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.

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

  • review rating 5  Thanks Dr. Jacobsen and staff. Warming atmosphere friendly informative and caring doctor. This was my first visit and doctor took the time to explain and answer my questions. Nothing was rushed. Staff greeted me nicely with smiles and patience. It took me courage to show up since I’m nervous about having a surgery to begin with. They helped me feel welcomed and relaxed. Thank goodness their office portal was working so no double work to provide my medical information and resigning papers.

  • review rating 5  I had many complications with my body healing from surgery, and Dr. Jacobsen demonstrated patience, resourcefulness, vigilance, and compassion. Here are a few specific things he did to help with my healing: he had me email him twice a day with pictures of my incisions so he could monitor, provide feedback and directions, and adjust his care for me as needed; he was always quick to respond to my emails and questions; he met me in his office on a Saturday during a holiday weekend to care for me during an important time in my healing; he provided regular and specific directions to my husband as he cared for me at home with the complications. His compassion and reassuring nature were valued as I put my confidence in his expertise to help me through this difficult time. I appreciate him greatly and give him the highest rating with no hesitations. His staff were also extremely helpful. Don't be bothered about calling the office and leaving a message (when someone doesn't answer) or emailing the office; they are very quick to respond with a phone call or email and this is part of their daily business routines, which allows them to care for their patients in person AND to those reaching out to them for miscellaneous reasons. This was different at first for me but I quickly adjusted, understanding their reasons and seeing their quick responses to me. The staff also worked seamlessly with my insurance company, a medical equipment company who came to my home three times a week to monitor and help with the healing process, and with the needed paperwork for my employment. I was always treated with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and excellent care.

  • review rating 5  I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. J to anyone in need of a Plastic Surgeon! I had a breast augmentation and everything from the initial contact to pre operation, to the VERY successful surgury, to post operation and very caring recovering...it was all such a positive experience. The staff and Dr. J himself were so helpful and answered all of my questions promptly, putting me at ease. Even 10 days after my Surgery when I had concerns, Dr. J responded to my email quickly, even though it was on a holiday. Choose Dr. J for you plastic surgery needs. You will NOT be sorry!

  • review rating 5  Dr. J is the Bomb! My story is long and my healing is still in the works, but without Dr. Jacobsen, I would still be far from being "hole" again, literally. 8 surgeries in 6 months, 4 before I even met Dr.J, and his A-mazing staff! A new year is starting and so is my new life! He is patient, caring, and his surgical expertise, healed a giant chest wound, that refused to heal. Thank you for helping me get my life back! You will always be in my heart.. and in and around, and under my skin that protects my miraculously beating heart. Thank you Dr. Jacobsen, and the many doctors, nurses, caring people, who have touched my life during the last 7 months!

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen and the entire staff are amazing! My 44 year old breast implants had been rupture for probably years without me knowing and an MRI confirmed. After consulting with four other surgeons, I chose Dr. Jacobsen because he is so kind and two of my friends were very happy with outcomes of their surgeries. My plan was to have the implants removed, a lift, and absolutely no new implants! Well, two days before my surgery my husband and friends convinced me that I would not be happy with my appearance. I caved and elected to have an implant exchange. My final words to Dr. Jacobsen were to make sure I wasn’t too large! Dr. Jacobsen delivered and I have smaller and higher breast that change my entire profile. The final result is amazing!! Dr. Jacobsen and his lovely staff have been professional, caring, patient, and an absolute joy to work with:)

  • review rating 5  My wife recently had cosmetic surgery by Dr. Jacobsen (Dr. J as he is known). Several other physicians we know recommended him. He is very compassionate and caring and has a very easy to navigate website that very educational regarding his services and pricing. The experience was very positive and she and I are very satisfied with the outcome at this early two week post surgery date. He does his surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center Outpatient Surgery Center in Phoenix and it is obvious that the nursing and other staff there hold Dr. J in high regard. He is a humble man who really wants to learn how he can help you. There are posters and awards on display in his office that indicate he is well respected in the greater Phoenix area. His office staff are very thorough and quick to respond to emailed questions.

  • review rating 5  I went to Dr. Jacobsen a few weeks ago for surgery on a keloid scar I had on my chest that was ugly and slightly painful. He removed that awful scar and it looks great now, it’s only a few weeks but I can already see a huge difference in the healing process. The procedure was also painless and he was great!
