Braces on: August 2009, Underwent maxillary impaction, mandibular advancement and genioplasty on 28th March 2013 - Now on the road to recovery!
Your side profile! WOW!!! You look amazing! (:
Amazing results for us both I think!! :) But thank you!
Great results....what were your surgical movements?
Impaction: 6mm which i'm glad of. Ideally I needed an 8mm movement to get what is classed as a 'normal smile' but my surgeon said this was too big of a movement and in the long run would become more gummy as I got older. He also said movements of 9mm+ have a higher chance of relapse.Mandibular advancement with genioplasty: 5mm (He did describe how he moved my jaw and chin to avoid moving my top jaw forwards but I didn't really understand what he was saying - other than it was a 5mm movement).
So you upper was moved forward 8 mmAnd Lower 5?Or lower 8 plus a 5mm genioSorry I'm confused
At any time during your recovery did you notice any hollowness from your cheek area?
I can't say I have no! Have you? It may just be the shape of your cheek bone that's changed. I know that jaw surgery can alter it's shape, and especially with maxillary impaction - it usually gives you higher cheek bones!
I noticed it has filled out a little since I've done some acupunture, but who knows...maybe it would have filled it out on its own? How are you doing? I haven't heard from you in awhile!
Think you looked lovely before but you look amazing now!
holy f*ck, great transformation. looking hot!
