I am a 45-year-old man with what I consider to be a very weak facial profile. I am considering a chin implant procedure, but I would like to know what the chin implant is composed of.
The chin implant we use is silicone. Silicone is a polymer of siloxane molecules that have been linked together. Depending on how many molecules are linked the silicone can be a liquid, gel or solid. The implant is a solid. It is completely inert in the body and is not at risk or resorption or spread.
