Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

did you do a separate surgery to remove the hardware? how did your surgeon mess up? mine said he performed mine textbook perfectly but he also has an ego the size of an elephant so of course he said that.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

do you have hardware in your jaw and chin? I regret it because I had no functional or cosmetic concerns beforehand, I was manipulated by my surgeon and orthodontist. Hi, no I don't have any hardware. The tightness/stitness is driving me insane at times. There is no solution, only luck and time can ...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

I'm in the exact same situation you described. I'm also 2 years post-op. I am so mad, the surgery made me look worse, but like you said the functional problem of being I constant never-ending pain and discomfort when having a conversation is way worse. I totally relate on the bells palsy thing! act...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

I still have improvents, my chin is improving a lot, it's actually returning to normal starting from below slowing going up. My underlip however is bad, it feels like the lip is frozen like there is no bloodflow. But my chin area is returning to normal! The muscles feel less tightened in one positio...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

I'm pleased to announce that most of my tightness is actually fading, it's only a small area on my chin that is left with this tightness. I do get some tingeling sensation in my lower lip every day. So hang in there, it might actually resolve on it's own. So the tightness is gone for like 50% since ...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

It basicly feels like a sleeping leg. It's super annoying. It feels like my chin and lower lip don't belong to my body, and yet I have full control over it. Next visit at the end of this month I will discuss options with my surgeon... i'm hoping she has some steroid injections or something that magi...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

The biggest challenge for people like us will probably be to find a way to live with this issue. I will try to ignore the feeling and teach and train my brain not focus on the tightness and filter it out. I have experienced many painful and terrible events in my life (such as an eye disease, infecti...
