orthognathic surgery, round 1: sarpe surgery. double jaw surgery in 2016!!!!! - Derby, United Kingdom

Hi All, Has anyone had any experience with...

Hi All,

Has anyone had any experience with SARME/SARPE or double jaw surgery? I had SARME surgery on the 21st April 2015 to widen my upper jaw, and then I've got double jaw surgery hopefully in 2016 to put my lower jow backwards and upper jaw forwards to transform my face for the better. Does the double jaw surgery have any impact on cheekbones, shape of face etc? I know this is a very invasive procedure but I've suffered severe depression, anxiety and eating disorders (Bulimia Nervosa put me in emergency hospital in London for nearly 4 weeks) over how I perceive the shape of my face so i would appreciate any advice on SARME and Double Jaw Surgery and your experiences. The photos below are all of where I am at with my SARME surgery so far.

Braces to close SARPE gap and prepare for double jaw surgery

Hi Everyone,
I know it's been a while since I updated but just wanted to show a few photos of my braces starting to close my gap after my upper jaw expansion surgery (SARPE). Only problem is because my front teeth are now closed I have a huge gap to the side, but hopefully the orthodontist will put power chains on those ones at my next appointment in two weeks (praying so anyway..) anyone had any experience with how the gap closes but then forms others after upper jaw expansion surgery? Once all teeth are in line I will be ready for my double jaw surgery! Hoping I will then finally be happy and be able to accept my profile. Any questions regarding anything so far feel free to ask.
