I am a 27 year old African American woman who is considering having lip reduction. I have been unsatisfied with my lips all my life and after considering it for over a year. I want to get the procedure. I have seen your blogs on youtube and read all of the FAQ for the prodecure. I am not sure if I want to have my top lip reduced but I know I want my bottom lip reduced sufficiently. My bottom lip hangs and protrudes out, I just want smaller, even lips. I would like to know if you would be able to evaluate with pictures if my pictures of my lips and the desired size that I am looking for to see if this is possible.
P.S. I am in good health with no pre-existing conditions. I use no supplements and take no medications.
Hello Dr.Lam i was going to post the same topic but as someone else started this topic so i thought i might as well post my reply here as well. I am looking for lip reduction as well but is it possible if i can send you the pictures of my lips and from there you can evaluate with pictures and show me the best possible results you can get?
i have reviewed your photos. in a nutshell, you really would benefit from reducing both lips. if i just reduced the bottom lip, your top lip would look too full. if i reduced your top lip, it would only exaggerate your bottom lip. i am confident that you should have a very nice result with my technique. if you want to ask me more questions, you can. if you want to schedule a phone consultation or schedule the procedure or inquire about costs, you can email email@example.com or call 888-866-3388 if you are outside of Dallas. best, sml
I did not hear from you again as i wanted to know the cost for my treatment. I want to get both lips reduce and i was wondering if you can produce any computerize images to show me roughly how will they look after treatment.
yes, you can send me a photo for me to take a quick look at, but i don't do computerized imaging for lips. i can show you how the lips will look by drawing on your lips when you are here. also, the cost you need to send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. i have been asked not to quote prices. best, sml
