Perfection has no limits, this is especially true when it comes to facial appearance.

One of the most chosen cosmetology services, which provides a quick and incredibly effective result of transforming the appearance, is lip reduction surgery - a method of improving the shape of the lips, correcting congenital and acquired lip deformities and age-related changes with the help of modern plastic surgery.

What is Lip Reduction Surgery?

Modern lip thinning surgery is among the most popular methods of correcting the upper and lower lips to achieve a balanced relationship.If there are significant defects, then reconstructive lip reduction surgery is performed. The end goal is to enhance facial appearance by modifying the lips while maintaining their general function.

How Does Lip Reduction Surgery Work?

In most cases, lip reduction surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. The doctor forms markings on the skin and creates a new lip design with the help of a small incision. Reducing the lip size requires eliminating deformed tissues.During the reconstructive intervention, one's tissues can be inserted - flaps, fat, etc. The wound is stitched using cosmetic sutures, which is generally removed on the 6-7th day. After the procedure, an ice pack is applied to the operated area for the first few hours, which helps prevent large oedema. Most of the time, incisions are made through the mucous membrane of the mouth, so they remain invisible after the surgery.

Indications for the Surgical Lip Correction
