Lip Reduction Surgery IN BANGKOK, THAILAND
Lip reduction surgery, also known as reduction cheiloplasty, is a surgical procedure carried out to remove excess tissue from the lips to reduce their volume. The aim of the surgery is to restore facial harmony and balance by reducing the volume of the upper or lower lip, or both lips.
Although it is typically performed for cosmetic reasons, there may be medical indications for surgery including impaired speech or drooling.
You may be a suitable candidate for lip reduction surgery if you have naturally large lips and you’re looking for a permanent solution to improve their appearance or function. We can also perform lip reduction surgery at our clinic in Bangkok, if you are unhappy about the results from a previous lip augmentation.
Lip Reduction 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.
