[ID hospital] Say goodbye to a long face~ Orthognathic surgery experience at ID hospital

Real people, real results





   Hyungwook Cho   


Age : 25
Symptoms : Mandibular prognathism, long face
Type of surgery : No-tie two jaw surgery




 Before the surgery



I had braces when I was young, it ended up becoming one of the reason that has caused this developed lower jaw.
My orthodontist recommended me to have braces only on my upper teeth when I was 14. I don't know what went wrong but as a result, it has caused a malocclusion and long jaw.

I have decided to undergo two jaw surgery to correct my long face as well as prominent chin, malocclusion and facial asymmetry. Above are the photos taken before the surgery. As you can see from the photos, my face is quite long in general and my left and right face are slightly different.


 Surgery day



I went to the hospital early in the morning. After changing my clothes, I've met my doctor and senior consultant. I had an air-shower before entering the surgery room. I was lying down on the bed and an anesthetist asked me if I'm scared. She says I might feel some weird sensation and then, shortly I fell into a sleep.

Then someone suddenly woke me up and surgery was already finished. I was being carried to the recovery room. I felt like I only had 5 minutes sleep.

I had some fever and headache on the surgery day. Nurses were taking care of me good and asked me to breath out all the anesthesia gases. But I kept falling a sleep when they are gone.  haha

I didn't have too much discomfort in the evening, but sputum on the throat was kinda annoying.
I've called nurses every hour to have suction.   


 1 week after the surgery




I had my first post treatment and swelling care session.
I've had swelling care at Face-diet and had the stitches behind the ears removed.

I didn't feel much pain when the stitches were removed. I've heard that I can resume brushing teeth, using children's toothbrush carefully.
Wafer has to be removed and cleaned when I gargle.

It seems like I don't have much swelling or bruising compared to other patients.
I wanted to say thank you to Dr. Jong yoon Kim, who performed my surgery but I realized he wouldn't understand anyway, as I have a wafer in my mouth.

I've heard that now I can eat food like silken tofu, steamed egg, chopped noodle and soft fish.  So I went to the Ramen place straight away. haha


 1 month from the surgery


I've started post orthodontic treatment at ID dental hospital.
I also went to plastic surgery side to check with my doctor. As you can see from the photo, there are some swelling left around my face, considering that I originally have almost no fat.
But I'm enjoying this phase because it makes me look younger~


 2 months from the surgery



It's already been two months from the surgery.
The doctor says I still have some swelling left. And my philtrum will become more smaller.
My lips look a bit strange for now. I will try my best to reduce the left swelling and focus on getting taking care of braces properly.


 3 months from the surgery





When I read other patients' reviews, they feel a bit strange looking at their old photos.
But I feel very comfortable for both, my old and new face. haha

I thought this was going to be the only surgery I have, but since I've become to have smaller face, I  want to get another ones.. now I understand girls. 

I eat almost anything, except really chewy dried fish or squid. I think I can eat but I personally don't like them anyway. I still can eat thin ones, just avoiding very thick and hard ones.

I have this new habit that walking around holding toothbrush all the time, because of braces.



 6 months from the surgery





It's been 6 months! I'm sure all swelling are gone now.
There were no specific issues, I just wish the orthodontic treatment would finish soon.

  1. I already bookmarked your blog page. I hope you post more articles soon. The recovery time is somewhat longer for any rhinoplasty, along with much more bruising, nevertheless is in most cases ok within a month. It normally takes somewhat longer when compared to that for any nose to settle into the desired shape, nevertheless noses are funny like that.
