Mentor breast implants benefitsNo matter your breast augmentation goals, it is critical to select the best type of implant. And with all of the options available on the market, you have a wide selection to choose from. Dr. George Sanders offers several types of breast implants at his Los Angeles-area plastic surgery practice, including options from the Mentor brand. Here, he discusses the advantages of Mentor implants.


When selecting your implants, the safety approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is non-negotiable. Your breast implants must be cleared by the FDA for use with conditions. Mentor saline implants are FDA-approved for breast augmentation candidates over the age of 18 and silicone implants are approved for breast augmentation candidates over the age of 21. Both types of implants are approved for breast reconstruction candidates of any age.

Look and Feel Like Natural Breasts

Mentor implants are known for delivering breast augmentation results that look and feel natural. The implant filling feels very natural to native breast tissue, and the implant shapes and projections closely mimic the curve of a natural breast.

Many Different Types

Mentor offers saline implants and two types of silicone implants that are available in different shapes, sizes, projections and textures. This variety in implant options allows for a more customizable and personalized fit. Breast augmentation candidates have unique body types and surgical goals — which means that the implants that are best for your sister or best friend won’t necessarily be right for you. Luckily, Mentor can satisfy nearly all needs and goals!

Warranty Options

Mentor implants are designed to last for many years without problems. But in the event that a rare complication occurs and the implants need to be removed or replaced, they are covered under warranty.

Your Surgeon’s Expertise Is Important

Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s the carpenter, not his tools”? More important than your choice of implant brand is your choice of breast augmentation surgeon. The skill and experience of your surgeon is what maximizes your chances of achieving great results and minimizes the surgical risks.

You would be wise to find a surgeon like Dr. Sanders, who is comfortable and familiar with Mentor implants and can deliver predictable results. To meet Dr. Sanders and discuss your breast implant options, please call (818) 981-3333 today and request a consultation.
