Braces and Lap-Band

1st picture is on 5/6/11 the day after I got braces and the 2nd picture is 2/9/11 (9 months after I got braces and 8 1/2 months after Lap-Band)

I have had a lot of people find my blog or YouTube videos because they wanted to know about my experience with the lapband and having braces.  Since I've been asked several questions I thought I would make a video about it and share my story.

Overall I wouldn't say it's ideal and definitely makes things a little harder, but I would do it again and I will be so happy when I'm done and have a whole new body and smile!   Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

  4. You look great! I didn't know you got braces right before. Changing it all up at once, though... fantastic idea. :)

  10. Great transformation Andrea, your smile looking beautiful. Invisalign is the new innovation in dentistry to align the teeth in short time. Best part about Invisalign is no one can notice you wearing them as it appear invisible for other people. That is why Invisalign also known as invisible visalign.
