i've had a chin implant for 8 years now and i have bumped my chin on the external incision scar. my scar swelled as soon as i had the injury and it is now the next day and i have a lump that is just a bit smaller than pea sized. I don't think i have moved the implant (it looks normal) and i'm not in much discomfort, just the injury site is painful...what kind of damage may i have done?
