Plump and full lips are considered to be sexy but then there are limits. If the lips are very broad and large they may appear to be disproportionate when compared to other facial features. In extreme cases, it may also cause difficulty in drinking, eating and speaking. This surgery can reduce the size of the lips permanently. This surgery can be performed alone or along with other procedures like jaw augmentation and rhinoplasty.
Lip reduction procedure
In this surgery local or regional anesthesia is used. In some cases, oral sedation may be used. The procedure can be performed in the surgeon’s clinic or a hospital. Lip reduction takes an hour’s time but it may take longer if other procedures are performed. An incision along the length of the lip is made generally on the inside of the lip. A strip of tissue is removed and then the incision is closed with a suture. It can be performed on lower and upper lip at the same time.
Lip reduction recovery
Immediately after the surgery lips may feel tight. There can be moderate pain for a few days after the surgery. Painkillers are prescribed to keep the pain in check. Swelling and bruising can be expected after the surgery.
As incisions are placed inside the mouth, it may be difficult to eat. Precautions to be taken include:
- Avoid food with acid content
- Eat soft and pureed food
- Rinse with antiseptic mouthwash
Excessive pain or redness can be a sign of infection. The sutures are removed within a week or 10 days following the surgery.
Cost of lip reduction
The fees is inclusive of anesthesia fee, medication, bandages, operating facility fee and surgeon’s charges. Get the charges involved before the surgery. Additional procedures will cost extra. Doubling up of procedures lead to lower cost in long run as anesthesia fee and operating facility fee are paid only once. It is a cosmetic procedure therefore not covered by insurance.

I recently had a Lip Reduction procedure done with Dr. Sumeet, and I am beyond satisfied with how everything has turned out. From our very first appointment, he understood exactly what I was looking for, and he definitely delivered. It has only been a few weeks since my surgery, but so far my nose looks amazing and so natural, which was very important for me. One thing I was pleasantly surprised about was the recovery process; it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sumeet for this procedure, as he and his staff are, without a doubt, superb. Thank you, Dr. Sumeet!
I would like to thank Dr. Sumeet for the amazing work done on my lips. He is blessed with incredible hands that have improved my appearance. I have received countless compliments. His team made the whole process comfortable and very pleasant. When I choose to have another procedure done, I will not hesitate to choose this bhopal medical office.
Dr. Sumeet has been phenomenal from day one. He listened and understood my main concerns and did a great job fixing them. Please make note that I had very specific concerns and wants, after all it was my face he was going to be working on. I had a lip surgery done and the results are just beautiful. Although, my lips are still swollen the difference is unbelievable. I truly recommend him & his raipur clinic staff for a lip reduction if that's what you're looking to have done. In addition to Dr. Sumeet's professionalism, I must say that everyone at the office is great. I have nothing but good things to say about them all.
