When a facial feature seems too large, it can alter the balance of the face. Full lips are attractive, but lips that are too large can seem out of place. For those with larger lips, lip augmentation may be an option to achieve better facial balance. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer lip reduction surgery at our facility in Toledo, OH.
The size of your lips is based on genetics. While some people are unhappy with their thin lips, others want smaller lips. Lip reduction surgery is the opposite of augmentation – instead of adding volume, fatty tissue is removed to reshape and reduce the lip size. For many people with larger lips, this can improve the harmony of their facial features for more confidence in their appearance.
Dr. Peter Koltz is a highly respected and board certified plastic surgeon. With years of experience, he is one of the best plastic surgeons in the greater Toledo area. If you are unhappy with your lips, he can offer reshaping surgery to reduce the size and projection for a better appearance to your mouth.
Reshape Your Lips
Lip reduction surgery can be performed through small incisions inside the lips. Dr. Koltz will carefully remove fatty tissue and skin to create the desired size and shape, and then close the incisions. Since the scars will be inside the mouth, they are very discreet and not visible by others. The recovery from lip reduction procedures is minimal, with some swelling and possible bruising but limited downtime after your surgery.
Larger lips can impact your appearance, speech and other factors. While lip reduction requests are less common than lip augmentation, both achieve the same goal – balanced, beautiful lips. Dr. Koltz has the expertise to create natural-appearing lips that can improve your overall aesthetics of the mouth and face.
