Do you know if he does a custom one and how much does he charge? Does he use Peek? You can PM me if the price discussion is private.

Have you had any surgical clinics make a custom morph for you to predict what implants would look like on you? If so, could you post them?

You are going to look really good in about 6 months tbh

Congrats on taking a big step and going forward with surgery! It's a long process.

Have you thought about buccal fat removal? It seems you store more fat on the cheeks.

Also I think the wraparound implants Will improve even more your looks.
Did Dr Ramieri told you how long you have to wait after DJS to get the wraparound implants?

And thanks for your contribution 💪

Gaia262 @Gaia262 Looks really good! A custom jaw implant when you're healed from the bimax will definitely enhance the results.

Also, I think you posted a pic of the actual implant being held whilst while you were on the table. I can't find it in the thread anymore, can you repost or tag if it's somewhere else? Thanks.

Also, you said your family wasn't necessarily supportive of it. What do they think now and how have they reacted?

Thanks man happy to help you out , he hasn't given a timeline but we are to review at 6 months so February /March time.

Dr Ramieri is all for the buccal fat removal, but I'm thinking the implant will stretch the soft tissue instead. So its not needed.

Thanks man , hope to document my wrap around journey as its something we discuss here alot but we don't have much guides on.

My family are now supportive of it as the swelling is coming down and its better. But when I was swollen and had major surgical weightloss they were practically hostile.

Its true what people say how people treat you is directly correlated to what you look like including your family.

Thanks for the pic!

That sounds really gratifying.

I'm in a much starting better position personally but the friends I've told about jaw surgery are like wtf? They think I'm delusional since my bite is good and my proportions are normal.

And I think you should probably go for the buccal fat pad removal.

A combination of the bony augmentation and fat reduction from the soft tissue is subtle but can be really dramatic at the same time.

It would especially benefit you since you have thick tissue and round cheeks.

Was your PEEK implant fixated using metal screws? Was just reading through Taban's Infraorbital implants section on his website and according to him complications are more often if the implant is placed with improper technique and fixated with metal screws (can actually fuck up your eye area more + infections etc).

Also, would it be possible to see the design of the implant that Ramieri sent you for approval? I basically want to see how much of the infraorbital and malar region it covers

Yes it was fixated by a metal screw.




Taban uses silicone and its not custom. It costs $14,000 with him last time i checked.

Update looks great. I'm surprised by how swollen your cheeks still are. Have you looked into a lymphatic drainage message? Apparently they're quite helpful for DJS

Thanks man, swelling is taking ages, i did self massages for the first few months but now just leave it to heal on its own.

Yes, to discuss the movements and what teeth the position need to be in before he can operate, he will coordinate with your orthodontist.

You may not need this and be a surgery first canidate.

As always with bimax... let me guess, side profile improved but frontal there is no difference. Am i correct? If yes, now you need to get implants as a next step.

Ngl i'm most interested in his simulation of surgical movements, do you think i could get a CT scan or whatever he needs in my country and send him the files so he could make a simulation remotely? Or would i have to see him in his office to get all the measurements and scans done?

I think it has to be done with him in office, most likely how his scans are done. You can email him to enquire to double check if he can do this for you.

This might be a super specific question, but from your experience, is Ramieri willing to give large movements like Alfaro or Gunson?

Do you know how many mm maximum he gives for movements? Especially regarding LF1, BSSO and downgrafting.

He worries about giving you defects like chimp limp, so doesn't go overboard.

Another question: does Ramieri use minimally invasive techniques? Alfaro advertises this a lot, and it seems like his patients recover pretty quickly. I wonder how much these techniques are unique to him vs. more common.

I know Dr Ramieri specialises in the most modern techniques in maxilofacial surgeries. His PhD is in modern technologies.

I can't confirm exactly how he does his physical cuts. He did offer me two ways of doing the bsso cut, but i went for the normal way.

You could drop him an email to confirm.

Was the genioplasty pointless as you are now having the wrap around jaw implant? have you considered just gonial angle implants and skip the chin prostheses or are you not happy with the genioplasty? also do you know if its possible to have bsso and wrap around implant in the same surgery ty bro

The genio was basically free with the bimax it would of cost me the same 15k euros without it. I am happy to of had it.

For having the both at the same time it is possible, there will have to be meticulous planning to make sure it fits. it is common to do a BSSO and a jaw implant at the same time.
