I am thinking of having a medium sized chin implant removed that was placed 2 months ago. I have been reading that the left behind scar capsule can cause deformations after months or years of the removal. How common are the deformations and to what extent? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2052662 , this abstract stated that out of 10 patients, 9 had deformations after the removal.
