Re: Midline off post jaw surgery. Is that normal?

Yes, they did do medical mapping. I went to my orthodontist and he seemed to be very pleased with the outcome of surgery and said all my concerns were things that can easily be corrected with the rest of my ortho treatment. So, I feel confident to know that this is something that can be fixed.

Re: Smoked after jaw surgery what to do?

Smoking definitely does slow down the healing process. I would probably just not smoke again until you are able to talk to your surgeon again and get their opinion.

Re: Jaw surgery regret

Ooo, wow, well I am sorry to hear that. I hope that over time things change. Maybe it's just due to the swelling still needing to go down more. They say it takes a little time.

Re: Jaw surgery regret

I am just curious what is it that you all don't like post surgery? That is a fear of mine. Is it just more so you all might still be swollen and can't truly see what your face looks like or do you look like a completely different person?
