How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements.

Mentor Worldwide LLC, a global leader in breast aesthetics, today announced at The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) meeting the new MENTORPromise Protection Plan – the industry’s most comprehensive warranty program – for all MENTOR® breast implants sold in the U.S.

All MENTOR® breast implant recipients are automatically enrolled in the MENTORPromise Protection base plan, and the company offers an enhanced version of the plan for an additional fee.

The company notes the warranty program provides even more protection than the company’s current industry-leading plan, by offering  the highest level of financial assistance for the broadest range of needs, including a lifetime guarantee for product replacement and 10-year financial assistance coverage.

“When you have a warranty program as strong as the MENTORPromise Protection Plan, it makes choosing MENTOR® products an easy decision,” said Dr. Aldo Guerra,* MD, Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). “The company’s confidence in their products reassures me that I am working with quality products, and that is exactly what my patients want.”

The company is announcing this new warranty program following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval of MENTOR® MemoryGel® Xtra Breast Implants, designed for extra fullness and projection in women undergoing breast reconstruction, augmentation or revision surgery. This extension to the company’s top-selling global brand of breast implants will be covered under the protection plan.

“We understand the importance of developing products that not only make our patients feel confident, but also give them and their surgeons the extra peace of mind that comes with choosing our company’s products,” said Warren Foust, Vice President, US Sales and Marketing. “This warranty program reinforces the confidence we have in the quality of our products and our commitment to our customers and their patients.”
