Dr. Tim R. Love, MD’s plastic surgery practice has been chosen as one of the facilitators of Mentor’s nationwide Glow Study – a 10-year study that follows the results of MemoryShape® and MemoryGel® breast implants and overall quality of life after plastic surgery.
Mentor, a subsidiary of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, is a global leader in aesthetic medicine who develops and manufactures innovative products for plastic surgeons all over the world. Because of Dr. Tim R. Love, MD’s previous Investigator status with Mentor, this partnership is an incredible honor.
The Purpose of the Glow Study
The Glow Study’s purpose is to ensure that MemoryShape® and MemoryGel® breast implants continue to be a safe, high-quality implant – even years after the procedure. The study is a 10-year commitment and will involve 2,818 patients across the United States. The participants will help collect long-term data on these implants. Additionally, there will be 300 patients enrolled as a control group that are receiving other types of aesthetic surgery.
How the Process Works
If you’re considering breast augmentation using silicone gel breast implants, you might be an ideal candidate for the Glow Study. However, participating in this study requires several steps and is a 10-year commitment. To participate in the study, you must:
- Sign an informed consent which explains the study and what your responsibilities are.
- You will need to complete a short pre-surgery questionnaire.
- After the procedure, you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire every year for 10 years. It only takes 15 minutes!
While the cost of the procedure is not covered by the study, you will be paid for the completion of each questionnaire, including the pre-surgery questionnaire. Participants implanted with MemoryShape® or MemoryGel® will receive the Mentor Enhanced Warranty at no cost.
We would LOVE to be a part of your confidence journey and to have you be a part of the Glow Study with Tim R. Love, MD. For more information about how you can participate, please call us at (405) 751-LOVE(5683).
