Lower lip reduction surgery


Overview of the Case:

Lip reduction, also known as chelioplasty reduction, is a plastic surgery technique that improves the appearance of the lower lip, upper lip, or both lips by reducing their volume. It usually only requires a local anesthetic, takes less than an hour to complete, and provides lasting effects.

Some medical issues that affect oral function, such as drooling, speech impediments, and feeding difficulties, can benefit from this surgery.

In most cases, lip reduction is well tolerated. Many people report little to moderate edema and little or no pain. The majority of lip reduction patients recover in 1-3 weeks. Patients usually go back to work the next day. On the other hand, returning to intensive activity can take several weeks.

Many people today prefer lip reduction surgery in Hyderabad to lessen the volume of their lips. This safe outpatient surgery may benefit you whether you desire thinner lips or have a medical reason to lower their volume.


Detailed Description:

The patient was unhappy with the appearance of his lower lip when he came to Redefine Plastic Surgery & Hair Transplant Centre. Dr. HarikiranChekuri, a qualified cosmetic surgeon in Hyderabad, performed a complete physical examination of the lips, skin, and teeth.

To improve the appearance of the lower lip, Dr. Harikiran suggested lip reduction surgery. He explained the procedure to the patient. After receiving informed consent, Dr. Harikiran performed the lip reduction surgery. The surgery took less than an hour to complete and was done under local anesthesia.


Post-treatment Guidelines:

After lip surgery, a person is expected to deal with swelling and bruising. To deal with the discomfort, the patient is prescribed medicines. The surgeon may advise the patient to use an antiseptic mouthwash throughout the day. This will aid in the prevention of infection.


Post-surgery Diet:

Because the incisions are within the mouth, eating may be difficult at first. It may be advisable to eat soft, pureed foods shortly after the lip reduction surgery. Acidic foods, such as oranges and tomatoes should be avoided because they can irritate wounds.


Follow-up Instruction:

Lip reduction surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing the patient to return home the same day. After a week or so, the stitches are removed. Within a week or so, people can return to work. The best surgical outcomes are usually seen two to three months after the procedure.


Patient’s Feedback:

This is what the patient said, “I was displeased with the appearance of my lower lip. After a proper diagnosis, Dr. Harikiran recommended lip reduction surgery. I am delighted with the outcomes of the lip reduction treatment. My lips have a renewed look that complements the rest of my face. I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. HarikiranChekuri.”
