In brief: Compression

Sometimes the implant can be inflamed from old or new infection, compression on a nerve or chronic inflammation from trying to be rejected.

In brief: Pain from implant

There are many reasons, but mainly shifting of the implant.
Another reason is pressure on the nerve. You should contact your surgeon for advise.

In brief: Chin Implant

The implant may be rubbing the sensory nerve which is adjacent to the implant.
Consult with the surgeon who did your operation. Removal is sometimes necessary.
