Texture implant is a type of breast implant.
Breast implantation is generally done for enlarging the size of the human breast. Sometimes the breast implantation is also done for reconstructing the shape and size of the breast. This process of breast implantation is also called as breast augmentation or breast enlargement. It is observed by the American society of plastic that the breast augmentation is the third most commonly done cosmetic surgery.
There are basically two types of breast implants namely the Saline implant and other is the silicone gel. This classification is dependent on the material type that is filled in the
Implant. Depending on the structure, shape and size the implants are of a variety of types like the round implant, the anatomical implant, the smooth implant and the textured implant.
The textured type of implants have a rough outer surfaces compared to the other type of implants. The roughness is introduced because that creates cohesion between the implants and the tissues surrounding the implants. This also helps the textured implant to maintain a proper vertical alignment with the body. There is a phenomenon called as the capsular contracture. In this case there are tissues that grow around the breast and make the breast to squeeze the new implant. It is because of this that the implant becomes harder than it actually was.
The basic reason behind developing the textured type of implant was to overcome the problem of capsular contracture. One more advantage accompanied with the textured type of implant is that they do not face the problem for positioning the implant. The point with the textures type of implant is that they face the problem of rippling. Also there are no strong evidences that show the problem of capsular contracture to be reduced. Also the cost factor is important here. The texture type of breast implant is more costly than the smooth type of implants. The textured type of implants also faces the problem of leaking.
Finally any type of implant is associated with some advantages and disadvantages. It depends on the women who have to undergo the implantation to decide which implant to go for according to her suitability.
