   These are still good options for females seeking a pointy chin as you are.  They play a role just like anything else.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

 Button style Chin implants  went out of style over 20 years ago due to the very unnatural look. These type of implants tend to accentuate a very pointy chin. We have removed many of them performed elsewhere because of patient dissatisfaction with these type of implants. We also recommend Silastic implants  not Medpor.

Button style chin implant

Button style implants have gone out of style because they can leave the chin too pointy. They are still used. Using silastic will allow your surgeon to specifically carve your implant to fit your wishes. I like silastic much better than medpore. If there is a problem then medipore can be a real problem to remove.
