Lip reduction uncomm: The most common lip procedure performed by plastic surgeons is lip augmentation or enhancement. Lip reductions are done by removing lip tissue inside the lip to reduce the size and hide the scars.

Yes: Hello and thank you for your excellent question. Lip surgery, believe it or not, was one of the fastest growing procedures in 2016, likely owing to increased "selfies". Many plastic surgeons perform lip reduction and/or augmentation procedures. I suggest that you seek consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
