Chin implant edges palpable - not a clean fit
You should not feel the chin implant edges. This means the implant is not in proper position or it is the wrong implant for your mandible and needs to be adjusted or changed. Please go see your surgeon to discuss.
Chin implant movement
The chin implant is placed against the bone and you should not be able to feel it. It is posible that the implant has migrated or moved. I recently removed a chin implant that had moved to one side and was asymmetrical. In my practice, I secure chin implants with tiny bone screws so that they remain in the correct position. I recommend that you follow-up with your surgeon.

Dear spice, Your implant edges should not be palpable and visible so see your surgeon for a follow up appointment. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
