Re: Nostril change?

I know this is an old post but whatever happened with your nose? Did it go back to normal or did you have it corrected? Asking because I experienced the same thing.

Double jaw surgery

So I'm trying to find and connect with people who have gone through an experience similar to mine because it's been so hard and it would be nice to know that I'm not alone in this. Two months ago I had double jaw surgery to correct my underbite/open bite. My jaw joints were too smooth so that made i...
