that sounds terrible. did you relapse or did the surgeon fix the jaws improperly?

I had the smallest overbite honestly I never even noticed it. they moved my chin back which was disastrous so I look more like a before than an after aesthetically. I totally relate on the pushing down and sewn together sensation. It might be nerve damage but I also want to get the plate I'm my chin removed in case. Have you tried botox as well? I have an appointment next week. My bite also feels weird. Its very close to edge to edge, I'd prefer more of an overbite....this pisses me off because my orthodontist could have easily corrected my bite to a satisfactory position with elastics and braces, but I guess his pockets felt empty and he couldn't pass up a surgery case to get the referral check SMH.
