Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Wondering if you’ve consulted anyone regarding mentalis resuspension? I’ve had all hardware removed and nerve repair surgery that made no difference in chin cramping/pulling.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Is the tightness related to your mentalis muscle?

Re: Recommendations?

Gunson is no longer Arnett and Gunson. The name is misleading. Dr. Arnett retired a few years ago. I had surgery with Dr. Gunson and have so many very serious complications. The price tag doesn’t predict the outcome. My initial consult was very impressive. 3 hours!!. When I returned 2 days before my...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Sara12345678 Sara123456789 Chin- from day one post surgery, my chin would contract in a ball at times and pull. Left side was and still is numb, but the numbness was nothing compared to pulling. After plate and screw removal, this actually got worse. What I have learned after this last surgery is th...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

CloudyAngel Sara12345678 Just want to give an update. I had chin plate screw removal in October.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Its hard to tell if the surgery made things worse; it definitely did not make it better. I also found out that I've been living with an abscessed tooth for 6 months and have to have a root canal. Not sure how so many dentists, orthodontists and the surgeon missed the infection.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

I’m sorry I’ve been out of the loop. My Chin/plate removal was done in the office. It was a horrible experience and unfortunately the awful tightness and pulling is no better. I’m wondering if the surgical fractures are healed properly and also if the mentalis muscle is damaged. I will see surgeon i...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Cloudy angel. I am thinking the same thing. Perhaps I’m feeling all of the plates and screws . An adverse reaction of some sort. How can they diagnose?

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Sara123456789. I am so sorry you are going through this at such a young age. I think it would be beneficial to have someone assess the nerve. A nerve can be repaired within a certain timeframe and you have your age on your side. I went to one of the best surgeons in the US, but surgery is surgery. I...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

sara123456789-- I had a very large advancement, 19mm lower jaw and 12mm upper jaw plus genioplasty. Im also in my 50s and am assuming my nerve could not tolerate that large of an advancement. the surgeon repaired the best he could but could not connect the edges. I was hopeful to get some feeling ba...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Cloudy angel-I’ve just recently discussed the tightness in my chin. I also feel like I’m horse bridled. The doctor suggested steroid injections to break up scar tissue and removing the plates and screws. What therapy did you have for scarring and did it help?
