Mentor Becker Double Lumen 50% Gel / 50% Saline
This implant was introduced in 1984. It was created by Hilton Becker, MD in conjunction with Mentor. It was initially designed for use in breast reconstruction patients, but soon became popular with general breast augmentation patients.
The injection dome/fill tube and has a low bleed, gel-filled outer lumen and an adjustable saline-fillable inner lumen. The inner lumen can be gradually filled with saline over an extended period of time via the fill tube by injecting saline through the injection dome. Once expanded to the desired volume, the fill tube and injection dome are removed through a small incision under local anesthetic, and the prosthesis remains in position as a breast implant.
The Smooth Becker 50/50 contains 50% gel in the outer lumen (shell), and 50% saline in the inner lumen (shell). Round shape.
Note: This implant is not available.
