Medical Name: Microcheilia/Macrocheilia
Also Known As: Lip Reshaping
The Procedure: Large lips can be sufficiently reduced, with the incision placed in the mucosa (soft tissue) inside the mouth. For undersized lips, the incision is placed on the skin above the vermilion, the outline of the lips-the junction between the skin and mucosa (soft tissue).
Dr. Hanna’s Notes: Our lips are considered a highly visual feature of the face and play an important role in our facial expressions. Oversized, undersized, protruding, aged or deformed lips can detract dramatically from one's over-all appearance. This is the surgical procedure, but you can also increase the size of your lips with Restylane injections.
