No such thing as organism tissue, if you have a new swelling next to an implant it must be evaluated by someone with experience in chin implants.

"Organism tissue " is not a medical term. Only your doctor, who examined you and reviewed your history can tell you what is going on with your chin and the possible infection.
If you have no answers to your question, then you need to seek a second opinion
