrospective study on rupture of silicone gel-filled breast implants.. Of the 687 implants in the study, at least two of the three study radiologists agreed that 378 implants were ruptured (55%).. While this pain normally subsides in most women as they heal after surgery, it can become a chronic problem in other women.. This may prevent wound healing and require surgical correction and/or implant removal.. There are several alternative procedures to breast reconstruction with silicone gel-filled breast implants.

The FDA noted that the Mentor Corps' data on silicone breast implants failed to show that the implants were safe and raised questions about effectiveness.

The Core Study, the primary clinical trial that Mentor provided to the FDA in support of FDA approval, includes only one of the implant shapes, and therefore only two of the six implant styles.. FDA thus recommended that manufacturers provide data on the “rate and rate of change of rupture over the expected lifetime of the device.” At the hearing, Mentor’s consultants estimated that the lifetime of their silicone gel breast implants is 25-47 years, which is much longer than previous implants have been found to last.. No one knows the exact health consequences of implant rupture, although it is known that silicone leaks from some ruptured implants.. Inamed analyzed local complications among a small number of patients with confirmed ruptured implants, compared to patients with confirmed intact implants.9 These data are presented below since Mentor data were so short-term that they were not able to present this type of analysis.. Danish data submitted by the implant manufacturers show that women with ruptured implants are twice as likely to report non-serious pain in the affected breast compared to women with intact implants, and are six times more likely to report breast hardness.. In addition, women with extracapsular rupture (where the silicone has leaked outside the immediate area of the implant) are 3 times more likely to report a connective tissue disease, 2 times more likely to report pleuritis, and 1.7 times more likely to report than women with intact implants, although these numbers were not statistically significant.10. Mentor’s Core Study indicated that after only two years, 25% of reconstruction patients, 12% of augmentation patients, and 26% of revision patients can expect to undergo a second surgery related to their implants .. It is clear that breast implants increase breast size, but plastic surgeons and implant makers also claim that breast implants help women feel better about themselves and their lives.. With respect to augmentation patients, the FDA found that “the literature does not provide strong scientific support that breast implants have measurable psychological and psychosocial benefits. . .” For reconstruction patients, the FDA concluded that “literature that adequately evaluates the short-term or long-term psychological or psychosocial benefits of breast implants .. This is true whether the patients chose implants after mastectomy, or for augmentation, and whether they were getting breast implants for the first time or to replace problem implants.. Although the health effects of breast implants are controversial, the U.S. Department of Justice successfully sued silicone breast implant makers to recover the costs of treating patients with illness caused by implants.

The texturing of the implant comes with an increase in the profile of the implant, so that even the moderate implant has considerably more projection per volume than the smooth implant.. It is also saline-filled and comes in volumes from 175 cc to 525 cc, although the implants can be filled to a range of volumes, from 175-200 cc for the smallest model and 525-575 cc for the largest model.. Saline Smooth Round Moderate Profile Implant Model Numbers 350-1610 to 1697 These are Mentor’s moderate profile saline implants..
