What is Lip Liposuction Surgery?

Liposuction is one of the most popular forms of body contouring. Both traditional and laser liposuction are surgical procedures that are designed to remove unwanted fatty deposits, creating a smoother, trimmer, and more toned appearance. Some of the most common areas that are treated with lip include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and chin; however, there’s another part of the body that can also be treated using liposuction: the lips.

While a lot of women desire fuller lips, some women who are born with naturally large lips may want to reduce the size of their lips. This can be done with lip liposuction.

What does Lip Liposuction Surgery Entail?

Lip liposuction is similar to other types of liposuction procedures, except, of course, your lips are the part of the body that will be treated.

The surgery involves removing skin and fat tissues from the lower and/or upper lips to reshape the entire area. If you choose Dr. CS Kim Plastic Surgery for your lip reduction, the procedure will be completed as an outpatient procedure right at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery clinic.

First, Dr. Kim will administer general or local anesthesia so that you won’t experience any pain during the surgery. Next, he will make a horizontal incision in the inner pink section of your lip to ensure that the scar is well-concealed. Once the incision is made, state-of-the-art tools will be used to remove excess fat and skin tissues from your lips. Once the tissues have been successfully removed, sutures will be used to close the incision.

Once the surgery is complete and you are fully recovered, the overall volume of your lips will be reduced.

What’s Recovery Like?

After lip reduction, it is normal to experience redness, swelling, and some degree of pain for a few days. You may find speaking and eating is difficult in the first few days following the procedure; however, that will improve as time goes on. Dr. Kim can prescribe pain medications to help ease any discomfort that you might experience. Additionally, applying ice packs to your lips can reduce swelling and pain. You may also develop bruises, but they will subside in time.

It’s normal to see some degree of reddish-colored discharge coming out of the incision site. If you notice anything unusual, contact Dr. Kim immediately.

Drink plenty of fluids; using a straw will make drinking more comfortable. You may also want to consume blended or smooth foods that are easy to swallow and don’t require much chewing during the first few days following the procedure; yogurt, ice cream, gelatin, and nutritional supplement drinks, for example. Prior to surgery, Dr. Kim will offer you helpful tips that will make your recovery go as smoothly as possible.

Recovery time varies from person to person and depends on a variety of factors, such as whether you had one or both lips treated, and if you had any other procedures – such as facial liposuction – performed at the same time.

Reasons to Consider Lip Liposuction

Like any other cosmetic procedure, the reasons for wanting lip liposuction surgery vary and are personal, but some of the reasons may include feeling like your overly large lips attract too much attention, or that you have a difficult time eating or speaking because your natural lips are too big.

Whatever the reason, if you are considering lip liposuction surgery, when you choose Dr. Kim as your cosmetic surgeon, you can have confidence knowing that you will receive outstanding results. Offering years of experience and a proven track record of success, Dr. Kim has successfully transformed the appearance of countless patients throughout the New Canaan, CT area with liposuction, and he can do the same for you.
