This is the correction of lips; in young or older persons; both males and females, but mostly girls opt for this procedure. Thick lips are reduced in size and white patches on the lips are also removed in this procedure.
Removing the excess tissue and suturing with fine material will result in invisible scar.
Only fluid diet is allowed for 48 to 72 hours. Initially there may be swelling of the lips which may take a week to two to come down to required size. Actual reduction of the lip size can be perceived after a 2-3 weeks.
Occasionally skin graft might be needed in those who require removal of large white patches.
