All facial features should be balanced to create an attractive appearance. Lips that are too large can cause imbalance and may make individuals feel self-conscious of their appearance. Lip reduction surgery reshapes the lips to a more attractive size to match the other facial features. Dr. Steven Rueda at Precision Medical Specialists offers lip reduction surgery to achieve facial balance at our medical center in Wellington, FL.
Lip size is usually genetic, something that is determined before you are born. Many people are unhappy with the size of their lips, either they are too thin or too thick, but both can be remedied through cosmetic procedures. Adding volume can be done with injections, but lip reduction requires plastic surgery. The good news is that most lip reductions can be performed through a small incision inside the lip, so there are no visible scars after the procedure. The surgery can be completed in as little as an hour, and patients can go home shortly afterward with limited recovery required.
Resizing Larger Lips
Lip reduction surgery is not as simple as removing tissue. It is important to remove the tissue evenly and in the right amount to create the desired appearance. Dr. Steven Rueda has years of experience creating beautiful cosmetic transformations through plastic surgery. He has performed thousands of procedures using advanced techniques to provide natural, balanced results for his patients. During lip reduction surgery, he will carefully extract fatty tissue from under the skin in one or both lips to create the desired size and shape. Lip resizing surgery can usually be performed using only local anesthesia, but if other procedures are being done at the same time, other sedation may be required.
Lip reduction or resizing surgery can help achieve facial balance and improve self-confidence in your appearance. If you are unhappy with the look of your lips due to their larger size, plastic surgery may be right for you.
