The quest to be happy?

I was telling my friend about the written report. At the end, after explaining all the little details and changes I shall go through, she said it was sad that I had to go through all this work simply to be 'happy'. This got me thinking: is this all a desire to be happy?

I assume the majority of people who read these blogs are others who are going through orthodontics (possibly not even needing surgery, or indeed needing surgical work) and, from my personal experience, you read them to get that feeling there are others who have a fixable problem with their jawline.

I admit, I hate how I look and my biggest regret is not getting involved now as much as I could owing to the underbite.

Any of you fellow bloggers, views? Do we go through this process to simply be 'happy'?

On a happier note, I'm getting my quad helix fitted 17th May :-D



  1. I guess you do, little things like your appearance can effect you so psychologically which impacts your confidence! Although you're not necessary unhappy, I think you can always say things can be improved! After all, why not look or function the best that you can! I underwent double jaw and chin surgery last month and the results have improved my confidence massively already! :)

  2. I agree with Emma. I am six weeks post surgery for an overbite and I can honestly say I've never been happier. Maybe it is sad that I had to go through all that to get here but I'm here, it was worth this feeling of confidence, achievement and happiness and I would do it all over again without hesitation. Best of Luck :)
