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.
You can see here the difference between a smooth implant and a textured implant.
