I had a septo/rhyn and a chin implant about 9 weeks ago... my nose looks wonderful however my chin implant has given me nothing but trouble. I HATE the way the implant makes my face look very squared and off, but the problemI'm having the most is trouble with my speech and after 9 weeks I still can't smile (the smile looks aweful) my lip will not allow my lower teeth to show. I am a dental hygienist so my smile is my career and it has taken a toll onmy quality of life. Another big concern is the past 4 days I have started to have pain on the right side of my chin into my jaw, things such as sitting toothpaste and eating have become very painful.
- If I have it removed after 9 weeks will the "pocket" make my chin sagg?
- Does the pain and swelling indicate an infection?
- Because my lower lip will not go down when I talk/smile could that be from the actual impant blocking or impending on the mental nerve?
The hygienist with no smile :(
