Chin Implant + Revision, Still Not Happy with Low Placement
My original chin implant was placed too high and...

My original chin implant was placed too high and it was too big for my face (wings were unnecessary). The doc agreed to fix it. Instead of putting a new smaller implant where we discussed, during the operation the doc decided to re-use the old implant w/o wings.(Can he do that?!) He now placed it too low, contrary to our discussion. The lower part of my face looks long and flat, w/ projection down, not forward.
What are my options? Any chance the implant will get pulled up during healing?
If plastic surgery is not absolutely critical for you, don't do it. Apparently, it's more difficult to get the placement of implants right than it seems from the web/literature review. Plastic surgery is an expensive way to learn to like yourself.
The doc just didn't listen. He did whatever he wanted, even though I didn't agree with his aesthetic ideas (we're not even talking about clinical ideas, just matters of taste).
