Lip Shaping

What is Lip shaping?

Despite general differences in men's lips and women’s lips, it is possible to transform masculine lips to more feminine lips. Men usually have thin lips with a lower positioned upper lip that covers the line of teeth. Women have slightly puckered, fuller lips with a higher positioned upper lip that reveals the line of teeth, for your consideration, our specialized surgeon offers the following lip modification procedures:

Upper and lower lip reduction:

Lip reduction surgery is a procedure for patients who have naturally large lips. The lip reduction procedure is performed under local anesthesia on out-patients or may be performed under general anesthesia if they are undergoing multiple procedures. The surgeon creates a horizontal incision on the inside of the lips, then removes excess fat and tissue from the lips before closing the incision with stitches. The lip reduction procedure can be performed on the upper and lower lips to improve the patient's appearance and balance.

Lip reduction risks:

The side effect of lip reduction includes pain, swelling, bruises, and redness at the treatment area. The serious risk for patients that have lip reduction surgery is an infection or an allergic reaction to the anesthesia.

Lip reduction recovery:

The days following the surgery, patients should take pain medication and put an ice bag on the lips to decrease pain and swelling. The patients can usually return to work within a week of surgery. The best results are seen at about two to three months after surgery. 
Cause of Lip Shaping
Many men and women undergo lip augmentation to increase the size of the upper and/or lower lips. However, there are some people out there that feel that their lips are too large. Individuals that have large lips may feel self-conscious about their appearance. What many of these people do not know is that there is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to bring down the size of the lips so they are in proportion with the rest of your face.
Treatment Summary
Upper lip lift (Upper lip lift shortening):
The upper lip lift procedure is for patients who feel that their upper lip is excessively elongated. Normally, the ideal length of the upper lip to the columella of the nose is between 12-15 mm. If the lenth is significantly longer than the average, patients can take the advantage of the upper lip lift or lip shortening procedure. There are two types of upper lip lift surgery: 
  • Making an incision along the lower edge of the nose. The excess amount of skin is removed, and the upper lip is lifted by suturing the cut edges together. It is really important to close the incision in layers. As a result, the upper lip is pulled upward.
  • Making an incision along the vemillon border of the lips. The segment of skin is removed from just above the vemillon border, then sutured closed very carefully. So the upper lip is effectively pulled upward and shortened. The scar from this incision could be quite visible.  
Lip Lifting Surgery:
This procedure will raise the upper lip, creating a slight puckering effect on the lips. The incision is made along the lower edge of the nose. After the wounds heal, the scar is difficult to detect since it is along the natural crease line. The surgery takes about 45 minutes with the use of local anesthesia. Patient may leave immediately after the surgery.
Lip augmentation
  • Plumping Injection: Injection of Collagen or Hyaluronic Acid – this procedure is more popular because of the considerably longer lasting results. There is much less swelling as well. Use of Fat Graft – This procedure involves injecting fat into the lips is not very popular because the fat is absorbable and will disintegrate within 3 – 6 months. There is also considerable swelling immediately after the injection.
  • Lips augmentaion by Alloderm: Alloderm for lip enhancement is a good option. It is inserted to the lips via a tunnel allowing for the enhancement like a lattice structure that lets vines grow in your garden. It is a piece of skin that has been stripped of its living cells; all that is left is a soft, collagen structure. The collagen structure is inserted into the lips where it allows the patient's own cell to attach and grow.
