Textured vs smooth breast implants?

Breast implants can have a smooth outer surface or a textured outer surface. The rationale for the textured outer surface is that it potentially could help minimize the risk of developing a capsular contracture. The truth is that the literature does not support this concept in many studies, especially when the implants are placed in a submuscular pocket.  Furthermore, textured implants tend to not move as freely in the pocket as a smooth implant.
