Motiva, Sebbin, and Mentor are three of the leading brands of breast implants. While all three brands are FDA-approved and considered safe, there are some differences between them that patients should be aware of when considering breast augmentation. Here are some of the key differences:
1. Implant Fill Material
- Motiva implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel that is designed to mimic the natural look and feel of breast tissue.
- Sebbin implants are also filled with silicone gel, but it is less cohesive than Motiva and is said to provide a softer feel.
- Mentor implants offer both saline and silicone options. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater and silicone implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel.
2. Surface Texture:
- Motiva implants have a unique surface texture called “SilkSurface,” which is designed to reduce the risk of capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant) and improve implant stability and position.
- Sebbin implants have a smooth surface texture.
- Mentor implants come in both smooth and textured options.
3. Implant Shapes and Sizes:
- Motiva and Sebbin offer a range of implant shapes and sizes to fit different body types and aesthetic goals.
- Mentor offers a wide range of shapes, sizes, and profiles, including round and teardrop shapes, and low to high profiles.
- Motiva implants offer a comprehensive warranty that covers both the implant and the surgical procedure, as well as an optional extended warranty.
- Sebbin offers a 10-year warranty for implant rupture and capsular contracture.
- Mentor offers a lifetime warranty for implant rupture and a 10-year warranty for capsular contracture.
Ultimately, the choice of breast implant brand will depend on factors such as the patient’s individual needs, body type, and aesthetic goals, as well as the surgeon’s recommendation. It’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who can help guide you through the decision-making process and recommend the best implant option for you.
