SURGERY

Lip reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in less than an hour, requiring only local or regional anesthesia in most cases.

The surgery involves making a horizontal incision along the length of your lips inside your mouth and removing unwanted tissue from either one or both of the lips to reduce their volume. Because the incision is hidden inside the mouth, scarring will be practically unnoticeable.

Lip reduction surgery is a very safe and simple procedure that requires little time for recovery. Typically, patients can resume their normal activities within a few days.
