4 Reasons To Consider Lip Reduction

Woman After Lip Augmentation Houston TX

Dr. Harirchian offers a number of procedures to change the appearance of your lips. In addition to adding volume to thin lips, she also offers dedicated techniques to reduce the size of your lips as well. Lip reduction is an in-office surgical procedure that requires minimal discomfort and length of healing. There are a variety of reasons why you may be considering a lip reduction procedure.

Common Reasons For Choosing Lip Reduction

  • Proportion – If the size of your lips is out of proportion in relation to the size of your nose or other features on your face, it may be a good reason to choose a lip reduction. There are many reasons your lips may be larger, but no matter how they got that way, they do not need to remain that way.
  • Miscommunication – Oversized lips can miscommunicate your facial expressions. Often times, oversized lips are equated with pouty expressions. While you may feel down and ‘pouty’ at times, it’s probably not the message you’re probably trying to communicate constantly.
  • Upper lip – Many patients choose lip reduction on the upper lip. Some ethnicities prefer an appearance of thinner lips, particularly the upper lip. Dr. Nuttapon, a plastic surgeon from Thailand explained that she “believes lip reduction has become popular in Asian countries because thin lips are associated with Western-style beauty.”
  • Macrocheilia – This is a condition that results in permanent, abnormal swelling of your lips.

Facelift, eyelid surgery

I am healthy and wanted my appearance to be reflective of the way I felt inside. I am very pleased with my procedure. Very natural results. Everything was just as Dr H explained to me. When I came out of recovery, Dr H was there.

Lower eyelid surgery

My experience with Dr Harirchian has been fantastic, both in the office and during/after my surgical procedure. She is knowledgeable, caring, warm and confident. I appreciate her personal touch (calling, accessibility). I was increasingly self-conscious of my lower lid bags/dark circles. I was ready for a permanent solution after trying fillers. I am beyond thrilled with the results.

Love my new eyes. I had dark circles under my eyes which would not go away with makeup or concealer. Dr H put filler in my eyes and it worked! I love it.

Amazing rhinoplasty result!

We had a very positive experience. Dr Harirchian was professional and caring. We will be back! My daughter was having a terrible time breathing and was unhappy with the size/shape of her nose. Dr Harirchian helped her breathe and gave her the nose she always wanted.
