I think you look better now; before your protruding chin made you look angry. Now your face is more balanced. And the cost is very reasonable; in America it is like 20K and many people who paid that are still having a lot of nerve pain. Yet you look better, paid less, and report no complications. yaar i would say you got lucky!

You look like a handsome man to me, and if you would not frown and look angry you would look even nicer. I had this surgery one week ago. I spent a few months looking at youtube videos so I would know what to expect. It takes a long time to recover from this surgery. I try to be patient and notice every tiny little improvement.

It has improved your side profile Irshad. Your upper and lower lips now meet together nicely. Before surgery your bottom lip was more out. I can't see your teeth but they must be looking much better.

I think your appearance has improved, too. You had a subtle change and look best now.

Thank you for adding profile pictures!  From this angle, I can see the change very clearly.  Before, your lower lip protruded more than your upper.  Now your upper and lower lips are in-line, but your nose-region is still more shallow than one would expect.  

With these pictures, I think you have a good amount of information to ask the doctors.  I saw that you have attempted to submit a question to them before and that it was not published because there was not enough information.  If you resubmit it now with the pictures, there should be enough.  I will send you a private message.

Sorry to hear that you feel so upset about the outcome and as TwoPlusOne has said as one who does not know you , i actually cannot tell a major difference , but both your photos you look smart, at close inspection your upper lip looks more raised and this affects the nose but i have to say the difference is not having a negative impact at all , if anything your face looks more defined and with a more chiselled effect and thats not bad!! Obviously you have to bear in mind that even the slightert difference is always going to seem a hundred times more to ourselves, so go easy in yourself you really do look good in both and its your confidence that will make you seem down but definitely not your looks!

I'm so sorry that you are unhappy with the results of your procedure.  After 8 months, it is unlikely you are still swelling.  However, I must admit that, not knowing you, I cannot see any difference in your before and after pictures.  Is the difference that bothers you from the front, or from the side?

Thanks for your concern on me, it is from front, mainly the nose has changed, the face become dull after the surgery and upper jaw is fully forward so it disturbs me to speak, because the lips gets stuck with the upper teeth...

It is expected for people to feel very shocked after jaw surgery.  It happens with many other types of surgery also.  It is a big change, and you feel that you are not the same person anymore--that your inside no longer matches your outside.  For a stranger, the change is very small.  You were a handsome man before and are still now.

It takes time to get used to talking whenever teeth or jaws change.  Practice in a mirror if you can, as much as possible.  Talking and singing.

Your sadness at losing yourself will affect your appearance also.  When you accept your new face, satisfaction and happiness will shine through your eyes, and you will see the handsome man again.  You can look at other people's reviews here and see that some are sad like you and some who are not.

I wish you happiness.
