Implant choices

All three implants are reputable implants from well known and well studies manufacturers. Implant choice is often just related to surgeon preference. Certain surgeons are used to certain implant manufacturers and have a more consistent outcome with specific ones. I would let your surgeon guide you in this process.

Implant quality

Thanks for your question.  Yes, Mentor produces a great implant.  All 3 companies (Allergan, Sientra, and Mentor) produce very nice implants.  They vary somewhat with regard to size, shape, and firmness but are all good implants.  I will often use different companies implants based on patient breast measurements and goals.  Best to communicate your goals and desires with your surgeon and participate in your sizing and planning process.  Best wishes.

Hi-

 Mentor implants are safe implants and very well studied along with Sientra and Allergen. Implant preference is usually up to the surgeon, however I give the option to all my patients if they have a preference. There are slight differences with each of the implants so it make be helpful to ask your plastic surgeon why he chooses Mentor implants over the other brands for your understanding. Good Luck!
