Why Mentor?

Mentor is an industry leader in the manufacturing of breast implants around the world.

The company has manufactured an implant using their very own 'MemoryGel', which is trademarked, and provides one of the softest and fluid-feeling experiences of any implant.

Mentor implants not only feel natural to touch, but also retain a natural, uniform shape that moves with the muscle and tissue of the natural breast.

In addition, there are multiple options available to patients, including shape, feel and size of implant.

Furthermore, the brand is renowned for carrying one of the most comprehensive warranty of any implant and has very low rate of complication following augmentation.

Below is a list of the core points on why patients choose Mentor implants:

  • Implants are filled with cohesive gel.
  • Widely used in the UK for augmentation procedures.
  • Looks like a natural breast.
  • Feels like natural breast tissue.
  • Patients can choose the exact size and shape they desire.
  • Multiple projection options available, including classic, moderate and high profile.
  • Textured or smooth surface options to choose.
  • Covered by the Mentor 10 year warranty - Patient Care Promise.

Mentor Options

There are many options available for breast surgery with Mentor products.

These include:

  • MemoryShape
  • MemoryGel
  • Mentor Spectrum

MemoryShape are designed for projection, performance and peace of mind. The implants are filled with Mentor's cohesive gel, which ensures durability and shape retention along with projection that lasts. For patients looking for larger boobs with a natural shape, then this implant is ideal.


MemoryGel implants have been used in boob jobs around the world for more than 20 years. These implants do not compromise on safety or reliability and create the feeling of natural breast tissue with either a smooth or textures surface. Regardless of your body profile and shape, these implants can give you the exact results you wish to achieve from breast surgery.

Mentor Spectrum are the alternative to silicone cohesive gel and use saline instead. The products come in a range of sizes, textures and shapes. Unlike MemoryGel and MemoryShape products, these are filled with saline and can be adjusted (filled) after implanting to the desired size of the patient. Following filling to desired size, the fill tube is removed and the Mentor Spectrum implant seals itself automatically.

For patients wanting to know more, the best way to get the most information is to arrange a consultation and discuss your needs in person. Doing this will not only provide a personable service, but also allow for assessment of your individual qualities and expected results.

Mentor Breast Implant Shapes and Sizes

As with most breast implants, Mentor are available in two shapes - round and teardrop.

Round implants are circular and can be moved once they are in position. When moved, the shape of the boob will not distort.


Teardrop implants are, as the name suggests, tear drop in shape - meaning they are thinner at the top and increase in volume near the bottom to create a larger projection. These are known for creating a more natural breast shape and are designed to appear in line with a natural female silhouette.

Each implant shape, depending on the size, creates a different projection.

Projection, also known as breast profile, is the phrase used to describe the depth of the boob from the front to the chest. Boobs with less projection are also known as shallow breasts.

Choosing an implant with a larger projection will create a more prominent look and alter your natural body's silhouette more than one with a smaller projection.

If you are wondering what size to opt for with breast augmentation, it is best to discuss your needs with an experienced consultant. This is because implants are not measured in the same way as bra cup size. Instead, implants are measured in cubic centimetres. The higher the number, the larger the breast implant will be.

Sizing is very important when it comes to implants. Often patients have an idea of what results they wish to achieve, but your existing breast tissue plays a vital role in determining what size implant you can accommodate.

During a consultation and assessment, you will be able to get an accurate visualisation of how your new breasts will look using a Mentor volume sizing system.

Breast Reconstruction Surgery - FAQ

The most common side effects from breast reconstruction surgery are; tiredness, pain, discomfort and itching. These symptoms can be managed with the use of medication.
This depends on the type of job you have and your job role. If your job is not strenuous, you may be able to return to work after 2 weeks providing you are well enough.
Feeling tired after surgery is common. However, even if you feel like you have enough energy, it is important to take it easy and do not do anything strenuous such as lifting or using the hoover. Low activity is fine after a couple of weeks but intense activity should be avoided for 1-2 months.
Driving is possible after surgery as long as you are comfortable performing manoeuvres such as emergency stop and are not in pain from wearing a seatbelt.
Having sex is fine as long as you feel comfortable and are not in pain. Most patients wait a few weeks to return to a normal sexlife.

Vaser Liposuction - Patients Stories


Sharon Ruth

It feels good to share my personal experience with Manchester Private Hospital. I was fully supported and provided with complete guidance when I approached them for undergoing fat reduction treatment. It was a difficult decision to make to begin with because it’s after all a surgery. It was also important for me to get a better guidance in terms of choosing an appropriate treatment as there were a couple of options under liposuction for me to choose from. When I concluded on Vaser Liposuction, I was taken through all the possible situations by experts which was very precise and to the point. The whole engagement process helped as a motivation for me to go ahead and experience the ultimate benefits of cosmetic fat reduction.

Aaron John

Getting back to a well toned body shape had been a very strong desire for me which seemed impossible till the time I came across Vaser Liposuction. When I first read about the benefits of the procedure, it wasn’t a straight-forward thing for me to readily connect with the outcomes. Typically it was a mixed set of feeling I was approaching it with and thankfully I also heard about Manchester Private Hospital. Being a cosmetic speciality clinic known for its reputation and high standards, it did provide me some sort of confidence that Vaser Liposuction actually works. All my counselling sessions went on very well with all my apprehensions getting cleared with every conversation I had with the Vaser specialists in the clinic. Undergoing the procedure was also hassle free because of all the facilities and comforting support I received from the team of professionals at the hospital. It feels good for me to have rediscovered myself and its all thanks to the advancements of Vaser Liposuction.

Eva Jones

The fears of going under the knife are always obvious for me and that kept me away from undergoing liposuction for many years. But, I badly wanted to get rid of my tummy fat which was making my entire outward appearance awkward. When I read about the sophistication and advanced options offered by Vaser Liposuction, I couldn’t resist but visit a cosmetic surgery clinic nearby. Fortunately, it happened to be the Manchester Private Hospital. It appeared fairly new and with all the upgraded facilities that one would want to know and feel great about. It really had a very positive impact that lasted till I underwent the surgery and happily left the clinic. Every single aspect of the clinic was impressive and well maintained, it’s needless to mention the expertise of the Vaser Liposuction Surgeons out there as they are simply excellent. I recommend MPH for all my friends for its quality treatment.

Paul Adams

It is very common for some of us to ignore certain important things and I find myself in that category quite often. My complacency in keeping up with my routine exercises and diet did cost me something I would regret. It was too late by the time I realized that I was completely out of shape and it led me into a phase of depression. It was obvious because I used to be very slim and perfectly in shape and it looked as though my youthful charm was all gone. When I reviewed the information about Vaser Liposuction published by Manchester Private Hospital, I though there is hope. My interaction with the surgeons who already helped many young fellows like me had really convinced me and I eventually opted for the treatment. Today I only had one regret; not walking in to MPH much earlier wasn’t a great idea. I’m a happy man for sure.

Evelin Jose

Even though I was lucky enough to maintain my overall body shape and appearance, it wasn’t the case with my double chin. I understood it was not related to entirely a phenomenon with aging and it is also possible to be reduced with modern treatment techniques. I was glad to know that Manchester Private Hospital offers specific treatments for fat removal and reduction. At the same time, I was also concerned about the accuracy of the surgery and the possible outcome as any adverse complication will be very evident. But the final result of the Vaser Liposuction had exceeded my expectation and today I really celebrate my restored facial look. I recommend MPH.
