How The Procedure Works
A Lip Advancement for Men procedure can be performed with local anesthesia and relaxation. The “red” lip is advanced and sutured in the new position, usually with dissolvable sutures.
Recovery is relatively quick, with swelling resolving in 1-2 weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for the first week after surgery. With ongoing healing, results continue to improve.
After surgery, lips should be fuller with improved facial balance.
