Sharing several hospital photos of her recovery, Brielle could be seen with tubes around her face as well as ice packs.

The daughter of RHOA alum Kim Zolciak-Biermann showed off the bruising and swelling around her cheeks.

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” everytime she ate.

“i was so scared… i was completely dreading this surgery fearing the worst of the worst,” she continued.

Brielle thanked her friends and family as well as the team of doctors who helped her get “thru the first two weeks, which are supposed to be the hardest.”


Last month, Brielle hit back at haters as she posted a natural selfie.

She appeared without a weave, fillers and fake nails as she blasted the trolls and told them to “go f**k yourself.”

Brielle shared a photo on Instagram stories, showing her natural appearance, captioned: “Took my weave out… No lip injections and no [acrylic] nails lol who am I?”

Brielle went on to write: “All my friends (except Dani) have fake nails, fake hair, fake etc. Who cares? It’s our lives. It doesn’t affect y’all AT ALL!

“But kindly … go f**k yourselves (haters) because I haven’t even touched my face besides a lil Botox for TMJ and lip fillers … WHICH ARE ALL GONE NOW!”


She added: “When is the stigma of putting people down for bettering themselves gonna end? If you could … Would you not?”

In May, Brielle shot down claims she’s had plastic surgery after fans accused her of looking “different”.

The Don’t Be Tardy star denied she’d gone under the knife during a chat with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

She spoke about growing up in the public eye after her mom Kim, 42, found fame on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.

She explained she’s often accused of having nips and tucks, but said her looks have changed because she has “grown-up.”


“I hope I look f***ng different!” she snapped.

She added: “(People) think that you have a lot of plastic surgery growing up on TV.

“They don’t realize that you look different from ten years old to 24. I hope I look f*****g different.”
