What is lip reduction?
Lip reduction or cheiloplasty is a surgery aimed to decrease the lip size, remove the non-absorbable gel or malformation, and just improve the lips contour making them attractive and natural. The operation is minimally invasive and does not require a long rehab period.
What are the indications for the surgery?
The lip reduction procedure is the best improvement option for people who
- want to get a more proportionate lip size relative to facial features
- previously have lip augmentation with non-absorbable gels
- need restoration of lip proportions after injuries or burns
- got unsatisfactory results of lip augmentation (too large size, asymmetry, tubercles).
What is the lip reduction process ?
Lip reduction is performed under local anesthesia and takes 20-40 minutes. There is no need for a long stay in the hospital — you can leave the clinic in 2 hours after the operation.
A plastic surgeon cuts down a section of the mucous membrane of the lips (from one corner of the mouth to the other) — tissue on the inner surface of the lips. A thin scar remains but it is invisible as hidden inside the mouth.
The operation is not complicated but requires great accuracy and accuracy. To get the desired result, the surgeon has to mark precisely the area that should be removed.
What are the contraindications for lip reduction?
Before making a decision on surgery, you need to consult a doctor and pass all the necessary lab tests. Lip reduction is contraindicated for people who have
- cardiovascular diseases
- blood clotting.
What rules should I follow during postoperative rehabilitation?
In the first 5-7 days after the operation, doctors recommend resisting facial gestures, eliminating hot and rough foods, and physical activity. For faster healing, specialists prescribe mouthwashes with antiseptics and treat the sutures with special solutions.
What are the possible side effects after lip reduction ?
Lips are very sensitive parts of your face so a person may face some side effects after their reduction. The most common among them are:
- allergic reaction.
Most patients have some of these side effects. However, they disappear in a few days after the surgery. To minimize the risk of side effects, you should choose a highly-skilled specialist with vast experience in performing lip reduction surgeries.
