짱이뻐! - Goodbye Long Face, Hello KPOP Superstar

I have been diagnosed with having a long and asymmetric face … So don’t judge me for getting Korean two jaw surgery just for the ‘aesthetic improvements.’ I need to also improve my jaw functions as well ^^.

Because of my long and crooked face I was teased a lot since I was a kid..They called me names like horse, old woman, and worse T.T Maybe it was due to my jaws being unbalanced but I would sometimes hear clicking sounds as well;;;.

While researching famous clinics for the best Korean two jaw surgeries, I came across Wonjin Plastic Surgery, the Korean two jaw surgery specialized hospital and I got a consultation. 
The nurses and consultants were so pretty and informative~ The scale of the clinic was huge and top notch too! So.. I decided to get a surgery reservation hehe. I’m quite nervous..I see some Korean celebrities getting two jaw surgery and becoming beautiful, and I hope I can be more beautiful too! 
I just can’t wait ~~~

It’s finally the day of surgery~! I came to the clinic extra early because I was so excited and nervous.
I was told to change into a gown and did as instructed..it was a bit cold while I was waiting for the doctor and I got scared;;; The kind nurse reassured me that everything would be fine when I wake up after surgery …
When I awoke, I was in the recovery room.

My surgery was finished but wow I look pretty awful right? 
I keep getting phlegm and it’s difficult to breathe, it was difficult to sleep that night T.T

I got discharged and I got to go home. My take home kit was full of goodies, including some medicine to help reduce swelling!

Maybe cuz I was at home, but I was able to get some much needed rest hehe. 
Just like I was told, my 3rd day I swelled up like a balloon… I’m going to have to start taking walks soon T.T

I’ve started my recovery in earnest! 
It was difficult to take my medicines, but now I am used to the taste and I take it diligently. 
I started taking walks today because I heard it’s helpful in reducing swelling~ 
I’m embarrassed with how I look currently, and so I always put on a mask when I go out hehe.

It’s exactly 2 weeks after my surgery, and it’s back to school T.T 
I was nervous going back to school because my cheeks looked puffy but when I arrived my friends reactions were great!

They all gave me compliments, told me I look younger and more pretty hehe!

It’s one month after my surgery ? I still have to put on my wafer but I can still eat pizza and fried seasoned pork haha. As long as I have my trusty scissors and cut them into bite size portions hehe!

Here’s a selfie I took while waiting for my friend.
Before when I took selfies I was so concerned with my long jaw, and I had to edit my photos but now I can upload all my photos immediately! 

This selfie is one I will send to my boyfriend. We haven’t seen each other much lately, but I wanted to show him my new cuter side in advance ^^

Before my surgery, my nicknames were long jaw, moon face,… among these the best one was 1000m I.U. (I resemble the singer IU from  1000 meters away…) 
But these days, I often hear that I look like a celebrity hehehe. 
Among them, IU (of course), Kang Min Kyung, and even Shin Min Ah (a stretch I know ^^) 
It’s the first time I have ever been given positive nicknames T.T

I feel much more confident when people say I have become prettier, and I can also eat better too! Life’s good!!!

I am busy going to the dentist and getting my braces checked. 
Braces are a little uncomfortable but I will endure to get prettier! 

Korean two jaw surgery..It’s a major surgery and one that should not be taken lightly. I’m so fortunate that I am healing well, I wish I got it done sooner hehehe 
The sensation in my jaw has almost completely returned~and besides the fact that food gets stuck in my braces, I’m all good!!

I’ve been busy with school, going to the dentist, and it’s already been 5 months.
No one can tell I had surgery, and I think my results are so natural. 
Like the saying goes, ‘no pain, no gain’ ^^ 

I’m so happy with the fact that I no longer need to photoshop my pictures anymore.
I can eat almost anything now (except for really tough to chew foods) 
My swelling is almost all gone too hehe. 

Before my surgery, I could never imagine wearing baseball caps because my face was so long but now I enjoy them. I have really changed a lot I think, don’t you think I resemble Kang Min Kyung a bit? Tehehe

I got a haircut today. I got a short new ‘do, what do you guys think? My friends tell me it really suits me! 
I even hear that I look younger with my new hairstyle ^^.

Although I like taking selfies, I take more pride in pictures that others take of me! 
I feel like it’s more candid and natural hehe

Already 8 months! My results look better day by day, and if I don’t tell anyone no one can guess that I had surgery. 
I remember I was devastated right after surgery because of my puffy and swollen face..but now I realize it was just a stepping stone in my process of becoming beautiful.

I am grateful for my functional improvements in my jaw, but the aesthetic improvements are a nice bonus hehe! 
I think my features are very well defined now. I feel so happy! 

I no longer avoid taking pictures, and am confident in my appearance now. I got surgery to correct my asymmetric face and get my jaw aligned, but getting prettier is just ‘two birds with one stone!’~!!
