Re: Face shape has changed with braces. Will it get better?

Hey guys! I'm in the same boat LOL! I don't think I'll be having any extractions after reading the things I've just read now on the internet! I'm so glad I did because now I feel like my ortho hasn't been upfront with me. But my case is to fix my maxillary hypoplasia so it's treatment dependent obvi...

Face changes 6months after braces

My appearance is changing dramatically! Does this happen to everyone? I'm trying to figure out if I should keep going or should I get another opinion? I have maxillary hypoplasia and they're pulling my teeth even further back for my maxillary advancement surgery. But I'm worried because people are s...

Re: Is it possible to get braces after jaw surgery?

Don't worry I have a complicated case and am going for my long awaited (27years) jaw surgery only 16-20 months after I get my braces (which I'm still saving up for). These things aren't fun but when you think abo...

Re: How many surgeons did you consult?

I went to 2 orthos, 1 aesthetic dentist and 2 maxillos (one of whom is a plastic reconstruct surgeon as well). I literally looked for the most highly recommended people and paid my area off. I don't regret thus far as they've been extremely thorough and helpful... although I haven't even gotten my b...

Re: Having 3-Piece Lefort 1 6/8/16

It's been hell and my face drops as I get older (now 26). Finally getting bracers and fix all of this! Would you please pretty please give us an update o...

Re: Best country for jaw surgery?

You should come to South Africa to have it done. We have some of the best doctors in the world here and the exchange rate for you will be absolutely marvelous. I would recommend you researching Dr Kevin Adams and Dr Craig Greeff who are working from Claremont, Cape Town. That way you could have an a...

Re: would removing the alar cinch years later change the nose?

Interesting question! I hope someone can shed some light on this soon... I wonder the same thing, if these stitches are long term or if they can be removed...

Re: Anyone here who had low lip line and upper jaw advancement? Jaw surgery to show more teeth

[quote="Nellyfizzle"]Hi all I'm 26 and finally getting bracers before my upper jaw advancement surgery. They will most likely be pushing my jaw down (as you can't see my teeth when I speak) and forward (I had an underbite when I was very little). Have any of you had this particular procedure done? W...
