What is a Lip Repositioning Treatment?
Lip repositioning or lip lowering surgery is a fairly unknown cosmetic treatment. It involves making strategic incisions in your lip to prevent it from being hypermobile.
It can create a better-balanced smile where your lip no longer moves too much. Your smile will no longer have excessive gum display after you heal from your gummy smile surgery.
Who Needs Lip Repositioning Treatment
This treatment is for those who want a better smile. This is not done out of a need for the treatment as things such as root canals would be needed. Lip repositioning is primarily done for cosmetic purposes.
A lot of people have upper lips that are hypermobile. This results in their smiles showing off a lot of their gums above their teeth.
If you have this issue, it can make you self-conscious about your smile. You might notice that you never smile with your teeth for photos because of this. This treatment is for you if you want to be able to smile without having to worry about your gums being the center of attention.
Recovery Time for a Lip Repositioning Treatment
There is very little that you need to worry about when you are recovering from your gummy smile surgery. We generally warn patients against making big smiles during the two-week recovery period as to not disrupt their stitches.
You may feel some tightness in your lip during recovery. This is completely normal. A lot of people report that their lip looks fuller after they are finished with their recovery.
