Lip reduction at Clínica Sanza in Barcelona consists of redefining its contour and volume, resecting the excess tissue or rearranging it to achieve a desired aesthetic and harmonious result in harmony with the rest of the facial structure.

This decrease in lips may be due to several factors:
  • Large lips from birth
  • Individuals who have had silicone or biopolymers in the past
  • People who have had hyaluronic acid and find their lips too large
Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, is a reference center in the treatment of lip reduction.

Frequently asked questions about lip dissolution surgery

Lip reduction is a simple surgical procedure in which we remove excess lip volume, upper, lower or both, to give a more aesthetic and natural appearance.
Any patient who does not agree with the volume or shape of the lip, whether it is the case of a lip that is naturally large or lips that have been injected with substances, usually permanent silicone type, biopolymers or other substances that leave their mark on the lip tissues, deforming them and giving an unsightly and unnatural appearance.
One of the probable causes is that permanent materials such as biopolymers or silicones have been placed on the lips and, with the passage of time, have shifted to the sides of the lips or accumulated to form lumps, which gives the characteristic appearance of two lipsticks that are so unsightly.
Yes. By performing a lip reduction, it is possible to totally or partially eliminate the foreign substances in the lip, restoring the natural proportion to each of the areas.
Once the intervention has been performed, you can talk, but do not laugh loudly or gesticulate too much. There are patients who undergo a small reduction and others who undergo a much larger reduction or in different areas. In any case, once the lip is deflated, you will be able to gesture and eat normally, this may take 3 to 5 days after surgery.
No, although there may be a temporary decrease in sensitivity and mobility, this depends on the extent of the reduction, but usually after 5 to 10 days the lip has recovered.
Yes, although these stitches are reabsorbable, that is, they do not need to be removed, although occasionally they can be removed once the lip is healed without waiting for them to fall out on their own, and this is after 7-10 days.
It is performed under local anesthesia or sedation (like that of the dentist), lasts about an hour and once finished you can go home peacefully. It is not complicated for us. We have many years of experience and we are pioneers in removing silicone from the lips. We have done more than 500 patients with this problem.
Lip reconstruction encompasses all those procedures aimed at restoring natural function and shape to the lips, whether due to congenital problems, trauma, iatrogenesis, burns or disease. Since there are so many corrective possibilities, a thorough evaluation by the surgical team at Clínica Sanza is always necessary to determine which procedure is the most appropriate for your case.
Yes, frankly there are and we still see many people with exaggerated and ugly lips. We can’t decide if these people are happy with their lips and want them that way to attract attention or if they want to have more natural lips. Sometimes they want them that way. Other times, they are afraid to have surgery, but most people do not have it removed due to lack of knowledge. Many believe that they would be left without lips, but this is not true.
No, of course not. We can show you hundreds of cases and you will be able to see how beautiful lips look and not small. We can even remove part of the silicone if desired. It does not always have to be all or nothing.
