Eli Jones was subjected to a complicated operation as she wanted to stop feeling ugly for her jaw. This 20-year-old girl had a malformation of the jaw bone, which also affected the appearance of her teeth, but it also brought her many health problems caused by an irregular bite.
When she was 14 years old, the doctor found that her jaw had not developed since the age of eight. Finally, a team of maxillofacial surgeons from Wales was formed, who decided to help her to change her life forever.
When she was eight, her jaw stopped to develop, and she was going through a very hard period in her life.
“I had to eat liquid food for two months, which was very difficult. Also, it was hard for me to speak, so I used a paper and a pen. After a while, I could say a few words, and my mouth was very swollen, “said Eli Jones for The Welsh Daily Post.
Now, after 6 months, her face is perfect! Her jaw looks very nice now, and she even had an intervention on the chin, which was too small before the intervention.
“I felt relief. I could finally be myself, “said Eli.” I was shy, but now I have a lot of confidence. My life has changed completely!”
Nowadays, she wants to be engaged in photography, and her mother supports it completely.
Emma Woolley, a surgeon who was working on Eli’s case, says that many people are not even aware of the fact that they have deformed jaws.
“Many people do not realize they have a deformed jaw and they just get used to the wrong bite. If this problem is not treated in childhood, it is much more difficult to solve it later.”
