Some people are self-conscious about having a large upper lip, a large lower lip or both. The only way to reduce the size of your lips is via surgery. Lip reduction can be achieved by removing part of the lip from inside the mouth or, in some cases, removing skin from above the lip line.
We make an incision under anaesthetic, then skilfully remove the right amount of skin to create a neater, smaller lip.
This is a permanent procedure for those whose lips are out of proportion with the other features on their face, or for those who simply don’t like the fullness of their lips.
The mouth area has a rich blood supply, so you will get a fair amount of swelling and bruising. You might want to take time off work while your mouth heals, and it’s really important to keep up excellent oral hygiene while you recover, to avoid infection.
