Chin Surgery - 3 Years out - Boston, MA

About three years ago I decided to take the plunge and get a little work done. My chin was always a little square for my liking and I wanted it to look more "feminine." (Never mind that in retrospect it looked fine as it was....). Anyway, I convinced my rather reluctant PS to give me some chin burring. Surgery was done intraorally. End result, a slight change, but not much improvement. No one can really tell anything was done but I am now left with a bit of numbness around my lower lip on one side. It doesn't affect my speech, eating, motility or anything - but I can feel the difference. Also now I have more lower tooth show. Also it's slightly uneven. All negatives. Oh, and when you have this surgery done intraorally it can make the lower lip shrink up (as it did in my case). Anyone looking to have this done should really research their surgeon carefully and make sure they know what they're doing and are VERY experienced with it. Not too many surgeons do this type of work, and I feel the chin, especially the mentalis muscle can be a tricky area to navigate.
I just wanted to up my original doc's star rating...
