What is the Warranty for Your Breast Implants Bay Area?

Posted October 05, 2010 in Breast Augmentation, Breast Implant Revision Surgery, Home

Breast implant warranties vary by manufacturer and by implant. In the United States, Allergan and Mentor are the two FDA approved breast implant manufacturers. Their implants are essentially the same, and they have been known to match each others warranties when changes are made. Below are the details of the warranties for 2010.

Allergan’s Natrelle® Breast Implant Warranty

Allergan

Allergan markets their breast implants under the brand Natrelle®

Allergan’s breast implants are sold under the brand name Natrelle®. Every implant, saline or silicone gel, comes with the ConfidencePlus® warranty, and there is the option to buy the enhanced ConfidencePlus® Premier warranty.

The ConfidencePlus® warranty is free with the purchase of your Natrelle® breast implants, and it includes:
