Can a surgeon reduce the size of my lips?

I have lips like a blowfish and I'd like to have them smaller and wider at the same time, the lower part of my face looks like a clown's because of these lips. Thanks in advance for your help!

The lips can be reduced with surgery.  In many cases, this can be done in an office setting.  Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an in person exam.

Hello and thank you for your question. It is possible to reduce your lip with a minor outpatient procedure. Both the upper and the lower lip can be reduced at the same time. It is important to find a surgeon with experience in lip reduction surgery. Best WishesTheodore T. Nyame MD  Harvard Trained Plastic Surgeon
