How long until I see results?
The time it takes to see results after a Lip Reduction procedure can vary from patient to patient. Typically, some initial results may be visible immediately after the surgery, but the full outcome and final shape of the lips will become more apparent as the initial swelling subsides.
Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days and weeks following the procedure. It’s essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Ort to promote proper healing and achieve the desired results
Can I combine a Lip Reduction with other procedures?
Yes, of course! If you are considering additional facial procedures along with a Lip Reduction, it’s important to discuss this in your consultation. Procedures like Cheek Lifts or Fillers are not only popular but also common to combine with Lip Reduction. Dr. Ort will evaluate your facial anatomy, discuss your desired outcomes, and provide recommendations tailored to achieve the best possible results.
