Had excessive internal scar tissue. Felt tightness and burning. Had cortisol shots, three rounds. Removed after 4 months. Pressure from pillow makes it tighten up. When will it be fully healed so I am not sore and does not tighten up when I sleep?

Once the implant is removed, you should not experience a long recovery. Some pain may persist, but gradually resolve. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Healing after chin implant removal
Full healing of the chin area could take up to a year for all the scar tissue and healing to settle down back to its normal anatomical state.
