MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants
MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants provide the soft, natural feel patients desire and are available in a wide range of sizes and profiles to fit the patient’s body. Each implant is filled with the Mentor proprietary cohesive gel that holds together uniformly and retains a natural give that better resembles breast tissue.* MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants come in either a textured or smooth surface shell.
MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants
MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants shape the breast and have a unique, tapered appearance. Unlike round breast implants, MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants are teardrop shaped, meaning they are thinner at the top and gently slope to a fuller projection point near the implant’s bottom to mimic the silhouette of a natural breast. The SILTEX® Microtexture Breast Implant gentle imprinting process is designed to help keep implants in place.
MENTOR® SPECTRUM® Adjustable Saline Breast Implants
The innovative line of MENTOR® SPECTRUM® Adjustable Saline Breast Implants makes the decision-making process easier than ever. Exclusive to Mentor, it is designed with proprietary technology that consists of a removable fill tube that offers the option for physicians to increase or decrease the size of the implant for up to six months after surgery.
MENTOR® ARTOURA® Breast Tissue Expanders
MENTOR® ARTOURA® Breast Tissue Expanders, available in smooth or SILTEX® Textured Shell Surface, are designed with Dynamic Control Technology™ to help surgeons achieve a desirable expansion profile and a precise pocket for breast reconstruction patients. The ARTOURA® Expander is the first tissue expander featuring internal architecture to deliver precisely controlled pocket formation.
MENTOR® CPX®4 Breast Tissue Expander
Used in breast reconstruction, MENTOR® CPX®4 Breast Tissue Expander, available in smooth or SILTEX® Shell Surface, is designed to expand primarily in the lower pole of the breast, so the resulting pocket will accommodate the implant and slope like a natural looking breast. It also has an integrated “injection dome” that allows surgeons to add saline solution to the expander and gradually stretch the breast tissue over several months.
MENTOR® Volume Sizing System
Introducing the MENTOR® Volume Sizing System. Eighteen volume sizing devices designed to help your patient feel invested in her size decision and satisfied with her result. Featuring a unique shape that fits over her natural breast, creating a more realistic preview of her new size. All provided in a high-quality clear, acrylic display case for ease of storage and presentation.
MENTOR® Saline-Filled Breast Implants
MENTOR® Saline-Filled Breast Implants are inflated to the desired size with sterile isotonic saline before implantation, as well as postimplantation. Saline has the firmest feel and a number of options for volume, shape and projection. MENTOR® Saline-Filled Breast Implants can also help reduce the number of surgeries by eliminating the need for separate expanders.

Important information: Prior to use, refer to the instructions for use supplied with this device for indications, contraindications, side effects, warnings and precautions.
- Breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. The longer people have them, the greater the chances are that they will develop complications, some of which will require more surgery.
- Breast implants have been associated with the development of a cancer of the immune system called breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). This cancer occurs more commonly in patients with textured breast implants than smooth implants, although rates are not well defined. Some patients have died from BIA-ALCL.
- Patients receiving breast implants have reported a variety of systemic symptoms such as joint pain, muscle aches, confusion, chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases and others. Individual patient risk for developing these symptoms has not been well established. Some patients report complete resolution of symptoms when the implants are removed without replacement.
Caution: US law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
The sale and distribution of Mentor Breast Implant Devices are restricted to users and/or user facilities that provide information to patients about the risks and benefits of the device prior to its use in the form and manner specified in approved labeling to be provided by Mentor Worldwide LLC.
MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants, MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants, and MENTOR® Saline-filled Breast Implants are indicated for breast augmentation in women (at least 22 years old for MemoryGel® Implants and MemoryShape® Implants, and 18 years old for Saline Implants) or for breast reconstruction. Breast implant surgery should not be performed in women with active infection anywhere in their body, with existing cancer or pre-cancer of their breast who have not received adequate treatment for those conditions, or who are currently pregnant or nursing.
Breast implants are not lifetime devices and breast implantation may not be a one-time surgery. The most common complications for breast augmentation and reconstruction with MemoryGel® Implants include any reoperation, capsular contracture, and implant removal with or without replacement. The most common complications with MemoryShape® Implants for breast augmentation include reoperation for any reason, implant removal with or without replacement, and ptosis. The most common complications with MemoryShape® Implants for breast reconstruction include reoperation for any reason, implant removal with or without replacement, and capsular contracture. A lower risk of complication is rupture. The health consequences of a ruptured silicone gel breast implant have not been fully established. MRI screenings are recommended three years after initial implant surgery and then every two years after to detect silent rupture. The most common complications with MENTOR® Saline-filled Implants include reoperation, implant removal, capsular contracture, breast pain, and implant deflation.
For MemoryGel® Implants, patients should receive a copy of Important Information for Augmentation Patients about MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants or Important Information for Reconstruction Patients about MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants. For MemoryShape® Implants, patients should receive a copy of Patient Educational Brochure – Breast Augmentation with MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants or Patient Educational Brochure – Breast Reconstruction with MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants, and a copy of Quick Facts about Breast Augmentation & Reconstruction with MENTOR® MemoryShape® Breast Implants. For MENTOR® Saline-filled Implants, patients should receive a copy of Saline-Filled Breast Implants: Making an Informed Decision. Your patient needs to read and understand the information regarding the risks and benefits of breast implants, with an opportunity to consult with you prior to deciding on surgery.
The ARTOURA® Breast Tissue Expander or CONTOUR PROFILE® Breast Tissue Expander can be utilized for breast reconstruction after mastectomy, correction of an underdeveloped breast, scar revision, and tissue defect procedures. The expander is intended for temporary subcutaneous or submuscular implantation and is not intended for use beyond six months. Do not use the ARTOURA® Tissue Expander nor CONTOUR PROFILE® Tissue Expander in patients where an MRI maybe needed. The device could be moved by the MRI causing pain or displacement, potentially resulting in a revision surgery. The incidence of extrusion of the expander has been shown to increase when the expander has been placed in injured areas.
For detailed indications, contraindications, warnings, and precautions associated with the use of all MENTOR® Implantable Devices, which include MENTOR® Saline-filled Implants, MemoryGel® Implants, MemoryShape® Implants, ARTOURA® Expanders, and CONTOUR PROFILE® Expanders, please refer to the Instructions for Use (IFUs) provided with each product.
