Chin Implant: Q&AAsk a Question
With Lupus, is It Ok to Have a Chin Implant Put In, As Lupus Doesn't Like Foreign Objects?
My Rhuemy said it was okay for me to have rhinoplasty, but I have not asked about a chin implant. Diagnosed in November, I am doing quite well with my Lupus, I now function as i have before. I take plaquenil 200mg 2x a day. I have looked online and have heard that lupus does not like foreign objects. I don't want to take a chance if my body will reject the implant. Is it possible that I will get an infection, or rejection of some kind?
