Lip Reduction Surgery

Facial balance is achieved when all the features harmonize together to create the look that is you. If a feature is too big or too small, they can seem out of place. This is true of the lips, that draw the attention of the eyes when you speak or smile. While some people want to augment their lips, others wish they were less pronounced for a more balanced mouth. Dr. Rousso in NYC offers lip reduction surgery for those that want to alter their lips to create a harmonized look to their face.

Changing the size and shape of larger or protruding lips is a delicate procedure. You want an experienced facial plastic surgeon that will create the look you desire, while protecting the function of the lips. A poorly performed lip procedure can impact more than just your appearance; it can affect your speech and mouth function. Dr. Rousso is a world-class facial and reconstructive surgeon who has the expertise, skill and artistic talent to reduce the size of your lips. He will create the shape you desire while protecting the functionality needed.

Facial Balance with Lip Resizing

An attractive face is comprised of a few key elements. Symmetry is important, making sure both sides of the nose, mouth and eyes match the other. Balance is also crucial in appearance. A nose that overpowers the face or lips that are too large, can throw off the balance. Resizing lips is more than just a change in the mouth. It is a change for the balance of the face. Dr. Rousso can resize the lips to fit and mesh with the rest of your features to create a balanced, symmetrical look that is attractive and appealing.

If you feel that your lips are too thick or pronounced, lip reduction surgery may be right for you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rousso at his office in Manhattan to explore options for resizing and reshaping your lips to achieve facial balance.
