stiff chin/lower lip

For those who had genioplasty/BSSO, when does the tightness and pulling sensation go away in the chin and lower li?. I can open my mouth fine, but I can't move my lower lip as freely as before. It feels like its being pulled down by my chin and when I move it to speak, my lower lip feels resistance/...

Re: Unbearable tightness in chin

Thanks for your replies. The tightness doesn't just feel like normal muscle tightness. It limits my lower lip mobility and makes speaking feel uncomfortable. For example when I say "oo" or pucker my lips it feels like an elastic band that has been stretched. Same feeling when I move my lower lip in ...

Re: Sliding Genioplasty Post Op troubles 8 months on

I'm having the same sensations as you are describing. I had BSSO and (reverse) genioplasty ~7 months ago. My chin is very stiff, tight and heavy. It feels like my chin puts pressure on my lower lip which makes it constantly feel tugged at, which is especially uncomfortable whenever I speak? Do you f...
