Charles Kim will discuss all of your lip augmentation options beforehand, during your complimentary consultation at his Orange County offices.

Cheiloplasty, also known as lip reduction surgery, is a type of cosmetic surgery in which the patient’s lips are reduced in size and made to be symmetrical. Lip reduction surgery is sought after by those patients with either over-sized lips or who have had some kind of trauma or disease.
The lip reduction procedure is performed in Dr. K. Charles Kim’s Orange County surgical suite as an out-patient procedure. It usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete and will require only a regional or local anesthetic.
