Understanding The Lips Reduction Need And Surgery

The most often cosmetic lip modification sought is, by far and away, to make a little lip larger. However, some patients, both genders, believe that their lips are excessively large and would like them to be reduced. Lip competence (the ability of the lips to come together and form a seal) can be functionally hampered by abnormally thick lips, which can also draw unwanted attention and cause shame.

Various Causes For Bigger Lips

Macrocheilia, or very big lips, can develop for a variety of causes. Some people just naturally have them, while others develop them for a variety of unique medical conditions. Big lips have a strong ethnic connotation.

The double lip, which only affects the top lip, is one disorder of the lips that might be mistaken for macrocheilia. This is due to the top lip being overly big as well as an additional tissue roll on the mucosa-covered underside of the top lip. When one smiles, this is noticeable because the additional roll of mucosa appears as a lateral tissue roll just below the top lip. Compared to a big outer upper lip, its surgical removal is carried out slightly differently.

Why Is The Surgery Required?

Surgery to reduce the size of the lips is intended to make them more proportional to one another and the remainder of the face. A patient aims to avoid becoming the most prominent feature of their face that draws attention to them.

The Lip Surgery Process

The procedure for lips reduction, (วิธีแก้ปากห้อย, which is the term in Thai) surgery is straightforward, but the marking is crucial. A preliminary mark (line) is made at the wet-dry intersection; however, it may alter depending on whether the moist mucosa or the dry vermilion is more noticeable on the lip. Dried vermilion is the most difficult component to remove from certain huge lips. Others may have more mucosa and moist vermilion. To make this conclusion, a thorough lip examination must be performed before surgery. No matter what portion of the top lip is removed, the final repair shouldn’t be visible while the lips are relaxed or smiling.

To avoid ant tissue surpluses, a wedge-shaped portion of the extra lip is carved off and reduced as it enters the mouth at the corners. I prefer to maintain the cutout’s final edge a few millimeters from the mouth’s corner. Even though more profound anesthesia would be more enjoyable, lip reductions can be performed using local anesthesia.
