Has anybody had any issues with their lips after jaw surgery? My upper lip is now crooked. One side of my lip is now noticeably thinner than the other side. I keep thinking that it must still be swollen on that side but I remember right when I got out of surgery my husband took a pic of me and I noticed my lips right away before the swelling started.
It's causing half my mouth to close at rest and the thinner side to stay a lil open. It looks weird and I'm telling myself to wait till 8 wk mark to judge. It's really bugging me. It's causing my face to look even more asymmetrical. I didn't expect my lips to change and even if they did I wouldn't of cared if the evenly got smaller or fuller but not crooked. I've tried to look online and it's mostly ppl with swelling issues but not really any asymmetry AFTER surgery.
The 3rd one down are my lips before surgery
