Mersilene is a knitted plastic mesh material most commonly used to fix abdominal hernias. It has been historically used in facial surgery where it has been used as a chin implant. The mesh material is rolled onto itself, shaped, and then sewn together to create the implant. Because the implant is a mesh, it has lots of holes in it for tissue ingrowth. The few surgeons who use mersilene do it because they like to fashion their own implants and can do so at a lower cost than buying other off-the-shelf implants. - See more at: http://exploreplasticsurgery.com/the-composition-of-aesthetic-facial-implants/#sthash.wkbALE0j.dpuf
