REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
LIP REDUCTION PROCEDURE
Before he begins the procedure, the doctor will place precise markings on or around the lip area to help control the extent of the alterations. He will then administer local anesthesia to the immediate area. If you believe that you’ll feel more comfortable with a deeper anesthetic, you can discuss this with your doctor before the procedure.
The doctor will start by creating a precisely calculated horizontal incision on the inside of the lip. The surgeon will then be removing excess tissue to reduce lip volume and create a more desirable lip line before carefully closing the incision with stitches.
Incisions made on the lips are similar to “bikini cuts” due to the technique that will be used for more precise contouring. The incision on the top lip will be in the form of two circles connected by a center band, like a bikini top, while the incision on the lower lip will be in the form of a V, like a bikini bottom.
To achieve even thinner lips, the inner part of the lip is rolled toward the inside of the mouth, as making this part of the lip less visible can makes the lips appear smaller. Once the alterations have been made, Dr. Sedgh will close the incision with strategically-placed dissolvable sutures to minimize visible scarring.
Patients commonly experience side effects such as swelling and bruising, but you should be able to return to your normal routine within a week. As long as you continuously follow the prescribed aftercare instructions and guidelines on eating and maintaining good oral hygiene, the healing period should be quicker and more comfortable.
Dr. Sedgh will be scheduling follow-up appointments throughout the next few months up to a year (in person or through video conference) as part of his standard procedure in personally monitoring and assessing your post-surgery progress to ensure optimum recovery.
