I removed my medpor chin implant of 3 years and opted for sliding genioplasty combined with mandible jaw reduction surgery. It's been 2.5 weeks since the operation and I notice an indentation in my right chin where the jaw meets, it looks like the skin is stuck to the bone in that area. The contour of my left jaw and chin is smooth and connected, only the right side looks very wrong at the moment. Will it go away in time? What can I do to smooth it out? Is it bone resorption or scar tissue?
Replaced Medpor Chin Implant With Sliding Genioplasty, Is The Indentation Permanent?
