Lip Reconstruction

The lips are integral to mouth function and the aesthetics of the face. The delicate skin and fatty tissue in the lips can be damaged due to injury, disease or trauma, resulting in detrimental changes to the form and function of the mouth. When the lips are deformed, lip reconstruction surgery can restore a balanced appearance and proper function. At Dr. Sedgh Facial Plastic Surgery, we provide lip reconstruction surgery at our facility in West Hollywood, CA.

Lip Reconstruction Surgery

Lip abnormalities can occur at any point in your life. Some individuals are born with lip birth defects that can affect the shape and performance of the lips. Others experience trauma to the lips or diseases like mouth cancer that change appearance and function. Lip reconstruction surgery is a complicated procedure that is designed to create natural-appearing lips that are functional for speech, smiling, eating and other mouth expressions.

Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial reconstructive procedures, including lip trauma repair surgery. His expertise and surgical artistry have helped many of his patients restore lip function while creating a beautiful, balanced mouth appearance.

Lip Repair Plastic Surgery

Lip reconstruction surgery usually involves skin and fat grafting to repair or replace damaged tissue. The new lip tissue must also connect to the many mouth muscles to allow for functional lip movement. Dr. Sedgh utilizes innovative surgical techniques to create incredible new lips for his patients who have experienced trauma to their mouth from injury or disease. This procedure can be a life-changing surgery for patients who have damaged lips, improving their appearance, confidence and mouth function.

Your lips are vital for speech, smiling, eating and giving kisses to those you love. If you experience an injury that damages your lips, there are options to restore their form and function.
