Yes.  There is no problem with getting treated with Exilis and having a chin implant.  If you are a good candidate, you will see great results.  Good luck. 

Enjoy.

Hope this helps.

The radiofrequency energy from Exilis will have no negative effect on a solid silastic chin implant in terms of melting it or changing its shape. The internal temperatures simply do not get that high. Conversely, having a bone-based implant will not affect how Exilis may work on the subcutaneous tissues or the skin above it.
