Exclusive Q&A with Erica: I Had Jaw Surgery

Erica from Season 8 of BGC in Las Vegas is the latest Bad Girl to go under the knife. "The Red-Headed Hustler" (who no longer has red hair) underwent double jaw surgery to correct her extreme underbite--and to make herself pretty. Check out our exclusive Q&A and photos of Erica post-surgery below!

What made you want to get the surgery?  

I got the surgery because I had terrible breathing and chewing problems--my jaw would lock up and I would get these awful pinched nerve pains and migraine headaches. When my doctor explained how all of those symptoms were connected to my TMJ [temporomandibular joint, or jaw] problems, I just knew that I had to have this procedure no matter what. I also wanted to feel better about myself inside and out. I was teased a lot about my underbite; and because of it, I never really felt pretty. I saved for years and years just to pay for this procedure.

Are you happy with the results? 

Yes! I am very happy with the results. I look 10 years younger and I finally have a full top lip and I am much more confident. I've never felt prettier which is definitely a feeling I'm not used to. My whole face has changed--I look completely different and I feel like a new person!
