I wish I saw this thread before my operation. I'm now 8 months post-op (6mm advancement) and I still have tightness in my chin. Not much numbness left and I don't feel any pain but it's quite uncomfortable. I'll wait a bit longer before I try anything. Some links that might be useful for others:

Im 16 months post of lower jaw surgery my symptoms is exactly like sara I haven’t done genioplasty though. Its severe tightness and very noticeable when i speak ibdo also have nerve damage ian but the numbness is not sever it doesn’t bother me . Im not sure wat causes the tightness its like pulling sensation and its very noticeable to others people tend to stare at it sometimes they feel uncomfortable when i speak it gave me anxiety and depression i cant speak to others because of the appearance it pulls down my chin lips and like i have paralysis. I didn’t remove my screws I think the issue is deeper than this. I massaged my scar tissue didn’t work i had botox it worsen the situation i had acupuncture didnt work. I had another consultation the dr said that i need genioplasty because he said i do have slight receding chin and it might improve my problem. I dont know about this though i hope u guys find the solution because i think we do have same issue .

has anyone solved this problem? I believe it is due to the sutured chin muscle too much. down . sometimes also facial lengthening that does not allow a normal closing of the lips and therefore under stress. I have a very low internal scar since the operation, so even the lip too much cannot rise and I continually have this feeling I have stretched the tissues of the lip and chin downwards .. I am going to the link of a doctor from Korea who explains at what height the chin muscle should be sutured. in a few months I will have a height reduction genioplasty and a suture of the muscle of the chin and of the upper tissues. at rest the lips remain open about 4 mm.

I didn't have any lengthening of the chin and actually had a chin reduction. So I'm very confused why I'm experiencing this. It has ruined my life.

how far away is your inside scar from your incisors? Could it be that your chin muscle may be reconnected too low?
my mentolabial fold has dropped since before the surgery and this shows that the chin muscle is resuspended too low compared to my initial situation and the lips are only able to tighten under exertion and I have a continual impediment to speaking, chewing and continuous tension and hardening

Dear phantast,

Have just come accros this forum, and reading your added comments just feel like one big recognition of events! I'm not having any chin plates (the one placed there after jaw fracture was removed during my bsso) and the feeling of tightness and a pulling lower lip/chin has been increasing since nerves are back at work...

When going through yr messages, I do get the impression things have improved for you, yet then you got a total setback almost a year post-op?! How had this been developed again, ever since?!

Thanks for your information, I'm very curious to read so I know a bit better what to expect.. at this point, 2,5 months post-op, I feel the tightness is only getting worse. I notice it all throughout the day. If fat grafts/massaging/muscle reattachment would be manageable and lead to beneficial results, I'd be very glad to know.

Regards,

Simon

How is everyone?
Does anyone have any updates?

I'm unfortunately still struggling a lot. It's been well over 4 years. This surgery stole my best years from me.
