How much does it typically cost to remove and reinsert medpor chin implant?

I have had might chin implant for about two years and now that I'm financially capable, I want to have it reinserted because it has definitely shifted since it was originally put it. I no longer live near my original surgeon, so I was wondering how much it would cost to have this done with a new surgeon.

Removing these can be very difficult as they frequently fragment and can disrupt tissue.  I have nothing against these implants as long as t hen never need to be removed, but like any implant them may need that and it can be very destructive.  I would suggest if you get it removed, to replace with a silicone implant that is, in my opinion, much more user friendly and much easier to remove, reshape, bend and secure.
