Chinderella – it’s an orthognathic fairytale, you see.

6 months and a bit, actually

1. Orthobloggers, hello! I’ve missed you. Life has got that bad habit of acting as if no orthognathic surgery had happened, as if if everything was normal.. wait, it’s a good thing, isn’t it?

2. I must confess I haven’tย  been nearly narcissistic enough recently -for the purposes of this blog anyway. No new picture of my de-puffed, Class I face; I promise to remedy the matter on my return to London early next week.

3. Would you like brace-free teeth for Christmas? My ortho asked at the beginning of the month.

4. I stared at her, uncomprehending, used to our routine: I take the train to Lille for my appointment, need sedation for lunch, sit in her chair all muscles and nerves taut; she tortures me with a big jovial grin, asks me questions I can’t answer, then sends me on my way; I go shopping to make myself feel better. Repeat ad infinitum at a 5 or 6 week frequency.

5. She almost took the top ones off, blogpeople! Then decided it was not to be til the next appointment, mid-january.

6. I’m a bit scared of losing my pout, now. Yet, is it worth keeping your barces on for life just for the sake of some added poutness? No, I hear you, and you’re right.

7. It looks like by the end of February I’ll have naked teeth – that’ll be 2 years of braces exactly. So, the OS knew what she was saying, then.

Be well, thank you for stopping by!



  1. “Hello!” back at you, and it IS a good thing!
    We miss you too, but what sweet reassurance that real life takes over again at some point in time ๐Ÿ™‚

    Braces off for Christmas?~ Oh my, what a tease. Don’t ask if your not going to follow through, Ortho Lady…. pout or not, haha.

    Let the countdown begin! Does it feel like it’s been two years? or a Lifetime?

  5. Your blog has been most entertaining. I had sever underbite as well and just went through upper and lower jaw surgery. I am 11 days post-op and it is quite a struggle going through this procedure.

    Thanks you for your blog
