  • My Jaw.....

    Ok, from the beginning: When I was in 6th grade I got some sort of reaction to something, I think....and the right side of my jaw became swolen. Bad. The doc, if I remember correctly, said it was some sort of mumps(is that how you spell it?). Years later and the right side of my jaw is noticably larger than my left. My left being my more normal side. It's not super huge or anything and it hasn't ruined my sexlife, but you can notice it. When I look in the mirror it looks normal and.....In the mirror I dashing....but when I look at photos I look like someone with an odd shaped face. None of the girls I've been with had a problem with it and my current girl doesn't consider it some sort of flaw........But I do. I want to compete and I would suppose that judges take the facial image into consideration along with an awsome body when naming the winner of a show, and I don't want my weird jaw to be my burden. I went to a specialist years ago to get a nuclear test to see if my bones were still growing....and they were so he told me to come back a year later. I didn't go because I didn't have insurance anymore. Now, today, I look in the mirror and wish that the same guy I see on the other side can be seen by all and in photos. What can I do? I've never gone through surgury or anything and I just want to see what I can do to fix what I consider my biggest flaw.... So I thought what better place than the MD forums to get some info. Help me out guys. Please.

    Hallo friend,also I have this problem.
    I am effecting orthodontic therapy and I will undergo an operation me among a few months.
    In Italy jaw surgery is paid from the national sanitary system, I hope both so also in your country.

        What, exactly, did they do? I mean, at one time they said my entire jaw had to be removed and worked on! Needless to say..the thought of the most integral part of my dieting, the ability to chomp down on many meals, will be in danger of being tampered with. Quite scary to say the least. And absolutely not, my country doesn't cover anything. But hopefully my insurance might.

          For this type of surgery you it needs to effect an orthodontic preparation before, it can last from one to three years, it depends on your dental condition.
          After jaw surgery you for one month can eat only liquid foods, beaten, milk, proteins in dust etc.
          Surely we will lose some lbs, but we can take back lbs later with a best quality of life
          Today however the maxillary surgery is very evolved and the total rehabilitation is very faster in comparison to some years ago.

                  Myself as well. The problem has always been within myself, it hasn't really been a problem with others. And since it is MY problem I take it to the heart and would like to fix it.

                      How long did it take to heal? How long before you could train hard again?

                      I know everyone is different, but I'd like to know your story
                      you better believe it !!

                        Can not you train? After 6 months? I worry me
                        I will make jaw surgery in 2-3 months
                        Would I like to know how it goes to you, are you happy of your surgery? etc. etc.

                            I still haven't cunsulted an orthodontist.....probably because I'm scared. I just don't know what to expect, I suppose. I'm afraid I'll walk into the office and they'll tell me that they can't help me.....
