Lips are a very prominent facial feature and is usually one of the first things someone is likely to notice when you first meet. They come in all shapes and sizes, some are big and very prominent while others are much finer and less noticeable. Even the finest lips can catch the attention of others if they’re not in proportion to the rest of your features.
Being such a noticeable part of the face means it can be quite difficult to take attention away from the lips, especially if the they’re big and disproportionate. Big lips are generally considered a thing of beauty, but require a lot of care and maintenance to keep them looking good and preventing blemishes from forming. In fact, many people with thin lips spend substantial sums of money each year to make their lip bigger, with fillers, all in the name of beauty.
However, having disproportionately big lips can make some people feel self-conscious, especially when meeting someone for the first time. You may notice when interacting with new people that you catch them staring, or double taking, which naturally makes you feel like you’re being judged.
The anxiety experienced by some people, because of how their lips look, isn’t something that usually occurs when interacting with friends and family, as they already appreciate you for who you are and not the way you lips look, but when having to stand up in front of an audience or presenting to a room full of strangers.
Why are some Lips bigger than others?
Genetics are a significant component is determining how your facial feature look and develop. Studies from the University College London have identified specific genes that determine a number of facial featuring including the nose and lips. Based on this, a person’s ethnic background can indicate, to a certain degree, the characteristics of facials, including the shape and size of the lip.
What is the solutions for big lips?
For a lot of people having big lips isn’t an issue or they have come to appreciate their look and are comfortable with it.
For others who have big lips or lips that are not aesthetically pleasing to them, there is a surgical solution that can reduce the size and adjust the shape of the lip to be more in line with what they want.
Things to consider before lip reduction?
Having any form of cosmetic surgery is a big decision and needs a lot of careful thought and consideration, especially when it results in significant change in your appearance.
It’s important to consider how necessary the procedure is for you and set expectations regarding what you want and whether it is achievable.
Available lip treatment
Lip reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure carried out to reduce the size and change the shape of the lips. The procedure enhances the proportions of the lips and improves the overall balance of the face.
The procedure is quick, taking 20 to 30 minutes per lip to complete. It’s usually carried out under local anaesthetic, so you should be discharged on the same day.
The procedure can be carries out on the top or bottom lip or on both lips, and can achieve a perfectly formed, natural appearance. This is done by removing skin from the dry-wet boarder of the lip and using stitches to reduce and reshape the lips.
