Gosh...it's been a little over four years since my jaw surgery and sliding genio and just thought I'd post an update to how I'm doing four years later. I love smile, I give Dr. Kawakami in Sierra Vista, AZ all the thanks!! He did an awesome job for going into braces for the second time around. I had braces in my early twenties and was told I needed the surgery back then but didn't have the insurance to cover it back then. Dr. Wood in Tucson who did my lower jaw advancement surgery was great! I've had no issues at all except with an ongoing slight numbness in my lower lip and chin area. Overall, I have had so many compliments on what a great smile I have and I tell people that I paid a lot of money for this smile but it was so worth it in the end.
