How is the jawline surgery? I can imagine that it's painful and how long is the recovery period? I don't want to cut the soft pallet

What did you find out about it? I have a receding jaw all my life. My dentist said if you are a young child they can fix it. But at my age, 46, he acted like they couldn't without a lot of surgery. So he got a sleep appliance for me, which i haven't really worn yet, since I hate having the device in my mouth.

I would go to another doctor if I were you. I have seen people who are 60 years old and have had jaw surgery. It sounds like he's not giving you great advice and is just trying to screw with you. I like CPAP but cpap alone won't help solve my problems as my face needs an entire reconstruction to fix it up.I reckon that most people are born with a receding jawline or don't get braces early on in life because they feel the cost is too much but I don't blame them, however, no one thinks of the long term problems.
