Chin Implant: Q&AAsk a Question
Chin Implant Revision Vs. Removal?
At 8 weeks from initial surgery, I feel the medium silastic chin used was too large for my face - sulcus looks too deep. I am not big on surgery and only want to do this one more time. If I downsize smaller, my doc says the old scar pocket will collapse and form around the small implant, while other docs feel it is imperative to remove the prior scar pocket?? My doc stitches the implants in, but they are not secured by screws. If I choose complete removal, what are chances of deformity?
