On August 23, Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s eldest daughter Brielle underwent double jaw surgery. The procedure was aimed at correcting Brielle’s overbite and her TMJ, which made it difficult for her to chew. In a September 6 Instagram post, Brielle noted: "This was NOT for aesthetics but for quality of life."

After her surgery, Brielle was instructed to follow a liquid diet. "4 more [till] I can eat pasta and soft foods and 3 months [till] pizza!!!" she wrote in her early September post. "Counting down the days literally." But while she waits for her first cheesy slice, the makeup lover is seeing great progress in her healing.

In an October 4 Instagram story, Brielle shared side-by-side photos of her profile one week before and one week after her surgery. "Looks way better now," she wrote: "Pretty crazy!" In another slide, she wrote: "Jaw surgery is so [life-changing] if you need it."

She added: "Haven’t seen the good parts yet only the part where I’m starving and lost my ass so it kind of sucks [right now] but know it’s only up from here!!" She also spilled her plans for having a missing tooth replaced after she’s healed. "Basically this mouth is very expensive," she wrote.
