Dr. Choi expertly makes an incision inside the mouth by utilizing micro-surgical instruments that can hold suture threads precisely and make it easier to perform delicate suturing in such a narrow and delicate area. After surgery, scars from the incision are tiny and hidden. General instruments are large, limiting movement within a narrow space, making it difficult to work precisely. However, micro-surgical instruments are smaller, allowing for finer and more detailed work. By using instruments used in microscopic surgery, Dr. Choi reduces errors of even 1 mm during surgery.

It will certainly be difficult to chew food immediately after surgery. Hence, we provide you with soft liquid foods such as pumpkin porridge and juice to avoid straining your mouth and to let you recover faster. It will likely take you 3 to 5 days to return to your daily activities. Until then, it is highly advisable to avoid strenuous activities. Crunchy food is also prohibited since it can lodge in the stitches and cause infection.
