Would my lips/mouth change after jaw surgery?

Lip change . Potentially. Depends what you are having done. Also, the tissues can be managed to either enhance or control the degree of change.
Yes. Yes. Since the lips and mouth are supported in part by the teeth, then the appearance in these areas change. The changes should be positive.

Yes, it could. Orthognathic surgery, may involve procedures on the upper jaw, lower jaw, cheekbones, nasal bones as well as other facial bones and combinations of any.

Possibly. Jaw surgery may be an option, but changes in your occlusion may be necessitated by the surgery. Ask your Orthodontic Specialist to refer you to the Oral Surgeon on his crania-facial team for an evaluation. The Orthodontist, the General Dentist, and the Oral Surgeon can then arrive at a comprehensive treatment plan for you. Read more...

I had double jaw surgery ten days ago. Is there a way to make the stitches in my mouth dissolve faster?

Resolvable stitches. The stitches generally serve the purpose of protecting the surgical site for several days and so it is advisable to leave them in tact. If they are truly bothersome I suggest that you return to your healthcare provider and allow him or her to address this for you. Read more...

I had jaw surgery over 2 years ago and I've had cracks at the sides of my mouth for months now and tried everything, any ideas?

See your doctor. There are several possible causes that you should have your doctor evaluate you for. Nutritional deficiencies can cause cracking at the sides of the mouth, as can fungal or bacterial infections, as well as allergic reactions and contact dermatitis (such as to lip balm or toothpaste).

Lips? TMJ's? I am unclear as to your question: is it a cracking noise from your jaw joint, or cracks in the corners of your lips. The former could be some joint derangement related or unrelated to surgery. The latter is called angular cheilitis, and could be a vitamin b deficiency or a build up of saliva all the time at the corners of the mouth. See oral surgeon! Read more...

3 months after double jaw surgery cleaning my teeth toothbrush hit behind my lower teeth inside my mouth on the ramus (?) quite a few times hard, could that push lower jaw back?

No. Hitting you r jaw with your toothbrush will not do that. Short of major trauma there is nothing you can do that will "push your lower jaw back". Read more...
Not likely. The jaw can be moved upwards, downwards, forwards and rarely backwards because of the anatomical structure, especially after the orthognatic surgery. Read more...
No. sufficient healing has occurred so you could not do any damage. Read more...
No. No. the bones that were sectioned in that operation have solidly healed. Read more...
Not likely. Very unlikely that there is any concern after 3 months. Also, you may be stabilized with wires or plates or screws and it would not be possible to move the jaw. Of course, be careful, but you won't move your jaw with the toothbrush. Good Luck. Read more...
Don't worry. The bone had knit together after the first 6 weeks, and now it is reorganizing and maturing. Please try not to traumatize tissues by overly-aggressive brushing, but do clean thoroughly and carefully. Avoid contact sports. Your Oral Surgeon knows you best. Call his/her office to see if they would like to see you for a reevaluation. Read more...
Short answer: No. when jaw surgery is done...metal screws and plates are used to fix the repositioned parts. you wouldnt be able to generate enough force from brushing your teeth in that manner to seperate those parts and cause your lower jaw to go back. Read more...
Not likely. once you have healed from orthognathic surgery your jaw will not go back with minor trauma. Read more...

I recently had jaw surgery, moving my upper jaw out 20mm. Now, I can't open my mouth very far. My jaw muscles get tight also. Help please!

See your surgeon. You will be fine. Some physical therapy of the jaw muscles and some guiding rubber bands will help you tremendously. See your doctor on how to perform these exercises and also to check if you are healing well. Read more...
Give it time and PT. You say recent surgery. Usually your jaws are in fixation with rubber bands or even wires for a time to allow for bony healing. It will take some time of exercising your jaw movements (physical therapy) to regain full range of motion. Usually, there is nothing to worry about, and temporary limitation is just that: temporary. Good luck! Read more...
