First you must determine if the implant is infected. You should see a plastic surgeon or and have the "zit" treated which may require drainage and/or antibiotics, etc and determine if the implant is the source of infection. If that is the case then the only solution is to have the implant removed and not replaced. That will give you the opportunity to evaluate your appearance and determine the need for replacement of the chin implant after you have fully recovered and the infection is resolved. Removing a chin implant can create a droopy chin or contour irregularities but this won't be known until the implant has been removed.
