Chin Implant ** Crooked Smile **

I had read reviews on realself and that is what made me want to post my story.

I was disatisfied with my profile and had a chin implant placed with incision underneath my chin on March 14th. I am currently 6 days post-op. I love the results so far with my profile even though it is still swollen but have developed a complication. I had read several reviews where the chin implant made smiles crooked due to nerve injury so when I noticed this about me I didnt freak out but it really has me worried still. My lip is higher on the right when I smile and it makes it hard to talk or eat. I will post a picture. Initially after surgery my left lip was higher but I apparently bit my lip when I was under anesthesia. I want to keep everyone updated on my progress so others out there experiencing this will also (hopefully) get some comfort from my story. I have had lots of tingling and sensation in my chin and lip but it is mostly numb on the right side of my lip and chin. Has this happened to anyone else? How long did it take you to recover?

By 4 weeks my smile is completely back to normal....

By 4 weeks my smile is completely back to normal. My numbness is almost completely gone. Good luck to everyone having this surgery
