Hello - I had a large chin implant placed through the inside of my mouth three days ago. Immediately after surgery, I could feel the implant shape through my skin on the left side, especially the end of the wing. Also, the entire left side of my lip is numb. The implant is flush to the bone on the right and the right side of my lip has feeling. I have a follow-up with my doctor in two days. What are the important questions to ask as I pursue getting this corrected? How soon can I expect this to be revised?
Chin implant palpable on left side. What are my options?
