Smooth vs. textured implants
Smooth breast implants have a thinner shell than textured implants, which produces a softer appearance to the overall breast. Smooth implants, commonly referred to as smooth, round implants, move freely within the breast cavity in a greater capacity than textured implants.
Textured implants have a thick, textured outer shell, which helps the implant adhere to the breast tissue. This serves to prevent the implant from rotating within the breast cavity and creating a deformed appearance to the bust.
Both smooth and textured implants are popular options frequently used in breast implant surgery; however, textured breast implants may be preferable for patients with a convex breast bone, sagging breasts, and breasts that bottom-out.
