Breast implants are quite safe. However, as the patient you must realize there are some small risks regarding breast implants. They can rupture and require replacement. They can require different surgery over time and additional expenses over time. It is unlikely that they will ever harm you in any way as long as they were managed and cared for annularly by your physician your gynecologist or your plastic surgeon. It important however that you are informed. Dr. Jacobsen wants you to be completely informed.
The Mentor Corporation is an American Corporation that makes the majority of breast implants in this country. They are committed to safety and to patient’s satisfaction. Mentor understands some of the issues of safety that I have addressed in other parts of this website and they have specific materials that you can review that I have listed links to and added PDFs that you can download and repeat at your leisure.
Here are some of the safety issues associated with silicone gel implants and saline implants.
The following is a document written that is 60 pages long that has all the elements and descriptions of the implant device and information about sizes and shapes and a huge compendium of information that may be worth reviewing. Dr. Jacobsen can go over these things with you as well.
Dr. Jacobsen uses the Mentor implants because he feels they are well-made and very safe and consistent. The Mentor Corporation is very committed to ensuring that women are safe and are happy and care for these women and follow-up with their woman very carefully as well. They keep a compendium of records of all women that have these breast implants and follow-up on any complications or failures that may occur. Dr. Jacobsen is always been impressed with this company and has visited their factory in Dallas Texas that is involved in the manufacturing process and has spoken directly to the technicians and multiple scientists that have developed them and are continuing to improve them.
It’s important for you to understand all the elements of the breast device. Reading some of these materials will be very helpful to you.
