Sliding Genioplasty Swelling and Unevenness

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.

Removing implant for sliding genioplasty

I currently have a chin implant and am about to get a sliding genioplasty to replace it and have it removed. I have visited two oral surgeons so far. The first told me that a genioplasty would get my the same results as my current chin implant.

should I replace 33 year old silicon button chin implant

I had a silicon button chin implant 33 years ago. Am wondering about replacing it, and what to replace it with --- anatomical or extended anatomical. Doctors all differed in their opinions.

I want a more triangular lower face, am afraid the extended will increase the width of my jaw and lower face. Please give ideas.

Will extended anatomical chin implant widen or lengthen my face, lower face, jaw?
