Mentor CPG Implants

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™.

Like the others, it has been approved by the FDA after undergoing clinical trials since the early 2000s.

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.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Teitelbaum was a member of the national plastic surgery task force that developed the Covid-19 protocols for plastic surgery offices. He is therefore well-versed in all of the recommendations and his office meets or exceeds all of them. By now you are familiar with all the obvious measures such as reminding patients and staff not to come to the office if they have any symptoms, taking temperatures, maintaining social distancing, having everyone wear masks, placing hand sanitizers everywhere, reducing the number of patients in the office at one time, testing all surgical patients, etc. One unique feature is that Dr. Teitelbaum’s operating room has "laminar flow" – a very advanced system that directs the flow of air from a large diffuser on the ceiling to exhausts near the floor, ensuring that the fresh air flows in one direction. This not only reduces the chance of COVID infections for the patients and staff, but it also reduces the risk of surgical infections.
