What is Lip Reduction in Thailand?

Lip Reduction Thailand is a relatively uncomplicated and safe procedure. While some people long for large, luscious lips, others are less comfortable with their full pout. By undergoing Lip Reduction Surgery, you’ll be able to change your lip-size and therefore feel more comfortable with your appearance. It involved removing a horizontal wedge of the lip to both decrease the lip pouting and its volume. It involves a scar on the inner side of the lip which in the vast majority of cases heals extremely well.

What Result Can I Expect?

Lip Reduction Surgery can permanently reduce lip size. This Plastic Surgery in Thailand may be performed alone or in combination with other Facial Cosmetic Plastic Surgery procedures, such as Chin Augmentation, Jaw Augmentation or Rhinoplasty in Thailand.

Lip Reduction results are permanent, but if you find that your lips are too thin after your surgery, Lip Augmentation may be performed to correct this outcome.

How a Lip Reduction Surgery Perform in Thailand

Lip Reduction in Thailand normally takes about 30-40 minutes to perform. It may be performed in a hospital, a freestanding surgery center, or in your surgeon’s office. It can be performed by a Plastic Surgeon or by a maxillofacial surgeon who may be a medical doctor or a dentist (or even both).

The Lip Reduction is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Surgery may be performed under general anesthesia if you are undergoing multiple procedures, or if you feel more comfortable being unconscious during your procedure. During treatment, the plastic surgeon creates a horizontal incision on the inside of the lip. The surgeon then removes excess fat and tissue from the lip before closing the incision with stitches. The Lip Reduction procedure can be performed on the upper and lower lip to improve the patient’s appearance and balance out facial features.

Lip Reduction Surgery Recovery

Although patients do experience some post-surgical side effects after lip reduction surgery, they are typically pretty minor when compared to more invasive operations such as Facelift or Eyelid Surgery. In the days following surgery, patients should take pain medication and apply ice bags to the lips to limit pain and swelling. In many cases, dissolvable sutures are used, so stitches do not need to be removed at a later date. Patients can usually return to work within a week of surgery. Best results are seen at about two to three months after surgery.

Preparing for Lip Reduction Surgery

You should be given a preoperative information packet that explains everything you should do and know before your surgery date. The packet should include a list of all medications you should avoid before your surgery, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Your instructions should cover what to do with any prescription drugs you take.


You may need to have blood tests done and you may be asked to have a general physical if you are above a certain age or if you have any health condition such as asthma, high blood pressure, or diabetes.

What are the Risks and Complications?

  • Asymmetry
  • Numbness (usually temporary)
  • Lumps and excess scar tissue in lips
  • Dissatisfaction with the cosmetic results
