Ive been considering a chin implant for the past few months. A lot of my friends have gotten breast implants, and I know that theyre made of either silicone or saline. If I decide to get a chin implant, will it be made of one of those two materials?
Chin implants are made of different products and the type of implant used is based upon physician preference. I like silicone implants. The silicone is in a solid formation, not liquid. Silicone implants are inert so they are not recognized by the body as foreign so the chin implant is not rejected. Silicone chin implants have a very low post operative infection rate, they are relatively safe to place, and if a problem should occur, unlike other chin implant material, silicone chin implants are easy to remove.
