Lip Reduction Surgery

A noticeably plumper and fuller pout is certainly something that women can boast of. But bigger is ‘not’ always better, when it comes to the size of lips. There are lots of people who consider their lips way too bigger than average and it actually makes them look ugly. For them, the lip reduction surgery can be a savior. Here are all that you need to know about it:

 What is Lip Reduction Surgery?

Lip reduction surgery, also medically termed as cheiloplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which the look of unusually big and fat or protruding lips is made better by decreasing the size of one lip or both lips and creating an artificial angle or tip with the help of a piece of healthy tissue taken from an adjacent body part.

How Does It Work?

At first, a small incision is made along the length of the upper lip or both lips (as required). It is usually created on the inner side of the mouth.
Then, a layer of excess skin and tissue is taken out as well as discarded very carefully.
Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.
It takes only 45 minutes to 1 hour to be completed.

Ideal Candidates

To be the best candidate for the lip reduction surgery, you must be in good physical and mental health. You should also not have smoking habit, skin disorder, infection, keloid scar and active cold sore.


1.Your extra large upper lip is reduced to a great extent and you can see the result almost immediately after the surgery.
2.It needs at least 3 months to see the final outcomes of the procedure.

3.The results offered by the surgery are permanent.
4.Your lips will remain swollen and painful for the first few weeks. You may also experience bruising during this period. But all these effects are temporary.
5.There will be some tightness or stiffness in your lips and it will last until the scar gets soft. Your surgeon might suggest you to take certain injections for    accelerating the process.
6.Avoid acidic foods that can aggravate your scar and soreness.
7.Sleep with two pillows at least for the first two weeks. It will keep your head lifted and promote healing.
