Not liking my weird closed-mouth smile, hoping things improve soon!
I also did some drawing today, such a great stress reliever! I've always been drawn to drawing profiles (pun?), something which stems from my insecurity about my own. I'm sure fellow jaw surgery patients can relate: once you are aware of the abnormality in your bite, you become so hyper-aware of profiles! Where someone else would say, "Wow what a pretty girl!" I am thinking, "Damn that's a nice profile."
Nowhere close to finished yet!
I am a little worried that a lot of my facial muscles are still numb or painful to use. When I try and animate, it feels lopsided. I sincerely hope this returns to normal- what use is a normal bite if my face is all messed up? I'm not sure if I should be doing any type of muscle rehabilitation given that my surgeon said nothing on the subject.
Here are my progress pics, which I will probably be posting less of because my swelling has more or less stabilized:
