Could a Chin Implant Removal and Bone Rasping Have Caused Muscle Damage?

Last week I had a chin implant removed & replaced w 1cc of radiesse. Due to slight implant bone erosion, 1 side of my chin was rasped. Now when I smile, it looks like the Depressor Anguli Oris pulls out of place & it forms an obvious indentation. Could it be permanently damaged or detached?

Chin implant removal

This sounds quite complicated and it is difficult to know what has transpired. Time will tell if the muscle has been permanently damaged. I am not certain that there is much which can be done. IF the muscle contraction is causing problems, botox could help.
