Dr. Jeffords was selected to attend a Mentor advanced training course which was held on April 18, 2015. Selected participants were flown to Mentor's manufacturing facility in Dallas, Texas. The participants received lectures on new techniques and innovations for breast surgery. They also were given tours of the manufacturing plant and even allowed to participate in manufacturing an implant in their simulation laboratory. Mentor, a division of Johnson and Johnson, is the only breast implant that is manufactured in the USA. Dr. Jeffords has used Mentor implants since 2002.
