I had chin implant and chin lipo 6 weeks ago and I am not happy with my results at all. I can feel the tip of the implant at the bottom of my jaw.


I had chin implant and chin lipo 6 weeks ago and I am not happy with my results at all. I can feel the tip of the implant at the bottom of my jaw. In addition it looks like the surgeon overdid the lipo on my chin and I now have this big indention right by the tip of the implant. At 6 weeks postop is it too early to have the implant removed and will I looked disfigured more when the implant is removed?

Again without posted photos very hard to advise. Sure you can remove the chin implant. But for the lipo of the submental might be hard to correct. (more)

Right now I would be happy with the way it was before the surgery. After 6 weeks is this possible? My surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. You can believe that I checked before the surgery. I was having second thoughts anyway and definitely wouldn't have let a non-board certified physician do the surgery. Is this a complication that most "board certified plastic surgeon" would never make? Just curious cuz I don't know if I trust him now to fix the problem :(
