It is always nice to have options, and choosing the style of breast augmentation that best suits you is no exemption. Breast implants are available in various shapes, sizes, and types and therefore produce different results. Even though smooth breast implants are a very common choice, understanding more about them can help you stay informed about your options and assist you on the road to achieving your desired new look.
BENEFITS OF SMOOTH IMPLANTS
- Feel soft and natural
- Move more freely
- Less visible implant rippling
- Tend to be long-lasting
- Common and more affordable
WHAT ARE SMOOTH BREAST IMPLANTS?
The name says a lot. Smooth breast implants are smooth to the touch. The outer shell of silicone that incases both saline and silicone implants is slippery and slick in this option. Textured implants, on the other hand, have a rougher, more pebbled silicone shell.
You might wonder why the texture of an implant should matter. Well, anytime anything foreign is inserted, our bodies react. In this reaction, a tissue membrane called a capsule starts to form around the implant.
Due to their slippery shell, smooth implants typically do not adhere to nearby breast tissue. Instead, they are able to move about freely in the capsule, creating a natural breast movement effect.
To be noted, capsular contracture is a risk for both saline and silicone implants. This condition occurs when the capsule tissue hardens and squeezes the implant, causing discomfort and possible distortion
