The Mentor Memory Gels are Level I and II

exactly i'd prefer the cohesives in the I or II..

hi all, I actually have had my consult and will be getting the gummies really soon. They will be placed behind the muscle and my quote was right at 8,650.00 because I will have to have a breast lift as well. Currently I am a 36B (don't judge me!!!) and will be going to a full D cup! Only 3k more and I am in there!

the dr told her the cover(?) broke down? not a silcone bag but the cover....

she regret getting them cause she thought she had 10 to 12 yrs before replacing them. now it would be 10,000 ?

Gummies can rupture but does not leak like saline and silicone implants. They are firm and hold their shape. Some patients for years are unaware that their implants has ruptured until it is taken out. They might experience capsular contraction as an indication of a rupture, but there is no obvious change it shape.

This....exactly!

I got the cohesive gels 5 years ago. They will need to be replaced now because ive had twins and they grew Ma hooo sive then dropped so ai will be needing an uplift as well. But I will definately get them again. Very natural feeling. Havent lost sensations in nipples or anything like that. Had them ever the musle.
