Brielle Biermann Shares Shocking Recovery Photos Of Her Double Jaw Surgery:
Don’t Be Tardy alum Brielle Karenna Biermann announced on Monday that she underwent double jaw surgery aka a bi-maxillary osteotomy to correct her ‘TMJ and 9mm overjet overbite.’
‘I sucked my thumb [until] I was 9-ish, which made the roof of my mouth super narrow and my excessive overbite cause my teeth to have no contact whatsoever,’ the 24-year-old influencer – who boasts 1.6M social media followers – explained.
‘Have you ever thought about what it’s like to not be able to bite into pizza? Or [oh my god] trying to bite into an onion on a burger? Impossible for me. I had to use my tongue to help me chew and almost choked every time I ate. That lisp some of y’all complained about? Thank the overbite for that as well.’
Brielle was warned that if she didn’t get braces last November and have surgery she would ‘crack my back four teeth and never be able to eat again by the time I was 27.’
Biermann’s dental procedure was done by ‘incredible’ oral surgeons Amy Kuhmichel and Glenn Maron at Emory University Hospital Midtown in Atlanta back on August 23.
The KAB Cosmetics co-founder has been recovering well thanks to support from her family, private chef Tracey Bloom, and IV treatments at Total Body Therapy of Georgia.
Brielle Biermann Documents Recovery From Double Jaw Surgery, Counts Down ‘3 Months Til Pizza’:
Since Brielle had her teeth wired shut, she’s shed 13lbs due to her liquid diet consisting of Gatorade Zero, soups, smoothies, and blended pasta dinners.
‘Eating [through] a syringe has really sucked. Now I’m on to baby spoons,’ Biermann – who’s having trouble sleeping – admitted.
‘If you have any recipes for food that tastes good blended please let me know! I keep telling Tracey please don’t let me get hungry enough to where you blend a burger.
‘That sounds so gross, LOL, but I did blend mac n cheese and ravioli already and let me tell you, delicious. But never again. I think it was all the pain meds, LOL!’
The Connecticut-born brunette is now ‘counting down the days’ until she can eat pasta and soft foods in four weeks and eventually pizza in three months.
‘I am so thankful I did it,’ Brielle gushed.
‘I got [through] the first two weeks, which are supposed to be the hardest, easy breezy! I already feel more aligned and can breathe way better, especially at night when I would snore and have to breathe [through] my mouth.’
Meanwhile, Biermann’s famous mother Kim Zolciak-Biermann was relieved to admit via Instastory: ‘Why I’ve been a wreck. So proud of my baby. Such a trooper.’
The 43-year-old former nursing student was only 18 when she gave birth to Brielle in 1997 with an undisclosed ex-boyfriend, and her second husband Kroy adopted her in 2013.
Kim and the 35-year-old NFL outside linebacker also have five younger children – daughter Ariana, 19; son Kroy Jr., turning 11 next Sunday; son Kash, 9; and twins Kaia & Kane, 7.
The family was dealt a big blow in May when Bravo canceled their RHOA spin-off Don’t Be Tardy after eight seasons spanning 2012-2020 – according to TMZ.
