Can a chin implant be removed or replaced?


My chin implant was inserted seven years ago. Can this chin implant be removed or replaced? If not, are other options available?


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.
