Can a chin implant be removed or replaced?
The answer is yes. Then you have several options. You can replace it, or not, or have surgery to move your chin forward.
I is best to have a consultation, to be examined and to discuss your treatment alternatives accordingly.

A chin implant can last 15-20 years or more. It usually doesn't need to be removed unless it becomes displaced or infected. It can last 20 years or longer.
