Cheiloplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed on the lips to enhance their appearance. This procedure is often done to improve the balance, shape, size, or symmetry of the lips. It is also used to correct issues such as cleft lips, scars, or other congenital defects. There are several techniques used for cheiloplasty, such as lip augmentation with fillers or implants, lip reduction, or lip lift. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour and can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Recovery time varies but typically takes a few days to a week. Cheiloplasty is generally safe, but as with any surgery, there are risks involved. It is important to discuss your options and any potential risks with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
