I had a chin implant 11 days ago and the swelling is basically non existent now but onw of the wings is sticking out. I had thought that the wing was getting less noticeable but someone mentioned it today so now I don't know. Was it put in wrong or will it go dowb

One end of chin implant possibly sticking out

You should contact your surgeon to be examined because that is the only way to tell if your chin implant is in the correct position or not.  It is possible that what you see is only swelling, and if so, this would eventually go down with time.
