Hi. My lips are too big and I want them reduced. Does anybody know something about lip reduction? What are risks of such procedure? How long does it take? What is the price for lip reduction?

Hi. I had a lip reduction. It takes some 30 minutes to be performed. I was feeling groggy from the anesthetic. I had to sleep on two pillows for two weeks to keep my head elevated. First 3 days after the procedure my face was swollen and there was some bruising. No worries, all this will disappear. I was feeling discomfort for several weeks after lip reduction because I had to be very careful with what I eat - nothing raw for you after lip reduction. I had to rinse with Listerine few times a day. Possible risks include asymmetry, numbness, hematoma, seroma, infection, excess scar tissue, lumps (very rare) and, of course, dissatisfaction. Asymmetry can be corrected easily. Average price for lip reduction is from $900-2000.

Cost me $2700 + $800 for general anasthesia + tax = $3600. :-D

Great doctor in Annapolis, MD. Only got 2/3 lip reduction done as he was afraid of making look abnormal. :-P But, I told him my red lips are abnormal already. So, remove them completely and I will not be abnormal. :$ In February he will decide if more reduction is needed. No symmetry. Had it done 3 weeks ago. Everything A-ok so far. Have to go back on February 19th 2008 for checkup. Will try to get zero lips then. :-D

Please read my posts in 'Anyone tried the lip reduction surgery'

:-( That´s a lot of money for a lip reduction...which is actually a simple procedure, no offense but your doctor is really after your cash. Unbelievable!!!! general anesthesia?. I know a lot of plastic surgeons who has done this procedure but in your case that´s a nightmare doctor and he even want to see if a 2nd op is necessary. Sorry it just makes me angry! :-(

Dr Rakesh Kalra is a very professional and senior surgeon with plenty of experience. His facility is in a modest town of Dehradun about 200 miles from the capital city of Delhi.

I ask my sister for the price and she told me she paid like a thousand dollars but she paid for the consultation because the doctor wanted to see her first

Is any of that covered by private insurance at all or does it have to be non-elective surgery? I thik that is a lot of money to have to pay for a consultation.

For the consultation is only $50dlls and I think they used some financial group you have to call them or se their site at clinica de cirugia cosmetica

So do you mean that they give you a loan to get the surgery? I am unfamiliar with this so you'll have to forgive all my questions. I am not too sure of it all :)
