About Lip Reduction
Pronounced lips can overshadow an otherwise beautiful face and even cause some difficulties with speech. Through lip reduction, larger lips can be resized to a more proportionate size for the person's face. A lip reduction can effectively reduce the size of either the bottom, top or both lips.
This state-of-the-art outpatient procedure that embraces both form and function.
The Lip Reduction Advantage
Lip Reduction surgery is a safe, common procedure that has been around since long. Lip reduction surgery improves daily functions such as; eating, talking, dental hygiene, and more.
Improved confidence and self-esteem is also a consequence from the reduction of overly large, protruding lips. Possessing lips that are in sync with the rest of your facial traits creates a satisfying harmony and facial balance.
This procedure is also called cheiloplasty.
Lip Reduction Procedure
The surgery will take about an hour. To avoid scarring, the incisions are made on the inside of the lips. Excess tissue and fat is removed and the incision is closed using dissolvable sutures. The surgery can be performed on both lips or only on the lip causing the imbalance; usually the lower lip.
The incisions made are precisely calculated to not only reduce lip volume, but to create a beautiful lip line. This may result in incisions that are called “bikini incisions” due to the technique used. The incision in the top lip is in the form of two circles joined by a center band, resembling a bikini top. The lower incision is in the shape of a V, resembling a bikini bottom. This technique provides more precise contouring and lip line creation.
The procedure will take between 15 and 30 minutes to be completed, using a light sleep anesthetic.
