Lower & Upper Lip Reduction Procedure
A lip reduction procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with relaxation on an outpatient basis. Incisions are tailored to the type of reduction desired. Dissovable sutures are often used. The procedure may be performed on the upper or lower lips or both, depending upon the outcome desired.
Some swelling and discomfort may occur after surgery. These can be controlled with ice bags and with pain medications. Typically, you can return to work about a week after the procedure and feel comfortable with your appearance. Healing continues over several months, at which time you will see the best results from the procedure.
After the procedure, your lips will be smaller and more balanced in proportion to the rest of your face. This can build confidence and make you feel more comfortable about your appearance.
