Alessandra Canal - Auckland Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgeon
Private Service, Plastic Surgery
A surgical procedure can be performed to make your lips to appear fuller without having foreign material injected into them.
In this procedure, small cuts (incisions) are made on the inside of the lip and the tissue is reshaped. The surgery takes about 1 hour for the upper or lower lip and it is performed under local anaesthetic (the area is numb but you are awake). It will probably take 1-2 weeks for the swelling to disappear.
