What is the difference between textured and smooth implants?

0

Texturing refers to the surface of the breast implant. Textured implants have a rough surface in an attempt to prevent contracture formation (especially when the implants are placed above the muscle). This does not appear to be relevant in the sub-muscular position. Textured implants may be associated with rippling more than smooth implants.

Textured implants have a textured or “rough” shell, while smooth implants are just smooth on the outside. In the past, textured implants were thought to have a decreased rate of capsular contracture. However, that is not the case today and most plastic surgeons use smooth implants.
