Synthetic enhancements are similar to servo enhancements as they are used to replace existing biological material with more capable, non-biological substance. This form of enhancement may come in many shapes and forms. Unlike servo enhancements, synthetic enhancements do not require the removal of limbs to be implemented. Rather, they may be implanted into the body of the subject. A common example of this is that of synthetic muscle tissue and bone. This is achieved by stripping away existing muscle and replacing it with slightly stronger muscle. While it does increase the user’s strength, it is a long and expensive procedure. It is not uncommon for synthetic enhancements to outright replace their biological counterparts like servos. These processes increase many of the physical capabilities of the user, however are much more expensive than an implant. The reason for this is large sections of the subject’s bone system must be augmented as well to be able to support the new abilities of the subject.
Socially synthetic enhancements are seen as an oddity. Depending on the form in which they take, they may not even be noticeable without close inspection. Many synthetically enhanced individuals choose to have either artificial or grown biological skin to cover their abnormalities. While on the other hand, some choose to show of these irregularities as a status signal.
