Lip Reduction

How is Lip Reduction done?
Lip reduction requires a minor surgical procedure to reduce both the lining and volume of the lip. The reduction can be partial, reducing either the sides or centre of the lip, or total, involving the whole length of the lip. Both upper and lower lips can be reduced.

Will Lip Reduction leave visible scarring?
There are many methods of lip reduction. I use a method which hides the scars on the inside, within the red “wet” part of the lip.

How long does the surgery take?
The surgery usually takes less than an hour.

What is the recovery time?
Lips swell quite easily. Most of our patients return to work within a week. Eating is usually unaffected.
