Are Allergan breast implants better than Mentor Implants?

I need to make a decision on whether or not to get Allergan or Mentor implants for my upcoming procedure. Does anyone know the key differences between the two? I would prefer to hear it from a professional rather than scrounging around the Internet for information to compare. Any advice would be beneficial at this point, thanks!

Mentor and Allergan are probably the top two implant manufacturers in the market and you really can't go wrong with either one. At my busy San Antonio practice which has specialized in breast augmentation for over 20 years, we use both products. There are some patients where I recommend Allergan, and others for which Mentor implants give the profile best for that patient. An experienced surgeon selects the implants best for the patient over selection of just a single brand as there are always times when a different implant is just better for that one patient. I hope this helps in your decision.

Hi. I don't think you would go wrong with either.  Both companies have stood the test of time and are committed to their product.  They each have different size dimensions that are unique so this may be an important factor in deciding which fits your body best.  Talk to your PS to see if he/she has a preference and why.  Best of luck!
