Nerve Damage After Chin Implant?
I had a chin implant procedure about 2 weeks ago and ever since waking up i have not been able to pucker properly and the left side of my bottom lip pulls to the left slightly. Sometimes when i drink water, if im not careful it will spurt out because my bottom lip isn't strong enough to seal my mouth. I can feel the numbness gradually going away but the strength of my lower lip doesnt seem to be improving at all and the pulling to the left is the same as well. Is this permanent nerve damage?
