Chin Implants Rarely Develop Capsular Contracture

Every chin implant, like all implants placed in the body, develop a scar capsule. But the concept of a capsular contracture for a chin implant is not a likely phenomenon as may occur in breast implants. This is because chin implants are solid and not easily compressed and displaced like a fluid-filled implant would be.
