Hello all, I had upper jaw surgery 10 days ago, and I am sailing through the recovery quite easily. I must be lucky. But I am not as happy about the outcome as I had expected: I still have zero tooth show. In fact, I'm very upset, as I'm trying to understand why that happened. Sure, I'm still... READ MORE

Even though my lower lip and chin is numb I'm very happy with the result of my single jaw surgery. No more underbite but have to wear braces maybe for another two years and remove it when my teeth implants installed. Have to undergo 2nd surgery because my mini titanium plate on the left side...

I'd hated my smile and my appearance since around age 14. I had braces in my teenage years that corrected my bite, but my prognathic jaw, small mid-face and large chin were never addressed. I was always incredibly self-conscious about smiling and having my photo taken. I approached... READ MORE

I first learned I might need orthognathic surgery when I had my upper wisdom teeth removed; the surgeon remarked that I had a severe open bite, and this would cause pain and problems later in life if not addressed. I ignored it for a while, and when I graduated from school I went to several... READ MORE

Hey everyone, I was wondering whether or not I should have surgery to fix my underbite. I'm 19 years old, almost 20, and was thinking now would be the right time to do so before I go into my final years of pharmacy school and cannot take off for a couple months at a time. My underbite is not so... READ MORE

I am 25 years old and have started the process of orthognathic treatment in preparation for surgery in the UK - I am not sure if they do it any different to the USA? I have got my braces on and I am due to have my upper and lower jaws broken in just over a years time. I am absolutely terrified... READ MORE

My experience- I had been debating this surgery for years and when i turned 20 i talked to my mom about wanting to learn about it more. We made an appointment with my orthodontist and that was the first step. I had to wear braces and believe me as a 20 year old in college thats the last thing i... READ MORE

I am a 62 year old female. I had double jaw surgery (overbite) and genioplasty. The reason for the surgery was sleep apnea. Because my lower jaw was too far back, my airway was small and my snoring was awful. I had been using a C-PAP for the past year. Also I have been a teeth grinder for... READ MORE

After a lifetime of a not being able to breathe through my nose, sleep problems, a wonky jaw and crooked teeth, I approached a specialist and they reccomended orthognathic surgery. I cried from terror in the Doctor's chair but I sucked it up and after six months of braces - successfully... READ MORE

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

-Intro- Never did I think I'd actually have this procedure done overseas, especially not on this particular summer trip to Taiwan, yet here I am typing my experiences from my relative's apartment in Taichung. It all started when I was randomly reading a forum on orthognathic surgery reviews and... READ MORE

Since I was 7, the orthodontist had always told me I would need a jaw surgery to correct my bite. My parents asked him to do whatever he could so I could avoid this- that is what he did. I was in a retainer, a palet expander, head gear, and braces. Yes, my teeth were straight, though my teeth... READ MORE

I'm 20,I was already told it's minor functional and it's because I don't wan't to regret it later on in my life, and this is just a week after the surgery, even though it was a functional requirement i was given the chance to choose otherwise, but ended up taking the surgery because of personal...

I have to have Orthoganathic Surgery next year and i want to know what difference NOT getting the chin done will make. I have to have upper jaw, lower jaw, and nose surgery..those are all 80% covered by my insurance. The chin surgery that i'm told would be purely cosmetic is not covered by... READ MORE

I feel like my upper jaw was moved forward too much and now I look like a chimp. Originally my upper jaw was supposed to be moved forward 6.3mm and my lower jaw was supposed to be rotated to the right. My doctor then changed it to 7.5mm upper jaw and lower jaw also moved FORWARD 1.5mm. I was... 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

Being born and raised in predominantly European country Ive always wanted to match who Im inside. Its probably vanity. I was said for 2in 1 procedure of zygoma and jaw reduction it would be about 10000 in San Fran, but I'm afraid of scars, or sth going wrong. I have no health issues and I like... READ MORE
