Default lip reduction surgery > makes your lips look fake!?!

i seriously want lip reduction surgery. i was born with abnormally large lips -- i know most want that but it is not fun if you have them. i was teased in school and called horrible names that i can't write here since they were mean things about a certain ethnicity. i'm a man and i can't stand everyone thinks my lips are fake!!?

i have two questions. the first being if lip reduction is something that will end up looking natural or not. my second question is if a plastic surgeon can reduce my lips only by a little. that way they won't know i've had plastic surgery.

These links will help you regarding info about lip reduction:

Lip Reduction Surgery FAQ | From Yes They're Fake!

Some can look natural. It depends on what you have to work with as well as WHO you work with, which is extremely important. I looked at many before and after lip reductions by doing a simple google search, and saw some excellent work, as well as some horrible results.

let me get this right. lip reduction surgery either comes out great or very bad?!? i dont think i'm ready to take that risk right now. i am 28 right now. would it be possible my lips will shrink on their own as i get older?

on a side note > is it true that angelina jolie had lip reduction on her top lip when she was younger??!

There are no guarantees with any surgery, regardless of type or purpose. I wasn't saying lip reductions are either awful or great, but like I said, I've seen some good ones and some bad ones.

Jolie had a lower lip reduction when she was younger allegedly. She gets regular injections in her top lip, allegedly. I'm not sure what she gets now, but she started with collagen injections.

Well plastic newbie, I know you hate them, but I think natural big lips are a great asset to have! Remember the people that tease you are probably just jealous

The other thing to consider is that lips are similar to the eyes, in that a small change in their shape can make someone look downright weird. I don't know enough about lip reduction surgery to give sound advice one way or another, but this would certainly be a major concern of mine if I were you.

Like I said there are no guarantees, even if you go to the best board certified surgeon. Every scenario is different.

I don't know anyone who has gotten a lip reduction personally.

I also do not know anyone personally whom has undergone lip reduction surgery.

Would you mind posting a pictures of just your lips so we can get a better idea of what we are talking about

yea here is a pic. do you think lip reduction surgery would make them look out of place? my lips do fit my facial features but i still think i could getaway with having them smaller.

Leave that face alone!!! People pay much money for that type of look. I can't see your cheeks so well, but like I said people pay oh so much $$$ for lips like that. Stop begging for compliments ... just kidding!!!
