These can have a silicone or saline filling and a textured or smooth surface. Textured implants have been more frequently used due to their capacity of impairing moving and developing capsular contracture. Breast associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma has been correlated with the presence of textured implants even if the pathogenesis is not entirely understood and other factors might be involved.
