Voluminous and full lips are usually a sign of beauty and attraction but when the lips are disproportionately large they may seem disharmonious with other facial features. People who have this condition may consider lip reduction surgery. Whether you have genetically large lips or have acquired them through an accident or illness, the size of your lips can be reduced. People who have undergone a lip reduction in Dubai have reported that they feel much more confident about their looks because of the proportionate and shapely lips.

Finally, incisions will be closed with stitches.
The procedure can be performed on both the upper and lower lips at the same time.

The cost varies from person to person and you should ask your practitioner about the exact cost. Here at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, the average cost of lip reduction surgery starts from AED 10,000.
