lip reduction

Postby itpierre » Tue Sep 09, 2008 9:02 pm

I went to a doctor for a lip reduction and he gave me a lip augementation. He said my upper was bigger than bottom lip. He told me the best thing to do is to shape my lips. he took fat from my tummy for the lower lip. I am very disappointed of the result. My lips are extremely big now. just image I was very unconfortable with my lips before now even more.

I would like to reduce the lips. What can I do? I dont want this doctor anymore. Where are you locate? Since, you have experiences with ethnic/black patients I would like to see you.
Also, do you know any dermatologist that does skin whitening?
thank you

Dear itpierre,

I would recommend waiting before proceeding with any additional treatments until the swelling has resolved from your fat transfer procedure. This may take a number of months . . .I would say a minimum of three. I do perform lip reduction and have achieved very natural results from the procedure in patients of African descent. My plastic surgery practice is located in Chevy Chase, MD . . .just two blocks from the Washington DC line. I am also Co-Founder of Cultura Cosmetic Medical Spa in DC where we have experience with blending complexion to even out skin tone. I do not know of any dermatologist who specifically perform "skin whitening."

Take a look at my website to find all my contact details.

I hope this helps,

Dr. Harris
