How's your jaw functioning though? Are you able to chew hard foods like steak no problem?

Laslo- thanks so much for the kind words! Although my friends thought jaw surgery was plastic surgery of some kind, no I haven't done anything. Just retinol cream at night, sunscreen in the day:)
Serra- my lip turned in a little immediately after having the metal removed from my chin. It's the same but improves slightly when I do my stretching exercises.
Terry947 - like I said, my jaw clicks on one side occasionally but otherwise function is 100%.

What is the procedure to make the lip more out?

Serra - I'm finding out more about the procedure and am now looking into having my genioplasty revised to make my chin shorter as my lower lip hangs too low when I talk....

Antbee - Okay, I saw your other thread. Let me know if you're discussing the procedure for your lower lip at all. I think it's probably a v-y plasty but I wanted to check with you to make sure.

Old topic I know, but can someone explain to me why OP's chin looked flatter after plate removal? Did the actual bone move back or somehow lose projection?
