Lefort 1 upper jaw surgery and lips asymmetry

#1 Postby Redmoon » Sat Aug 12, 2017 9:31 pm

Hi everyone
I had my lefort 1 surgery almost 20 days ago and I noticed that my lips have clear asymmetry
one side the lip is very thin and slightly turn up and the other is in the same size and position pre op
My doctor told me my face still swollen which is true but the asymmetry in my lips is very clear because one side is exactly the same volume and size before the surgery as I said and the other side is very thin with higher position
I don't know how to post picture here from my phone but I hope I explain my case

Hope to hear from you soon because I'm very worried
Thanks

I also notice that I have midline asymmetry, it don't line with my nose or my under jaw

They examin me today after four weeks and told me to visit them again after a month
They took my elastics and told me I don't need them and I should be on soft food diet

My jaws don't close compeletly and they told me with braces my bite should be close
But Will braces fix the midline asymmetric ?
