Question: How extensive is the surgery to reduce large lips?
Answer: Reduction cheiloplasty is a very common procedure to reduce lips which are asymmetrical or large. This technique works very well in patients who have allergic reactions where they have extreme swelling of their lips that even after the allergic reaction had been treated there is still some lip swelling or some lip asymmetry. Reducing the lip is also very good in cases where there is asymmetry of the lip due to trauma in the lip with healing. This surgery can be performed very well.
