Are there different types of implants that can be used for chin augmentation? What are they and are some better than others?
There are several different implants available for chin augmentation. Implants are made of silicone, Gortex, Medpor, and likely other materials. I prefer a silicone chin implant for several reasons. The silicone chin implant feels natural, it is inert – which means the body will not reject the chin implant as a foreign body, it rarely becomes infected, and if for some reason the chin implant needs to be removed, it can be done easily.
