Do implants have long-term negative consequences?

This is why implant surgery is not performed on teenagers
Breast implants do not typically have long-term consequences unless you choose an implant that is too large for your body to accommodate (thinning of the breast skin, sagging, etc.). For facial implants, the chin implant is a great option for people. I personally don't do cheek or jaw implants as I feel they may become more noticeable when you are much older, and we have an excellent array of filler options to produce excellent results without the need for an implant.
I recommend consulting with a local/regional plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
