Man, I thought this whole time you were talking about USD. For 28k euros the movements need to be worth it. Are the braces part of that cost, and did your dentist communicate with Dr. A so they know what to do

[Continuing my previous thread]

I will soon meet Alfaro for the last time before surgery. Will have the tests done and get the plan for surgery

Im not scared about anesthesia or having surgery done but i start to feel nervous, the restless nights have been haunting me for a couple of weeks with questions: what if after paying so much the results arent worth it? Should i keep the money and give up looksmaxing? Will it really improve my life?

Soon ill will be able to see a prediction of what can be done. I dont imagine myself with better facial traits, i really need to see that computerized prediction of what can be achieved realistically.

A week after i will get to the point of no return, getting the braces put on my teeth for the treatment after surgery.

Will report after planning day.
update?

This is definitely concerning. I hope they pull through. I'm surprised you weren't shown a plan before you paid for the surgery. Alfaro may fall out of consideration for me if your result - if you decide to go through with it - is subpar.

I had to advance in july 1k as a reservation fee (discounted from the total), if i pull out i would lose it probably.

Then, inside the total price, theres the "scan, custom splint, bla bla" fee which is about 3k and i hope they dont intend to charge me if i cancel surgery.

I emailed his manager and said that before paying anything i would like to see "something", that i want to know if i can have good movements done or not and as a client i feel like i should have information. She just replied "i understand you completely and will comment this with the doctor". It really feels like people mindlessly go just to fix their issues but without maximum aesthetic goal in mind, i feel like im the "annoying" or "weird" client that demands more than the others.

No reply since then, emailed her again yesterday warning her about how close the surgery date is, but now its weekend so i dont expect any news until monday.

I was hyped about the surgery all this summer and that feeling is gone now, i should be counting the days in excitement but instead im having bad stress.

Fuck, does ccw mean you end up with this angled jaw instead of a straight jawline? SixCRY @SixCRY
No. Ccw does nothing for the mandible body shape. It simply rotates the maxilla and mandible. The anchor points for the rotation should be known. But if you don’t. The mandible gets cut around the gonions and then just gets slided forward. If the maxilla is rotated you rotate the mandible accordingly. The mandible body does not change shape. The guy in the pic simply has a round mandible

Ok that’s what I originally thought but you see why the insta post kind of indicates otherwise yeah?

His jaw didn’t change shape. You can’t even see his mandible body bone in the before since it’s hidden by the submental area

Mh yeah I get what you’re seeing. Didn’t even see the X-ray. I only ever looked at the results and I never noticed a visible change.

I guess it heavily depends on the cut.

As you can see the dal Pont Splits the mandible body mid body. The Obwegeser 1957 (there are multiple Obwegeser) right at the beginning so it can’t have any effect on the body.

But yeah. Asking surgeons always the best

bsso is not a cut like ur totally separating bone, it's a mid split and it's extend to the gonion

Split. Cut. Whatever. But do you agree that if you don’t get a dal pont that the mandible body itself stays the same ?

like if I get a high bsso it defenitly won’t change. That’s physically impossible. If I get a obwegeser 1957 it shouldn’t either right? Only if you get a dal pont I can see that happening when getting ccw

it does change , the dalpont cut goes to gonion , bsso doesn't truly cut the mandivule , it opens it

Ok well, they just send me a video simulation. Its shows soft tissues with transparency so combined with bones its weird to watch but you can get an idea of the movements. It shows no numbers, im curious about advancement in millimeters and i asked if its possible to know.

He told me he would add genio, but according to this video i dont see or recognize any, i asked about this too...

From a front view my jaw and chin will be wider (thats what the bones show) im happy to see something finally.

Tomorrow i go for covid test

How do your cheeks look ? I imagine the cheek area looks fuller due to the maxilla being more forward ?

does Alfaro allow you to have input on the degree of occlusal plane?

sorry they made you feel that way. they shouldn’t stonewall someone on the intricate details of a life changing surgery. youre paying big bucks, it should be complementary.

anyway happy for you, good luck

Alfaro brings mogger movements again. Damn:) I think "normal" surgeons are conservative, BSSO max 10-12mm because relapse risks

I have inflamation so its pretty hard to swallow, i must take very small slips... need like 15 minutes to drink 200ml and that is with coughing and spitting everywhere

I have to keep cleaning with a waterpik and theres always some blood

As soon as they gave me the green light i took a taxi to the airport, catch a 30min flight and im home. Im sleeping 1hour naps all day.

In terms of annoying:

Pain 4/10
Trouble spitting or swallowing 10/10
When i wake up dizzy from anestesia 30000/10 its like when you almost pass out with alcohol but way worse and lasted like 3 or 4 hours

I heard the dizziness after anaesthesia comes from swallowing blood during the surgery. This is normal. I'm glad all went well. Will you be on the before/after pictures and videos on Instagram or YouTube?

Yes, big movements if you had flat face. 10mm LF1 sounds kinda ballsy but surely there's enough CCW to avoid dogface.

How was the clinic and operation experience, friendly and good? I feel like Alfaro is "let's get down to business" style, not too much communication as the clinic didn't even want to tell anything about your movements:think: Thanks for the updates.

Yes Alfaro goes straight to the point, ive read this many times also.
They finally sent me simulation and movements but only because i asked...
After surgery alfaro told me "so, are we friends now?" and i dont know if he meant it because i was asking the plan or as a joke because he just made surgery on me.
They also give you some private website with videos and articles about the surgery, how to deal with inflammation, how to use the waterpik... bla bla... very good info.


Today since a few hours ago im in some heavy pain in my jaw. They gave me prescription for valium but forgot to buy it.
So there was two options, paracetamol which is the usual or injectable nolotil. Since ive done steroids in the past i injected myself nolotil, didnt do shit, took also paracetamol, still didnt do anything. So i took an alprazolam and tramadol i had at home. I feel sleepy as fuck but still cannot sleep because i still feel annoying jaw.

He def said that because you were pestering about the simulation. Don’t feel bad though, he’s a professional so in his mind he knows what to do and how to make someone look good—therefore doesn’t want to bother with simulations and movement info.

Glad you got the surgery, thanks for making a post about it and helping myself along with others while you went on this journey.

I plan on seeing him too, but I’m in US. If I have to fly over for consultations, it’s probably gonna be too expensive for me, plus there’s the risks/complications probability; are you worried about that with such large movements?
