Re: Can anyone hear liquids drip inside their moith?

That sounds pretty disturbing... Where is the fluid dripping from/to?

Re: Happy after double jaw surgery?

Yesssss!!! :rawk: Most of the satisfied people just go about their merry lives afterwards. Usually people only stick around on here if they’re continuing to have issues. Otherwise they simply move on :)

Plate removal

Anyone out there had any or all of their plates removed? I can feel them in there and it’s pretty annoying. How’d it feel after plate removal? Back to your pre-op normal?

Re: Sliding Genioplasty Post Op troubles 8 months on

The last post was 6 years ago. Rather than bringing it back from the dead and trying to get a response from people who are probably long since active, you should really just make a new thread with whatever question you have.

Re: Need last minute help! Surgery in 2 days

Yes, the 7mm advancement should help, unless your apnea is due to other issues. In fact, studies have shown that advancements as small as 3mm have a significant impact on sleep apnea. Good luck!

Re: Please help. Terrible chronic pain. 10yrs post op sliding genioplasty.

It sounds like they did a thorough check of your heart, but how are your lungs and the rest of your circulatory system? Are you/were you a smoker? Do you exercise regularly? Past drug use? I’m not a doctor, but to me a lot of your symptoms sound like a life hard lived catching up to you, completely ...

Re: MMA

My nose wasn’t crooked at all post-op. At least not any more so than it was pre-op :lol: There may be something to your regressing after the archbars came off due to mouth breathing. If you don’t hold your chin in the new position, the muscles will tend to pull it back to its previous position. Rest...

Re: Thoughts on my profile?

I think you’d be looking at a fairly sharp mentolabial angle following a chin augmentation or implant. Of course, you could get fillers to help with that if you wanted. Or you could just leave everything the same :) I gained a total 10mm additional chin projection from my surgery. About half of that...

Re: Permanent Numbness

To be fair, it seems reasonably likely to me that the surgeon did learn something from the experience (perhaps a lesson on how careful you have to be when severing the mandible) and just didn’t want to share that with a potential patient/customer lest the patient become wary and seek out another sur...

Re: Thoughts on my profile?

I see the overjet and lack of projection in your chin, but they appear to be within the norms of the regular population. What I’m saying is that they’re not ideal, but you still look like a completely normal guy. If it bothers you that much, you could consider doing a chin augmentation or implant an...

You have no tooth show at all when smiling as big as you can? Do you have pics you'd be willing to share?

Re: Double jaw surgery-SLEEPING

Should be fine, michgrand. Just do your best not to and you'll be ok. There are plates and screws holding your bones in place and a little gentle pressure won't change that. That soreness when you accidentally slept on it is normal.

Re: MMA

I was still breathing through my mouth for a few months post-op until I made a conscious decision to close my lips throughout the day. It took a LOT of practice and several times a day I would catch myself breathing through my mouth again. BUT practice made perfect and after a couple weeks of this I...

Re: Upper jaw moves up and down still?

There was a person who got their surgery at the same time as I did and had a similar issue. How tightly were you banded post-op? Did you clench a lot? When did you start with solid foods?
