Whether for augmentation or reconstruction, your breast implant choice is personal, important, and life-changing. Mentor is committed to engaging and inspiring excellence in plastic surgeons through the soft, natural feel patients desire with the increased projection, fullness, and firmness from an implant.
Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant leak, a saline implant will deflate, and the saline will be naturally absorbed by the body.
Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant capsule or may escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse.
