Actually the numbness of lip and chin occur when there is some kind of damage of nerve because of surgery.
If the damage is not a major one just a minor damage then the sensation will revert back within 3-4 weeks and even B- complex will help in it.
But if the damage is a major one then it can take a long time can be one year also to gain your sensations.
But you can continue with the medication of multivitamins and this B-Complex as it will help in repair of nerves.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you
