At SurgiSpa, I am pleased to offer MENTOR MemoryGel Xtra Breast Implants for my Las Vegas patients. MENTOR is part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies and has been researching breast implant technology for more than 30 years.
What makes MENTOR MemoryGel Xtra implants different?
MemoryGel Xtra implants have a softer, more natural feel than previous versions of this “gummy bear” type implant while still offering increased projection and fullness. Saline implants can ripple and slosh. Older silicone implants made with non-cohesive gel (and saline implants) tend to lose fullness at the top of the breast when the patient stands upright, because the contents settle to the bottom of the implant shell. MemoryGel Xtra implants are different because they retain their shape without rippling or thinning at the top while feeling very soft and natural.
What are the implants made of?
MemoryGel Xtra Breast Implants contain a proprietary cohesive silicone gel that is not a liquid, and instead holds together uniformly without sagging downward to the lower end of the implant. This cohesive gel is technologically advanced silicone that feels natural and provides results that closely resemble natural breast tissue.
Who should consider MENTOR MemoryGel Xtra implants?
Made in the U.S., MemoryGel Xtra implants are ideal for women seeking breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reconstruction. MemoryGel Breast Implants have a 97% satisfaction rate for primary breast augmentation patients and a 99% satisfaction rate for primary breast reconstruction patients. These statistics are based on patients surveyed 10 years after surgery in the MENTOR MemoryGel Breast Implant 10 Year Core Gel Clinical Study Final Report.
Can I change out my current implants for MemoryGel Xtra implants?
Of course! Many women visit me for elective implant exchange because they want to “upgrade” their breast implants with the latest options. MemoryGel Xtra implants are a good choice for women who want their breasts to look and feel very natural. These implants are excellent for increasing fullness in the upper breasts and enhancing the cleavage between the breasts. During elective implant exchange, patients can also adjust implant size, shape, or profile (if desired). I can often place the incisions in the same location as the previous surgery to avoid creating new scars.
This implant comes in a range of sizes and in both smooth and textured shell surface options. During your complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss which size and shell surface will best provide your desired look.
