The FDA has approved a new implant for breast augmentation and breast reconstruction manufactured by Mentor. The implant has a sloping profile, with more projection at the base than at the top. The breast implant is filled with a cohesive silicone gel, so that it will maintain it’s shape.

The Mentor MemoryShape breast implants allow women yet another option to obtain the look and proportion that they want when undergoing breast augmentation.

Prior to FDA approval, these implants were used in over 70 countries worldwide.

As with any breast implant, these memory shape implants can have complications including capsular contracture, implant rippling, and implant rupture.

Only Plastic Surgeons certified with these implants may use them in their Plastic Surgery Practice.
