The New Mentor Implant

We're proud to say that we're participating in Mentor's study for their upcoming adjustable implants.

The new Mentor adjustable breast implant is 80% silicone and up to 20% saline. I am one of 30 plastic surgeons chosen by them to be an investigator for it.

The photo is of Dr. Hilton Becker of Boca Raton (co-investigator and inventor of the implant) and Dr. Robert Ray of Dr. 90210 fame (also a co-investigator). As you can see, this is a high-profile implant and becomes even more so when saline is added to the inner lumen.

Doctors can adjust size on the table, or with a buried port can adjust up to 6 months after surgery. The study is for primary augmentations and revision surgeries, with sizes ranging up to over 900cc.

This is the first in an innovative series of adjustable silicone implants that Mentor in working on. Women who are interested in this implant, please e-mail me and I'll refer to the closest investigator.
