A surgical lip reduction appears to be the only option. It can be done under local anesthesia with or without sedation. The scar should be undetectible.

Thank you for your question and photo. Yes, you can have a lip reduction and shall give you great results. This will leave you with a scar but it will not be noticeable as it will be on the inside of the mouth. I recommend having a consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine the best treatment plan for you. Best of Luck!

Dear jjpocock121,

  • Yes a lip reduction can be done with great results
  • The scar would be undetectable because it would be on the inside of the mouth
