Hi,Arun,thanks for query.Normally artificial implant for this are not available.In normal case this loss does not lead much of functional impairment.Still if the scar or something looks bothersome to you,please take advise from a plastic surgeon who can help you with this.What ever has been done is fine.
wishing you good health.
