Starting underbite surgery at 18 and how long do I wear braces

Hi, this is Woojae Kim from the last message I sent you guys about the underbite surgery business, and I also have another question in the details of underbite surgery. From the last online consultation, your staff has made a statement that the minimum age to start doing the underbite surgery is at 19 years old. But is it possible to start doing the underbite surgery at 18 years old? I am seventeen years old right now, but at the end of May, I will turn 18 years old. And I am thinking about doing the underbite surgery right after I graduate high school and during the summer. And if I start the surgery too early, will my teeth relapse back into ugly forms even after the surgery is done? Also, after surgery, how long do I have to wear braces for my teeth to stay very straight?

    Thank you for contacting ID Hospital.

    The minimum age limit is 19 years old for the surgery and you have to present a bone density test first to show that all the bones have matured in order to undergo surgery.

    You can however do a bone density test when you turn 18 and if the bone density test results show that your bones have finished growing, then we may consider you for surgery with your parent's approval.
    We cannot perform surgery if your bones have not finished growing and are still developing.

    The braces are decided by the dentist after surgery, so we cannot tell you how long you will have to wear them fro, it could be as little as 6 months for as long as 2 years.

    For further queries, please contact us through email, doctor@idhospital.com
