Medpor Chin Implant

Postby bbabymilo » Wed, 14 Jul 2010 9:05 pm

Hi. :)

I have done rhinoplasty and otoplasty with a Taiwan surgeon. Now, I am considering chin argumentation.

I was told that Chin implant like medpor requires 2 tiny titanium screws to secure its position. They can be remove in the future if you wish to be ( after the medpor implant has been tightly secured). If you wish to remove screws in future, the screws will leave 2 holes on the chin bone. However, the bone will grow and cover the holes. Sliding genioplasty requires more than 2 tiny titanium screws and the procedures is to cut the chin bone and move it forward which can cause quite a bit of swelling. While for silicone chin implant is not recommended because it get shifted easily over time.

I sincerely hope that those who did medpor chin implant can reply me here or privately PM me as I want to find out more from your personal experience.

I would really appreciate if anyone can reply me. :(

I think anyone wanting a 'chin implant' seriously needs help.

Considered spending your money on psychiatry instead?

medpor and porex introduces a foreign body, and foreign body can always have FBR after some time.. even with inert and biocompatible materials..

best to use autologous and do sliding.
.
further, medpor and porex is much harder to remove than silicone.. with silicone there can be long chin / witch chin deformity after removal, more so for medpor and porex..

in short, your chin can be ruined ( droopy, mentalis muscle bunching) after removal.

but wouldn't sliding come with it's own problems that may be worse compared to a simple implant? Even if we ignore the higher cost, there's a higher risk of nerve damage, longer healing time, more screws and wires to secure the bone and revision is probably going to be much harder than removing a medpor implant.

what's the risk like for foreign body rejection?

i think what boil18 was trying to say is, best to not introduce foreign materials to your body and just use your body's natural own materials.

how should we get the necessary shape? i.e the nice extruding chin to counter the receding one....

i didnt do research into medpor but it seems plausible that the foreign body ( any foreign body ) can cause

1) calfications
2) chronic inflammation - aging.
3) systemic reaction if non-biocompatible
4) infection, short or long-term
5) removal is difficult
6) encapsulation
7) integration into matrix in the case of medpor.

Please stop being sarcastic. There are reasons why people need Chin implants.

Its because of problems like imbalance jaws that people need to go for chin implants. If you dont know anything, then dont comment. Cause u will not understand the pain of not being able to close your mouth fully due to jaw issues.

To all,

For myself, i have a receding chin issue, plus my protruding front teeth, my side profile is kinda horrible due to the receding chin.

The best thing to do is of course go for an orthognathic surgery, but the process is too long and too expensive.

Hence, surgeons have suggested me to either go for

1) Genioplasty
2) Chin Implant

Seriosuly, im considering between these 2 options and 1 surgeon has suggested me using medpor for the implant. But really, i would rather for a genioplasty and will be heading to Taiwan in Nov or Oct.

Thanks for all the reply. :)


I would like to ask if is it possible to use mandible bone for chin?
