It is a well-known fact that many men and women across the globe undergo lip augmentation surgery for increasing the size of their lower and/or upper lips. However, there is yet another segment of the people that feel their lip size is too large and thus not in proportion with the remaining facial features. People who have an excessive large size of lips might feel self-conscious about their appearance. Lip reduction surgery is the most effective procedure for reducing the size of the lips. The surgery aims at bringing down the size of the lips so that they are in harmony with remaining features of the face.
Who is the right candidate for lip reduction?
People who have naturally large sized lips are good candidates for lip reduction surgery in Delhi. In addition, it can also be performed on individuals who are unhappy with the results of a lip augmentation procedure done previously. Also, one should be in good health, have realistic expectations, quit smoking at least a month or two before and after the surgery and have a positive attitude.
Lip reduction surgery
It is performed under local anesthesia and a patient is not required to stay at the hospital. It is performed as an outpatient procedure. However, it might be performed under sedation or general anesthesia if a patient is undergoing multiple procedures or if a person feels more comfortable being unconscious during the procedure. During the treatment, the Plastic Surgeon creates a horizontal incision on the inner side of the lip. Then excess deposits of tissue and fat are removed and the incision is closed with the stitches. It can be performed on both upper or lower lipsfor improving the appearance and balancing out features of the face.
Although people who undergo this surgery do experience minor discomfort when compared to more invasive procedures such as eyelid surgery or facelift, they also vanish within a few weeks’ time. Make sure that you follow the instructions given by the surgeon for timely and quick healing. Apply medication and ice bags to the lips for minimizing swelling and pain. In some cases, soluble sutures are used which means stitches do not have to be removed later.
