Breast Implants… smooth or textured.

A recent journal article published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery addresses an unresolved problem in breast augmentation surgery, Capsular Contracture.

What the paper concluded was nothing new. Textured implants had lower contracture rates than smooth breast implants. Patients preferred the feel of smooth implants. Implants placed under the muscle, saline and silicone, have lower contracture rates.

In my Louisville Breast Augmentation practice I more often than not prefer to use smooth implants. Placement is determined by your anatomy and preference.
