  • Look for the previous patients who have got Lip Surgery done successfully from the doctor.
  • Make sure that the doctor, as well as the staff, is well trained and professional.
  • You should make sure that the surgery clinic or hospital is certified, and not fake!

What To Expect Before Beginning The Procedure Of Lip Surgery?

Before beginning the treatment, Dr Hiren Bhatt will make sure that he knows your entire medical history. This is necessary to have a smooth procedure. 

Also, any pertaining allergies must be told to the doctor before the procedure itself. Some pictures might be taken in order to analyze the result after the procedure.

What Is Lip Reduction or Reduction Cheiloplasty?

Many times, one can observe that the lips are overly large. These may be due to a variety of reasons like:

  • Thick tissues on the lips
  • Dentofacial deformities
  • Glandular Hypertrophy
  • Infection or Trauma

Overly large lips affect the appearance of the face and look disproportionate with the other features. In such a case Dr Hiren Bhatt will work on removing excess skin and tissue in order to reduce their size. 

How Is Lip Reduction Surgery Performed At Nishtha Wellness?

Lip Reduction surgery at Nishtha Wellness is performed by our Board Certified Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Hiren Bhatt. The following steps are involved in a lip reduction surgery:

  1. The first step involves the administration of anesthesia. Generally, local anesthesia is preferred as it is a small procedure.
  2. The next step is making the incision. A horizontal incision is made on the inner pink side of the lips, either upper or lower depending upon which has to be reduced. 
  3. Dr Hiren Bhatt will then remove the excess tissue and fat to reduce its volume.
  4. The incisions are then sealed with absorbable sutures or stitches.

What Is Lip Enhancement or Augmentation Cheiloplasty?

Lip enhancement also referred to as cheiloplasty or lip augmentation helps to volumize the lips and increase their size. Sometimes, very thin lips do not look flattering and hamper the overall appearance of the face. Even the smile of the person is affected. In such a case, the patient can opt for a lip enhancement procedure. 

Lip enhancement at Nishtha well is done with one of the following ways:

  1. Fat Grafting
  2. Hyaluronic Acid fillers

Lip enhancement is also an excellent procedure for those who have lost the volume in their lips due to ageing and wish to restore their youthful appearance and plumpness of the lips. 

How Is Lip Enhancement Performed At Nishtha Wellness, Vadodara?

At Nishtha Wellness, lip enhancement is performed in the following ways:

  1. Fat Grafting
  • In this case, small amounts of fat is grafted from the buccal pads (cheeks) with the help of liposuction. This is done under local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
  • This fat is then medically made ready to be injected into the lips to give them a plump and voluminous look.

2. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

  • Small quantities of fillers are injected into the lips in order to increase their volume. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already available in the body and hence this method is very safe. 
  • The size of the syringes used for injecting the fillers is very small hence the pain is minimal.

Both these methods are safe and give excellent and natural-looking results.

How Is The Recovery After Lip Surgery?

  • After Lip Reduction

It may take a few days, even a week or two to ensure your sutures come out and you can expect your lips to completely heal during this period of time. It is common to experience soreness and swelling. Dr Hiren Bhatt will prescribe certain medications in order to control the pain and soreness. These must be taken as prescribed for a proper recovery. You will also be provided with instructions on how to care for the surgical site.
