Yes Mentor Moderate breast implants are considered to be equivalent to Alleragan's low profile. I know this confusing because Mentor makes a Moderate Plus which is there equivalent of intermediate.

Regarding: "Are Mentor Moderates Considered Low Profile?"
With apologies to Will Shakespeare - "What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet; "
Mentor's Moderate is their LOWEST projecting implant. It also happens to be their (Heyer-Schulte's) oldest implant line. Their next line were the High Profile Implants - HP. By that time McGhan (Then Inamed, then Allergan and now called Natrelle came out with their Moderate Profile (MP) implants and was kicking the tar out of Mentor by giving Plastic surgeons an in-between implant which was applicable to many more women. Mentor had the last laugh, in my opinion, when they came out with their Moderate Plus saline implants (series 2000) which offers the best of all implants and are much more applicable to the largest group of women.
In summary, Mentor Moderates ARE Low Profile breast implants. Personally, I cannot think of many women who would like or enjoy having a low profile breast implant by any manufacturer.
