As you can see I'm not the ugliest person alive for sure, but I do have a glaring facial flaw. This is especially the case if you look at my face from the side.
The operations I will need to have a more projected lower third in my face, and probably better functional biting in the future (but that's not the main reason I'm getting them) are this; a LeFort 1 with counter clockwise rotation of the upper jaw and my lower jaw moved forward. This will retain my already decent bite, but also give me an actual chin and jawline.
You may be wondering; "is the procedure plastic surgery or medical?" Most people don't know this, I didn't understand it either at first; in the case of orthognatic surgery, the line is blurred. What looks better will also look better, I won't have the snoring issues my dad developed when I'm his age because my airway will be opened up.
I am not doing this for anybody except for myself, if my attitude and beliefs didn't already show you I don't care about the opposite gender, the same gender, the other genders, or any member of the human race then let me tell you that right now.
I'm currently 6'1 and 165 pounds, I starved myself down 25 pounds so that I could get a less bloated face but it seems like recessed jaws are what's caused this. I have a very weak bone structure.
I have $30,000 of my own money right now thanks to a fun incident regarding Bitcoin. I put that money in apple stocks. I may have to borrow $25,000 or so from my family and pay that back over a few years for this surgery.
I feel like it will solve a problem with my face I obsess over for 5-6 hours a day and that impacts my daily life immensely. The surgeon I want to go with is Michael J Gunson. He is the best surgeon in the world for this procedure and most of the other surgeons, even those who have trained under him, have failed at least a few of their procedures. Gunson has never failed a procedure and is known to be a total perfectionist both in attitude and results.
"Getting plastic surgery makes you look like a doll!"
This doesn't make any sense in the slightest bit. How can slightly changing one of your facial features make you look like a doll?
The procedures that people are usually thinking of are cosmetic procedures which are quite literally not plastic surgery; such as botox, fillers, or soft tissue augmentation. I don't feel like I have to explain this to anybody with half a brain but if you want to dispute that plastic surgery results are worth it if you go with a good surgeon and are smart in what you ask for, please do message me back.
I've even heard the ridiculous view that "plastic surgery will make you objectively unattractive, that is a fact." This is again, simply not true.
The reason why I want to have this risky and nonreversable procedure instead of going the normal route and getting silicon implants is because this actually augments the bone of the face itself. It will also give me more maxilla projection which implants cannot do, as I have a recessed maxilla bone.
Those are just my plans. I plan to consult with Gunson and have the surgery done and everything before I turn 19.
