New Teardrop MemoryShape® breast implants.
Silicone MemoryShape® breast implants are the newest state-of-the art option for women today. The latest clinical studies show that MemoryShape® breast implants have the lowest reported incidence of complications in primary breast augmentation at 10 years. This offers patients the opportunity to achieve the most natural breast augmentation results while at the same time reduce the risks of capsular contracture and rupture which are two possible complications for all breast implants. Dr. Aldo Guerra, one of the top plastic surgeons in Phoenix metro area, highly recommends MemoryShape® breast implants as the most superior option on the market today.
Helps create the natural shape of the breast.
MemoryShape® breast implants are designed to establish the most natural looking results using cohesive silicone gel-filled with a teardrop shape. Unlike the more traditional round breast implants, MemoryShape® breast implants are shaped to look like a natural breast. In fact, these implants are often referred to as “teardrop” breast implants because of their unique form. In addition, the gel material is soft and the feel of the breast after augmentation is also quite natural.
Beautiful, natural and long-term breast augmentation results.
More options with 5 different projections.
There are 5 teardrop MemoryShape® breast implant profiles to choose from depending on your body shape and measurements. Dr. Aldo will take your chest measurements at your consultation and determine the best fit breast implants for you. Depending on the look that you desire he will make recommendations to achieve those results. MemoyrShape® is the newest and most advanced breast implant available on the market today.
Soft and cohesive gel, best implant on the market.
The design of MemoryShape® breast implants improves dramatically over previously available breast implant designs. The most significant advancement involves the character of the silicone gel designed uniquely for these breast implants. The gel material is a highly linked form of silicone that allows the breast implant to maintain its teardrop silhouette and yet feels like a natural breast. This ability to maintain this shape allows the breast implant to contour the breast into a beautiful figure. Because of this trait, these implants are often referred to as contour profile gel (CPG) or simply as “gummy bear” implants.
There are a lot of breast implants on the market, which is the best?
In my opinion, Mentor® MemoryShape® breast implants are the best.
The ideal patient for MemoryShape® breast implants.
In nature, the most natural breast appears to have a full bottom, a gently tapered upper pole that is not overly round, and a beautiful overall shape and projection. To the human eye, this “teardrop” shape has been historically considered the most attractive breast profile. Therefore, the ideal patient for a MemoryShape® breast implant is someone who has little breast tissue and desires to have breast enhancement that looks fuller but also resembles the natural breast shape.
Patients who are ideal candidates for MemoryShape® breast implants also have small breast volume before surgery (A or B cup), good skin tone and not too elastic or saggy, and have a breast crease that is well formed. Patients with asymmetry of the breast volume where one cup is bigger than the other are good candidates for MemoryShape® while patients who are symmetrical are ideal candidates for these shaped breast implants.

Planning for MemoryShape® breast implants.
With MemoryShape® breast implants, the size recommendation is based strictly on the measurements of your natural breast. In particular, the breast base (width) diameter. The breast base diameter is measured during consultation and the corresponding sizes can be recommended at that time. Using these measurements as a guideline, the recommended breast implant will deliver the best volume for your breasts and result in a natural breast contour. On the other hand, if patients choose a diameter bigger than recommended, then too much roundness is introduced and this may result in a lack on natural breast shape.
All patients are marked prior to surgery on the day of the operation. Breast marking for this surgical breast augmentation procedure requires more detail and having extra time for markings is important.
Expectations for MemoryShape® breast implants.
A woman who receives MemoryShape® breast implants can expect to have a round and well-contoured breast shape, with a natural upper portion of the breast that gently slopes down to a fuller lower breast. They can also expect to have a cup size enhancement of 1 or 2 cups at most. Bigger implants to achieve a bigger cup will likely lead to too much fullness in the breast. This will void the natural silhouette and instead create a more round breast shape.
After surgery, most patients can expect a straightforward breast augmentation recovery and relatively low discomfort. You can also expect not to massage these breast implants. Because of their unique design, MemoryShape® breast implants do not require any displacement exercises or breast massaging. We do highly recommend a breast positioning band should be worn up to 6 weeks while a supportive bra during the day may be required for up to 12 weeks. After this, a supportive bra may be recommended for sleeping for up to 1 year.
MemoryGel® offers round look, upper pole volume.
We may recommend another type of breast implant if you desire a different shape or look than that which is delivered by MemoryShape® breast implant devices. We must recall that a teardrop breast implant will result in a teardrop breast shape after breast surgery. If your goal is to have a mildly or highly prominent upper breast, the best recommendation in such cases is for a round silicone gel implant, also called MemoryGel® breast implant.
Patients more often seek out round breast implants because round is a more popular breast shape. Round breast implant like the MemoryGel® are also soft and result in a natural feel to the breast. The biggest difference between round and shaped breast implants is the breast silhouette after surgery. In addition, round breast implants have less limitations with regards to size and patients may seek bigger breast implants not conforming to breast base measurements.
