  • You are my inspiration. I have jaw surgery in couple of months, and i just cannot wait anymore. I am thinking about it every day 24/7. I've been depressed, skiped classes, stayed at home because I noticed how much people give attention to me,my double jaw and I just feel awkward and dont want to socialise anymore. When I feel awful I always watch your videos and instantly feel better about the results. Thank you, you are amazing!!!

  • Hello 👋🏼 I just wanted to say that I have a misaligned jaw , Ive been having it for a few years now and as years go by my face is looking uneven (my right side face looks more fat then the other side) I got this problem when I first had went to the dentist for braces . And honestly im so scared to get surgery because I now have 2 kids my youngest is 1 . But I’m also afraid that each year that passes by my face is looking more uneven and they did tell me it will get worser if I don’t fix it . Wish me luck guys because I think its time for me to fix it!!

    • Viaa 96 the sooner you get it fixed, the better! You’ll be SO glad you did it. Best of luck 💛

  • You look great. I'm eight months post op. cs-tv.org/tv/video-UNuq3fuPLAU.html

  • How long did it take until you could open your mouth fully? Am just over a month in and still struggle to open my mouth fully.

    • It took quite a few months (maybe around 6) to feel like my mouth was opening to its fullest! I was hardly opening at one month, so don’t feel bad. It’ll take lots a patience!

  • i had jaw surgery 7 weeks ago and the swelling on my right face hasnt gone down. Ive watched other people with double jaw where their swelling goes down by 6 weeks.

    • Flippytop the surgery was to fix your bite or it was fractured?

    • @Calvin Daye i have 0 pain anywhere on my face

    • Flippytop Do you still have pain in your lip ? From the numbness?

  • Thank you!!!

  • Wil jaw surgery get rid of my jaw pain they want to do it cause I have an open bite with cross bite

    • Maria Gabriela well that gave me some hope I have a cross bite and open bite they have to break my jaw in 3 spots I’m scared lol. But I have been suffering with jaw pain every day

    • MitsubishiEvo10mr it got rid of my pain, for sure. Any issues I had with my jaw because of my underbite disappeared after surgery!

  • My skin got extremely oily after surgery? Do you have any tips ?

  • How cost your surgery?

  • Do you still have numbness in your lower lip and chin?

  • I’m still swollen but I am not happy with my nose right now I feel like it’s crooked a i little but I do like the added fullness to my top lip you look great btw.

    • Calvin Daye honestly you should be talking to your surgeon if you have questions and concerns instead of asking people on the internet

    • Calvin Daye no my pain went away like 1 week after that I was fine it’s take 4-6 months maybe a year to get feeling back

    • vtiredv So you had pain for about 4-6 months ?

    • Calvin Daye yes I had double jaw surgery bc of tmj and my bite with any jaw surgery it’s takes time

    • vtiredv you had the same problem ? But thank you tho for giving me hope lol

  • I was supposed to get the surgery, but I don't think I can get the surgery as its a bit to much for me going to be getting veneers instead to correct the bite alignment thanks for your videos! 🎉🌸

  • Did you feel any pain after the operation?

  • I’m almost bold.bolds are smart 😁

  • Best jaw surgery video! Thank you I’m scheduled for 2 October! Waited my whole life and 29years old finally getting it done 😄

    • Neelam Effendi I’m so excited for you!! It’s going to be an amazing experience and you’ll get the results you deserve! Best of luck!

  • Best jaw surgery video! Thank you I’m scheduled for 2 October! Waited my whole life and 29years old finally getting it done 😄

  • Can jaw surgery ruin your face? If surgeons make small mistakes?

    • Jaw surgeons are trained for YEARS to do this procedure. It’s normal to be scared because it’s a big surgery, but I promise you it’ll be great. Your face will not get ruined. You’ll still be the person you are right now. As long as you do your research, and pick a surgeon you trust, you won’t have any issues! :)

  • Hey! How long does it take to look normal again? I have to go on holidays around 3 months later and I’m scared I’m going to look like a beach ball in the face lol

    • Aaron Kasér haha that’s a totally normal concern! I actually went on a trip a month and a half after surgery and I looked great (in my opinion lol) except for the braces haha! You’ll definitely be more than great to go on holiday after 3 months! You’ll still have some swelling but you actually won’t even realize it’s there! It’s just minor swelling that’ll go down monthssss later. Nothing that’ll stand out to you or anyone else!

  • You give me hope that I’ll be able to open my mouth, eventually... I’m day 25 post op

    • You got this!! Keep doing exercises and pay attention to what your body is telling you. You’ll get there soon :)

  • Hi, I wanna get jaw surgery but I don't know who to talk to get it done? Do I go to my family doctor or do I go to an plastic surgeon doctor?

    • @Maria Gabriela Thank you.

    • Al Eu hi there! You should go to an orthodontist. That’s who will examine you and set you up with a surgeon :)

  • Lmao girl I got you!

  • Okay so I just wanted to share my story . So my name is Danny , I recently underwent upper jaw surgery on the 30th July 2019 . Today it’s the 8th of August. Firstly I want to start of by saying the first few days was complete hell . I was extremely depressed mostly because I was not aware of the healing process and also the swelling had scared the living life out of me . For the first two or three days my anxiety was supper bad , I found it hard to look at my reflection and I basically cried every day . Thinking about it now don’t have any friends in my current city that I can reach out to which sucks . I literally only had one family member by my side which I’m very great full for . However I just wish I was more aware of the entire process . For example I didn’t know the swelling would be this bad , I also didn’t know that the mucus at the back of my throat would prevent me from wanting to sleep due to anxiety. I know it’s only been a week but I’m finding it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel . The first few days I was feeling quiet suicidal which is a first for me as I’m not suicidal in general. Atm I’m so scared to fall asleep in case I choke and I’m sooo tired . I’ve had to stop my medication two days ago due to feeling constipated ( which is an horrible feeling ) the numbness doesn’t bother me but the swelling is immense . Atm I feel like I don’t have any social support which is sad . I just wish I had more information told to me rather than being told to research it myself ( I say this because if I was made more aware I don’t think I’d be as sad as I am now . I am thankful for the surgery and especially to the entire team that had a part in doing my surgery . The last two days have been way better anxiety wise , I was able to go out in public and not worry about those pointing fingers . My question to you is how long till the swelling goes down , do you still have trouble with mucus at the back of ur throat ? Also can u feel the top roof of your mouth from the inside ?im just so so scared of the outcome . I’m scared I won’t be able to feel my face , and /or go back to work without feeling down

    • @Agon Agon How are you now?? I'm about to have double jaw surgery

    • Thank you so much I really appreciate your reply . Hope your having a good week

    • Agon Agon Danny, first of all I just want you to know how PROUD I am of you for sharing your story. You are a fighter and an incredibly strong person for even getting the surgery. I promise you, with my whole heart, that it gets so much better. The first few weeks are so hard and it can seem like it’ll never change. But it WILL. You will look back in a few months and be so proud of yourself and thankful you did it. This whole journey is done for the LONG TERM results. What you’re dealing with now is real, but it’s not your future. To answer your questions: the swelling takes time, but it does go away. I’m now 10 months post op and I’ve never been happier. You’ll feel that way too. I have full feeling of my face, including the roof of my mouth. Eating, talking, and just living your life will get easier every single day. It’ll be hard to notice the improvements sometimes, but I promise your body is doing everything it can to get you back to normal. When you feel discouraged just think of where you were an hour after surgery. Or that first day. Whether you can tell or not, you’re already healing so much. It can only get better from here. I’m rooting for you. If you have questions or just want to talk feel free to email me or message me on Instagram (info in the description) Remember that you’re not alone and I know exactly what you’re going through. I’m living proof that it gets SO MUCH BETTER and that it IS WORTH IT. ❤️

  • Ahhhhh i get my surgery August 8th... Which is tomorrow😮😮

  • Waa told by my orthodontist not to use baking soda with braces because it will dissolve the adhesive that is used on the bands around your molars

  • I love you and your videos so much Maria! You've helped me get through my surgery like no other! Sending you love ❤

  • Am I watching KUWK . Girl we need experience advice and recommendations not corniness

    • kevin d have you watched my other videos where I show the terribly ugly experiences I went through? Clearly not. If you don’t find my videos helpful, don’t watch.

  • I have my double jaw surgery in 4 weeks so scared , doctors tell me its so risky to have as it might not attach back to skull afterwards. and could go wrong .

    • @Professional Portrait Artist Megz Artz ok all the best with your surgery God bless.

    • @nasser yousif no they will do surgery again until get it right .

    • @Professional Portrait Artist Megz Artz so if a jaw surgery dont go well what happens? The doctoes will just leave it the way it is?

    • @nasser yousif cos there is a risk to everything that's point of surgery's some might not go perfectly where as some will go good . it all depends . I know this cos my uncle is a surgeon

    • Then why would the doctoes perfrom the surgery if its risky wtf

  • u look like reese witherspoon lol

    • haha I get that a lot actually! I love her so THANK YOU :)

  • 6:13 thats tmj, as soon as you can get that fixed its not pretty otherwise... avoid chips and hard foods until that goes away.

    • How are your tmjs going now?

  • How long do you have to wait to get the braces off?

  • Were the braces covered by insurance?

  • Did the surgeon explain why your nose would change after surgery? If so, what did s/he say?

    • @Abigail oh, wow thank you so much for this info!

    • Ana Quintana hey I had doubly jaw surgery a few months ago and my nose has changed shape. My orthodontist told me this is because when the top jaw is moved it reduces the pressure placed on the sinus cavity which often pushes your nose outwards. So after surgery your nose might look a little different because your sinuses are more open as there is less pressure x

  • You look lovely with braces! Loving the updates! I’m also going to have surgery x

  • Did you have a nose surgery? You look so beautiful!!!*

  • Just accept whatver god gave ypu geez god couldnt make everyone perfect

    • @Fadje ja thats a myth to cover up cosmetic rpocedures

    • It's not genetics, mouth breathing and bad oral posture in childhood ruins your profile. Dr. John Mew, orthotropics. Weston Price.

    • You clearly haven’t watched my other videos because I’ve mentioned multiple times how happy I was with myself before surgery. I accepted and came to LOVE what I was born with. I chose to have the procedure because I had terrible pain in my jaw and I couldn’t eat normally. That’s called improving my wellbeing, not hating what I was born with. Before you pass judgement onto someone, make sure you know exactly what you’re assuming. Hope you have a great day and you learn to not be so negative.

  • You look amazing!!! .. and make me excited for my surgery .. I’m getting it October 2019 .. I do have a question 1: do you have to wear a retainer after you take your braces off ?

    • Usually your orthodontist will keep the braces on for a few months after. When they’re taken off you’ll be given either a retainer for night wear or invisaline. Sometimes you can get a permanent retainer which is a wire that is glued to the backs of your teeth to stop them from moving.

  • im having my jaw surgery on the 21st of february, does anyone who’s already gone through this have any tips or advice for me? i’m scared but super excited😅

    • caitlin-leigh x aw thank you so much ☺️ you aswell

    • Lily Keane thankyou so much and you’re super pretty!! x

    • Dont worry about it! I had it a month ago on the 8th and im one month post op. If youve got any questions snapchat me and ill chat you through it 😘💕 lily_keaneee

  • I just got the surgery Jan 15th and it’s about 3 weeks now. I am struggling so much brushing my teeth because the surgeon closed my mouth with rubber bands. It’s sooo hard to eat thicker liquids. How did you brush your teeth? Did you ever get stuff stuck in the splinter? My chin is also numb and I’ve heard from others that some of the feeling doesn’t come back fully so I’m afraid my bottom lip and chin won’t ever feel anything again. When did you start getting feeling? Or is there anyone else’s on here going through this same issue? 😟

    • Me too. Im one month post op, had it on the 8th and I’ve had trouble brushing but i went to my orthodontist and he changed my rubber bands. Id recommend taking off the bands to brush your teeth as its so hard to get in behind the teeth :( im still completely numb on my chin and lip but hopefully itll come back with time. I try to stimulate blood flow by pursing my lips etc and doing facial movements

  • Did you have to exercise your mouth opening? I m 1.5 month post opp and I am struggling with my jaw opening. I can only fit 1 finger. How was it for you?

    • Mimi were you wired or bandaged shut? Most people are and that’s what slows down the progress with opening the mouth. I wasn’t, so I started practicing opening day one. When you’re watching tv or doing nothing, practice opening and moving it side to side. It seems boring but it makes a huge difference over time!

  • I am having jaw surgery on February 5
