|Two weeks out— most of swelling gone|
I can eat most everything and enjoyed my thanksgiving holiday last week. The only issue is that the area where the incision was and the stitches are gets irritated when food touches it. The only relief is with warm salt water rinses and making sure I brush after meals.
I am finally happy with the way it looks, even in profile. I no longer have the "flat face" look I had after the big jaw surgery, nor do I have the "dumb" look and the overly prominent nose I had before I started down this path. No more recessed jaw.
