Lip reduction


Dear gobirun,

  • A plastic or facial plastic surgeon can handle lip reductions
  • Your goals can be discussed at your consultation so you get the result you are looking for

Lower Lip Reduction


A lower lip reduction can be successfully performed.  However, the proportion of your upper and lower lips need to be kept balanced so that your lips and face still appear natural.  Please consult with a board certified specialist who can best assist you with this.
