Hello. It's been almost a year since I had a lip reduction, and I'm still unhappy about how they turned out. They are thin, but still have a wide, over-dramatic cupids bow, and I need to work hard to close my mouth. Because of this, the area on the sides of my mouth are very full, and it always looks very stiff, and like I'm frowning. Not only does it look awkward, but the scar tissue is still numb. The size isn't too bad, but it just doesn't look right, and I regret having done them. Is there a way to make the lip tissue bigger, to reverse the reduction, even just a little? The surgeon I went to always seems busy, and you seem to know a lot about this procedure. So, is there any way I can have a normal looking mouth?
i would have to see you but the only thing that i believe is safe in the right hands is microdroplet silicone to slightly augment a reduced lip. s.
