Re: My journey starts here!

I am also having double jaw surgery with a two year time span of Braces + Surgery! I got my braces in June! Glad to hear you got your braces on! I had spacers too, they were okay, kind of irritating, but not super painful for me. One fell out and instead of going back to the ortho, I just put it bac...

Re: Surgery without hospital stay?

Thanks for your help and the info. I've been waiting nearly 8 years to have this surgery done! And it's good to hear about and from someone else who had the surgery with them!

Re: Las Vegas, Nevada Surgeons?

Hey!! :-) Thanks for replying again! The upper jaw they are impacting up and the lower jaw is going to be moved forward and cross-way, to fix overbite and slight/minor crossbite, not sure how complicated this will be. What's interesting is I noticed on the insurance claim they (the surgeon) sent and...

Re: Surgery without hospital stay?

Hey! Thanks for writing me! I actually went to a consult with them and I saw Dr. Holtzen. They had trouble with my insurance, which I later dropped due to other reasons. But anyways the girl at the office who is also the surgical assistant told me $20,000, which doesn't include the anesthesia or hos...

Re: I Fear Something is Wrong :( (almost 12 weeks post BBSO

[quote="sparkles"]Good news! It was bone sticking out of my gum. But luckily my surgeon was at my ortho appointment to see me anyway. It was a bone fragment from the incision site that had decided it wasn't going to be part of my new face and was making it's way out. A few twiddles with the tweezers...
