I had my long-awaited and much anticipated cross bite correction surgery last summer. It was a very big ordeal, and it cost a lot of money. I’m very thankful to my husband for looking after me before and after surgery and to all my supportive friends and fans who pitched in so I could afford to get it done. Even with your contributions, my insurance coverage and my entire FLEX account, the surgery initially licked my savings clean. And I had saved a lot of money freelancing over three years. So thanks. Couldn’t have done it without you!
I’ve only just started recognizing myself in the mirror again. The changes to my face shape are very small, but I have trouble recognizing people’s faces. I had this done last summer, so it’s been awhile. I’m happy to finally see myself in the mirror again. Here are before and after pictures:
And good news! My braces come off on May 11th (god willing and the creek don’t rise, as my mum would say)!
