Asymmetry after Chin Implant
Liposuction would never melt a silicone implant. You don't mention when the implant was placed but you may have temporary asymmetrical post-op swelling. As long as you feel but cannot see the difference I would not worry about it at this time. Share your concerns with your surgeon who is there to examine you.
