Oral Surgery/Jaw asymmetry after surgery
I had lower jaw surgery last year. Ever since then, I've noticed one of my cheeks looks flat or sunken compared to the other. It gives me a gaunt appearance. The screws were inserted into my ramus. I've also noticed when I flex my masseter muscles, the abnormal cheek's muscle feels a lot smaller than the normal one. What is likely causing the cheek to pull in? Could the muscle have been damaged in the surgery or is occlusion maybe off?
It is very difficult to answer your question without examining you, reviewing your X-rays to determine what has happened as a result of your surgery. Your best bet would be to see a board certified oral and Maxillofacial surgeon in your area.
