Google 'tads for gummy smile' and you will see how it works.

Damn, could that fix lip incompetence too? If so, could have just done that rather than surgery. Although surgery seemed to be the faster route for me

I wonder how stable it would be though.  Surgical impaction is like the most stable operation.

hmm maybe TADS is worth looking into, I wonder what the cost would be.

I know seems really random but i am still going ahead with the same surgeon, tbh my upper jaw doesn't bother me all that much, I have very slight show of gums but nothing major. As where I really hate the appearance of my chin and he advised lower jaw surgery would be better thab sliding genioplasty as my lower jaw is slightly recessed. Next appointment with my ortho is on the 17.06 i'll need braces on my wisdom teeth now to prep me for surgery.

You are going to be gorgeous after surgery. You are pretty now especially your eyes. Post some after pics when you are done please ;-)

Hi,

I've had a consultation with Paul Johnson I was told I have vertical maxillary excess and slightly excessive show of my upper incisors. I was advised single jaw surgery for my upper jaw. this would come to a total cost of 7,315 GBP inc hospital fees and check up appointments etc, he advised me I will also have anti clockwise rotation of the lower jaw done to bring my chin slightly more forward and advised me not to get lower jaw surgery as there is a bigger risk of numbness and a much longer healing time. I explained my concerns about my chin as I really hate its appearance and he advised sliding genioplasty would be a better solution. Although a sliding genioplasty would be great it would then bump the cost to 12,000 GBP.

I really want to schedule a surgery date soon but wondered if anyone else has had the upper jaw surgery with anti clockwise rotation of lower jaw and how much of an impact it made to your chin??

have attached some pics
   
The more I learn about the gamble that is jaw surgery the more afraid I become!!!   :-(

12 days after lower jaw surgery! I'm still swollen but i am looking a lot more like myself! I'm now starting to eat soft foods too :-D.

I have a little bit of feeling back in my lower lip but i am still pretty numb in that area! Its still early days so hopefully it'll subside in a few months. :-)

Wow, your day 16 pic looks really good! The lower jaw surgery made your chin turn out quite lovely. I hope you update us again on your progress.

So how's it going now another month since the last update? Looks-wise and also health etc. You already looked great before surgery so I can only imagine.
