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.
