Lip reduction surgery is performed in the cosmetic surgery centre under local anaesthesia.


The incision is made on the inside of the lips. The incisions allow excision of excess fat and tissues and then the incisions are closed using dissolvable suture.

The incisions are not limited to reducing lip volume, but it also creates a beautiful lip line.

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.
