Lip reduction surgeries in India are done to decrease the volume of the lip. Like other surgical procedure, lip reduction surgeries too carries some complications.
Many people in the showbiz have undergone lift elevation surgery called as the ‘Celebrity lip lift’ which involves making an incision at the base of the nose and taking out a part of the lip tissue. This in turn increases the outward movement of the upper lip thus giving the person a ‘celebrity lip lift’. These procedures are not without risks and the biggest of the ‘celebrity lip lift’ is the prominence of scar at the base of the nose.

Local or General anaesthesia can be used for this procedure depending on the patients pain threshold and the extent of surgery. It is very important to understand that the lip has very prominent blood supply and as a result significant swelling and bruising has to be expected.
A long incision is made along the entire length on the upper and lower lip or either one needing the treatment. The incision is given usually along the wet part of the lip that is the inside the lip or at the junction of the wet and dry mucosa of the lip. However, the choice of incision usually depends on the surgeon’s choice and the amount of lip reduction needed and the area from where it has to be reduced.

The excess tissue is now removed in a wedge form from the inner aspect of the lip or at the junction of the dry and wet mucosa. After the tissue has been excised, hemostasis is achieved using a surgical cautery. The incision is now closed in a single or double layer sutures to get the best anatomical closure possible. The surgery approximately takes 30 mins.
