Are My Goals Realistic?
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:30:06 PM »
Hi, all! It's been a while since I've been on this forum.

I"ve made the decision to pursue jaw surgery with Dr. Neugarten in New York. I know that I'll have to wear braces (I'm planning on getting Invisaligns) for a while before the surgery, but I'm hoping I can have the LeFort done either this summer or next. (It depends when my cosmetic fillers where off completely.)

I have a gummy smile, but my main concern is my long face. I feel like the distance between my eyes and lips is too much. I'm hoping this surgery will help, but the doctor said he's only bringing the top jaw up about 4 millimeters. Will that be enough of a difference? Will I even notice the results?
