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, and how likely is it that my body will reject the implant.

The chin implant I use is composed of silicone. It is well tolerated. For the individual who is hesitant to have an implant, you may consider an injectable filler, such as Radiesse, to provide chin augmentation.
