Smooth or textured breast implant surfaces in Arizona.

Breast implant shells come in either a smooth or textured surface. And here is the difference. As a natural reaction to any device placed in the body, scar tissue will form around the breast implant surface, creating a capsule. In some women, the capsule can tighten and squeeze the implant. This occurrence is called capsular contracture.

Textured breast implants were designed to reduce the chance of capsular contracture. Some information in the literature on small numbers of patients suggests that surface texturing reduces the chance of severe capsular contracture, but clinical information from studies of a large number of women with Mentor breast implants shows no difference in the likelihood of developing capsular contracture with textured implants compared to smooth-surfaced implants.
