Lips, one of the most important complements of facial expression, have been the symbol of attractiveness and beauty throughout history. A number of aesthetic operations can be performed to have full, wrinkle-free and young-looking lips. While there is a structural thinness in some people, sometimes there may be thinning of the lips due to aging and menopause. This problem can be corrected with simple surgical interventions or non-surgical methods.
In cases where the shape of the lip folds is aesthetically pleasing, but the volume is insufficient, the injection of temporary fillers is the most commonly used and therefore the most well-known. It would be more accurate to recommend simple surgical interventions for long-term results.
Lip thinning is the process of reducing excessively thick lips. It is the process of removing an elliptical piece from the mucosa of the thick lip (the red colored part) together with the fat tissues underneath and suturing it with a suitable technique. These procedures are applications that can be easily performed under local anesthesia. Swelling usually disappears within 7-10 days.
