LIP REDUCTION


LIP REDUCTION

Overview
alt
Lip reduction is a minor surgical procedure to reduce large, thick and protruding lips to bring them into harmony with the rest of the face. Certain groups of candidates will benefit from lip reduction. They include people who are born with thick lips and people who have had lip augmentation with undesirable results from too much or filler injection.
