I recently got surgical mse w ting, to fix upper airway resistance syndrome and it absolutely fixed it.
(i had a narrow 36ishmm maxilla/paranasal from the extractions then braces i had as a preteen, causing inability to breath thru nose effectively, as well as narrowing and recession)..

but i have expanded 9mm and now my eyes look slightly closer together due to the widening of the zygomas..

Is there anyway to remedy this?

(my zygomas arent very forward projected to begin with, so I have been hardmewing since mse and have gotten some forward maxillary and zygoma growth, but im not sure if this will help the eye distance issue...also i plan to do mma surgery so if anyone has any knowledge of what i could do please lmk)

I highly doubt it’s a big a deal as you think, and you probably in reality look better.

he means they look closer since the bizygomatic width increases more than ipd (right?)

It's all relative. Your eyes didn't get closer together, they just occupy less space since your Zygos are a bit wider now.

No of course, i dont think they got closer only appear closer, which is why i wonder if there is a way to offset this?

Probably not, but don't think about it too much. The fact that you got some decent zygomatic expansion is huge. That's a great base for future MMA surgery. Do your Zygos flare at all now or just got wider?

very slightly flared, but more so just width, i think they will flare more with more anterior growth, as well as hollowing buccals

Lifefuel. I am going to my ortho soon to ask if he endorses MSE. How much expansion did you get?

i think i did a little under 70 turns (i cant remember exactly bc my device started to max out and break, and cause a screw to fall out, but i also think i expanded too quickly 1.75 months ) and so 8.5-9mm

i think it has 90 turns,12cm in total which i guess it also a potential if your doctor says it okay, ting ive heard tries to talk ppl out of going past 60, which he did with me, going so far as to tell mi my 90 turn 12mm mse only had 72 turns total...

My palate is relatively narrow too so I will likely go for 8-9 mm of expansion as well. How long were you turning for? 3 months I presume?

actually only a little over month and half
i did surgical so they expanded 14 turns day of surgery, then 8 turns first week 4 extra turns on day 7 by surgeron during checkup, then one turn for the next 35ish days

Hmm, interesting. I was under the impression that surgical assist didn't lead to any zygomatic expansion.

Yes absolutely! Nose Breathing is wildly better, my turbinates no long become compressed or stuck together... it is entirely worth it for the paranasal expansion

when i nose breathed before, it was usually on thru one nostril and even then air would barely come thru, and now it feel crazy wide in there

Your es ratio has become lower. There are certain hairstyles that will improve the appearance of a low es ratio such as curtains.threads have been made about it here just look them up.

No, I'm asking if you needed implants after mse expansion because of your premolar extractions

There isn't any way to chance that (unless you want to shave your zygomas, which is a bad idea) but it shouldn't detract from your looks too much tbh. If you look more angular and have a wider face, that should offset the looks effect of any eye separation difference.

what do u plan to do for mma? if ur zygomas arent forward projected, you will most likely need smth done there post djs.

ZSO could work for him now with more Zygos width.

mostly likely barely. and im not sure about how much lip width and nose, they did expand but its not very noticeable, most of the nasal expansion was paranasal...i kno some mse doctors measure their patients before and during/after but ting office isnt like that...
