New breast implant warranty program

Article-New breast implant warranty program

A new expanded warranty program for all Mentor breast implants sold in the U.S. is the industry’s most comprehensive warranty, according to the company.

MENTOR says their Promise Protection Plan provides the highest level of patient financial assistance and covers the broadest range of potential complications like rupture, capsular contracture, double capsule and late seroma.

All Mentor breast implant recipients will automatically be enrolled in the protection base plan, which also guarantees lifetime replacement for rupture and 10-year coverage for other events.

An enhanced version of the plan is available for a fee.

“We understand the importance of developing products that not only make our patients feel confident, but also give them and their surgeons the extra peace of mind that comes with choosing Mentor products,” says Warren Foust, vice president of Mentor U.S. sales and marketing, in a press release.

“This warranty program reinforces the confidence we have in the quality of our products and our commitment to our customers and their patients,” Mr. Foust says.

The announced expanded product warranty program comes on the heels of FDA approval of the Mentor MemoryGel Xtra breast implants, which are designed for extra fullness and protection in women undergoing breast reconstruction, augmentation or revision surgery.
