Can getting wisdom teeth removed and getting braces change your facial appearance?

I had all my wisdom teeth removed 8 months ago, I had swelling in my cheeks for a week and after that it reduced but to this day I can still notice that my cheeks are chubbier than before the surgery, they just seem thicker. I also had top braces and a bottom metal retainer put on 5 month's ago but had them removed 2 months ago, and now I have a dimple under my bottom lip. I find myself having to bite my cheeks to have them look the way they did before. I'm a 19 year old male 5"11 and weigh 145
