Smooth vs. Textured Breast Implants




Dr. Rafael Gottenger, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, explains patients can have breast implants with gel that is very smooth inside or less cohesive; they can have an in-between cohesiveness, which is harder; and they can have a cohesive gel, which is much harder. The option will depend on what the patient wants.

There are different shapes, such as the teardrop shape or anatomical shape implant, which is the closest thing to a natural breast; the saline implant; and the silicone implant, which has different profiles.
