If it wasn't necessary from the start, then 3 mm is a lot.

3mm is 3mm and what I'm getting at is that perhaps the bone movement itself isn't to blame for the appearance; maybe she has an infection. That's why I asked when the last time she saw her surgeon was.

Last time I saw the surgeon was four days ago, and there was no infection.

Hello
I just had had an 2nd surgery becasue my lower jaw was infected so had to remove the plates and screws. But has anybody had their upper jaw moved back in the 2nd surgery. I am so dissapointed with the result and want my upper jaw to placed.baxk where it was prior to the surgery. Also my lower jaw have been pushed back too excesively. I also feel that my both jaw feel small compare to how it was before.
Thanks

Hello, may I ask how was your second surgery? Do you like the result this time? I have exactly the same problem as you had. My upper jaw was moved up too much and left me no upper tooth show and my bottom lip doesn't cover my lower teeth after the surgery. I've waited for the reversing surgery for two and half years, and I'm going to have the surgery next month. Now I'm really worried what will happen this time!

Is your original surgeon performing the surgery? How much were you impacted in the original surgery and how much are they bringing it down now?

No, I'm going to another surgeon for surgery. My original surgeon didn't tell me any measurement about the first surgery. I saw another two patient from the same surgeon who ended up with zero tooth show. So I feel it's just the way the surgeon like it to be, and I feel uncomfortable to let him do the reversing surgery. For last two years I had consultation with different oral surgeon for opinion, they all suggest to bring the upper jaw down by 3-4mm. I'll have the pre-op planning appointment, I hope the new surgeon can tell me the measurement. I saw some other people here had the same problem, I really want to know if anyone reverse the surgery successfully.

Did you have a gummy smile before your first surgery? Why did you have an impaction in the first place?
