In addition to the materials being used, if the implant is being fixed.
Where the incision will be placed: also discuss with your surgeon, infection, nerve irritation [marginal mandibular nerve, mental nerve], bleeding, implant rejection, bone re-absorption by implant pressure as well as the number of implant procedures that your prospective surgeon has completed.

In brief: Chin implant

You should ask the material being used, if the implant is being fixed to none or placed in a pocket, and where the incision will be.
Also check the cost as it is not usually covered by insurance.
