Bone grew over plate?
« on: December 02, 2017, 11:08:34 AM »
I had a sliding genioplasty about 3 years ago, and recently my surgeon had gone back in to remove the plate, but the bone had grown over so only the removal of 2 screws were possible. Has something like this ever happened to anyone here? Is it possible to get the plate embedded within the bone out?
