MOST RECENT

Same face / different face. A week since surgery. I'm still really swollen but here's my new face shape 🙂 #djs #doublejawsurgery #class3malocclusion

🌻10 Weeks Post-Op🌻
I wasn’t going to post anything today but as I signed on to my FB account I got a notification for those “tagged photos” that I’ve always dreaded before surgery. You know that feeling when someone else would take a picture of you and kinda hated it because you wouldn’t know how your face would turn out in them 🤔? That was me for the past 15 years or so 🤷🏻‍♀️ So I clicked on the notification and to my surprise I actually liked how I turned out 🙂 The left was taken late January of this year and the right was taken just this weekend. Cheers to no longer being shy in front of the camera anymore! I said it before and I’ll say it again, this surgery has changed my life in so many ways. No longer do I feel the need to hide myself during family get togethers, special occasions, parties etc. Never in a million years would I have thought that it was even a possibility for me to feel truly happy in front of a camera.
P.S. Excuse my really bad tan line 🤣 I got sunburned like a week ago when I went to the Flower Fields 😭 Always wear SPF guys! .

☀️Morning Thoughts☀️
I really didn’t think I changed drastically after this surgery but comparing old photos with the new ones shows that I did. It’s definitely a learning process and I’m so much happier now than I ever was back then. P.S. I still feel awkward smiling with my teeth in public but I’m sure I’ll get there soon 🤣 On a different note, I think I mastered RBF (resting bitch face) .

Still can’t believe 9 weeks have flown by so quickly. I have nothing to update. I just wanted to post a collection of photos over the course of my recovery. Wondering how I’ll feel/look at my 6 month mark 🤔

🌼 9 Weeks Post-Op 🌼
Not much has changed since last week so I want to share something personal with you guys.

I actually mentioned this on my personal IG (@jomamiiiii), but for those who haven’t seen it I wanted to post this to help others who are suffering from either a jaw deformity or alopecia. In 2015, I was diagnosed with alopecia areata while struggling with my underbite. It was a really rough period for me and caused me to question everything. Why did I have to go through this when I was already having a tough time living with my underbite? It was a traumatic experience but also a life lesson. I pushed through it with the help of my loved ones and I stayed positive despite being dealt with a bad band. As I mentioned in my original post, neither conditions were life threatening but both were incredibly life draining. I am proud to say that I’m 100% alopecia free and although I’m still recovering from jaw surgery I know that I’ll get through it too.
To those who are going through something painful, no matter what it is, please know that it will get better. It may not happen in an instant but know that when it finally does, as cliché as it sounds, it will be so very worth it. You have no freaking clue.
To anyone who is currently battling with the thought of not being pretty enough, skinny enough, smart enough, or just good enough, you are. You are enough. You are valued and you are loved. I’m lucky to have people who remind me every single day that I am. No one else has the power to tell you you are not. They only have the power if you choose to give it to them, so a word of advice? Don’t.

I never thought the day would come that I would finally get braces. I still remember the excitement I felt that day. By night time my teeth hurt so bad I was asking myself..what have you done?!!!! Today was my year anniversary of getting them removed but is still so surreal to smile and see teeth that are aligned!!! #bracefacenomore #railroadtracksnomore #bracesgone #gapclosed #prettyteeth #nomoreteethspurs #nomorerubberbands #retainerlife #class3malocclusion #nomoreunderbite #saycheese📷

Thought I’d share something a little more personal today 🙂 Explored the flower fields in Carlsbad, CA with my favorite human on our 8th anniversary and although it can’t compare, it’s the closest we can get to the tulip fields in the Netherlands 🌷

On this day six months ago I was in recovery after double jaw surgery. Isn't it funny that it was also Friday the 13th? So happy I went through with it 😊

✨2 Months Post-Op 4/10/18✨
First time I put on a full face of make-up to cover the left over swelling I still have 😅 So loving my new smile and I know I said I’d stop with the angles but they’re pretty much a girl’s best friend 🤣 My 8th week post-op appointment is tomorrow and clearly hoping for good news 🙏🏼 At this point of recovery, I’m so happy and thankful that I did this surgery. I feel so much stronger especially when doing cardio every other day because I can finally breathe! It’s also really given me a boost of confidence that I so badly needed! I hope this encourages those who are considering surgery or are in their early stages of recovery 🤗 It’s definitely worth it 🙌🏼

🌟Day 53 Post-Op 4/6/18🌟
I’m a little over 7 weeks in these photos I took today. Can’t believe next week will mark 2 months! Time really flies after the first 4 weeks 🙂 Swelling is going down little by little everyday and it’s getting less noticeable to the people around me. Of course I still notice there’s a lot more to go! How much smaller can one’s face get 🤔 A small gap is starting to form between my top teeth as the one elastic I’m required to have is positioning my midline in the right place. Next week is my 8 week post-op appointment and hoping I don’t hit any bumps on the road to recovery 🤞🏼 Stay tuned for more weekly updates!

🌟Day 46 Post-Op 3/30/18🌟
Sorry for the late post! I’m a little over 6 weeks which was this past Tuesday. So far I’m still pretty numb from my bottom lip and below but I do feel some sensation. I’ve gained about 98% feeling back on my right cheek and about 90% on my left cheek. Bruising is almost gone! Hopefully completely gone by the 7th 🙏🏼 I can fit about 3 fingers in my mouth which is the widest I can open. I’ll be updating weekly from now on since I forget to take pictures every single day 😅 .

Bring on all the gaps! No wonder my teeth have been feeling different lately! My first adjustment is in a week & a half! I think I’m going to try silver bands. I got tired of this color.
ANY COLOR RECOMMENDATIONS?
also, is it just me or does the varnish they paint on before placing brackets make your teeth look yellow!?! Making me crazy!! #braceface #adultbraces #class3malocclusion #underbitebraces

MARCH 23 UPDATE! #jawsurgery #underbite #orthodontics #class3malocclusion NEXT UPDATE in a month. ****Any questions about jaw surgery, just ask! ****

🌟Day 33 Post-Op 03/17/18🌟

Feeling so good that I felt the need to put some tinted moisturizer and lip balm today 🤗 Going out with a friend today and hopefully get some errands done 🙌🏼 Now I understand that once you hit the 30 day mark you really get that itch to socialize 🙃 How long did it take for your bruising to go away 🤔 Mine is clearly taking a lifetime 🙄

🌟Day 30 Post-Op 03/14/18🌟
Came back from my first ortho appointment since the surgery and it went really well 🤗 I’ll be going back to see my ortho again in 8 weeks. If all goes according to plan, I should get my braces off by August 🤞🏼 They replaced the top wire to fix my top teeth and I only have one rubber band to wear 🙃 Everyone said they didn’t recognize me which I guess is a good thing 😆 And although this has nothing to do with jaw surgery, I was able to get tickets to see Queen B and Jay this September 🙌🏼 Super ecstatic about it since I’ll be looking somewhat normal by then and hopefully brace free 🙏🏼 .
