Chin Implant Removal

You can most certainly just have the implant removed. Depending on the type of implant used will dictate what side effects or down side to removal there may be. For instance, a silastic implant will be easy to remove and likely have no long term side effects. Other types of implants though may require mroe extensive removal surgery and can cause some minor aesthetic problems. It is best to speak with your surgeon about your concerns.
