How Old Do I Have to Be to Get a Lip Reduction?

I'm 16 & I hate my lip(s). Well, the upper lip. It's so fat & ugly. I want to be a model but I'm afraid I cannot because of my lip situation.

It is best to wait at least until you are 18 or older and able to legally no longer be a minor. An exam by a qualified plastic surgeon is essential for the best evaluation, decision and surgery if required
