Underbite surgery before and after!!
« on: March 24, 2014, 10:03:24 PM »
I had surgery in July of 2012, had upper jaw moved forward and lower jaw moved backwards. First three pictures are before, last two are about one year after.
I'll be happy to answer any questions!

What were your movements in mm?  Genioplasty?

You look fantastic. I don't think it was bad before but it's definitely amazing after. Can you share when did you get it? Do you experience any kind of numbness?

I don't know the movement lengths. No genioplasty. I had it in July 2012, and no numbness at all after about 3 months.

This is a great AMA... OK then, how big was your underbite pre-op?  Has the movement of the lower jaw back affected your breathing in any way?  (Did you snore before, do you snore now?)

I don't know the exact number, but I'd estimate that there was about a 1 cm gap between the top and bottom front teeth. No changes in breathing.
