Hi Dr. Hughes.
I am 17 years old and have had braces for about a year now. In December (hopefully) I am due to undergo surgery to correct my underbite. They plan to put plates into my top jaw to widen it and therefore bring it in line with my lower jaw which is not being operated on. Although I am fairly confident about the surgery, I have seen some scary pictures statistics and possible risks over the internet which have worried me. Please could you tell me how bad the recovery process will be and what are the risks in the surgery? thank- you
