Bie’s operation [Previously on Braces Journey]
This is your pre-surgery jaw. After the operation, your face–
your chin will recede and settle. Guys, it’s my surgery day today. I’m entering the operation room. See you later, everybody. *muah!* And the result… Bie, please don’t blow your nose. Don’t blow your nose. Could you please hand me some cotton buds? If you bleed, like fresh blood, it might be a complication. Bie’s still unconscious!! After the operation, the doctors send Bie to ICU. Bie’s regained consciousness! Bie can’t speak. He has to write to communicate. When I first woke up, my head ached so bad. But it’s getting better now. I drank the whole bottle. Still thirsty!!! Feel good to wake up. Miss you guys. Miss my team. Now I have a wee tube on. My willy hurts a bit. … …. ….. …… My fans, I miss you all. You guys, when I’m done with this operation, we’ll talk for sure. Thank you. ♡♡♡ *smooch* The next day, Bie gets a lot better. Hello. This is my day 2 at the hospital. *whiz* My face is swollen. I can eat a lot but… I have this catheter inserted inside my willy. Approximately this long. Inserted in my willy. They want me to pee automatically. Now I take it off and I feel pain. Pain. Now I’m a lot better but I can’t speak much. My lips are swollen. Tomorrow my lips should get better. My health is good. May I take a look please? [Dr. Ja] There’s… a little. But please don’t blow your nose. Do not blow your nose. Notice that your nose is smaller? Yeah yeah And I breathe easier than usual. Really? That’s great. I don’t know why either. Could you please hand me some cotton buds? Bie, please don’t pick… don’t pick your nose. If you do that, your nose will flare. Just for now. Let me change this bandage for you. Meanwhile, she instructs Bie how to brush his teeth. Please tilt your head downwards a little. – There’s a staff at our clinic whose child likes you a lot.
– Really? – Could you please sign an autograph for her?
– Yeah sure She’s still in her grade 1 or 2. May I? d(^_^)b Okay, thank you. Thank you. The next day The doctor takes off the bandage. Your face is long now. Now it’s still swollen. Be patient. It will settle. Tomorrow we’ll change to a warm compress. Okay And tomorrow you’re probably ready to go home. You should practice smiling. Practice smiling and making a duck face, that’s right. That’s right, good. Most importantly, don’t do heavy exercise yet. But you can do light exercises like
sitting and lifting dumbbells or walking. You can go on with your daily routine
except for doing heavy exercise. And sleep on 2 pillows for now. And sleep with your head straight. Don’t turn right or left just yet. Don’t rest you chin on your hand. Try to eat a lot. Eat as much as you can.
And brush your teeth thoroughly. And if something odd like your face swelling more or bleeding red, fresh blood, know that it’s not an ordinary symptom. So notify us right away. Okay Thank you very much Good bye The next day, Bie leaves the hospital. I’m discharged from the hospital today. And I’m walking to burn fat after
I haven’t worked our for so long. After the walk, he goes back home to have dinner. Food for sick people I’m telling you, I crave for steaks. I can’t understand what you said. I don’t understand. Again please. I’m gonna mash it. (◔︿◔) It’s like some drink mixed with shrimp paste. … …. ….. …… Can’t suck it in. Yummy? Yeah Yummy?? *whining* 4 days later Hello everyone. Today is the 7th day
after the jaw operation with Totsapaet. And today I’ll show you how I exercise my mouth. The doc told me to practice smiling. ◕ ‿ ◕ Smile a lot. I still feel tight. I can stretch to this extent. I’ll try to do the duck face. The reason I do that is because I need to
suck my saliva in or else it will drip. 7 days later 3 days later
appointment with doc A fan ask for a selfie Thank you Today I have an appointment with the doc. To take off my braces. It’s been 10 days. 10 days! – It’s 10 days
– Yeah, 10 days And today the doctor wants to check up and
probably take off the braces so I can speak. But more importantly, I’ll be able to eat with spoon. Until now I have to use tube. Can’t suck it in. It’s Bie’s turn. Your recovery is very fast. Yes Have a seat first. I’ll take off the devices for you. So we can talk better. I’ve been waiting for so long. – 10 days, doc
– 10 days, yes Exactly 10 days I’m telling you, I have problems even with congee. I filmed that too. You must haven’t eaten steamed egg, right? I blended the steamed egg–white egg. Oh okay I was like… worry about you. So I checked on you on Insta. Here we go. So you can talk normally. Your fans must be waiting to hear your voice. When the devices are all removed, don’t be surprised why your teeth still don’t occlude properly. Because in Bie’s case, we performed
the surgery before we put on braces. After the surgery, Bie’s malocclusion
will not be fixed completely yet. He needs to put on braces. How are you feeling? Oh!! – Feel lighter?
– Lighter I haven’t move my mouth for 10 days. Hey, but right now I wanna brush my teeth so badly. I still feel funny when I move my mouth.
I can’t speak normally just yet. Give me some time to adapt. Checking his mouth after the device was removed. Ah! My tongue is white. I can’t open my mouth wide. Little by little You need to try little by little. Woo! My mouth feels comfortable. I want everyone to experience this feeling. It’s the I-can’t-open-my-mouth feeling. I can’t eat. I have to suck. But my teeth aren’t properly aligned yet. We relocated the jaw first. After that, we’re fixing the teeth alignment. Soon you will… be able to speak like usual. And then you need to practice opening your mouth. I’ll teach you how to do that. And one more thing is you need to
practice smiling–natural smiling. At first you smiled unnaturally ’cause
you gnashed on the device. Now you can beam! Your smile looks alright.
I think your smile looks a lot nicer. It’s obvious ’cause you’ve trained hard since the start. You put your effort. Such a lovely patient. Yeah, I tried to practice. If you follow doctors’ instructions,
you’ll recover fast like him. Okay, lay down first. I’ll polish your teeth. Your mouth feels lighter? A lot lighter Woo hoo! Woo!! All removed. The wire removed. The doc will be instructing how to exercise jaw. – Bie, watch me.
– Okay You use your index finger and open your mouth. Watch how I do this. Use your index to push your lower teeth. Use your thumb to push the upper teeth. Just a little And remain in this position. Twist and remain like that.
It will feel tight around your ears. Count 1-20 in your mind. Then rest. And repeat for many sets. – Oh…
– Do this everyday. 50 sets a day is good. Just like when you do weightlifting. Just like this. This is how you exercise jaw
so you can open your mouth. Even now, I feel like I can open my mouth a lot. Before now I could barely. Another thing, I’ll teach you how to pull the rubber band. This is your upper canine tooth. You put it here. From the upper canine to the lower. As simple as that. And the same for the other side The same for both side. Just like that. You have to wear these rubber bands all the time. Except for when you eat and
when you exercise your mouth. You take them off. – That’s it.
– Wow Easy, right? Okay, all done. I’ll make an appointment
with you after one month to do CT scan. To follow up. Now you have to see the orthodontist. Yes, thank you very much. My pleasure. Thank you. Do you think you can film now? Yeah, I can. But I gotta practice speaking. I can. I can speak now. I can speak
so I can talk to our fans. So I can film today. I’ve been happy for the past 10 days. You can do anything. There’s no don’ts. You can eat anything
as long as you think you can chew it. I think you’ll learn by yourself which food
you can eat and which one you can’t. Yes Thank you again. Thank you Today I took off the… wire. And I can speak now. Tomorrow is the first working day
after New Year holiday. I’ll meet my crew. None of my crew has seen my face after the surgery. Except for Teh, our cameraman. I’ll wear a mask and take it off later. See how everybody’s gonna think. I haven’t cut my hair. – Cut?
– Cut my hair. Like a TV show. Dressed dapper after the surgery.
Meet people and… take the mask off. And everyone will be like… Good idea? Okay, so tomorrow we’ll see the crew. The next day at the studio Everybody, I’ve disguised myself. Oh ho… who are you? I thought you were Razor. Razor! Now, nobody has seen my face. Today is the first day. Everyone will meet me now. Let’s see their reactions. Bie’s here, guys! Where’re you from? Who are you? Hey! He still look like himself. This area sure looks like Bie. No changes Don’t tell me you have Bell’s palsy. – Bie…
– Look at all these crowd. You’d better turn back first. Turn back first.
Guys, come here. Let Bie take the mask off and turn around. Oh… PM 2.5 mask, reveal yourself… now!!! Turn around, turn around! Your face is more pointy! Your face is so small! Your fat here is gone. You smile like you’re about to cry. He still has to force it. Like the doctor said, after the surgery, some take months to recover or for the face to stop being swollen. But Bie recovers fast. Only a couple of weeks Yeah, it’s been 2 years. 10 days. 10 days before I took off the wire. Who does he look like? Huh? He looks like me. Right now when Bie smiles or laughs,
his eyes become squinty. My… my face is still swollen. Try make an angry face Happy face He can’t frown now. No need to worry now. We can’t tell if Bie’s angry or not. Wait till everything is settled. He’ll then be back to normal. Next, I’m moving on to wear Invisalign. The mold has already been made.
I’ll consult the doctors later. Let’s see how it goes. Okay, everybody is surprised. See you! If you have any questions about braces or jaw surgery, leave a comment down below and I’ll answer in the next episode.
