Smile change and Numbness after Chin Implant

Dear seleste21, I would be concerned that you still have numbness and weakness in the chin area that you have some nerve intervention with the chin implant. I suggest revisiting your surgeon and explain your concerns you may need the implant removed and opt for a different style and size. Not a fan of mesh implants. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
