What are textured implants?

0

In the 1970’s capsular contracture was a much bigger problem than it is today. It was found that by adding texture to the shell of the implant the capsule that formed around the implant was much thinner and softer. It was found that the texture caused tissue ingrowth which broke up the collagen that formed around the shell. Textured implants still have a slightly lower rate of capsular contracture today but the advantage is not as significant because the smooth shells have been improved dramatically.
