Dr. Cho performed a lesion excision near a previous scar under my chin and I was so happy with the result I couldn't stop staring at it.

Hi Sallify, checking in on your eye surgery and things are looking better than I expected for post op pics. Thanks for posting the doctor's recommendations to reduce swelling and bruising, never knew about wheat and inflammation. It's... READ COMMENT

Thanks for sharing and what an amazing job your second surgeon did! The photos, xray and drawings are extremely educational for anyone looking for genioplasty and the cost and payment process outstanding. It's true the rest of your... READ COMMENT

Your cheek bones look great now. My surgeon told me bruising is from hitting a blood vessel. I think my skin is thinner than yours but even the best injector can encounter the unexpected along the way. The good thing is bruising goes... READ COMMENT
