My under-bite had always caused me anxiety issues and a lot of pain through out my entire teenage and early adult life.
I began treatment under Dr Lee around 2013, and from the moment I met him I knew I was in good hands. He always fully explained any issues he thought there might be, and took the time to listen to any concerns I had or questions, of which I tended to have a few every visit.
When it came time to go in for surgery, I was greeted by Dr Lee and his understudy, they went over everything that would be happening on that day, how long the surgery would be, what I would most likely feel when coming around after surgery, and again another opportunity to ask further questions.
After I awoke from surgery, I was again met Dr Lee's team who wanted to know if any I had concerns or was uncomfortable in any way. I asked to be shown how to use the ice mask, and what would happen next.
Using the ice mask was a fantastic experience; I would highly recommend using it. It helped soothe the pain and aches of post surgery, and from what I understand assisted greatly with a speedy recovery.
I was in hospital for 24 hours before being allowed home, I was provided with all the meal substitutes and painkillers to help with my recovery and was asked to come back to see Dr Lee in 3 weeks time.
I met with Dr Lee one more time after this to get the wiring removed after around 3 weeks of recovery. He remarked that I made a very fast recovery, and I attributed this to the ice mask.
It has now been 4 years since I had my surgery and I am a completely different person. I want to be out in public, I'm not anxious about speaking in public or over the phone, and it has improved my confidence in all aspects of my life.
This would never have happened if it wasn't for my treatment and surgery under Dr Lee and his team.
