"Lip Lift/corner Lift/lip Reduction - Hello, I have been roaming these reviews and thought it was time to share my experience. On 09/09, I had a lip lift with corner lift and lip reduction. I know it’s an odd combination, but I had a fairly short philtrum to begin with, and my goal was to have more teeth show. I will be three weeks post and here are my thoughts/highlights so far:Day 1-5 : Oh my god, the swelling. After surgery, my face just looked...distorted. The swelling was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before (remember, I had a reduction too). The pain wasn’t too bad post surgery, with the pain peaking maybe 6 hours post. I took one pill for pain and that was all I needed.Day 5: On day 5, I had my stitches removed. Day 7: By day 7, my swelling was reduced and not really as offensive. I felt almost presentable. Current status: I am definitely still tight at the nose, corners, and at the wet/dry border. I cannot smile fully which is frustrating. Most of my swelling appears to be gone but my lip is pretty hard and lumpy at the reduction incision. My scars are still there but definitely hard to see if you’re not looking. I’m about to see a friend I’ve know for years; the real test will be to see if he’ll notice. Highlights:1. You will swell. I took pictures almost daily at the start but I’m not sure that’s a good idea. At the very least, I would not obsess over how it looks initially as it will surely change and evolve over time. 2. The scars will have good days and bad days. Per my doctor’s recommendation, I started to use a silicone ointment as soon as my stitches were removed. I think it’s very important to intervene early on and to remember your scar will evolve over a year plus. Right after my stitch removal, my scar looked perfect. Currently however, it’s gotten bumpy. This is completely normal for it to change. So I guess my advice is, even if your scar looks great initially, be sure to manage your scar for an extended period of time as your scar will continue to remodel for 12 months+. Smiling: Not being able to laugh or smile is the real bummer for me. When my hilarious friend tells me a joke, I want to laugh untrammeled. I am not trying to equate what I feel at all close to depression, but it almost seems like the inability to express has muted my emotions. If you are a smiley, laughy person, expect to feel a bit “unsettled.” Laughing and smiling constitutes a huge part of my personality, and right now, I can’t be fully me. I’m voting “not sure” as it’s still early. However my doctor is FANTASTIC. I think he did everything right for me to have a fantastic experience, now let’s see how my body responds."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 29, 2020
What is Ab Sculpting?
Dr. Cho is also pleased to offer ab sculpting, which uses a refined liposuction technique to enhance the definition of abdominal muscles. Dr. Cho normally uses liposculpture methods to liquefy and remove fat but might also use power-assisted liposuction to get a more defined result. To be a good candidate for ab sculpting, you should maintain a healthy, stable weight but have isolated pockets of fat in your stomach that don't respond to diet and exercise.
Who is a Candidate for body contouring?
You may be a good candidate for body contouring if you have loose folds of skin, lost volume, or minor pockets of fat. Common areas of treatment include the chest, buttocks, abdomen, arms, back, and thighs. It's important to note that body contouring is not a weight loss solution. Men who are considering this procedure should already be at or near their goal weight.
How is body contouring performed?
During your initial visit, Dr. Cho will develop a body contouring treatment plan that is unique to your needs. This might include both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, like abdominoplasty, thighplasty, arm lifts, liposuction, and breast lifts usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create small incisions that can later be hidden by undergarments and to remove loose skin and small pockets of fat, revealing a smoother, thinner body. Nonsurgical treatments can be completed at Chiseled without sedation. These treatments include injectable fillers, FaceTite, BodyTite, CoolSculpting, and laser skin tightening.
What can I expect after body contouring?
If you're having a surgical procedure, you'll be sent home to rest and recover following your treatment. Nonsurgical procedures typically do not have any downtime. Occasionally, patients undergo many procedures at once on multiple body parts, which often requires an overnight stay in the hospital. Body contouring can help sculpt your body, so whether you've chosen nonsurgical or surgical treatments — or both — you can expect a slimmer, sexier silhouette.

What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho will outline your unique treatment plan. We may schedule procedures in stages based on your overall health and the number of areas needing treatment. Typically, we'll group the stages by combining either the upper body parts (stomach, chest, arms, face, neck) or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, knees, hips). This staging helps to lower the risk of complications, such as infection and blood loss. It also makes your recovery easier to manage.
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
Since incisions are required with surgical body contouring procedures, you will have scarring. However, Dr. Cho is an experienced plastic surgeon who makes every effort to reduce the appearance of scars by making the incisions in less visible areas, like the natural skin creases or folds of the body. Scar care management after surgery is important. Dr. Cho may prescribe skin ointments to speed the healing process. Over time, the scars will fade and blend in easier with your natural skin tone.
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, your body contouring results can last for a long time. The best way to maintain your results is to maintain a healthy weight. Significant changes in your weight or pregnancy after your body contouring surgery can affect your results. Natural aging will continue, so you'll eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Talk to Dr. Cho about tips that can help your results last longer.
