chin implant material

does anyone know if there are any side effects with hard implants like
for chin made of silicon or whatever material they're made of?
is there a chance of it affecting the system like breast implants?
any info would be great thanks!

Hi nature girl: I don't know the answer to your question, but have you already spoken with a doctor about this? If so, you could ask him. If not, just do a search on the web and you are bound to find endless articles on chin implants. I was under the impression that implants for the chin were of a much harder material than silicone, but I may be mistaken.

I wish you luck. The way my luck has gone this year, I'd end up with a chin like Jim Carrey in "Me, Myself and Irene". lol.

Re: chin implant material

Thanks... I asked at my doctors office and they said it was made of hard silicon which is safe and i know can't leak like breast implants, but was jsut wondering about any effects anyway. i'm very much a health nut and don't want to compromise my health.
