Thank you very much for your time and for your help Doctor.
I’m Maria again.
My english is not good and maybe I don’t explain to you good about to come back to my pre-op …..
I Know it is almost impossible to return perfectly how I was before, but I would like to Know If I can have a normal chin again with my S form again…the doctors here told me than I can have a normal chin with steroid or with surgery taking out the scar tissue…( the more prominent part is right under my bottom lip I suppose it is because of the scar inside my mouth) this part is a bump it is soft but it doesn’t shink.
I know you are an expert in faces and I know you are a very good doctor for this reason i would like your opinion too.
I don’t want live with this for the rest of my life.
About your questions:
The doctor in my country put a implant .But 18 days later he cut the implant and put again (because he told me that it was to big for me) and then 15 days later it was too inflamated and I needed to come back to Atlanta and I ask him to remove it and he did it.
Then 3 days later I had a lot fluid inside and he take out the liquid with a needle . And was all good but a week later , a hard ball form in the chin.
He told me that the ball would go away on its own in 3 months. But the ball improved a little but not so much….the inflamation is a lot better but now the problem is the scar tissue.
I think that if the part under my lip improves, my chin will look almost normal.
Sorry to hear all that you have gone through. A good plastic surgeon should know ahead of time what size implant will fit best on his or her patient. It does sound like too much was done to your chin too quickly and that will create lots of scar tissue. In such cases, you have to be under the care and supervision of a good plastic surgeon to make sure things are not infected and that the area is stable.
Allowing time to pass and using steroid injections to soften the scar tissue is a good thing usuallly before rushing back into surgery again. Once time has passed (at least 12 months from the last surgery) and enough steroids have been used, surgical scar removal may be a good option. Although you will not get back your exact old chin, your surgeons should be able to improve the chin significantly.
