Can Fat Removal Be Done In The Upper Mouth Area?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am just inquiring around volume reduction/fat removal of the upper mouth region (the mustache area for men). Mine is somewhat protruding/convex and I have had to resort to facial hair in order to reduce the effects of it. In a classic sense, a concave upper mouth is more aesthetically pleasing and enhances the shape of the lips.
Are there any methods in reducing this area such as lipo extraction or surgery?
I noticed your response to this question in realself and thought I would contact you. I have submitted a photo for assessment.
Very much appreciate your thoughts.
A: There is no surgical procedure to reduce fullness in the upper lip/upper mouth area. Fat extraction can be done to the sides of the mouth (perioral region) but not at the upper lip area.
