Revision Genioplasty and Nerve Damages?
Hi, I had a 5 mm advancement bony sliding genioplasty 4 weeks ago. The swelling is almost gone, but I noticed my chin is not symetric, it's like it's sliding to the right. I'm thinking that maybe I should get another surgery to have this fixed. But when should I get it? Is it best to have it as soon as possible or to wait? what would be the most appropriate concerning the nerve damages this surgery does? waiting for all the nerves to heal, or it does not do any difference?
