Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

I relate to everything you said above. No one understands how isolating it is to have underwent a huge procedure and end up way worse than you started. If this discomfort persists for the rest of my life, then my quality of life has been greatly diminished. I am 23 and should have my whole life ahea...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Nochokin--I feel the exact same sensations. How was your nerve ruptured? My surgeon won't admit to any nerve damage, to him the surgery went "technically perfect". Well if this is what technically perfect feels like, then I don't even want to think what a bad outcome for him is...... I am in pain co...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

For me, my problem isn't opening. I can open wide. Its stiffness in the lower lip and chin that makes speaking feel terrible.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

yes I do have a double chin because of the surgery, but also when I talk the chin pad does not feel like it is supported by bone, it sags all the way down :( When I talk my lower lip and chin feel very uncomfortable...it stiffens up very uncomfortably. My lips also move crooked when I speak.

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Yes I have noticed my chin sags downward :( I have no idea why my surgeon did a "setback genioplasty" on me. There was nothing wrong with my chin. How is the feel of your mouth since you removed the chin plate. I wonder if my chin plate is getting "stuck" to the chin muscle overtime I talk because t...

Re: Am I a candidate for lower jaw surgery?

Is your overbite causing you any functional issues? Your x-ray looks a lot like mine pre-surgery. Yes, there is an overbite, but you have a nice face structure that camouflages it so it isn't too noticeable. Personally I regret my surgery, the risks outweighed the marginal benefit of having a better...

Re: Oral Surgeon in Toronto, Ontario

I know there is a girl on youtube named "Tierra Incognito" who had surgery with Dr. C and documented her recovery. I love her aesthetic results and it appears she escaped with only a little nerve damage which doesn't affect her quality of life. I would get a consult with Dr. C regardless. I had my s...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

aww thank you. Im a year and 5 months out, I can't believe I have this many problems still. Im just really scared this tension is being caused by nerve damage and there is nothing I can do. Also, there has been no benefit to the surgery in my case. I would have been 100% better without it. The only ...
