If you read our previous blog, you know about the recent news highlighting a recall of breast implants made by a French manufacturer, Poly Implant Prothese (PIP). In response to the recall, the French government went as far as to provide financial compensation to residents for the removal of the recalled PIP breast implants.
We are excited to tell you that Mentor, the only breast implant manufacturer in the United States, has created a new program to help offset the costs of PIP implant replacement. The Mentor Compassionate Care Program is set up to assist women with PIP implants who wish to replace them. The program is offering a $250 American Express gift card to patients who replace PIP saline implants or PIP gel implants with Mentor Saline-filled Implants or Mentor MemoryGel Implants. Unlike the PIP implants, Mentor MemoryGel implants are made in the United States and filled with 100% hospital grade silicone.
Dr. Chiaramonte stands behind Mentor by providing his patients with the highest quality products and high standard of care for breast augmentation. Maryland patients can now take advantage of a similar program. Bella Cosmetic Surgery will match the Mentor Compassionate Care Program with a $250 discount for any patient who schedules surgery with Dr. Chiaramonte to replace PIP saline implants or PIP gel implants with Mentor Saline-filled Implants or Mentor MemoryGel Implants. Using safe products like Mentor implants is important to all of us at Bella Cosmetic Surgery, so we encourage qualified patients to call us today.
The program is valid from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012, and may be subject to limits. Please call our office today to learn about our program.
