Brielle Biermann, 25, is sharing the struggles she endured after her jaw surgery last year. Not only is the surgery itself a daunting process but the aftermath was just as challenging for Brielle. She posted a pic of her flipping off the camera as her lips as well as the rest of the bottom of her face was as swollen as can be. “Never forget when I looked like this,” she wrote along with the pic on her Instagram Story. “2 days after double jaw surgery.” Take a look at the drastic swelling for yourself here.
Brielle even clarified that her lips weren’t extra big because of her lip injections because she had to have them removed ahead of the surgery. “let it be known I had no lip injections at this time,” she wrote along with another picture of her face swollen and jaw wired shut. “I had to dissolve it allllll before surgery which was a b**ch.” She also vented that because she had her jaw wired, she had to be on an all-liquid diet which caused her to lose 15 pounds and she was “not happy.”
She shared that she had the surgery in August 2021. At that time, she posted some other pictures of her rough recovery from the surgery and shared why she had the surgery in the first place. “sooooo… i had double jaw surgery on august 23 to correct my tmj & 9 mm overjet overbite. this was NOT for aesthetics but for quality of life,” she explained.
“I sucked my thumb til i was 9 ishhh which made the roof of my mouth suuuuuper narrow and my excessive overbite cause my teeth to have no contact whatsoever,” she continued. She explained that she struggled eating everyday food like pizza because of her overbite and also revealed it caused her to have a bit of a lisp.
Brielle also admitted that she was really nervous going into the surgery.“I was so scared,” she continued. “I was completely dreading this surgery fearing the worst of the worst but thankfully with my positive mindset, strong family & friends support system … I got thru the first two weeks, which are supposed to be the hardest, easy breezy!” While she seems to be admitting the recovery wasn’t so easy breezy now, it seems she still got through it and can put all of it behind her.
