Surgeries for Lips and Chin

Thick Lips
Thick or fat lips are reduced in size by removing a strip of the red mucosa of the lip along with the underlying tissue from one end to the other end.
This surgery is done under local anesthesia without any hospital stay.Both the lips can be reduced at the same time.This procedure also can be combined with other facial surgeries.

Double Chin
Double chins are corrected by removing the excess of fat under the jaw bone by suctioning method or by open method through a small cut under the jaw bone.
The latter method is preferred if the muscles also have to be tightened. Double chins can be corrected under local anesthesia without any hospital stay.This can also be done along with face lift.
Receded Chin
Patients with a receding chin but with normal dental bite (Dental Occlusion) are good candidates for augmentation of the chin. If there will be an abnormal dental bite, that should be corrected first and then the chin should be revaluated for augmentation.
A cut is usually made inside the mouth just below the gum or under the chin on the outside skin and a silicone implant is placed in front of the chin bone. This surgery is done under local anesthesia and requires no hospital stay.
