    TMJ-Fat Graft Surgery

    Has anyone had this surgery and can tell me the pros and cons? I'm looking at either a Total Joint Replacement (TJR) or a Disectomy with fat graft. I had a previous orthognathic surgery (le fort I osteotomy) and I rejected the plates and the pain has gotten out of control. I'm nervous about a failed TJR because then I won't have any joint left to work with but also fearful of the fat graft failing. Does anyone have any feedback or know anyone who had surgery and failed or had a failed TJR? Thank you!

    I had this surgery in 2013 on my left jaw. It's been a total success. I have absolutely no issues with that side of my jaw joint. That being said, the recovery was brutal. The pain was incredible. But I got through it and after 7 years still awesome.

    I'm now facing the possibility of having it on my right jaw. Seeing the same surgeon on Wednesday. I also have ankylosing spondylitis which contributes to my issues.

    Good luck with your decision if you haven't already made one.
