How good are " Mentor Siltex Round Moderate plus cohesive I" breast implants?

Mentor implants are fine
Mentor offers a lifetime warranty on all their implants. If you have a leak or break in the implant, Mentor will replace the implant for free and the opposite implant for free also. If a silicone implant ruptures then Mentor will provide funds up to $3,500 to cover the surgery costs (anethesia, facility fee, surgeon's fee). The new silicone implants have been on the market place for 9 years now and the rupture rate is extremely low, around 1-2%. The gel is firm and not liquid, therefore it does not "ooze" out from the implant shell and behaves more like jell-o or a gummy bear. These implants appear to be very safe.

I have not seen a study about differences in longevity or "quality" among the implant makers. Any silicone implant may leak, that's why periodic exams and MRI are recommended to patients.
