Lip Reduction

What is the treatment?

Individuals who feel that they have exceptionally large lips can undergo lip reduction surgery. Some people may feel that their large lips are making them feel ugly. A lip reduction surgery may help them to deal with the problem and also aid in recovering their lost self-esteem. Macrocheilia is a condition when a person has lips larger than the normal size. A lip reduction surgery helps to correct this anomaly by making the upper and lower lip harmonious to each other and also balances them with the other features of the face.

Thus lip reduction surgery is not always done for cosmetic purposes. A person suffering from macrocheilia may have impaired oral function and the inadequate seal between the upper and the lower lip may cause drooling and other complications. This condition can affect the speech pattern and functionality and cause a person to lose self-confidence. Macrocheilia can happen due to a number of different reasons. The reasons can be general thickening of the tissues, dentofacial deformities, hemangiomas, glandular hypertrophy and inflammatory or lymphedematous infiltration.

An important factor for a successful lip reduction surgery is the choice of the surgeon who will perform it. A person who wants to undergo this surgery should consult a surgeon who has prior experience of performing such surgeries and also has good credentials.

How is the treatment done?

Cheiloplasty or lip reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that helps to treat unusually big, fat or protruding lips. This is generally achieved by reducing the size of one or both the lips and then creating an artificial angle or tip with the help of a healthy tissue taken from a different part of the body.

Local or general anesthesia is generally used for lip reduction surgery. Sometimes, oral sedation may also be used. The procedure is generally an outpatient procedure and can be performed at a surgeon’s clinic or at the hospital. This procedure is generally completed within an hour or so but it may require more time if other procedures are being performed at the same time.

The treatment involves the making of an horizontal incision on the inside of the lip. Excess fat and tissue is then removed from the lip. This helps to reduce the size of the lip. It can be done on both the upper and lower lip to balance out the features of the face and, hence, to improve the appearance of the patient. Then the surgeon uses stitches to close the incision. This treatment has benefitted people all the world and has helped them get the look they want.
