Understanding Textured Breast Implants

Understanding Textured Breast Implants.

During your consultation, Dr. Jacobson will discuss many types of implant options, including textured breast implants. The textured implant surface is thicker and firmer and is a result has less of a natural sophisticated feel to it.

Textured Breast Implants

Textured implants refer to implants that have a roughened surface. Most implants are smooth and have a smooth glistening surface, but a textured implant has a roughened surface. This service at one time was thought to prevent capsular contracture or prevent the tightening of scar tissue around the breast implant which causes deformity at times. We now know that the textured implant does not prevent the capsular contracture and as a result most surgeons have moved back to smooth implant surfaces.

The smooth implant surfaces are much better for the patient because it has a much better feel. The textured implant surface is thicker and firmer and as result has less of a natural sophisticated feel to it.

Dr. Jacobsen uses smooth breast implants whether they are saline or silicone gel the shell or the capsule around the implant is smooth and very thin and as a result has a much better feel to it.

You can see that this breast implant has a roughened texture to it. Therefore, it appears white. If you were to feel this, it would feel like a very soft sandpaper or like cloth.

I had a great experience during my consultation with Dr. J and his staff. They made me feel super comfortable as soon as I walked in even though I was a nervous wreck. Everyone was so sweet, nice and very knowledgeable. What I wanted done Dr. J surprised me with his answer. Which is why I will be scheduling an appointment for a breast augmentation soon with him. Also, I hate talking on the phone so I am able to contact them by text or email with any questions or concerns I have, and with my busy schedule it works out for both parties. I will have to edit this review with the results of my procedure and recovery process. As for a consultation experience, I have no complaints.
