Re: Plastic surgeon vs Maxillofacial Surgeon

I would recommend skimping on a corrective jaw/genioplasty surgery. Trust me on this. Id recommend you consult with a few surgeons and then select one that you feel understands your case best and deliver the results you want. Plastic surgery really isnt in the same domain as jaw surgery which is foc...

Re: PLEASE HELP

That would be very misleading if your surgeon told you not to do anything and then now saying that you have lost full range of motion... :-= Just stretch your jaw, a little bit everyday. look into physical therapy, acupuncture and massage! I understand you are in panic mode right now but do as much ...

Re: Anterior open bite has ruined my social life....

Spent my whole early to mid twenties with an anterior open bite, and as a result, the older I get the more socially awkward I have become. I hate the way I look basically. I hate the fact that my jawline is so assymetrical; my chin will be realigned. With myself NOT being able to smile with my teet...

Re: Normal interlabial gap/incisor display?

Yeah the norm is 0mm but a lot of people have 2-3mm but that's generally the upper limit. And when you have a gap that small without strain, you probably have your lips closed most of the time without thinking about it. Yup a few mm is fine and you can get away with closing your mouth without any m...

Re: 3D imaging services

If it were accurate I'd say yes these would be awesome, but I have been let down so far with digital imaging, because it is very hard to accommodate for soft tissue and muscle placement post op!.... but yes the idea is awesome :D

Re: Changes to Nose

It would really depend on how they are moving your upper jaw. If they impact it I have heard your nose will widen a bit and that the alar stitch helps reduce excessive width . If your upper jaw is brought forward it will upturn your nose a little and if brought back it might bring your nose down a b...

Re: Too old?

Wow you're gonna look seriously amazing. I rarely see anyone with inter-labial gap as large or larger than mine before surgery. I'll also be having a 4-5mm maxillary impaction (and a small advancement) with a 10mm lower jaw advancement. I already had a 8 mm sliding genioplasty in the past so the to...

Re: just as good....?

Yeah, I hear ya. I guess I keep hoping someone will drop a new name, maybe more obscure but just as good, not as expensive, still high work ethic, and sense of what looks good. I wish I could just let it all go, and I've tried, but I can't. This goal of mine, it's something I've always wanted so ba...
