Medpor or Silicone Jaw Implants?
I have had a number of consultations with my maxillofacial surgeon about jaw implants and he says that Medpor is the better of the two and that silicone has a much higher rejection rate, and would probably have to come out at some point. Is this true? Because I hear many scare stories of how difficult Medpor is too remove? And which in your opinion gives the better end result?
