Is it true that having a chin implant could cause facial nerve damage? I want to have chin implant surgery to correct a weak jaw line. I've heard that this procedure sometimes causes nerve damage and patients look like they have suffered a stroke. What ar
A: A chin implant placed by a well trained facial plastic surgeon should be a relatively simple procedure. While there are risks associated with this procedure--they are extremely rare. What you are describing is an injury to the facial nerve and specifically the marginal mandibular branch (causes the corner of the mouth to be pulled down such as in a frown or even slightly in a smile) which could cause some asymmetry in your smile but not so severe as to be confused with a stroke. Having said this, I have never seen or even heard of this nerve being damaged during a chin implant. There is a sensory nerve (feeling only) in the area that is more at risk. It is the mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve and again it is only for sensation. An injury to this nerve would cause a spot of numbness to the chin and lower lip on the side that was injured. I have heard of some temporary numbness after chin implant surgery (few to several weeks) but never a permanent one. This is most likely due to the swelling and inflammation after surgery. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Can someone explain to me how doctors see so many patients and they don't get sick even if they see patients with fever, etc. Do they take injections?
Good question: I think that it is because the profession occupies the mind apart from simply "making money". Happiness at work is of inestimable importance and few in this robot culture are able to achieve it. If the mind is healthy, so will the body be because we are nothing without the brain. Also, perhaps doctors know all too well how important is diet, the fuel that enables all our functions. ...Read more
