I would re-discuss this the intial surgeon. You made need additional bony advancement versus a chin implant. Because the lower lip is retruded bony advancement may be necessary as a pure chin implant can deepen that sulcus between the newly advnanced chin and the lower lip. If you are not comfortable with the initial surgeon you can always ask for a second opinion as well.
