I recently just had jaw surgery done and it has been a nightmare. It was my first and only surgery and it was a surgery I have dreamed of having since I was in high school because of the asymetry on my face. ( I am now 27) I was pretty before and I always had boyfriends, was always very social and felt confident (with the exception of my jaw.) I have been working since I was sixteen but really started saving from the age of 20. I finally had enough money to get braces and surgery and I thought that this will make me flawless, perfect, even better than before. I got my jaw done december 8th and ever since that day my life has turned upside down Its like a bad dream that I hope to wake up from every day. I get up every morning hoping to see my old face and every morning my heart drops and crying has become a ritual. Some days its hard to get out of bed at all. The results were so bad that I am now traumatized emotionally and mentally to the point where I have developed social anxiety and hide away at home day and night. The one time I went out I came back home in tears because men looked at me differently like they were repulsed and definitely didnt find me attractive. I feel as though this surgery has taken away my life. My spirit has died and at the age of 27 and I feel as though I have no chance of living a normal life again. My jaw was long and slender and feminine and my surgeon for some crazy reason added inches to both sides of my faces and made it square and on top of that didnt even correct the problem that I initially went to him for which was asymmetry. My jaw was sharp and thin and it now is thick and shapeless. The whole jaw not only still looks asymmetrical but it looks even more uneven than before because he added material on some parts of my jaw and some are still my original thin bone. In person if you look at my face you will see that the shape is deformed. My friends have all said that I should get it redone but I dont want to go back to the same surgeon because he obviously doesnt know what he is doing and I dont have 30,000 dollars to pay another surgeon. I saved up for this surgery all my life. Its devastating. I have heard rumors about what coworkers have been saying behind my back. They all pity me and criticize me for even going to get surgery.

Chrissy...I am so sorry. Please disregard your rude co-workers because if this is their attitude, they were never really your friends. Your true friends will stand behind you and help you make it through this devastating experience.
