Sliding Genioplasty Swelling and Unevenness

Sliding Genioplasty Swelling and Unevenness

Postby genio21 » Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:26 pm

It is day 16 since my sliding genioplasty, brought forward 12mm.

When I look down, one side is significantly more swollen than the other. I.e. this is your chin -> -_- and one side (the "-") goes higher than the other.

Does this sound normal? And anyone know when I'll start to look more normal, I'm very anxious to see other people right now since my chin area looks very enlarged. I also am having trouble smiling normally (my bottom teeth don't show at all, when before they showed a bit).

UPDATE: I had/have an infection. So makes sense that my swelling was uneven.

It's now 3 weeks post op and the swelling has mostly gone down and I'm really happy with how it looks. It's really hard to go from your face before, to your face after + 10x the size due to swelling. It takes weeks to finally start looking normal (to your own eyes).

PM me or post if you want to know anything about my recovery.
