Discuss with surgeon: • silicone implants • expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (eptfe): • polyethylene implants • hydroxyapatite implants • bone grafts • cadaveric bone grafts • autologous tissue grafts (excluding fat) • autologous fat transfer (fat grafting) • cadaveric tissue grafts & cultured tissue • allodermallograft • apligraft sliding genioplasty is also an option without using implants.

Silicone or other : There are many types of chin implants available, including silicone or other substances. Ask your surgeon and he/she will consult with you, and discuss the type of implant to use in your individual case.
