I had my surgery yesterday with Dr Wittenberg in Vancouver Canada. We may for 4 hours the day before going over things and his plans for my face. He knew I wanted prominent cheek bones (without making my face look chubby), a squared chin, with a strong jaw going back to my ear. I did want to avoid getting a square jaw as I wasn't interested in changing my oval face shape which I do see as ideal.
Morning of the surgery was great and we again talked over things. His nursing staff made me feel at ease rubbing my back and letting me know I'm in great hands. I brought some essential oil spray "pain realease" for after the surgery and they were more than happy to spray me.
I walked into the clinic surgery room and met the anestesiologist who I confirmed with that I wanted extra light sedation only. Everyone was prepping and I told them I wanted to pray for them and they were all appreciative and glad to take 30 seconds to gather together and ask for wisdom, guidance, and safety.
With that the IV was put in, and all I remember saying is "wow that kicks in fast" and I was out.
Smile is so warped. Help?
It's say 6 tomorrow and I am just trying to get through everything day by day. Looking back I don't think it was wise to get everything done at once. It's so much to handle and take in and it's hard not recognizing yourself in the mirror.
What is stressing me today is the lopsidedness of the jawline and smile. One seems very far outwards in comparison to the other side. Like the one side of my face is square and more masculine and the other side is slopes nicely. Totally mismatched.
I talked to the surgeons office today who told me it's all just swelling but the more I look the more unbalanced the angles look.
More importantly, my lower lip is too tight into my mouth. It's like when the chin was moved forward it pushed my plump lower lip up and tilted into my teeth so it sits too high. I LOVED my smile before. It was my best feature. Now the lower lip seems stuck in place and like not matter what I can't move it. It almost feels as though it was stitched too high up onto my gums so it has lost mobility? I can move it outwards and inwards but no matter what I do (even trying to force down with fingers) it just covers my whole smile. I'm trying to hang in there but honestly if this is going to be my smile I will have it reversed. Any thoughts??
