Will reopening extraction spaces give my earlier profile back?

I had braces + 4 premolar extractions. I began noticing changes in my face- bigger nose, less space for tongue, sunken cheeks etc. I look unrecognizable. I want to go for reverse extraction orthodontics. However, while I know it will be beneficial for the tongue space problem, I don't know if it will give me my earlier profile back.

I have been wondering the same thing. I believe it does.

That's what I hope too.
Those of you who have had reverse extraction orthodontics, did it give you your earlier profile back?

I like my profile, however as you can read my post my front central incisors are flared up like crazy and there is only two months left. Before you do anything make sure you can widen your upper arches without them just tipping teeth.

Thank you so much synergy for your response. The profile you have now, is it the same as you had before having the braces for the first time?

No I didn't have this issue before my teeth were visible in the front without effort. They also were not tipped/flared out like they are now. The reason why I went through the reversal procedure with my orthodontist is because I wanted to widen my palate and top arches since they were narrow from having teeth pulled. Additionally I wanted to implant teeth again. It's already been 2 years 7months.
