Whenever you speak or smile, attention is brought to your lips. The right size and shape of the lips are wonderful assets to improve your appearance. While many people want to have fuller lips, there are those who wish to reduce the size of their lips for a more balanced appearance. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, offers lip reduction surgery at our offices to help patients achieve the desired shape and size of their lips.

Lips that protrude too far can seem out of balance with the other facial features. In some cases, the size of the lips can affect speech or result in constant biting of the lower lip. Those who experience issues due to larger lips or are self-conscious of their appearance have the option to reduce one or both lips. Dr. Rosenberg is a highly qualified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has the skills to reduce lip size to create functional and balanced lips.

Undergoing Lip Surgery

Lip reduction surgery is usually an outpatient procedure that takes one to two hours. To reduce the size of one or both lips, a small incision is made on the interior of the lip. Excessive fat and tissue are removed to create the desired lip size and shape, then the incision is closed. Since the incision is inside the mouth, the scar is not visible. After the surgery, the area can be tender and swollen. The results will become more apparent as the swelling dissipates over the following weeks.

If you are bothered by the larger size of your lips, you do have options. Lip reduction surgery can help balance the size of your lips with your other facial features, making them look and feel more compatible. To learn more about lip reduction surgery, contact the office of Dr. Rosenberg in NYC or Upper East Side to schedule a consultation.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
