The lip correction surgery performed by Clínica Sanza in Barcelona will depend on the case of each patient. There are some alterations, whether congenital or acquired, that affect the lip symmetry and their neighboring structures, and which may require a corrective procedure, wether medical-aesthetical or surgical, to redefine the harmony of the affected lips.
In the case of asymmetries an evaluation is necessary for each one of the structures to determine its’ cause and its’ possible solutions.
