CPG stands for “Contour Profile Gel,” and it is Mentor’s highly cohesive anatomically shaped implant. The term they use for the silicone fill of this implant is MemoryShape™, as opposed to the fill of their regular silicone gel implant, which is called MemoryGel™.
Unlike the Allergan Natrelle 410, it is not yet approved by the FDA but has been undergoing clinical trials since the early 2000s. The published data with this implant is outstanding, and it is hoped that after reviewing this data, the FDA will approve this implant and it will be available to all plastic surgeons and women in the United States.
Dr. Teitelbaum has used this implant in hundreds of women and understands the specific issues in CPG implant size and shape selection. Having seen how this implant has performed in a wide variety of situations, he can advise patients on the benefits and tradeoffs of this implant.
Dr. Teitelbaum is one of the only American surgeons to have used the 410, CPG, and Silimed/Sientra implants. He has followed his patients annually since the beginning of the study, witnessing any changes that occurred over the decade of follow-up. This scope and breadth of experience makes Dr. Teitelbaum one of the outstanding experts on gummy bear breast implants in the United States.
At this time, the Mentor CPG with MemoryShape™ gel breast implant is available only to patients agreeing to participate in and abide by all the requirements of a clinical trial.
