Don't you have a before pic with the same angle to compare ?

ehh not really any good ones from the front unfortunately. I don't mind posting it, but I already know everyone will cry about how the lighting/quality is different. I only took decent side profile pics in the beginning, which I have posted previously. I know people hate anecdotal evidence, but I definitely had ZERO cheekbones before w/ no hollow cheeks. I just enjoy sharing my journey, and hopefully it will motivate others.

That's unfortunate. 

On this pic you seem good looking from this front angle, you indeed have decent cheekbones which give a "hunter" look. 

 

Btw, your main thread about your progress is really motivating. Keep going !

Oo, nice. I for one promise not to [Rude Language or Insults are not tolerated] about imperfect 'before' pics if you choose to post an informal snap for comparison. But congratulations, and good work!

Anecdotal evidence is still great for motivation.  Thanks for sharing!

This was last June. The lighting is different and head position is slightly more downward, but not by much. Note how much longer the chin is, as well as the overall facial width being more narrow. Larger dark circles and more prominent nasolabial folds are also evident. 

From what I have observed, the forward projection of the maxilla started from the farthest reaches of my outer U, and has slowly crept closer to the center of my face. I am quite literally squeezing and separating my midface out from the lower jaw, carrying the mandible with it.

This is really great motivation! Have you noticed improved vision at all?

Maybe marginally. Nothing to write home about.

Hi ! 

Are you sure you're not clenching your teeth making your masseters look more prominent ? And trying to simulate hollow cheeks?

Really, the biggest thing is Consistency. Another big thing is to chin tuck even when you are in public and even when you look stupid with three double chins. I stopped caring about looking goofy a long time ago lol. If you have asymmetries in the face, look in a mirror and notice how the underlying bite effects the bone structure and the skin. This may help you realize parts of your palate where your tongue is slackin'.

I can assure you I am not clenching. I can only speak in reference to my own facial structure, but flexing the massesters doesn't hardly increase the width of my face or hollowness of the cheeks. IMO the only way to get shadowing like that is the maxilla creating disparity between itself and the mandible.

Are you using the selfie camera in the before pic or the main camera?
