Numbness After Chin Liposuction and Implant
I had chin liposuction (submental) and a chin implant on 04/23/09. Although I can move my lower lip and chin well, I still have no feeling in those areas at all. I even bit my lower lip several times while eating. During a follow-up consultation yesterday, my doctor said that he was worried about this numbness. He thinks I might have to remove the implant, wait 3 months, and put it on again. I feel that it's still too early to think about surgery because I've only had 2 weeks of recovery. Please give me your thoughts.
Is the numbness on both sides?
