Lip Reduction

Create a dashing smile with lip reduction surgery

Lip reduction has been a growing trend for both men and women in recent years, proving most popular for people of Asian or African American descent. The procedure involves removing skin from the lips along the vermillion (the pink/red part of the lips) to create a smaller, thinner pout.

 
 

What can I expect?

Lip reduction is an outpatient procedure which takes place under local anesthesia. Expect the procedure to last about 30 minutes, depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. The stitches remain in place for one week, after which they dissolve on their own. Post-procedure pain is tolerable, but patients are advised to eat a soft diet until the swelling resolves, which can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks.
