I had my BSSO (advancement) and genio about 5.5 months ago and have noticed the swelling go down pretty consistantly since then. I cant really see anymore swelling right now, but I am sure that I will continue to see changes as things settle. I do however notice that in the morning, my bottom lip is big and puffy (to almost twice its normal size)- its even started peeling from the swelling. I never think to bring this up at my appointments because it goes back to normal size after a few hours and I dont feel its serious enough to phone my OS about. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen or has any ideas on what I can do to get it back to normal?
