* As compared to saline-filled breast implants. 

** Breast Implants are not a lifetime device and may require replacement during your lifetime.   

In the event of an unexpected rupture (loss of shell integrity), MENTOR® will provide replacement of a MENTOR® Product of any size in the same style as the originally implanted product free of charge for the lifetime of the patient. Upon the surgeon's request, a different implant style may be selected (subject to a charge of the difference between product list prices).
