@CRAZYBEAUTIFUL I am not having a go at you but moving my lower back 2mm as discussed would not have produced these changes and would have closed the bite. However this is not what was done as was planned. I am angry that the plan was not stuck too and that I am being told to live with changes I did...

I had a 1mm open bite edge to edge, it never affected me the dentist told my mum I should see an orthodontist, fair enough so I do not have problems later on in life, so the changes that have taken place in my face do not mirror the small change that was meant to be in my teeth only. Ok...so they ha...

They told me and my mum I had to have the surgery and that there was no alternative.

And we believed them as we thought they had my best interests in mind.

Now I know I did not need surgery.

Too late and now I have had both jaws moved instead of 1.

Call me naive but all I expected to see was a change in my front teeth. I can only expect what I was made to expect. I was shown no diagrams, tracings or models so how am I to know things will change I am not a surgeon and was never made to believe things would change apart from my teeth. Not everyo...

My face has been made assymetrical post surgery and my teeth/arches look horrible. My insicors have been flared to form the bite and if I put my teeth back to my edge bite the centre line is off. Wish I never did this whole thing. I had a 1mm open bite and for some reason they told me they were doin...

Sorry to be negative but I definitely would not be happy with that. I had a wide/broad arch before surgery and they tipped my teeth and flared my incisors to make the bite and now my arch looks narrow too and when laugh (as mouth open) you can see my topp and bottom incisors stick out but when close...

In my opinion if you go for jaw surgery because of your tetth and have no issues with your appearance they shouldn't do it. I went there innocent, didn't know anything about midlines, gum show etc just knew my teeth were open 1mm at the front edge to edge and I didn't even know that was a prob until...

Hmm.... my new surgeon is doing upper and lower again for me to rotate the complex the other way in reverse to the way the other surgeon did it in the first place as it has caused a complete change in my profile that I am not happy with and did not ask for so I am having double jaw again.

I hate the way they lightly explain the surgery like it's just something they do and then you go and live a happy life. All I have noticed is that they do not appreciate your personal opinion with regards to how you look, how you smile, how you like your teeth and they move your teeth and disregard ...
