It’s been a few weeks since Brielle Biermann gave an update on her life! It turns out, the reality star was undergoing major surgery.
Although she was posting photos after the surgery happened, she only just revealed that they were taken prior to her hospitalizaiton.
She gave fans a lengthy update on her life, and now she’s opening up about dropping pounds!
Turns out, Brielle Biermann was having double jaw surgery at the end of August.
“Sooooo… I had double jaw surgery on august 23 to correct my tmj & 9 mm overjet overbite,” she revealed on Instagram. “This was NOT for aesthetics but for quality of life. 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.”
Brielle then explained that she has had trouble eating throughout her entire life.
“Have you ever thought about what it’s like to not be able to bite into pizza? Or omg trying to bite into an onion on a burger? Impossible for me,” she said.
“I had to use my tongue to help me chew and almost choked every time I ate,” Brielle’s caption continued. “That lisp some of y’all complained about? thank the overbite for that as well.”
She then thanked the team that helped her get through the surgery without any complications.
“I was so scared… I was completely dreading this surgery fearing the worst of the worst but thankfully with my positive mindset, strong family & friends support system, @tbtofga IV’s 🤍 & my incredible doctors (Dr. Kuhmichel & Dr. Maron!!!! BEST OF THE BEST I SWEAR I’m so thankful for them!!!) I got thru the first two weeks, which are supposed to be the hardest, easy breezy”
Brielle added that her breathing is already better.
“I already feel more aligned and can breathe way better, especially at night when I would snore and have to breathe thru my mouth,” Brielle wrote. “I got my braces put on in November (SO NO VENEERS CLEARLY!) and tried my hardest to hide them because honestly, who at 24 years old wants to look like they did in middle school again? Not me!”
Her caption continued:
I was told in august 2020 if I did not get braces and get this surgery I would crack my back 4 teeth and never be able to eat again by the time I was 27 so I really had no option… and man am I so thankful I did it already!! Eating thru a syringe has really sucked now I’m on to baby spoons and soups or smoothies thru a cup but it’s still difficult. If you have any recipes for food that tastes good blended please let me know!!!
Brielle joked that she doesn’t want to get so hungry that she asks for a blended burger, but she did admit she’s already had ground up Mac n cheese and ravioli.
