Uneven Chin Implant
If you are having issues with an uneven or malpositioned chin implant, I would consider having it removed. It would be important to know the type of implant (silicone vs medpore vs gortex). Silicone implants are easily removable while the other types can be quite difficult. It is important to know how the implant was secured. If a screw was used, this will be important information. For all of these reasons, I would suggest that you get a copy of your operative report.
Another consideration would be to undergo a CT scan to identify the location of the chin implant to verify the placement.
I would suggest a consultation with a surgeon to help guide you through these many options.
I hope this helps.
Chin implant placed unevenly
An examination of you would really be needed to determine if your chin implant is placed unevenly and if it might be causing the muscular and nerve issues you are having. I would recommend contacting the surgeon who placed your chin implant so that you can be evaluated in person.
