Just like some people want to increase the fullness of their lips, there are others that want to reduce the fullness. Some individuals are born with thick or full lips that may seem too large or unbalanced with their other facial features. Lip reduction plastic surgery can reshape and resize the lips to the desired appearance for improved facial harmony. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery offers lip reduction procedures to achieve facial balance at our clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The size and shape of lips are determined by genetics. While full lips are desirable, when they are too full, it can cause issues. Protruding lips impact speech and appearance, and the larger size can be distracting. Individuals unhappy with the appearance and size of their lips can benefit from lip reduction plastic surgery that can create the desired lip shape and fullness.

Reshaping Larger Lips

Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg has spent many years improving the appearance of New Yorkers. As a double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Shteynberg has the expertise and skills needed for intricate procedures like lip reshaping plastic surgery. To reshape and resize larger lips, Dr. Shteynberg first listens to his patients and their desired outcome during a consultation. Dr. Shteynberg discusses the procedure and how to achieve the right lip size and shape. Incisions can be used to remove skin and tissue from the lips to symmetrically reduce them inside. The incisions can be placed inside the lips to hide any scars, creating discreet results.

Lip reduction plastic surgery is delicate, but it can achieve beautiful results. Removing excess tissue can achieve lips that look balanced with the other facial features for a more attractive overall appearance. Carefully reducing the size may also improve speech and lip function for the patient.

If you are unhappy with your oversized lips, consider the benefits of lip reduction plastic surgery. Contact our team at Vantage Plastic Surgery to schedule a lip consultation with Dr. Shteynberg. We have two clinics in New York City for your convenience – our Upper East Side clinic in Manhattan and Brooklyn location. Call today to book your appointment.
