  • Dr. Mentz, whose group tracked the results of 39 patients, said, "I think it's a good implant for patients interested in saline implants, especially if they're lean patients. 
  • Mentz and his group at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) in Houston, Texas are one of 35 private practices chosen to participate in the implant's 10-year U.S. clinical trial, in which 45 plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery took part.
