Lip Thinning

There are several options for lip thinning. My first suggestion would be to schedule an in person consultation with a surgeon in your area. Options could include liposuction, excision, and VY advancement. However, it is always best to talk to an actual surgeon to go over options.
Best of luck to you!

Can upper lip be made thinner?

A lip reduction is a very reliable procedure to reduce the size of either the upper or lower lip. Working with your surgeon, you can decide how much reduction you wish and how to best shape the lips. The scar is typically unseen and most patients are very happy with the results. Best of Luck  Dr Harrell
