Silicone MemoryGel®
Breast Implants

Softest and Most Natural-Feeling Breast Implants

What is Silicone MemoryGel®

Silicone MemoryGel® is the softest breast implants available on the cosmetic surgery market while at the same time perkier than the natural breast. This offers patients the opportunity to achieve beautiful, round, and fuller breast augmentation results while rejuvenating the overall feel and look of the breasts.

MemoryGel® breast implants contain the latest generation of silicone. They are prefilled with Mentor's uniquely formulated silicone gel. This gel is not a liquid or semi-liquid like it was in the past. It is instead a cohesive gel that holds safely and uniformly to deliver a natural feel that closely resembles breast tissue.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Cohesive MemoryGel silicone breast implants.

Patients achieve natural looking and feeling results. The gel inside silicone breast implants is cohesive or “gummy bear” in nature and most closely resembles the natural feel of the breast when compared to saline breast implants.

The “gummy bear” implant is filled with a silicone gel, a material not absorbed by the body if the implant ruptures. It is generally what is liked about Silicone MemoryGel® Breast Implants. Since they have the same consistency of gummy bear candies, there is no inner gel to leak out.

MemoryGel® breast implant cut in half. Notice the cohesive gel slimilar properties to a gummy bear.

How To Choose the Right Size For You

Volume Sizing System
Breast implant sizes come in 25cc increments.

MemoryGel® breast implants are available in 25cc increments for the most popular Moderate Plus and High profile implants. They make the issue of addressing natural asymmetry of the breasts straightforward. With the Mentor® Volume Sizing System you will be able to try on different cup sizes at your consultation.

Currently, approximately 70% of our breast enhancement patients choose MemoryGel® breast implants for their breast augmentation. The silicone implants are made in the USA, are FDA approved, and in our experience, consistently offer beautiful long term results for patients.

There are many things you should consider before deciding which breast implant sizes would be the right fit for you. Below are the options to consider before making your final choice:

  • Age
  • Body Type
  • Natural Breast Shape

No matter the age, whether you're lean with smaller breasts, or vivacious with a C cup, you need to think carefully before choosing from different breast implant sizes.

We highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Aldo Guerra to help you determine the breast implant size for your desired results.

Incision Details

There are three common incision techniques used during breast implant surgery:

  • Inframammary Incision
    This is the most common among incision techniques and is made below the breast fold.
  • Periareolar Incision
    This incision is made around the nipple and is typically the most concealed.
  • Transaxillary Incision
    This incision is made right under the arm. An endoscope is utilized to help tunnel through the area and create a pocket behind the breast.

These silicone breast implants are quite firmer and require a slightly longer incision than saline implants.

Q & A with Dr. Aldo

How many patients in your practice choose silicone breast implants?
9 out of 10 women choose silicone breast implants in my practice.

What anesthesia will be used?
General anesthesia is commonly used, but local anesthesia is an option. Discuss the most appropriate choice of anesthesia with your doctor.

When can I resume my normal life?
Many women are able to return to work within just a few days. But it's best to avoid any strenuous activities that could raise your pulse and blood pressure for a couple of weeks.

Are you a good candidate for this procedure?

If you are not content with the size or shape of your natural breasts, or have become dissatisfied with its appearance after pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation can help.

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who have a thorough understanding of the procedure, including its risks, benefits and costs. Realistic expectations about the outcome are also important. Women should only consider undergoing breast augmentation for themselves and not at someone else's urging.

The real step toward finding out if you are a candidate is a thorough consultation with Dr. Aldo Guerra.
