I Had V-Y Upper Lip Advancement with Some Lip Lengthening, Need to Know How Much Relapse Will Be There?

Relapse of Upper Lip Lengthening
In most cases, one can expect that the relapse of upper lip lengthening is around 50% in my experience. This will occur over the first month after surgery as the swelling subsides and the scar contracture occurs. If a vestibuloplasty was not done with the lip lengthening the amount of rebound lip shortening will likely be greater.
