Sliding Genioplasty plate strength / impact resistance, will it return to it's original shape?

Hi, I had a Sliding Genioplasty around 3 weeks ago, and it went great! However I took an accidental knock to my chin last night. I cant notice any difference to my chin. But to put my mind at ease I wanted to research the plates used to affix the bone. My question is: What is the impact resistance of the titanium plates used in Sliding Genioplasty? Could they be bent with bare hands, and if bent would they return to their original shape?
