Lip Reduction
Lips reduction is a procedure performed to reduce the overall size of the lips in people who feel that their lips are simply too large. While it is much more common for us to increase the size of lips with filler products, patients occasionally request this operation. The best candidate is a patient whose lips are proportionately larger than the other structures on their face. The operation can be done under local anesthesia with or without sedation. It involves incisions on the inside of the lips, with removal of excess tissues. These incisions are well hidden inside the mouth so there are no scars visible. The procedure lasts less than one hour and while the lips are swollen for two to four days after surgery, the result is apparent immediately thereafter. The information on this web site is only intended as an introduction to this procedure and should not be used to determine whether you will have the procedure performed nor as a guarantee of the result. The best method of determining your personal options is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Makki. He will be able to answer specific questions related to your situation. Please don't hesitate to call for any questions that you might have
