    Hi there,
    Thanks for your question about breast implant brands. 
    As you have discovered, there are many different brands of breast implants! The differences vary based on shape, size, construction technique, what type of fill is used, warranty available on the implant etc etc. Some surgeons will use different brands based on what they are comfortable with, what they find works best for them, and what they believe is best for the patient. 
    There are variations in price, and this can influence some patients decision. 
    I would personally use a brand based on their history of quality control, low rate of complications (rupture, rippling etc), and the quality of the warranty and customer service provided. If you wanted to choose based on safety and quality, go for a manufacturer that has been around for long time. Bigger names in the industry will tend to be around for the long term. 
    Good luck with your decision

    Dear Blossom girl,

    There are many brands of breast implants available, and each surgeon has their own preference.
    In my clinic, my preference is to use the textured Mentor range which is inclusive of both Siltex (round) and CPG (anatomical/teardrop) implants.

    Combined with correct surgical technique, Mentor implants have low risks of complications and due to their diversity in size, shape and gel cohesivity, my patients feel they produce the most aesthetically pleasing results.

    Kind Regards,
    Dr Tavakoli

    Hi Blossom Girl.
    Every plastic surgeon has there favourite brand/s of breast implants, depending on what has worked well in their experience. Although not always the case, history has indicated that certain brands implants, although cheaper, can be of poorer quality, and this may have implication toward the safety of their use. Always go with a reputable brand that's been around for a while. Check the company's warranty information. Some implant companies place heavy emphasis on research and development, and are confident in the quality of their products to the extent of having a lifetime replacement policy. 
    I hope this information helps in your decision making.
    Warm regards,
    Dr Ray Goh
