Chin implant position
It is difficult to respond to your questions with only one frontal photo. However, I have seen chin implants migrate when they are not properly secures. I prefer to fixate chin implants with mini bone screws to prevent this problem. Some diminished sensation in the lip and chin is possible following this surgery but it is usually temporary. I have not seen motor loss or weakness after placing a chin implant. A 3-D CT scan could help show if your implant is positioned properly. Good luck
A dynamic facial expression should be demonstrated at least by video to show the function of the muscle related to the implant. A side view photo of your face is also neccessary for proper assessment of you facial profile, but based from the available photo, you seem to have a button shaped chin implant, and a revision mentoplasty with an anatomic type of implant with compensatory trim should correct the asymmetry and may even improve yoru facial harmony in relation to your jowls and jaw line.
Thank you for the question and photo but an examination is really needed so see some other experts in the area and get opinions
