Re: Good Surgeons in Montreal, Canada --- or Toronto ... Any

I meant I have to wait 1 year after jaw surgery to get anything else done. The waiting time for jaw surgery itself is between 1 to 2 years depending on your situation. It you're getting teeth pulled like me it is likely to take longer.

Re: mentalis strain (chin strain)

My dermatologist told me that Botox is the easiest remedy. Thought it isn't permanent, it is non-invasive. I haven't tried it myself thought but if I still have them after my jaw surgery I'm definitely considering it.

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

I can totally relate too. I have been called ugly all my life and live as an outcast. There are more than one thing wrong with my face: I have a 9mm overbite, my nose got crooked after an injury and I have deep red acne scars. Sometimes I worry that I will never look "normal". I have a hard time jus...

Re: Good Surgeons in Montreal, Canada --- or Toronto ... Any

So my appointment today went well. The only negative thing I have to say about this doctor is that he will no perform any other procedures to your face at the same this as your jaw surgery. You'd have to wait from 6 months to a year after your jaw surgery, he won't do it prior to the jaw surgery eit...

Re: Good Surgeons in Montreal, Canada --- or Toronto ... Any

First appointment is this Tuesday actually, super exited for some reason. I don't know anyone who had anything done with dr Chehade, I had researched into him too and he sure has a lot of good review.

Will keep you posted!

Re: The smallest things people go in for

To me its all about how much it's bothering you and if your willing to take risk sfor it. For my personal experience and what I have seen, dentist and orthodontist will try to push there services to people who don't really need it. I have heard to often of people who seem to have a perfectly straigh...

He's a plastic surgeon first and foremost and he offers orthographic surgery. Have a look at his website, although there are no before and after pictures because it is illegal for doctors in Quebec to post them online. drbergeron. ca. He has an office in Montreal and another one in the suburbs of Mo...

Re: Good Surgeons in Montreal, Canada --- or Toronto ... Any

But I am not sure myself whether a plastic surgeon or oral surgeon is better as oral surgeon might be doing more orthognatic surgery than a plastic surgeon... Ill ...
