Your friends all talk about lip augmentation. They want to make their lips nice and plump. You have the opposite problem. You want your lips to be smaller. You are self-conscious about your mouth. Fortunately, there is a solution. Our plastic surgeon can help you with a lip reduction procedure, helping you to trim your lips down to a size that makes you feel more comfortable about your appearance.
What Happens During the Procedure?
A lip reduction is performed as outpatient procedure. You can plan on it taking up to two hours, although it may only take an hour or so to be completed. Our plastic surgeon can work on both the upper and lower lips or just focus on one. It is completely up to you and what you think will make your mouth more attractive. Our surgeon will remove excess tissue. Fat can be eliminated as well. After the procedure, you will have a new set of lips that is in better proportion to the other features on your face.
What to Expect Following Your Procedure
When you go home, you will deal with some discomfort and swelling. Cold packs are helpful in minimizing swelling and tenderness. Be sure to follow our surgeon’s instructions concerning care for your incisions. You can expect to be home from work one to two weeks. Within ten days, you should feel recovered. It will take up to three months before you can fully appreciate the final results of your lip reduction procedure.
Why Choose Lip Reduction?
This procedure gives you the opportunity to have the mouth you have always wanted. You can stop feeling self-conscious every time you look at a camera or a mirror. Stop avoiding social situations. It’s time to feel good about yourself and who you are. When you put yourself in the hands of your talented and experienced plastic surgeon, you can rest assured that you will walk out with positive results.
