Warranty on your Silicone Implants
Did you know that your silicone implants can have a warranty? All patients who receive Mentor MemoryGel® silicone breast implants are automatically eligible for the Mentor Lifetime Product Replacement Policy. This means that Mentor will provide replacement of a Mentor product of any size in the same or similar style as the originally implanted product free of charge for the lifetime of the patient. Upon request of Dr. Brenner, a different implant style may be selected(subject to a charge of the difference between product list prices). What this means to you is that should a confirmed rupture occur, you are eligible for up to two replacement breast implants or any size in a similar style…at no charge.
The Mentor MemoryGel® Silicone Breast Implant Premier Advantage Limited Warranty applies to surgeries occurring after May 1, 2009. It offers up to $3,500 in financial assistance. This includes Mentor’s Lifetime product replacement policy. This applies to expenses occurring from a confirmed rupture for up to 10 years from the date of implant surgery. The warranty pays up to $3,500 (*operating room and anesthesia charges to be given payment priority) financial assistance for operating room, anesthesia, and surgical charges not covered by insurance and applies only to implant surgeries conducted after May 1, 2009. This may include free contralateral (opposite side) implant replacement upon Dr. Brenner’s request. The terms are non-cancellable.
