Lip Reduction Surgery for ‘oversized’ lips

The world of plastic surgery is highly customised. Each person is looking for the perfect look to create facial harmony or their own ideal body shape. Despite this, however, we still see a lot of trends. People get a procedure that they are thrilled with and they share the good news with their friends. Of course, with social media, word of mouth travels faster than ever before.

Today, surgeons in Sydney and around the world are seeing a surprising new trend: lip reductions. While the trend of getting lip enhancing injections has gotten a lot of attention, there are many men and women who are looking for smaller lips.

Why Lip Reductions Are So Popular

Men and women with big lips are sure to be unsurprised by the trend. In fact, if you are an Asian person between the ages of 20 to 30 years old, you may have heard about this trend before.

There are countless men and women in Asia who have gone under the knife to get thinner lips. Likewise, many people of Asian heritage, as well as other ethnicities around the world are interested in having smaller lips.

According to plastic surgeons in Asia, this is part of a wider trends that is centred around Asian people who are seeking a more “western” look. Many Asian men and women are clamouring for a look more traditionally associated with Caucasians. This includes getting narrower cheekbones, having double eyelid surgery and creating thinner lips.

What to Expect from a Lip Reduction

A lip reduction can be a great option for you, whatever your ethnicity is. This simple and nearly painless operation will leave you with no visible scarring and is an ideal solution for creating facial harmony.

When you go for a lip reduction procedure, you will be given a local or IV anaesthesia. The actual operation typically takes about 30 minutes per lip. During the operation, very small incisions will be made inside of the lip, which will leave no visible scarring outside of your lips after the procedure.

Following the procedure, patients can generally expect a recovery time of about one week, depending on the degree of swelling.

Who Can Get a Lip Reduction?

Like most cosmetic surgeries, any man or woman in good overall health can be a good candidate. This procedure is highly customisable procedure and can transform the way that men and women look and feel about themselves.

Rather than just reducing the size of the lips, a lip reduction surgery can be designed to create facial harmony by reducing lip asymmetry or scarring.
