Ok, here's my right jaw on the 19th day. Dr Pat said that my left jaw is less developed than my right jaw (which wld explain why my right side of face has always been bigger and I suffer lockjaw from time to time), therefore he carved a slightly larger implant for my left jaw.
hence, my left jaw is more swollen than my right jaw, and will prob take longer to heal. it's not very obvious that left side is bigger becos with the bigger implant, now both sides are more balanced, but left jaw has more swelling, which has caused numbness in the area below my lower left lip. I do hope it's just numb and not some nerve damage. I encountered the same numbness when i went for lipo in dec, but it faded after a month or so.
thus, i have posted only my right jaw so far. right jaw still a bit swollen, hopefully it will go away and leave an even more defined jawline in time
The front view still looks a bit wide, but if i use my chin implant experience as a guide, it will continue shrinking to maybe half or 3/5 of its current size. at least i pray that it will follow the same healing pattern, else i will permanently have a big face
