That’s right!

Both saline and silicone implants come with a product warranty. This can provide you with peace of mind, should anything unexpected ever occur. The warranty can also reassure you in your implant choice, knowing the manufacturer will stand behind its implants. As long as your implants have been used according to the manufacturer’s expressly written directions, the full replacement cost, and money for extra expenses, can be recouped.

Natrelle Silicone Gel Implants:

  • ConfidencePlus Warranty
  • Applies to a loss of shell integrity resulting in implant rupture or deflation
  • Each implant covered separately, so one or both can be replaced
  • Enrollment free and automatic
  • Pays for financial assistance up to $3,500
  • Lifetime replacement

Mentor Saline Implants:

  • Lifetime product replacement
  • 10 year financial assistance warranty (from date of implant)
  • Standard Advantage Warranty: Free; pays up to $1,200 toward out-ofpocket costs.
  • Optional Enhanced Advantage Warranty: $100 fee; pays up to $2,400 toward out-of-pocket costs.

There are important factors that may cause your implant warranty to become void. These can include using a non-qualified surgeon, the implants being placed while patient was under the minimum age, or saline implants that were filled over the maximum cc amount.
