About Lip Reduction

If you’re feeling self-conscious about your large lips, let SMG give you a confidence boost through lip reduction surgery.

While some people long for large, luscious lips, others are less comfortable with their full pout. By undergoing lip reduction surgery, you’ll be able to change your lip-size and therefore feel more comfortable with your appearance. It is important that you have a clear idea of how you would like to look and, at the same time, realise there are limitations to the results which can be achieved from the lip reduction procedure.

We’ll ensure that you receive the best possible advice on lip reduction surgery from our qualified surgeons and nursing staff. What’s more, after your procedure is complete, we aim to provide you with the best possible aftercare — so you’ll know whether your lip reduction surgery is healing as expected.

To get the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of, arrange a FREE, no obligation consultation on lip reduction surgery today or order a free brochure to find out more.

Procedure

SMG’s goal is to make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible. Lip reduction surgery can be performed under local and/or general anaesthetic. The procedure takes about one hour and takes about two weeks to heal.

Lip reduction is performed by making an incision in the length of your lip inside your mouth and then removing a strip of skin from one or both lips, depending upon the look you want to achieve. Your Surgeon will aim to enhance the mouth and lips area to complement your facial features, giving you a softened, natural mouth.

The Recovery Period

Take it easy and sleep on two pillows to keep your head elevated for around 7–14 days — or however long your surgeon suggests. Remember that swelling and bruising is perfectly normal after surgery, but this will clear up after a few weeks. You should expect to see the final results from the lip reduction surgery in about three months. Because of the swelling your lips may look larger after the procedure than before, but they will settle in time.

Give yourself a week after the completion of your lip reduction surgery before returning to your normal routine. It’s also advisable to refrain from participating in contact sports for at least six to eight weeks.

You can expect the very best aftercare from SMG once your lip reduction surgery is complete. We’ll organise regular check-ups with your surgeon or our nursing staff so we can be sure that your lip reduction surgery procedure is progressing as planned.

Considerations

Fortunately, significant complications from lip reduction surgery are infrequent. Every year, many people undergo successful lip reduction surgery, experience no problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
