There are some jawlines braces simply can't fix. For those that need extra alterations, surgical procedures that realign bones and wire the mouth into the proper place can produce the desired look.

I had double jaw surgery and genioplasty just over 4 weeks ago and the results have been absolutely devastating. I had a SARPE (palatal expansion) two years ago that went fine so my surgeon assured my the risks with this surgery would also be low. My surgery ended up taking 12 hours, I needed... READ MORE

I am 48 years old. I had braces put on my teeth about 15 months prior to the surgery and knew I would have to have double jaw surgery. No research I did could have prepared me for what I went through. Nothing prepared me for feeling like I couldn't breathe after surgery and being surrounded... READ MORE

Getting jaw surgery was one of the easiest decision I ever made. I am usually very indecisive, but for some reason I knew that I wanted this. I was just turning 16 when I had it done, and I have never felt even an ounce of regret or concern. I was only majorly swollen for about 2 weeks, and... READ MORE

Hi, I'm a 21 yo man and the past january 13 i had orthognathic surgery, got paranal implants on both sides of my midface (MEDPOR implants), i wasn't happy about how my profile face looked like, so i decided to do this surgery along with a rhinoplasty (both functional and aesthetic). The surgery... READ MORE

I had braces as a child but found that my overbite and teeth crowding regressed as an adult. I started orthodontics (again) as an adult in early 2012. The orthodontist's plan was to use Invisalign braces for my upper teeth and fixed braces for my lower teeth. She referred me to an oral surgeon... READ MORE

I would like ask questions to the doctors and members here. I need your opinion. I am going to have an orthognathic surgery as my orthodontist told me to see an oral surgeon. I have been wearing braces for 1 year and 11 months now. I have an under bite and crossed bite. My teeth are all lined up... READ MORE

I had double jaw surgery and genioplasty 4 weeks ago. I know i am still swollen, but I feel like I barely recognize myself and I wish I had more control in how things turned out. My chin seems to angle upwards now, my face seems very short and my nose is now more crooked. A few weeks ago I was... READ MORE

When I had my jaw surgery right after surgery I wanted to turn back the clock. Recovery was tough I had double jaw surgery for an open bite and underbite and my face was very long and from the side I had a flat profile. I am pleased with my new bite however I will comment when full swelling has... READ MORE

I'm going on a year in may of having jaw reconstructive surgery. I wanted a shorter more uniformed face. Initially I had a fat long face. Now my face is ling and thin and my cheek bones way to pronounced and my chin fat!!! I hate it si much. My face is so much longer and my lips are mis... READ MORE

I had upper jaw surgery, where my upper jaw was moved forwards about 6mm. It has completely changed my face. Especially my nose. I did this surgery to correct a slight under bite. Pro - no more underbite Con - I am now self conscious about the way I look and fear going out in public... READ MORE

After years of poor sleep, lack of concentration and depression, I had a sleep study done and finally discovered my problem - Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA means that, during the night, my lower jaw would relax and fall back into my throat, blocking my airway and causing me to stop... READ MORE

I had jaw surgery about four weeks ago in Costa Rica. My surgeon was great and worked well with my NYC orthodontist. They are old friends so it was not nearly as crazy as it sounds. The private hospital was super nice. As far as the surgery, it was smooth. Upper jaw was moved forward 6mm and... READ MORE

As i was growing up my left side or my upper and lower jaw stopped growing, and my right side continued, giving me an assymetrical face, with a small cross bite of the left side. The whole of the left side of my face is slightly smaller than the right, so my face looked wonky. I had right sided... READ MORE

I had 2 jaw surgery and all wisdom teeth removed. My top jaw was moved forward 7mm and my lower jaw moved backwards 2mm to form an over-jet. I came out of surgery about 4 hours later. I didn't feel much pain due to the anesthetic. I was in hospital for 2 nights, on a full liquid diet, with... READ MORE

I am in week 3 after surgery. I am still in lots of pain, with huge swelling and no feeling in half my tongue, my whole lower face and neck as well. It is very wierd how you can be completely numb, but in lots of pain atnthe same time...The Dr did some liposuction at the same time and that has... READ MORE

If you are being told to get jaw surgery at a young age do it now! If you wait it will eventually catch up to you. At 51 I had the surgery and in my opinion it was not painful and my bite is now perfect. Key is to find a doctor that routinely performs the surgery and someone who takes pride... READ MORE

I'm going to go ahead and say that this was truly the worst thing I've ever been through/done. I had jaw surgery (plus genioplasty) nearly 4 months ago and I'm very unhappy with the results. I've been extremely depressed since having it and all I want to do is go back in time and take it all... READ MORE

I had mandibular (jaw) reduction surgery in 2011. The entire surgery is highly-invasive and requires around at least 8 months for all swelling to go down. The incision was made behind my ear. The purpose of this surgery was to minimize my jaw angle to give my face an overall smaller, softer... READ MORE

I had my upper and lower jaw moved with a chin reduction 6 months ago now, and I must say the worst thing I could have done, I still don't know what I will look like as my face is swollen more than it is normal, today I feel as if my face has had a stroke I can't smile and the pain is... READ MORE
