After removal of the implant you need to wait till all the swelling and the scar has softened .

Also the muscles that control the lower lip movement settle down. If there was an injury to the muscle or nerves that supply the muscles, some function may come back some may not

Given the short amount of time that your implant was in, it is very likely that it will return closely to a facsimile of your preoperative appearance.
