Lip Augmentation/Lip Reduction is a procedure that helps achieve facial balance and harmony, and can be the solution for cosmetic or medical needs. This procedure may be permanent and can be performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty or facelift.
Lip procedures can provide the following benefits:
Enhance or reduce size to satisfy aesthetic desires
Revise previously botched lip augmentations that have too much silicone
Reconstruction for people born with congenital defects like cleft palates
Reconstruction for accident or burn injury cases, where lips healed with excess scar tissue
No one could tell I had it done. His main concern is to make his patients very happy, and I’m soooooo happy with my nose and lips!

Lip procedures can take about 1-2 hours and are generally performed under local anesthesia. For a lip reduction, an incision is typically made inside the lip and a small section is removed. The incision is then closed with sutures.
You should be an adult in good general health, preferably a non-smoker. Patients undergoing this procedure should have realistic expectations for the results after surgery and be ready to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow the medical team’s instructions for recovery and beyond.
