Brielle Biermann reveals she's 'finally getting back to work' after having double jaw surgery & sharing recovery pics
BRIELLE Biermann has revealed she is getting back to normality after the star underwent double jaw surgery.
The 24-year-old openly documented the journey of her recovery on her social media platforms and now she says she is "finally getting back to work" after a grueling few weeks of healing.
Taking to her official Instagram account, she shared the update on her Story for her 1.3million followers to see.
She shared the update written over a video of her in the back of a car smiling while wearing make-up with her hair down.
Grinning for the camera to show off her healed surgery, Brielle wrote over the clip: "Splint it out," followed by an emoji sticking its tongue out.
"Finally getting back to work," she finished off the post with a white heart.
The star zoomed in on and around her jaw to show it off without the splint.
Brielle previously revealed she had the surgery to correct her overbite as it made eating difficult for her.
She said the overbite occurred because she sucked her thumb up until the age of nine.
Brielle, who is the daughter of RHOA's Kim Zolciak-Biermann, shared several hospital photos of her recovery.
In the photos, the bottom of her face and her cheeks were completely swollen and bruised.
The Instagram influencer penned in the caption why she got the surgery and that it was not for "aesthetics" but for quality of life.
In her caption, the influencer wrote: "sooooo… i had double jaw surgery on august 23 to correct my tmj & 9 mm overjet overbite. this was NOT for aesthetics but for quality of life."
TMJ is Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, which causes jaw pain and restricted movement of the jaw.
"I sucked my thumb til i was 9 ishhh which made the roof of my mouth suuuuuper narrow and my excessive overbite cause my teeth to have no contact whatsoever." she added.
Brielle admitted that her overbite stopped her from being able to bite into pizza and she would "almost choke" every time she ate.
