If you think your lips are too large for your face, lip reduction is a simple and commonly performed surgery that can help. You want your facial features to be balanced in order to have a pleasing appearance. Your lips are a primary feature that set off the rest of your face. If your lips are out of proportion your face looks unbalanced. Your bottom lip should protrude more than your upper lip, and your upper lip should be thinner than your bottom lip.
Lip-reduction is a state-of-the-art outpatient procedure that:
Reduces overly large, protruding lips, bringing them to a more pleasing size.
Helps to put your lips in balance with the rest of your face.
Is safe, effective and provides permanent results.
During and After
Lip Reduction surgery at Midas Touch is a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia in our clinic. It takes about 1-2 hours to complete. A small section of tissue is removed from the inside of the lip and then closed with sutures.
Be prepared that your lips will appear too large for a few weeks after the procedure until all swelling has dissipated. Downtime is minimal. Most of our patients take a few days off before going back to their daily lives. You will need to eat a soft diet for 2-3 days and use ice on your lips for the first 24-48 hours to help reduce swelling.
