while i generally do not answer questions relating to elective surgery...

barring infection, etc, you should be able to eat 3-5 days after your op.

everything else depends on your body. you should ask your physician. not the internet.

I don't think most people here would have gone for a sliding genioplasty its quite an uncommon surgery.

Your concerns would be best addressed by a specialist in craniofacial or orthodontics stuff.

But having said that maybe you can give it a shot and google up surgical journals of people who have undergone genioplasties / chin reduction / jaw reduction work.

I was most comfortable drinking through a straw for the first 2 days. From third day on I was able to eat small cut pieces of banana, yoghurt, porridge. Because of the swelling it is painful to open your mouth or stick out your tongue too much so be gentle and go slowly.

Felt like I had a speech impediment for the first week and I think it started to gradually improve after week two especially.

I was able to communicate the words you mentioned even at day 1 but it did sound funny.

I had pain in the area of my tooth roots because of the swelling. No pain from the cutting of the bone. Avoid talking if you can until the swelling dissipates.

Missugly, I think you are on the right path if you see a maxillo-facial surgeon first to sort out what your bone deficiencies are. Make sure you get the x-rays and the cephalometric analysis done BEFORE you go ahead with any surgery. Good Luck!
