Surgery Went Fine Orthodontist a Nightmare...

I had upper jaw surgery and it went well moved the jaw 6mm. Could not ask for a better job, I was healing and went to my orthodontist and there was about 4mm gap distant on my upper jaw verses the lower jaw. The orthodontist then stated looks good I will aline your teeth and you should be good to go and done with braces in 3 months. The orthodontist then tighten my top jaw to meet the bottom jaw to aline the bite. What she did was pulled the top jaw back to meet the bottom jaw and has completely reversed the surgery. I am now back to where I was before surgery so, surgery has been a waste and I am now trying to figure out what to do at this point, I have contacted my surgeon to see what I am supposed to do at this point. I can not believe what the orthodontist has done and now what do you do? I am so tried of having to police everybody because nobody seems to know what they are doing, as soon as you think somebody knows what they are doing, bam welcome to the fuckup... reverse pull headgear what... anybody have any answer?? 2200 I paid cash, Insurance paid 43,000. Was done 3 months ago...

Still trying to fix...

Well I have seen my Max doctor 4 times after this has happened I still have the braces going on 4 years. Yes I still have problems, there is pressure on my both jaw joints (never had this before). What are you going to do the damage has already been done. My ortho is still trying to fix my bite though rubber bands. My jaws has been pulled back into my face now I have all this loose skin at my neck. I go to the Max doctor and he brings the jaw out, somewhat a face lift and repairs my bite and deviated septum I go to the ortho and she brings it back instance aging I look like an old man. I am not sure if to have the surgery repeated. The Max doctor will have to remove the brackets he has never redone a surgery before and move the jaw again. On top of this he also was able to straighten my septum so I could breath and guess what now my left nostril has almost completely closed hard to breath needs to be redone its actually worse. So I have given time for my ortho to fix the bite but there is to much pressure on my jaws and face and deviated septum. All this because my ortho went to close my gap over pulled my top jaw it just has ruined the surgery. So if you have this upper jaw surgery done moved forward do not let the ortho touch your upper jaw once you go back to have the braces adjusted or moved.

To all the Maxillofacial surgeons out there make sure you communicate with the orthodontics on what to do after the surgery!

Question ?? would you back to the Max doctor and the surgery repeated?? Thank you...
