Lip Reduction Is The Frightening Plastic Surgery Trend Today
While some people follow the footsteps of Kylie Jenner in enhancing their lips, others choose to be on a smaller side. Instagram is crowded with frightening photos of people that undergo lip reduction. Lip reduction is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce the size of the lips.
Yes, gone are the days of thick lips and say hi to thin pouts. The procedure entails removing the skin from the lips along the dry-wet border of the vermillion” and using stitches to create a new lip line. The result is a smaller, thinner pout.
Lip reduction is a surgery that is slowly gaining popularity
It is an outpatient procedure and it usually takes 15 to 30 minutes per lip depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. After a week, the stitches dissolve or removed manually.
It is crazy that the photos are making its way in social media.
Surgeons claimed that it is a simple procedure that will take less than an hour
Patients are advised to be on a “soft diet” following the operation until the swelling subsides, which can take up to a week. Surprisingly, lip reduction costs more than fillers. The surgery costs between $1,000 and $3,000, which is twice the price of a syringe of lip fillers.
Lip reduction surgery averages between $1,000 and $3,000
According to plastic surgeon Dr. Melissa Doft, lip reduction surgeries tend to be more popular in Asian countries. As Korean superstars, also known as Hallyu stars, grow in popularity, Asian features are also becoming mainstream. Some stars sport cute smiles showing off their thin pouts. Sunny of Girls Generation has the famous pout that most people envy.
Some people think that the post-surgery photos look gross but the end product is a cute and heartwarming smile.
