Moles can come back even after removal. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in mole removals and lasers.  Best, Dr. Emer

Thank you for your question.  If a mole is not completely removed there is the possibility that it returns.  Have your plastic surgeon evaluate your chin to rule out an infection and to offer definite treatment recommendations.  Hope this helps.
