Breast Implants Warranty

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. Neil J. Zemmel keeps your personal safety and your cosmetic expectations in mind from your initial consultation through your postoperative care. With comprehensive warranty programs from Allergan®, Sientra®, and MENTOR®, that care can be extended well after your recovery is complete. Remember breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime. If an implant ruptures, it should be replaced as soon as possible with breast revision surgery.

Natrelle® (Allergan) Warranty

Though Natrelle implants have an extremely low rupture rate, Allergan offers warranty programs designed to give you peace of mind as you enjoy your new figure—as well as financial aid in the rare case of a rupture. For all patients who choose Natrelle implants for their breast augmentation, the ConfidencePlus® program offers patients many free benefits without any additional enrollment steps. Allergan’s ConfidencePlus Warranty includes:
  • Lifetime-guaranteed product replacement due to loss of shell integrity
  • 10 years of financial assistance up to $3500 for gel implant rupture
  • Financial assistance up to $7500 in the rare event of a BIA-ALCL diagnosis
  • 10 years of coverage for gel breast implant replacement if capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV) occurs
  • 10 years of financial assistance up to $2400 for saline implant deflation (available with upgrade to Premier Warranty)
As part of the coverage for gel implant replacement, Natrelle also gives free contralateral (opposite side) implant replacement. Additionally, any style or size of Natrelle gel breast implants can be used in the event of a replacement. For patients who desire extended coverage, the ConfidencePlus Premier program is available for an additional $200; you must enroll within 45 days of your procedure.

MENTOR Warranty

All MENTOR breast implants are covered under the MENTORPromise® Protection Plan. Depending on the type of implant used, this warranty program provides multiple benefits, which include:
  • Lifetime replacement for implant rupture
  • 10 years of coverage for deflation of saline implants
  • 10 years of financial assistance up to $3500 for gel implant rupture
  • 10 years of gel implant coverage for capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV), double capsule, and late seroma complications
  • 10 years of financial assistance coverage for gel implants should capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV), double capsule, and late seroma complications occur
For additional coverage options, patients can upgrade their warranty within 45 days of surgery to the MENTORPromise Enhanced Protection Plan. This costs $200 for saline implants and $300 for MemoryShape® and MemoryGel® implants.

Sientra Warranty

Patients who receive Sientra breast implants are automatically enrolled in the Sientra Platinum20™ Limited Warranty and Product Replacement Program, offering the following coverage benefits:
  • Lifetime replacement for implant rupture
  • 20 years of financial assistance up to $5000 for any uncovered fees related to implant rupture
  • 20 years of implant replacement for capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV), double capsule, and late seroma complications
  • 2 years of financial assistance up to $2000 for uncovered fees related to capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV), double capsule, and late seroma
Should you need an implant replaced under the Sientra warranty, you can receive a free contralateral implant replacement.
