Question : I would like lip reduction surgery. I’ve always been self-conscious of my large lips. What sort of recovery would I be looking at?
Answer : In reduction cheiloplasty, patients mostly recover after one week. I remind the patient that after the surgery, they may a lot of swelling of their lips. On initial postop period, their lips may be swollen and larger than their lips in the past. However, over time, this improves.
