Does A Crooked or Large Chin Implant Cause Skin Bunching Under the Chin?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have the same problem your lady seen in pictures has.Case study with the 67 year old female. Does a crooked or larger chin implant make the bunching under chin as seen in picture. My chin looks like this and I have a terrible scar. I have had my chin implant for about 15 years. Just curious as I am doing some research. 

Thank you, 

A: What you are describing can certainly be due to either an asymmetric or overly large chin implant. But the only way to know for sure is to get a cone beam scan (CBCT scan) so the exact position on the bone and size/style of the chin implant will be precisely known.
