I replied to hasty. I have just seen a post by you from before which shows you have been having this dilemma with yourself for a while. If you have seen a surgeon and they have suggested impaction but you do not want to change your appearance then I would say stay as you are unless you decision is p...

Your nose would only get wider if the impaction was alot of mm as in the base your nose rests on would be higher up so you nose will be sitting on a wider base. If you just had the premaxillary setback your front part of your face (nose to top lip) would become flatter and your lip would possibly sl...

At least you can now make an informed choice based on the surgeon words plus those of people who have been through it.

I think March is the time...too long but best I fatten up...at least he has my best interests in mind thus far.

The first thing my surgeon said today was..."I do not know why they have done this to you, it's all wrong" That made me happy. Then "I will move you backwards and downwards" not a common movement but it is the opposite of 99% of surgeries...as in the opposite of moving my face and features forward a...

On a positive note my recovery was fine. I had no numbness, relapse, infections or even took painkillers for pain during healing. However as you said to question whether I needed the surgery for a 1mm openbite, I was none the wiser and was told I did "it is the ONLY option" I did not know about seco...

I am not here to put anyone off but obviously if that is my story that is my story. Can't all have good stories and because there are so few bad stories it proves that this surgery is usually highly successful and I am just the 2% that fell into the "oh well" pile. The bad stories should be used to ...

My new surgeon said to me that pre surgery my face was so proportional and my teeth were so straight and bite near perfect apart from 1mm open at the front that he does not understand why this was done to me its like they opened me up, made sure my teeth fitted together and then stuck the actual jaw...

If you have a long face a Lefort I usually sorts that, however if you have a good bite then you will need to move both jaws possibly shorten the top jaw allowing the bottom to rotate forward bringing your chin point forward and then a genio to shorten the vertical length of your chin. If you keep wo...

@sauerkraut Hi, I have read Jane's post a while ago and have also spoken with her. My original surgical team are not accepting fault even though they are unable to provide tracings or surgical work up notes which I find strange if they planned the surgery should they not have all of this? I find you...

I didn't feel the need to research something that was explained to me as so minor. "we will move your lower jaw back a few millimetres to close the bite" If they then went and did my upper jaw too surely how was I to research something that I was not told would be happening. Come on people you are a...
