What is the difference between a Smooth and Textured implant?
Implants may be smooth or have a textured surface. The textured implant surface feels almost like sandpaper. The textured surface has been shown to decrease capsular contracture. In addition, it minimizes the amount of movement of the implant. This is a particular advantage if one is having implants replaced. One disadvantage of texturing is an increased incidence of wrinkling of the implants and a slightly higher deflation rate. The textured surface is not palpable through the skin.
