Polyurethane implants

Polyurethane implants are silicone implants coated in a unique velvet-like shell and hence their popular name is "velvet grafts".

This polyurethane coating creates a special roughness around breast implants that contribute to the implant's attachment to the body's tissues. In fact, the tissues of the body "grow" into the polyurethane shell and place it firmly in place. As a result of the adhesion of the walls of the implant to the body and the growth of body tissue into the velvet envelope, the implant is fixed and the capsule formed around it is very thin and minimal. Most of the usual silicone implants, even those with a rough shell, do not cling to the tissues of the body.
