Let’s face it. Looks matter. You want to look presentable and attractive in the eyes of others around you. This is especially true for kids and teenagers when the odd looking one gets picked on, harassed, and bullied. That’s why Ellie Jones decided to get braces when she was 14. However, that trip to her orthodontist began a sequence that would change her life – and her appearance – forever. You see, she needed more than just braces. Her jaw stopped growing when she was just eight years old, and she needed to undergo surgery to correct it. A few years and a couple of surgeries later, her transformation will shock you.
