    All implants used in Australia must meet strict guidelines set by theTherapeutic Goods Association.  Implants with a micro polyurethane coating are claimed to reduce the rate capsular contracture however if capsular contracture does occur these types of implants are typically difficult to remove.  Discuss the pros and cons of your implants with your plastic surgeon.
