Hypotonic Lips Reduction

The most striking part of the lower third of the face are the lips. Lips contribute extensively to the facial expressions. This important part of the face plays a vital role in conveying attractiveness and emotions. Full lush lips are regarded to be the best to express youth and sensuality. The overall harmony and beauty of the face can be changed with an excessively bulged lip. Such lips are considered to be unaesthetic.

Being a non-invasive procedure, lip correction is often treated as an art. The asymmetry or large size of the lips mainly tend people to undergo lip correction procedure.

Lip reduction surgery is basically suited for four types of candidates:

  • Specific races/genetic born with overly thick ethnic lips

  • People who have undergone a previous lip augmentation with undesirable results

  • People who are suffering from congenital defects such as cleft lips

  • Burn injury or accident cases, healed with excess tissues such as bumps and lumps

Routine habits such as talking, eating, and maintianing good dental hygiene, can be affected by enlarged lips. Poor-confidence is observed in children and adults, who have protruding lips.


The lip surgery is neither suitable for improving sag eyebrows or crooked or large nose, nor it removes wrinkles and face lines. In lip reduction procedure, a strip of the red part of the lip is removed along with the underlying tissue from one end to the other end. Local anesthesia is used during the surgery. At the same time, both the lips can be surgically corrected. Other facial surgeries can also be combined with this reduction procedure. Cosmetic lip surgery aims to achieve a consistency between the upper and lower lips. For attaining a normal lip competence, the harmony with the whole face is also maintained. Dermal fillers or fat are used in lip augmentation. However, lip augmentation is not chosen to be a best option because increased lip movement causes a great deal of fat resorption. The best options may be hyalouronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane.
